destiny hates everyone, If Jhon would just broke up with vixen I bet this wouldnt had happened.

Also Jhon seems a mix of Luke Cage and Shaft

Since this is several years down the line, John's semi-goatee finally grew to a beard and he shaved his head (oorrrrr lost his hair), I dunno why he shaved it in that final panel, I guess the death of your fiance makes you shave everything to go on revenge...

You made a little mistake in your recap. The Hawkgirl in JLU is Shayera, not Kendra

Wait hang on, they made a comic that's a continuation of JLU?

Why didn't anyone tell me? WHAT ELSE HAVE YOU KEPT FROM ME?

I might be mistaken, but I think JUSTICE LEAGUE BEYOND is about the future League from the Batman Beyond cartoon. I'm guessing this scene is a flashback.

Well! A female hero murdered in order to teach a male hero an important lesson about toying with fate, as well as motivating him to seek revenge! And she's not killed in battle, but as a helpless victim during a romantic dinner! Why, I'm astonished by the sheer originality and inventiveness of this plot twist!

To be fair, the guy who murdered her is a manifestation of pure negative emotion and thought (including sexism), who bears a grudge against John due to what happened in their (possibly hallucinated) past lives, so jumping him at dinner and murdering his fiance just to make him miserable isn't exactly out of character.

Doesn't excuse them killing Marii in such a cliched way, but it's not like there wasn't enough backstory to make some kind of justification for it.

Though really she should have been able to call upon the regeneration factor of worms or something to heal herself until they can get her to the Watchtower, if it wasn't instanteous.

From: [personal profile] jlbarnett
actually I'd call that an assassination more than anything else. Being a helpless victim would be like if she knew he was attacking and couldn't fight back or there was a battle and she was completely outclassed.

If there had been a puppy leaping out of the way of an explosion, it would have been a perfect storm of cliches.

I must have looked at that page like seven times before I saw that the Shadow Thief was behind Vixen.

It's a tad frustrating that writers resorted to this cliche to remove Vixen and pair up John and Shayera again. Then again, I guess a friendly mutual breakup wouldn't have been exciting enough.

It's not really necessary either. Didn't Bruce Timm claim that John and Shayera's son Warhawk would be born at least two decades after Unlimited was over?

No, but it would have been more realistic. People break up all the time - even after several years together. Instead we get the answer - how do we Shayera and John get together and make their fated baby? Kill Vixen! How original....NOT.

Wow...this feels kind of cheap. Not only is this whole scenario unoriginal, but Vixen was a pretty cool character and killing her off for the sake of John's so called "destiny" rubs me the wrong way. I'm pretty new to the concept, so I may be wrong, but isn't this an example of Women in Refrigerators? Ugh. :|

You are correct. Unfortunately, it is a concept you will soon find yourself very familliar with. We'll be here to comfort you with dirty jokes and what the fuckery.

I'd rather not become familiar with it, but I guess there isn't much of a choice, is there? I shall cling desperately to your dirty jokes and crack and we shall sing songs of "whyyyy" and "ugh".

I reject this reality, and substitute my own, in which Shayera decided she wanted to have a child and asked that John be the sperm doner because he's someone she likes and respects, and with Mari's full approval, and the kid gets to have two awesome moms who occasionally gang up on John when they think he's being stupid.

Seriously, what is it about Green Lanterns that causes so much fridging to happen in their vicinity?
