Countless others before him? So they're not satisfied in making Phantom Stranger a rapist, with that one sentence they went and made him into a serial rapist?

Iiiii'm pretty sure the meaning there was that he's lived under a lot of aliases.

Doesn't his wife calling him both Stark and the Stranger imply that she knows the truth and accepts him as Stark since he took the good part of Stark and fused with it

I don't think it's clear when she made this realisation, when she was alive (in which case her rtationalisation abilities must be off the scale "My husband has become a lovely person, maybe he's someone else possessing his body") or when she arrived in heaven.

Neither case excuses his actions in the first place IMHO.

Erased from Time and History. Okay, considering how crap his existence has gotten, are they daring him to do it, just to "enjoy" oblivion?

Chris was the kid's babysitter and when the original Philip Stark aka Sineater came back he along with the stark wife and kids were killed, but while the stark family were suppose to killed by Sineater years ago , Chris was not so he got revived

It will be interesting if he actually does get erased from time and history but somehow survives and becomes an ghostly entity, a "phantom" if you will, who is a "stranger" to everyone

Wouldn't erasing the Phantom Stranger from time and history save Jesus Christ considering he is Judas? Wouldn't it also save Stranger a literal eternity of suffering? I think he'd call their bluff on that one.

I don't know, considering how bloody minded the universe in the new new 52 seems to be, I'd think it'd find some way to screw him over.

Since there seems to have been an element of transformation from Judas to Stranger, it might be that they are referring to his time as the Stranger, rather than his time as Judas as well.

I'm still not a fan of giving the Phantom Stranger a specific name/background/history/origin, nor of him going home to a wife and kids. It just seems like it totally goes against the character's very nature. But that's the New 52 for you. Of course, now they've removed the wife and kids, go figure.

I do kind of like Zauriel's new look.

Please tell me it's not in an attempt to make him younger, "hipper," and more easy for the boys who buy comics (wait, wasn't the average reader's age 25 years ago, and growing older all the time?) to identify with as a swinging bachelor.

Nah I'm pretty sure it was intended all along, because the Stranger has to always, ALWAYS be alone, and if that means the universe has to murder an innocent family for that to happen so be it.

What, MORE of this? No, fuck this bullshit. It was disgusting in the previous posts, and its disgusting now. I cannot say how horrible it is that people are 'meant' to die and that saving them means you're meddling with fate.

And I see how somehow his wife realized the truth. Pro tip, writers: just because someone might forgive another does not absolve them or make the relationship super duper messed-up.
