This is from 52 Week Twenty-Seven. It's written by Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka, and Mark Waid; the breakdowns are by Keith Giffen and the pencils by Shawn Moll. The cover is by J.G. Jones.

Ralph Dibny is traveling with the helm of Doctor Fate (really Felix Faust in disguise) trying to find a way to bring back Sue. In this issue he asks the Spectre if he can bring her back to him; the Spectre grins and replies "Absolutely."

In the 52 trade paperback one of the writers said that this was correcting a continuity error from Identity Crisis #1; when Sue is waiting for Ralph she hears a sound coming from inside the house. You're meant to think it's the killer, except Jean traveled to the Dibnys' home via the phone lines.

Because Jean was seriously unbalanced, her whole plan is nucking futs from start to finish.

Her "I didn't mean to kill her" falls sort of flat when one considers that she is respsonsible for what happened to Jack Drake too, and seems unbothered by that.

Seriously IC is atrociously written and nothing can excuse it's dreadful excuse for a plot.

I always thought it's kind of obvious that she brought the flamethrower along because she was crazy. Most probably she's got a rubber chicken and some Kryptonite among those other weapons.

Now, seriously: She was nuts, so she fucked up big time, end of story. Yeah, it's a cop out and has nothing to do with real psychological instabilities, but there#s various sore points with that in comics, so I#m willing to take the bad with the good. :D
