Well, crap.



I don't have the heart to get this and scan it. You can read the lead up scans at:

Keep scrolling all the way past the Who's Who interlude.

RANT:
I just..was so fucking happy that there was an alternate universe version of Flash and Green Lantern who were gay and happy together. Because I know that'll never happen in the regular universe. DC would take a look and go, "there's not enough drama in that relationship!" And Barry would leave Hal for Ollie--because the CW audience is bigger and supports Flash/Arrow--and then Ollie would be magically drugged to cheat on Barry by Rais al Ghul because he wants more kids or whatever, yadda yadda. So this was the best of both worlds! Horrible het relationships but TRUE FRIENDSHIP LOVE FOREVER between lifemates Hal and Barry, while their Earth 36 counterparts got both gay and happiness! Yay! A world where this

could be canon.

Minor bright side: there is a track record of Flashes coming back from death in a crisis. Not to mention people Superman holds in that pose not staying dead.

Read this earlier today. The whole plot was just bad, but Red Racer dying was just the cherry on top of a crap salad.

You'd think in this day and age there'd be a screening method to prevent this from happening.
Or failing that, just any time someone says "alternate universe" and "they all die" in a sentence, someone opens up a trapdoor and they fall to their doom.
Grant Morrison goes and creates a whole multiverse for other writers to play in, and the only thing they ever think of to do with it is kill things.

Ugh.

Good grief. I had no idea this was going on. I'm a sucker for multiple dimensional variant superhumans. But it sucks about Red Racer, that's for sure.
