Filling a request from [personal profile] busterella.

This guy has the most perfect drop evar on The Batman.

When suddenly dun dun dun

I'm not sure I can adequately explain the plot, but here's the essentials: Bats has sent a strike team made up of Green Arrow, Batgirl, Katana, Geo-Force and Metamorpho overseas to stop the launch of a rocket filled with unknown but probably genocidal payload. As will usually happen in BatO, the mission turns into a hairball. But...

At least one rocket launches as Metamorpho tries to stop it. Ollie thinks Rex has been killed (though I'm not sure that's even possible.)

And then - nothing. You'd think this revelation would be earthshaking, but the Dibnys don't show up again until the War in Hell mini.

As best I can tell this is not already on here. I think it was probably posted new before the Great Disaster on LJ; either that or it was left untagged to avoid spoilers. I'm going to tag it appropriately, though.

Do we have to refer to the shutting down of the LJ comm as the Great Disaster? I'd prefer to save that term as an insulting short hand for Countdown.

Also I want to know why these Ghosts didn't go through the same problems as Deadman with their Black Lantern corpses.

Considering Deadman had a significant part in the BN: Batman mini and considering the role of the Black Lantern Dibnys in the main series, one would have thought Johns would have at least registered the point that the Dibnys souls are still out there while this is all going on. But he hasn't.

We don't refer to Countdown as "The Great Disaster" because there's no such thing as Countdown.

"Countdown"? Is that some kind of powerdrink?

No, there is a Countdown (obligatory shiver). It just that whenever anybody mentions Countdown (obligatory shiver) they're forced to shiver in response.

My eyes! My eyes! It burns!

And as funny as this moment was, it is both sad (from Mary Marvel's characterization POV) and hideously drawn (like most of Countdown).
