His death in Identity Crisis made me so sad.

Good job on the expressions of the jury!

I need to get around to reading this... Scotty, don't hurt me!

For once I have the perfect icon.

Have you read Madame Xanadu yet?! *eyeballs you*

Ha! You fail at comics fanboying.

and the shop was sold out

Ooh, that's actually good news. Maybe. Unless the owner just under-ordered...

Oh, now be kind to Scotty. I'm trade-waiting on Xanadu just because the first book is such a screaming deal. Twelve bucks for ten issues? In color? Oh HELL yeah!

MX is so good I want the comics AND the trades.

Maybe I went to far with that... anyway, BUY MADAME XANADU!

Nice scene perhaps, but amazingly bad legalize. Victim impact statements don't come into play until after the accused is convicted.

I liked Manhunter concept wise, but execution always seemed to come up short.

I have to agree. Although I think it wasn't until after the timeskip that the writer dropped the ball. Once it went from Kate killing super villians and living on the edge of hero/villian in the eyes of the superhero community to Kate being all buddy buddy with everybody and not killing people it lost a lot of its charm.

Y'know, if you've GOT to kill off your heroes, you should at least throw in a few scenes like this. Generally, it seems to play out like just another plot point - sometimes you'll see the killing, sometimes not; either way, there'll be a splash page with one of their fellow heroes looking all serious and saying "(fill in the black)... is DEAD", and then there'll be a few scattered pages of various people going "He's dead? I can't believe it!", and then there'll be a big explosion or something, and everyone will forget about it, unless editorial policy demands otherwise. Heroes deserve better than that - they're PEOPLE, dammit. Fictional, yes, but in the context of their fictional universe, they are people, and they deserve more than a quickly forgotten, unmourned death. When people die, they leave a gulf behind in the minds of their friends and family, and tears rush in to fill it - a hero deserves more than a few isolated teardrops, they deserve a tide of them. And Firestorm always struck me as a really nice guy - he deserved a memorial. It's nice to see he got one.

Yes, completely. Partly I liked this because I read Firestorm a long time ago and there were some awesome issues. This was a nice sendoff and I didn't hate the new guy.
