You're right of course. My point was the Countdown Mary and the Morrison/FC Mary didn't even attempt to match up. It's as if the DC writers didn't know what they were doing - only that Mary should be "evil".

And yes the fact that Mary killed someone (cutting the female Atomic Knight in half) in FC was the worst part for me of the already horrible way she was presented (the rest of it could easily be retconned/forgotten away). I think that was the first time any of the "good" Marvel Family members (Billy, Mary, Freddy) had killed anyone in DCU continuity and the fact that it was Mary and that Morrison did it so casually is very, very sad.
It didn't help that Mike Carlin (who edited the second half of Countdown and who also edited the Power of Shazam series) when confronted by the criticisms of Mary's behavior in Countdown at the end (when she makes the deal with Darkseid) said in defense of the way she was written "well at least she hasn't killed anybody so it's not that bad" KNOWING as he said it that Morrison had Mary kill someone in FC#3 which would come out 3 months later. He really had to go there.
