Earth 2 #1

Apokolips led by Steppenwolf has wiped out Metropolis and pretty well conquering Earth and in a last mad desperate gamble. The Trinity of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman manage to free the world from the Parademon grip, sacrificing themselves in the process in grand fashion.

Five years later on the anniversary of the Trinity deaths to save the earth.

Sitting silently by himself in the woods depress by Joan words. Jay Garrick meets Mercury after witnessing him crash near by in a crater.

Poor Jay Garrick. If only his woman knew her place, and didn't go off to have a career and life of her own. Man, bitches, huh? Guess he'll just have to become yet another blandly forgettable 'gritty' superhero to heal the wound. Wee lamb.

Wait... Are trying to say, that women looking for career and life on her own are often potrayed as "bitches", or are you actually defending Joan in this?

I think captainbellman was using that easily misunderstood thing called sarcasm.

Both, though the former more than the latter. I actually like Joan in this scene much better than Jay, because Robinson is writing it specifically so that we'll like Jay and hate her.

And because this a lousy, exploitative way to motivate a superhero.
