Blackest Night

First time poster, so if I'm doing anything wrong please let me know. :)

Spoilers for Blackest Night #1.

Hawkman and Hawkgirl are discussing their ~destined~ relationship and Hawkgirl's refusal of it when, well, this happens:

Ordinarily, I'd be right with you guys with the gore, the death, etc. However:

1) Johns brought him into this world, he can take him back, too.
2) Speaking of which, they'll be back. By next issue. :p Besides, the characters have the reincarnation gimmick, now. They get a "get out of Heaven" free card, similar to Phoenix, thanks to said gimmick.
3) Their power levels rise via DEATH? Oh, sh--!!
4) I actually like the motivation of the bad guys: they're hunting all the people that have come back to life. And boy, there've been a number of them.
5) His nose. Jesus christ, what's up with Ralph's nose. That's...that's NOT twitching. And I'm scared.

their power rises via emotion. Scar took out a guardian heart but couldn't use it because guardians are emotionless. The dibney's register rage and love in the hawks before killing them

Which would explain the difference in expression between Ralph and Sue when they absorb the hearts. Sue's face has a peaceful and comforted look, Ralph's even more ragey than he already looked.
