So... Did DC kill him?

(First Blue Beetle, now Martian Manhunter. Is no second-stringer safe?)

It happened in a single panel in Final Crisis #1 with the circumstances expanded on in Final Crisis: Requiem. It's been a while since I've gotten misty-eyed over a comic, but Requiem managed to do so.

Ah, you always need a high profile death to make it a Summer "event" comic.

Thankfully, J'onn's senseless death is treated with the respect it deserves in Final Crisis: Requiem. I'm seriously thinking of going to the Baltimore Comicon so I can meet the writer, Peter Tomasi, and thank him.
