Bringing the past to the present
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.
He'll be back!
