Farewell J'onn J'onzz

Martian Manhunter 1955-2008
Heart and soul of the Justice League
Lover of Oreo cookies
You will be missed beyond words

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.
