Thoughts about Death and Rehabilitation

The concept of Blackest Night, I believe, is that with the Antimonitor as the battery, and Black Hand as the man in charge or something, the dead are going to rise, and make life miserable for the Green Lanterns, not to mention all the other color corps.

This of course will give us a chance to see all of our favorite dead people, presumably as evil zombies or something. It has already been leaked that J'onn J'onnz is going to be a Black Lantern as well as the old Superman that Superbrat Prime offed back in Infinite Crisis. So I assume that just about everyone taking a dirt nap will be fair game to be a Black Lantern. I'm not quite sure what is going to happen with people who are dead, but still active among the superhero community,such as Deadman and Ralph and Sue. Will they be immune?

I'm more interested in some ways in the aftermath of Blackest Night. There are just too many wonderful characters that are dead, and I would be tickled to my toes, if there is some way that they end up rehabilitated and back among the living at the conclusion. People like J'onn for instance, or Ted, Ralph, Sue, Dmitri, the Trickster and the original Doctor Polaris. Not Maxima though, because I never liked her very much...and as usual it is all about ME!

Max Lord is the most important however. We NEED Max! Therefore I am forming a society dedicated to the revival of Maxwell Lord. We'll call it StoRM. The Society to Rehabilitate Max.

The Justice League NEEDS him again! Granted it would be a little awkward for he and Wonder Woman to be in the same room together, but presumably, they'd get over that. But just think of it. They have that nice new Hall of Justice in Washington D.C. now. Max could go over and lobby at the Capitol! He could give tours to the sixth graders, and make a bundle on the stuff in the gift shop!

It would be heaven.

And then we could open up another Justice League book, with the character from the old JLI, as a League of Back-up Heroes or something. Heck, if Marvel can have a dozen or so Avengers books, I don't think that an additional Justice League book would be out of the way. We could put Jaime in it, and get him away from those losers over at the Teen Titans. Get Scott and Barda back. Throw in Hawkman since he is all pissed off at the Justice Society. Add Ice, and Fire and Guy just for fun, and to give them something to do, and Ryan Choi for the same reason. Make Gail Simone write it, and Kevin Maguire draw it.

It would SO be heaven.

Wanna know how to get Max back? Stop ignoring the fact Max was basically a robot before Countdown to Infinite Crisis. Have the Max that did all the e-e-e-e-e-evil shit be a clone gone bad that locked robot/cyborh/what does it matter Max somewhere. Poof! You have Max back and all the good memories are untainted once again...

Haha, not likely, but I'm all for it! :-D

I thought they put Maxwell Lord's brain inside of Brother Eye to make Lord Eye...

Anyway I think they should also include Ted Kord. He is alive! (Geoff Johns confirmed he was alive as of Booster Gold 1,000,000.)

I wanna see Kyle deal with the legion of girlfriend Black Lanterns come back to haunt him.

I've stopped whining about bringing back Ted, since as you say, I'm pretty sure that he's back, but simply laying low.

And there are lots and lots of ways to bring back Max. The REAL Max, not the crazy one.

That's one big posse of Kyle's ex-girlfriends to have to deal with!

I have faith that any day now, the real Max Lord and the real L-Ron will show up at Justice League headquarters, wearing Kooeykooeykooeyan shirts. (They were beachcombers on Kooeykooeykooey all this time, see, and that's why they haven't heard about the whole "Imposter Max" thing!)

That makes perfect sense to me.

Maybe they can fix time so that he actually LIVED through the neck twisting. But have his head stuck facing the opposite direction. Kind of like Torque from NIGHTWING.

I miss Torque.
