Bah, in a crossover that has "mass resurrection plot device" written all over it, getting killed is a minor inconvenience, like having to scrape dog poop off your shoe.

@KB

Yeah but it still stinks, doesn't it?

Hey, I'm a "Hal" man from way back. Take my word for it, being killed is far from the worst thing that can be done to a character. (In fact, my favorite Hal period was when he was dead: I am probably the only Hal/Spectre fan you'll ever encounter.)

I'm also a "Quasar" man from way back (bear in mind that Kyle is DC's answer to Quasar), and Quasar used to die all the time. Sometimes he'd die multiple times in one issue. Sometimes he'd mentally create things that would kill him. Sometimes he'd get ahold of the Ultimate Nullifier and say "Hey what's this thing do?" and kill himself. What I'm saying is, if a cosmic hero wants to be awesome, he's got to get used to dying and coming back like it's no big thang.

You know, I've been thinking Kyle was gonna buy the farm in pretty much every big crossover since Infinite Crisis.

I like Kyle as a character, but I hope they keep him dead long enough for it to mean something.

Fucking H.E.A.T.

What he said.

There's nothing H.E.A.T.y about what I said -- Devon asked whether I thought it stinks, and I put it in perspective. And again, since this is happening in the middle of a miniseries where we can reasonably expect tons of resurrections, Kyle's demise looks to be especially stink-free.

Actually the thing to worry about is if a violet ring happens to wander past and say, "Hey, there's someone who died like a second ago with love in his heart." We've seen that's how the violet rings work, after all.

What is H.E.A.T.?
