A couple of things have happened recently in the DC Comics Universe that have prompted me to write about them.
Firstly, Green Arrow — a superhero — has finally shot a villain in the head, with predictable results for the villain. Whether this action was justified, and why his fellow Justice Leaguers are showing some hypocrisy is something I touched on in this article for The-Trades.com with The Fall of Green Arrow (and Why Barry Allen is a Jerk).
Following that, the much-hyped Blackest Night miniseries has come to its conclusion. Wouldn’t you think that, if you were a villain who had died and were fortunate enough to be resurrected, you would alter the course of your new life to avoid the particular afterlife that awaits a villain? This is something else I felt the need to philosophize over with Where Were You Before the Brightest Day (or The Need for a Consistent Afterlife).
