I Suppose I Might As Well

I’ve had some time to think.
BLACKEST NIGHT: TITANS #2
Written by J.T. Krul
Art and cover by Ed Benes & Rob Hunter
Variant cover by Brian Haberlin
Titan-on-Titan violence! Black Lantern Hawk has his talons set for the female Hawk and Dove! Meanwhile, Red Star faces a frightful family reunion with Black Lanterns Pantha and Wildebeest, and Donna Troy faces her worst possible nightmare! Plus, Black Lantern Terra terrorizes Beast Boy! Continuing the 3-issue miniseries from writer J.T. Krul (JSA CLASSIFIED, Fathom) and superstar artist Ed Benes (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA)!
I’m cautious. I’m happy Pantha is being used, though not how she got there. But I have some uneasiness.
I worry she’s just going to be the butt of bad, overdone head jokes.
I worry it might end up being a horribly cliched resolution – Red Star learning to let go and leave Pantha and BW to rest (despite, of course, other dead heroes coming back anyways).
I’m hoping they bring back the dead like Pantha after the event is done. They can’t keep Martian Manhunter dead, can they?
