Subj: KINGDOM COME: Magog was right!

I get the Magog was the Liefeldesque anti-hero that was the strawman "wrong path" super anti-hero.

But the world turns to hell because some guy kills the Joker who royally has it coming, to put it mildly?! If anything, the world would go to hell because everyone is too cowardly or feckless to render justice! That would be a sign of a total decline and collapse of the system!

I get that Magog's action is a contras to the the belief of old heroes of Superman's generation that all life is sacred. But it IS because life is sacred that the Joker should die. Can some people not wrap their head around this idea?

If I were the public (or Lois or one of the dead Planet staff) I'd be disgusted w/Superman's self-righteousness in the face of their MURDERS!

The whole shtick of villains coming back over and over again is a conceit of a monthly genre. How it turned into a "moral message" that adults take seriously is beyond me.
