Just wondering if the whole "you're going to die" thing could be a red herring to make people think Lance is going to die, when in fact he might be reborn as Magog. A few things to consider:

1) Lance does look similar to Magog on Alex Ross's covers.
2) Both Magog and Lance shoot energy through a weapon.
3) Lance is a soldier and probably wouldn't have a problem executing his enemies a la Magog in Kingdom Come.

Minor nit-picking: Magog doesn\'t appear to have the pyramid-eyeball thing on his arm like Lance does. However, it could easily be explained away that he outgrew it, moved it, internalized it, etc etc etc. It may be concealed under some part of his armor.

Interesting discussion. Personally I think Magog is just himself but if I had to pick another character he may I would say....another Superman! as thier body types are the same. (or maybe thats just the artist's style) as always good reading to you all.

...is that I suspect you're correct about Lance eventually becoming Magog. The thing he wears on his arm sure looks a LOT like the head of Magog's staff.
