Well, there's the peculiarity of it all - if Tomar-Re died during the Crisis, and according to modern canon the Crisis never happened, what did kill Tomar?
I have always liked the character a great deal, but then I also liked Katma-Tui a great deal, when Geoff Johns surprised with his revival of Tomar-Re back in 2012 as a ghostly figure trapped in the limbo between life and death it seemed as if this was heading somewhere... yet confusingly it went nowhere, and the subplot of Tomar-Re's fate was never returned to.
It's no bad thing as such, death should, sometimes at least, mean death in comics. But there seemed to be something left awkwardly unaddressed about Tomar-Re's reasons for being in that limbo dimension...
