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... \(fear\)

Yeah his appearance is odd, and Katma wasn't there at the time as I recall.

Well Goldface killed Tomar-Re and as I look back I do shake my head at that. Goldface is approaching Tomar, he is clad in gold and thus immune to the ring yet Tomar and honor guard of the Corps and seasoned veteran user of the ring tries to blast him only for Goldface to get his hands on him and strangle him to death.....

....really, Tomar?

Also once upon a time, the blue ring gave John a vision of a possible future with him and Katma flying through the skies together. To my knowledge that hasn't been addressed and it was left vague as to whether it was indeed a vision of the future, or if John simply hopes to one day be reunited with Katma and the blue power capitalized on that to give him the vision.
