    Realistically at this point, so many many years after she was murdered back in Action Comics Weekly, I expect there is little interest in the character. But nevertheless she was a fairly popular Corps member back in the day, and one of my own favourites at that.

I'm really surprised Geoff Johns never brought her back when he was writing Green Lantern. He brought back a lot of dead GL's, even Arisia. Speaking of Arisia, it's sad she's back but given nothing to do and zero dialogue. But I see her frequently in the comic, lingering in the background. And I keep wishing Venditi would DO something with her but he never does. \:\(

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
