That ended up going nowhere. Whatever interests he builds in the set up, he usually fails in the follow through. I'd say that's his downfall as a writer.

It reminds me a bit of Chris Claremont's throwing out a dozen subplots in every issue of X-Men, many of which were never touched on again or returned to so many issues later we'd forgotten all about them. Johns has more discipline in my opinion that Claremont so it's not so bad here.

I hope Sand returns in a bigger role too. I kinda like his new look but it's a bit too "spooky" for my taste. I liked his military-style gear from the beginning of the last series. It seems like they're playing up the dream angle and playing down the geomorph thing, which is fine by me.

I'm not slagging either!

Those are good points on Wildcat. Him being an uncle figure is an interesting take and I did not look at it that way. Maybe they just want to use the Kingdom come characters and its a simple as that. All in all I am looking forward to JSA number 4.
