The solicit for Requium says:

"A very special FINAL CRISIS one-shot honoring the passing of a great hero who's been a staple in the DC Universe for years. All that remains is one final memory that the League experiences together as they must fulfill his last wishes or die trying"

Why would the Justice League be fulfill the last wishes of a Justice Society member? Maybe they would assist the Society but do you think the JSA would just sit by if Alan had been killed even if his last wishes were for the League to do something? I think whoever dies will be a current or former League member or at least have very specific ties to them.

As indicated in the opening pages of issue #1 of the current JSA series, the "newer" generation of heroes (i.e. the JLA) absolutely reveres the originals, including Alan Scott among that group. They were the trailblazers and standard-bearers for everyone among that group.

If it turns out that it *is* Alan that makes a deathbed request of some assembled heroes, I'm guessing that JSA guys will be in attendance with the JLA guys. Out of reverence for the passing of a great role model for their group, I think the JLA folks would be honored to help out.

It would be like if you were African-American and Rosa Parks asked you from her deathbed to do something for her. If you had any sense of pride, appreciation, and reverence for what she represents, you'd get to work on that favor whether you marched with her or not.

Plus, look how much cross-over there is between the teams. Black Canary, Captain Marvel, Hawkman, and Power Girl (off the top of my head) have been members of both. I think Alan Scott was even a JLAer for a while in the 70's maybe, IIRC. And they just recently had a cross-over between the two titles that demonstrates how much they intersect one another's respective orbits.

The League working their nards off to fulfill Alan Scott's last wish doesn't seem that far-fetched to me.

My 2 cents.
