> OK so now we have official confirmation that Lance Corporal Reid, decendant of FDR is Magog. I think DC has reached a new low in telegraphing plotlines from a mile off. It was so painfully obvious that this was going to happen that it almost seemed like a red herring. A little creative writing and subtle story telling never killed anyone DC.

Yeah, Johns has been telephoning his plots in for this series so far. \:\(

It's perfectly readable and light years ahead of the X-Books etc but this new series falls well short of the standard set by the Previous. It's actually a growing problem with Johns work that he is relying more and more on old continuity and concepts rather than innovative new stories. Whether it's diving into the Kingdom Come universe, ressurecting Barry Allen, Earth-2, The Legion or Braniac he's taking the ultra-soft route to success lately. He's Lost himself in misplaced Nostalgia.
The only original and truly stellar concepts he's delivered of late is in his Green Lantern work.

Is he out of steam? I put it to you....
