Johns may have had long term plans for Hector and Lyta but figured if eh didn't have time to work it through to completion it was better to just drop it midstream rather than rush a conclusion.
> Last I knew Morpheus sent Hector to his eternal reward and Lyta called the Furies in on Morpheus as revenge for taking Daniel(or so she thought).That was at the beginning and end of Gaimens Sandman.

Yep- that was out of date with the first arc of JSA almost a decade ago. Hector was reborn and became the new Dr Fate in that first arc. Lyta came back into the picture a few years later and stayed largely in the background with no hint of what happened between the events of Sandman and "now" until she and Hector "died" again during the Spectre's war on magic. There was a panel implying Daniel had taken them into the Dreaming rather than let them die but either way they are gone for now from Justice Society reality.
