Have they forgotten that this is the same character that MURDERED the Human Bomb recently in Infinite Crisis? He didn't just kill him, he beat him to death for pity sake. You would think there would be a superhero lynching party out trying to find this guy or a bounty on his severed head. Instead we have him reduced to a comedy relief sidekick.

If they truly want to write dramatic stories there has to be consequences following up these actions.

Well if someone can site the specific issue and title this appears in I would certainly like to verify the accuracy.
