Waiting In The Wings -- 03/03/2010

Do we have any Hawk-stuff in shops this week?  Let's find out!

Justice League of America: Cry For Justice #7 -- Hawkgirl and Hawkman both were taken out in spectacular fashion by Prometheus last issue.  I imagine they will at least make token appearances here.  The timeline of all this is confusing (this must happen before Blackest Night, right?) but I have enjoyed this series and am looking forward to reading it all in one sitting.  I like the earnestness to the proceedings, which some folks call "camp" but clearly isn't camp.  

Furthermore, let me also take this moment to address the folks out there complaining about Prometheus taking out the Justice League: THAT'S WHAT HE DOES.  You have to put over your baddies to make them legitimate threats, and I can't think of a better way than wiping out the entire League on the freaking Satelite.  And not just going in and pounding everyone, but using planning and tactics to do it really re-establishes Prometheus as what Morrison intended him to be: the anti-Batman.  That having been said, he'll get his at some point, preferrably from Ollie and Roy.
