Brightest Day #23 Cover Revealed

DC has revealed the cover to the penultimate issue of the maxi-series Brightest Day, and it features Hawkman and Hawkgirl in... slightly different forms than the last time we saw them.

Definitely fuels the speculation regarding the "major" heroes which The Entity returned to life being reborn as Elementals.  Firestorm, at least, has some precedent in this field (as Honor-Wing Bearer Shag, who put me onto this image, has speculated).  The Hawks and Aquaman I can buy (but why are there two Air Elementals?) but Manhunter?  If he was an Elemental it would be for Mars I would presume and not Terra.  I'm still a few issues behind most of the rest of the blogosphere thanks to my monthly shipment schedule, but I remain super-interested in where things are going.  Especially in the light of the news that Geoff Johns is going to be writing an Aquaman series of some kind come this fall, which further supports the rumors regarding James Robinson penning a Hawkman book.  (Further speculation puts Peter Tomasi on a Manhunter book and... someone on Firestorm?)

Brightest Day #23 is due April 6.
