Blackest Night 8 leaves more questions than answers
The Weekly Crisis has a little list of those who were brought back. But who was left out? From some extra info I gathered elsewhere, Ralph and Sue Dibny, for example. So too in fact were Jean Loring, Aqualad, and even Kendra Saunders. Oh, and if I'm not mistaken, even Lilith Clay, Ted Kord, Vic Sage and Tim Drake's father are not amongst the resurrected?
I'm sorry, but this does not do much to prove they're willing to offer a Brightest Day. What it does tell is that they're still adamant about leaving Identity Crisis' damage in place (and if the real Capt. Boomerang is back, how do we know he won't still be depicted as out-of-character as he was in that monstrosity?), and even that of Countdown to Infinite Crisis. Cry for Justice already signaled this won't be exactly what they claim, and if Jack Drake is still dead, that's one more reason to doubt.
Message to DC: I'm sorry, but there's still quite a bit of improvement to be made.
I'll say in fairness that it's surprising they'd bring back Hank Hall, one of the earliest victims of DC's publicity stunts. But what if he ends up being characterized poorly nevertheless?
Update: on the other hand, I don't get the point of resurrecting Boston Brand(!). Doesn't that defeat the whole point of why Deadman was created in the first place?
Update 2: The Titans Tower Monitor sums it correctly: wish we could see Garth, Lilith and Kole again!
