Batman and Spiderman have been around decades and decades and existed in every possible medium you could imagine. Every potential story line has happened.

Kyle Rayner had been around for about five minutes before they went straight to gratuitous and graphic violence against an innocent and "non-combatant" character.

Kyle Rayner's "birth" as a character was born out of crass exploitation of violence and the first really important thing that ever happened to him continued that theme.

And no... it's NOT the same thing as Uncle Ben getting shot because of Peter.
