Default Are you happy with who came back?

Most of them were pretty obviously coming, though there were a couple surprises.

The original Captain Boomerang, though. Really? Was anyone out there clamoring for his return? Smacks of nostalgia for nostalgia's sake... Geoff or Didio saying "I want my Captain Boomerang back!" and basically making that happen. Just 'cuz.

Good to see Jade. I've said in the past, as soon as Geoff pulled rank and yanked Kyle out of the Ion role, the whole purpose, meaning, and significance to her death went "Poof!"... so yeah, they might as well resurrect her, right?

Extant/Monarch back to life getting a hero's welcome and already talking shit strikes me as odd. Shouldn't he walk, like, straight to the JSA and apologize for killing a bunch of their members? And to Dove, for killing her, too?

Undecided about Max Lord. On the one hand it's good to see a villain like him back in the fold... on the other hand, his resurrection trivializes the outcome/payoff of a couple of big storylines.

Aquaman, most will agree had a nonsense death anyway. Good to see him back in form. Hopefully they'll at least give a nod to the other guy running around calling himself Aquaman (who he was actually kind of mentoring when he was the Sea Dweller).

Hawkman and Hawkgirl, indifferent but bordering on dislike, at least for Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman/whatever. I think they had a good thing with Kendra (when she was alive, that is) and now they've succeeded in making both Hawkman and Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman fairly toxic to try and follow. Congratulations, DC.

If they're really making Firestorm a hybrid with both Firestorms, I guess that's could work out. It's messed up that Jason's girlfriend is still dead. Is that just to make sure Jason is "the brooding half" of Firestorm?

What do you think?

For the most part I am happy with all that came back. Some I know and some I dont but I cant wait to learn more about them.

yeah... overall i'm pretty happy with everyone that came back...

Jade i'm extactic with... J'onn... no surprise there... Aquaman came as a bit of a surprise, as did the Hawks...

Yeah, overall, seeing who came back actually made Blackest Night worthwhile for me

Mixed. Glad Aquaman's back(again) and hopeful that they have (good NEW and original) stories to tell with him. I'm kind of excited to see Maxwell Lord back. I don't want him ending up as a knockoff Luthor, but again, I hope they have something in mind as to why he's back. The Hawks, I have never cared for. And that included Hank Hall. Everyone else is just a solid, "I don't care if you live or die."

I was excited for Jade, J'onn, and Aquaman's return. The only return that I didn't like was Lord's and that's only because of the bad ass way he died.

I am happy to see Aquaman, Jonn, and Jade back without a doubt. I'm somewhat indifferent to the Hawks and Ronnie being back, but Ronnie's relationship with Jason might be interesting. Max Lord had too good a death to be back. I could care less about Hank Hall or Digger, and we already knew about Reverse Flash.

Are the people in the 4 page spread the only ones who were resurrected or is it open ended for others to emerge as "reborn"?

I think its somewhat open ended and they only showed a select few on that spread.

I was happy that J'onn came back, and Aquaman, and the Hawks (though I don't know what to think about Hawkgirl- or is she Hawkwoman, now?- going from Kendra to Shiera. Is she the same person with more memories, or is Kendra just gone?), since they are DC staples, and ones without ready, established replacements in place.

I'm glad that Firestorm is back, (though Jason was never really "gone", just trapped). Should be interesting seeing how that works out now, which I assume will be addressed in BD. Gotta be some hard feelings there that no amount of "that wasn't really ME doing that" will be able to totally erase.

Kind of glad Jade is back, as her death was kind of pointless, but I really don't want a GL-related love triangle developing- yet can't see any way to totally avoid it believably.

Osiris, Captain Boomerang, Maxwell Lord, or Hawk, I couldn't care less. I kind of assume that Lord will play into the JL:Generation Lost series, which may be the bulk of the reason he is back.

Obviously Thawne HAD to come back, for Flash:Rebirth to make any sense, but if it weren't for that, I wouldn't really care about him coming back either.

Deadman just earned a big, "Huh?" from me. What possible point is there in that? I really hope that goes away, since I like the character.

Perhaps I should start a thread about what people thought of certain characters NOT coming back?

I'm kind of hoping that the mention of Ralph and Sue NOT coming back might mean we will see them as the Ghost Detectives that were teased at the end of 52 (then never followed up on to my knowledge).

I'm kind of surprised that Tempest didn't come back. Not that I really care about the character, but I kind of figured that any "major" characters who seemed like they died during BN just to show us that things were "serious" would be back at the end.

I dunno. They listed all those folks, too, as the white rings were going out. And I saw exactly 12 rings in the panel where Black Hand was puking them up, AND in the spread where Nekron was getting pasted. I think that might be all.

Bzzd, Cythos, Laira, Jack T Chance, Kehaan - all of them should have come back. Why? Well why not? It's not like their deaths really matter anymore. I'd rather see any of them over Max Lord and Hawk.

It's odd that in what is supposed to be a Green Lantern event, no Green Lanterns came back to life.

True, unless you include "GL-for-a-few-weeks-max" Jade.

Of course, as I have been told on numerous occasions, this wasn't really SUPPOSED to be a GL event, but a DCU event.

Does this mean we have two Professor Zooms now?...

Anyways, glad to see J'onn and Arthur back. Maxwell Lord and Capt. Boomerang I didn't see coming, mainly because I thought they wouldn't be back. Same goes for Hawk. Jade is cool, I guess. Never really read anything with her, though...

Firestorm could be a cool set-up. Part Ronnie, Part Jason, throw in a little "You killed my girlfriend and I'm having a hard time dealing with that while being a superhero with you", and you could have a readable story.

The Hawks... Well, come on, who didn't see that coming? Honestly.
