    What was going to happen to Killer Croc in the Williams/Blackman run on Batwoman and where there run was going in general. After Batwoman Annual #1 the whole series went downhill real fast and Batwoman has never quite recovered as a character in the comics.

    Did the crew of the Lost Light ever find the Knights of Cybertron? No, they didn't because Unicron ate that whole universe but the main plot of The Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye/The Transformers: Lost Light was a ship of misfit Autobots and Decepticons was going to find the ancient Knights of Cybertron to rediscover their lost culture and writer James Roberts only used that plot as an excuse to write Transformers stories and I think he stated that the Knights of Cybertron never really interested him at all.

    The plotline was resolved, actually. I'd rather not spoil it, but more than meets the eye actually did an excellent job resolving their subplots. I can only think of a few that went unresolved.

Aside from Lost Army getting the plug pulled then having the Edge of Oblivion pick up almost none of the plot points, the GLC find their way back to this universe. Okay great.... but what the hell happened in the first place???

    TRINITY OF SIN - What the heck was the deal with The Question? I guess that version will have to remain an enigma wrapped in a riddle suffocated by a doomed premise...
    Guaranteed Johns, much as I love him, had no idea whatsoever who the Question was going to end up being or even how the story was going to play out before committing it to the page.

    You are absolutely right. J.M. DeMatteis' Phantom Stranger run is brilliant. And Fernando Blanco's art! Breathtaking. His depictions of heaven and hell are wonderful.

    Nothing more frustrating than an abandoned story arc. We all hope it'll conclude or finish up in a later issue, but sometimes story arcs or plots we've been loving just get abandoned and ignored. Typically happens as a casualty of a new creative team coming in, or victim to the publisher's need to start a new volume with a #1 issue, or just plain laziness.

    Between 2008 and now, what is your pick for the worst case of an abandoned story line?
    Wonder Woman saw a great deal of sabotage from DiDio. His silliness saw the abandonment of the original Amazons Attack as well as the evolution of the Pantheon and the follow up war with Darkseid. Those get my vote.

    The Gonzalez siblings just disappear in Slott’s run of Spider-Man despite Slott setting Vinny up as a disciple of Green Goblin.

    Nightcrawler no longer having a soul has yet to be resolved to my satisfaction. Sure, it was mentioned in X-Men Gold, but it's pretty much been swept under the rug since.

    Ginny Hex and what was in the back of her truck?
    I think restorative nostalgia is the number one issue with comic book fans.
    A fine distinction between two types of Nostalgia:

    Reflective Nostalgia allows us to savor our memories but accepts that they are in the past
    Restorative Nostalgia pushes back against the here and now, keeping us stuck trying to relive our glory days.

    The New 52 integration of the Wildstorm Universe and the Daemonites that was leading to some sort of crossover before comic sales for New 52 took a plunge off the cliff.

    Sadly, mergers are often like that.

    I think a lot of readers just gave up on it. Or it just means that the "soul" is really not about the human idea of one and you cant really lose it as long as you are still yourself in the end. I'm not sure but maybe that.

    The Wedding of Kate Kane and Maggie Sawyer that never happened in Batwoman. The first meeting between Kate Kane and Jamie Sawyer, Maggie's daughter, which did happen but was underwhelming to but it mildly and the set up that Jamie learns that Kate is Batwoman never went anywhere. All thanks to that idiot Dan DiBio.

    Going back more than 10 years, but I ran across something in my back issues. In Uncanny X-Men (vol 1), circa issue 105 or so (1977-ish), a fan writes in to talk about Professor Xavier being legally dead. In the "old' X-Men days, pre "Giant Size", Professor Xavier was believed dead and all of his assets, including the Mansion, were transferred to Scott Summers (Cyclops). I don't recall this being addressed in the "new" relaunch...or even to date.

    Obviously, I don't have 100% recall of every little X-plot element, but was this ever brought up, from 1977 to today? Even if it was a throwaway line of dialouge and only addressed in a word balloon. Like: "well, Professor, I just settled all your affairs over your supposed death and you're fully back in charge of your assets... hey, it's Garrok!".

    Gonna have to say, it's hard to do worse for any story than Carol Danvers' sexual assault and pregnancy arc from Avengers #197. 100% glad it's never mentioned.
