    Default The worst abandoned plot lines of the last 10 years?

    First time posting in this forum, hope this is the right place for it.

    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?

    First thing that came to my mind:
    GREEN LANTERN - Lost Army/Edge of Oblivion. For NO apparent reason, the entire GLC disappears from this universe and pops up in the universe previous to this one. Interesting premise, the GLC far from home, on the run, what's a young Krona doing there? etc... 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...

    ULTIMATIUM

    This event was a disaster, but who on Earth picked up the body of Dr. Strange Jr.? Was I supposed to assume it was Clea or Dr. Strange Sr.?

    Where is Rose Wilson's mom? Rose Wilson determined her mom was still alive when she didn't return during Blackest Night. Went looking for her and ... nothing.
