    So much from Johns' Justice League, including but not limited to..

    What was the a plan for Superman & Wonder Woman's relationship?
    How was Superman/Wonder Woman a threat to the future, at least enough to erase two Booster Golds?
    Who was Brother Eye's new programmer? Didn't seem to be the Crime Syndicate ("him") and GRID didn't exist yet.
    What happened to Element Woman?
    What was the plan for Lex Luthor in the Justice League?
    What was the plan for Captain Cold in the Justice League?
    What was the plan for Lex Luthor knowing Batman's secret identity?
    What was the plan for baby Darkseid?

    Some of these might have been answered, I'd completely checked out by Darkseid War, as half of John's Justice League run felt like unexplored/halted ideas or endings changed to reflect the next thing he thought of.

    Dan Watters' Azrael was incredible, a constant delight and perhaps too good for this world (but not the Forth). For the love of St. Dumas, DC, give us more!!!

    Recent, but still annoying that Warren Ellis spent two years building out a very interesting "Wild Storm" universe/imprint -- that was updated for modern times with major tech conglomerates controlling the world -- and now we're never going to get more stories to emerge from it. Wildcats would've been awesome, imo.

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!".
    There was also an issue in the 90s or early 2000s where Juggernaut came to the Mansion to claim ownership of it because Xavier was in prison at the time. Juggernaut even brought his lawyer.

    I don't think this was ever followed up either.

    I agree with this. So much potential left on the table.

    Did we ever find out what the deal was with the woman who apparently had the actual car from the cover of Action #1 over in one of the Superman books?
    Read my free superhero webcomic, The Ill!

    Amazing since Action #1000 had "The Car" by Geoff Johns Richard Donner which retconned the scene and Butch Mason. And then Bendis has the female villain with the car in Action 1006 with no follow-up that I am aware of.

    They resolved that. See Avengers Annual 10 for details.

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...
    I have been wondering that former for years

    I would also add what was the deal with the implied Superman/Batman/Wonderwoman love triangle ? Was the plan to have Vic revealed as dead, like a real Ghost in the Machine (actually I would ask him to elaborate on his Cyborg JL plans period cause all of that was missed potential).

    Would also like to ask Kyle Higgins what his Nightwing plans were for his Prince of Gotham storyline. Seems he was building Dick to a new status quo but it got cut short. Would’ve loved to see what that was.

    Did they ever resolved why Cannonball can't back from the dead after Sauron impaled him in XForce #8?

    Team Titans leader could have been a lot better especially since Hank Hall & Captain Atom were both the Monarch (depending on timelines) aka the leader of the Team Titans.

    Something I totally forgot about:
    Linda Danvers origin has me wondering who she was after Peter David's run because I remember the Phantom Stranger showed her something then I heard Peter David's Fallen Angel was Linda Danvers
