    That was Jordan, how he survived.

    Absolute character assassination and betrayal.
    It was even more driven home in the next issue where he teamed up with Green Arrow. That one ended with him putting Coast City behind him, moving on from both Olivia and Carol and focusing on a new future... Next issue. wallowing in a giant crater... Sigh.

    Yup. I could've made a claim against DC. The jolt between #47 and #48 gave me severe whiplash.

    I'll try being nicer if you try being smarter.

    Darkseid however is the creation of Jack Kirby aka the King.
    Interestingly enough, Thanos was a rip-off of Darkseid, while Mongul was a rip-off of Thanos. This according to Starlin himself, although I hear he's backed off this in recent years.

    So...obviously everyone knows Emerald Twilight was redone at the last minute to the story we ultimately got. Obviously Hal was never supposed to go insane and wipe out the GL Corps in an attempt to resurrect Coast City.

    However, Ron Marz did attempt to explain Hal's sudden and drastic turn from issue #47 to #48 in that Hal was clearly in denial about the destruction of Coast City.

    Weak explanation perhaps, but take it for what you will.
