    Adam Strange's book not only turned him into a war criminal but also got hijacked by Mr. Terrific and his wife (Adam's, not Terrific's).

    Starting the issue with him being dead makes me think that there is a plot twist and it doesn't feel earned at this point. Or this is not the beginning.

    I know the issue comes out tomorrow, but I agree. The creative team has always talked about how love Adam when the series first started, I'd be shocked if they really ended the book with where the character currently stands. That being said, I don't know if whatever the 11th hour twist is will actually make enough sense to wrap things up neatly.

    Well, I think King talked about being a fan of Wally West around HiC but of course that was also editorially mandated so who can really say at this point.

    Well only GL writer has said that he doesn't like certain character, every other writer is a fan of every character.

    Ok after reading the issue, I was definitely wrong about Adam's fate lol. Damn, I'm curious to see reactions to this issue.

    You gotta give some credit to King here for not even trying to say something positive about Adam.

    So pretty much King writes Strange to the point of no recovery for future writers

    It's a Black Label book. No one is beholden to treat it as in-continuity. A very key character got killed by Joker in the Black Label Suicide Squad mini, and she's still running around in the main DCU book.

    Its not about him being killed, but about him being war criminal, traitor and attempting to murder his own wife. Adam Strange is a minor character with little presence outside of comics so its possible that this characterization is going to stick despite it technically being out of continuity.

    I recall Sheriff of Babylon, Mister Miracle, and Strange Adventures as being a kind of trilogy planned by King. Is that still a thing?
    Why yes, I do enjoy hearing myself talk. it is very kind of you to notice>

    First time I hear about it to be honest.

    I'd like to think internally at DC people are aware that Tom King characterizations are not the definitive, be-all end-all, depictions of these characters.
