Default Who dies next? Place your bets

Well its gonna happen, I'm pretty sure some more villains are gonna die along with some hero's and i think at least 1 or 2 major hero's.

Any guesses?

I think Geoff might kill off Alan Scott which will pave the way for Hal Jordan to join the JSA as a Legacy member and with John in the JLA it just makes sense. Plus hal has been seen in the JSA quite abit lately.

At first I disagreed with your idea that Alan would die, and Hal would replace him in JSA. But you do bring up a good point. I thought the Hal Jordan appearance in JSA was a bit odd (I simply thought it was Geoff inserting one of his characters into the book, more so than Hal being their for his cousin).

Besides that, I think this topic already has a thread. But anyways my picks are:

John Stewart
Suprboy Prime
1 of the Lex's
Alex Luthor
GA Fury (funny thought, GA Fury was created after Infinity Inc's Fury, but chronologically appears first. Would she be Fury I or II)
Steel or Ironmaiden
Cyborg (just came to me, I think it would have to most impact on the Titans, besides Dick),
Connor Hawke
Jay Garrick (I'd really hate this, but I think it more possible than Wally. They always say Flash when they make jokes about Crisis, not Wally. If not Jay see my sill Barry Allen theory)
Snapper Carr (I think this would be a big hit to the League. But I hope he survives, I liked his short lived role in Young Justice and his stint in Hourman)
Bizarro (easily replaced)
Dr Psycho
1 of the Ragdolls (unless they resolve that relationship in a friendly manner. Somehow)
Supergirl or Powergirl (I still think the current Supergirl is a trick; meant to turn bad or be heroically sacrificed. If not, Power Girl would have a big emotional impact. Especially after her recent elevation in status.)

What an easy question! The ones I like will die. This will cause a Crisis in my buying habits, and Marvel, Dark Horse, and Image will benefit until they are all brought back from the dead. Here is some of who will die:

Jay Garrick
Alan Scott
the current Wonder Woman
both Furies
Elongated Man
all the rest of the Superbuddies
Wally West
the hero formerly known as Impulse
Manhunter (Kate)
Power Girl
The Ray
Captain Atom (even though he's in Wildstorm now)
Lady Blackhawk
the Young Justice characters that aren't being used right now
Amanda Waller
possibly 'Mazing Man, if he were remembered
the entire Inferior Five
Captain Carrot and his Zoo Crew will all be destroyed in their upcoming appearance, along with all of Earth C
Animal Man
Captain Comet
Raven, Starfire, and Cyborg
Iron Munro

All meant to streamline my comics budget--I mean the DCU!

After much thought and re-reading both issues, my pick is Earth 2 Lois. Here's why:

1. She's on her deathbed.

2. Her death would send Earth 2 Superman over the edge.

3. She's on her deathbed.

4. From the whisper in IC#1, it's obvious that Earth 2 Luthor is using Earth 2 Lois' condition to manipulate Earth 2 Supes. This can only end badly.

5. She's on her deathbed.

Honorable mention:

Wildcat. If any JSA old-timer is going to take a dirtnap, it's Ted. Various stories have been whittling away his lives ever since "Crisis Times Five" in the Morrison/Porter JLA. Yes, WC has all the courage in the world, but let's face it, having no superpowers is a bad thing right now. The "nine lives" thing doesn't cut it. "The jig is up, Luthors! I will now thwart you with my ability to get shot in the head five times before I die for good!" See?

Shift. This annoying Metamorpho clone was created to die from day one. He had to be. It's the only logical explanation.

Animal Man. I just don't see how the ability to borrow the kicking power from a mule will be terribly helpful in space. Buddy might as well be the guy in the red shirt who's beaming down with Kirk and Spock.

I agree with Harry. Animal Man is wearing a big ol' red shirt...

I think Kal-L, Society Luthor, Alexander Luthor, Old Lois and Superboy Prime will dirtnap too.

Well, in Paul Levitz's interview over at Newsarama (about the arc he's writing on JSA), he mentions using Alan, Jay and Ted and his arc is "One Year Later." I personally think they are safe.

I don't think anyone in the JSA gets killed - which kinda sucks. Don't get me wrong, I like all those characters, but this is a CRISIS! There should be bodies everywhere.

I do think that at least half of Donna's team will get wiped out. Maybe more.

Newsarama journalists ask these questions to Joe Q and Dan Buckley: Why place a $3.99 price tag for only 22 page of materiel?
