If you put aside all of the characters that have completely disappeared like Wally West and the various Batgirls, I think the character most fucked with by the DC Reboot is Martian Manhunter. He’s kicked off the JLA and sent to Stormwatch, the JLA hate his guts, and he’s basically acting like a massive douche. This issue sees him going around and erasing his existence from the minds of the rest of the team for an unexplained reason. Maybe it is just to be a dick. I wonder if is this it for J’Onn in this book, or if he’s erasing himself in order to stop Harry Tanner. Speaking of Harry, his plans just get weirder and weirder, he’s turned Fox into some kind of dimensional portal, and is sending bizarre Nefertiti heads all across Earth for some reason. Who knows what the hell he’s up too. It sounds like I’m being down on this issue, but I actually liked a lot of it, the art from Will Conrad was very good, I loved loved loved the way Milligan rationalised Midnighter’s stupid chin-spike and I found the scene where Martian Manhunter met the Shadow Council very interesting. He was in Avalon, which is of course an important setting in Demon Knights at the moment, it’s looking more and more likely that Cornell’s book is showing us the formation of Stormwatch way back in the Middle Ages, which is very cool. It’s just the treatment of J’Onn that’s annoying me, he’s being a total dick!

I think that J'onn has been testing both the JL and Stormwatch for some upcoming menace/battle/whatever. A few issues ago in JL, he made the comment while observing on them that they still weren't ready or something to that effect. Not sure why he would have to erase himself from Stormwatch but since they view other heroes as threats that may explain it.
