DC Will Have Another Chance to Kill Off Ted Kord Soon (SPOILERS)

Geoff Johns revealed that Kord will finally appear in the Nu52... BUT WILL HE SURVIVE?!?!?!

Source: Newsarama

In an interview on Newsarama mainly discussing the addition of villains Lex Luthor and Captain Cold to the Justice League, DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns took the opportunity to announce that Ted Kord, the OGDCU Blue Beetle, will be making his first Nu52 appearance in Forever Evil #7, promising that Kord will be playing a role in the Justice League after the event. As you probably remember as you cry yourself to sleep every night, Kord was killed in the OldDCU by Max Lord, who shot him through the head, before having his own neck snapped by Wonder Woman in a push to show everyone how super mature and R-Rated DC's heroes are.

Nrama: OK, then final question. I know you like to do those "teaser images" at the end of issues — hints about what's coming up in your books. Can you give me one sentence like that now? A peek into something we'll see after Forever Evil in Justice League?

Johns: Ted Kord returns to the DCU in Forever Evil #7, and plays a role in Justice League post-Forever Evil.


While The Outhouse is unable to score our own interview with Johns for obvious reasons, we were able to use the latest NSA spying technology to eavesdrop on DC's creative meeting to decide what to do with Ted, which took place at the Apache Biker Bar in San Antonio, Texas and was attended by Co-Publishers Dan Didio and Jim Lee, Johns, Pudding-Brained Editor in Chief Bob Harras, and even Kord himself, along with the rest of DC's editorial staff. Here's the transcript of the meeting:

Jim Lee:  I say we kill him!

Editorial Staff: Yeah!

Dan Didio: I say we hang him, *then* we kill him!

Staff: Yeah!

Geoff Johns: I say we stomp him!

Staff: Yeah!

Johns: Then we tattoo him!

Staff: Yeah!

Johns: Then we hang him...!

Staff: YEAH!!

Johns: And then we kill him!

Staff: YEAH!!!

Ted Kord (disguising his voice): I say we let him go.

Staff: NO!!!

Bob Harras: *whistles* I say ya let me have him first!

At that point, the group erupted into raucous laughter. Things aren't looking too good for ol' Ted. You'll have to check out Forever Evil #7 (or not since DC pretty much spoiled all of it in press releases over the last two days) and Justice League #30 to find out more!
