NB of the Week

Brightest Day #21
As we draw nearer to the end of BD, we get yet another twist in the soap-opera that is the DCUniverse. We get a full-on Martian Manhunter issue as he deals with D'Kay and her mind games of keeping him for herself bringing back Mars to it's rightful state. However, MM is able to snap outta her hold (surprise) and fight it off. He finally does the only thing he can think of that will stop her for good and that's flying both of them into the sun, killing them both. However, powered by the White Light, MM bursts back out, all decked out in his White outfit. The While Light then tells him he life has been restored and that he has to chose between his two lives: Mars or Earth. As MM flies down to Earth, sensing trouble that's going on and finds the Star Forrest that Arrow has been protecting on the verge of being destroyed. As he lands, MM is met by Deadman who is trying to warn him that he should run and that he doesn't have control of what the White Ring is going to do. MM, in being able to read Deadman's mind, knows what the ring is telling his and he accepts it. He now knows "It's all part of the plan" and he gives himself to it, being pulled into the ground. End issue

I still have no idea what the hell is fully going on but Manhunter becoming part of the Earth is showing a much more hippy stance than I would like. First the Hawks are turned into dust. Second, Aquaman is turned into water (which I could see better once I looked back) and now Manhunter has turned into Earth. Can anyone guess what Firestorm is going to become? A bigger picture for why these heroes were chosen to come back is coming and I hope in the next five issues, it blows me away. I really have no idea what they are doing, but if they all return in one, amalgam form as the new protector of life and the new White Lantern, I will punch someone. Or more likely something because I don't want to be hit back.
