Important edit: Moved “heroes who cannot be killed” into the past tense, because, y’know, if they’re not past tense then that kind of challenges the point Harky’s making.

Phil’s panel 5 description amused me: “Harky quickly turns towards the ritual with a look of horror and rage on his face as he realizes that he fell for a fucking RUSE of all things.”

Also, panel 6: “Syr’Nj crouches, the bough in her hand, her eyes going blank as it bathes her in emerald floodlighting that Hal Jordan would envy.” That’s not much of a clue about how this is about to go, but I think John picked up on it anyway.
