In a time where practically every other month sees some obscure older character killed off to give a current story some pizazz, there was a character who somehow managed to stay alive in obscurity from 1992 until this week's Justice League of America, James Robinson's first issue on the title.
So congratulations to this character for managing to outrun the chopping block this long.
Read on to see who it is who finally got pulled out of limbo to be killed to set up a new storyline...
Yup, Blue Jay.
It's hard to believe some other writer hadn't kill him off already, isn't it? Heck, it's surprising Robinson hadn't already killed him off.
