> When did the Pied Piper become a bad guy again. Maybe I missed something inbetween johns' last issue and the new series but I was pretty sure thta he was still a good guy. Now countdown has him and the Trickster paired together and some sort of head line that has villian in the title. When did this happen?

I could be interpreting this wrong but I got the impression from Johns' run that Piper is kind of unhinged now. He's not necessarily the worst of the rogues but he certainly isn't really on the side of the angels either. After having his parents killed and the whole thing framed on him so that he ended up in Iron Gate (or whatever) left him pretty messed up in the head. I guess that kind of leaves him not knowing which end is up and kind of playing both sides of the fence. Basically, he is doing what is best for Piper.

I see the Trickster in the same place, actually. Yeah, he was returned fully to evil in that arc, but his reason for being good wasn't erased, and he's got the potential to revert on his own free will. Have to admit, I'm excited about that story arc.
