ok when was the last time you read a comic where the crime being commited by the villain wasnt superhero assualt??? when was the last bank robbery you saw in a comic? last jewelry store heist? bascially 99.9% of all the plots in comics is villain goes after hero. to what end ??? to give them a good smack? honestly when was thr last crime you saw in comic that didnt involve getting to hero in some way?

even getting past revenge by heroes arch enemies new villains try and kill them too. how many times have you read this line" if i take you out i cement my rep..." or something to that affect by a new villain? and of course villains dont win that parts of the genre the hero is a THE hero



and heroes die all the time (they just come back to life later) the rest of them dont go on the warpath every time heck when blue beetle died they hardly noticed when hawkman was seemingly killed right before the ttitle switched to hawkgirl the JSA didnt decend on ST roch en mass and turn the city upside down . the bataquad didnt move heaven and earth to take down black mask after spoiler was killed. and you would think her boyfriend robin would have done something.

the huge hero manhunt for the rogues?? where is it? how is part of it?
wondergirl, who swore revenge? robin? 2 of barts closest friends? has jay garrick been running all around tracking them down the killer of the guy he considered like a son to him and his wife? how about liberty belle/jesse quick? has she done anything to bring her former speed force team mates killers to justice? so far wally got inertia thats it. ? any hint of either the jla or jsa putting the rogue manhunt on their to do list? life goes on


what about when iris allen was killed? i dont relly remeber the story too well but i do remeber that the JLA was more concerned with barry stopping and dealing with his loss then forming a posse. i remeber a cool issue where barry took on a few JLAers when they tried to stop him from doing something .

yeah IC saw mobilization to get Dr light but just about every other storyline heroes are way too busy to really give a crap

That's just it: The Rogues were those guys! We DID see them committing robberies and raising heck for money.

> and heroes die all the time (they just come back to life later) the rest of them dont go on the warpath every time heck when blue beetle died they hardly noticed when hawkman was seemingly killed right before the ttitle switched to hawkgirl

Well, Hawkman's friends and family DID know he wasn't dead and was getting revenge himself. \:\)

> the JSA didnt decend on ST roch en mass and turn the city upside down .

Because they were in on it. At least Dr. Fate was. \:\)

> the bataquad didnt move heaven and earth to take down black mask after spoiler was killed. and you would think her boyfriend robin would have done something.

That was just... well, stupid. I refuse to attempt to apply logic to War Games. \:\)

Because someone else got them first. (It's the point of an entire miniseries coming out later this year.) No point in SHOWING a manhunt that's going to fail because the villains involved are already light-years away after being taken into government custody. We've already seen the Suicide Squad trying to take down the villains involved in Countdown, so it's actually exactly as bad for them as I said it was. Worse... I never considered that their own allies would turn them in, and that's exactly what the Penguin did to Trickster and Piper.

Barry had wiped out Professor Zoom by the very next issue, and he was killed AGAIN almost immediately upon revealing he'd survived being disintegrated in a time-bubble before Barry's eyes. (And even though that's true, the Green Lantern Corps made an attempt to take him down before Barry had a chance in that issue!) There wasn't much chance to do a manhunt there.

Usually, the villain's taken care of before there's a need for a manhunt. War Games is the exception, and, well, even DC realizes that that was a mess.
