The Sixth Gun
During the darkest days of the Civil War, wicked cutthroats came into possession of six pistols of otherworldly power. In time the Sixth Gun, the most dangerous of the weapons, vanished. When the gun surfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing the girl. Only Drake Sinclair, a gunfighter with a shadowy past, stands in their way.

    I hate to break up Matthew’s hate for Geoff Johns, but Hal Jordan’s father blowing up in front of Hal’s eyes pre-dates Johns. It’s from Emerald Dawn, if not earlier.

      Not earlier. However, you are correct, Hal’s father crashing his plane originated there.

      I still maintain that it was Johns who turned that tragedy in the Batman origin, but I was wrong about Marty originating after Rebirth. Mea Culpa.
