Either editorial missed something huge, or we did.

Normally I'd get all verbose but I think my point speaks for itself. This is from JLA 1:

And this is from JLA 4:

I don't know how much to read into that. Her eyes have been green, brown or blue at various points in her current series.

@v_scarlotte_rose: Like I said, if it's not meaningful (considering how big of a close-up that is, and how a page like this was destined to be scrutinized), editorial really should have caught it.

@akbogert: True. They probably should have caught it in her own series too, but it's not been nearly as obvious. I only know of it being inconsistent because I just looked for it.

@v_scarlotte_rose: I don't have JLA 2 or 3; if I did, I'd check to see if they've any better at consistency within this title.

If this was meant to be their way of tipping off observant readers, it's kind of a shame that inconsistent art has mitigated the efficacy of the tip.

So I guess the new theory is that this was Stargirl in disguise.

And she has the same bright blue eyes as the corpse on that page.

And... I actually kind of hate the fact that that might be right.

@akbogert: I heard a theory that it's a shapeshifted Black Orchid. She's been missing from Justice League Dark, and isn't on the connecting covers picture.

No way would Johns kill a character that he based off his dead sister

Saw someone else point this out when the issue came out.

Eh. But still don't think it's the real Selina.

@jonny_anonymous: Fair enough. Just saying I still don't think those eyes are just a basic art slip-up. And while I didn't read the last issue, I'd gotten the impression that Stargirl was going a bit rogue. But if that's inconsistent with the story then by all means I'm relieved.

At this point it's not so much a matter of Catwoman (since she is all over solicits) but whether someone actually died and/or why such a gratuitous scene. *shrug*

@akbogert: Star Girl was only going rogue in so far as Waller just wan't her to be the "face" of the team and not an active member so she snuck out so she could help the team

#14 Posted by akbogert (3224 posts) - - Show Bio

@jonny_anonymous: Right. I just didn't know if her decision to ignore orders and participate may have involved trying to sneak in as Catwoman. Again, this isn't a book I'm reading or have been keeping close tabs on, so forgive me if that's a really stupid suggestion.

remember when catwoman had a good book and was a respected character by dc writers? me neither.

Heheh. I try.

Of course, considering the actual story here, we'll never know if it was an art mistake or intentional tip-off. Haha.
