Goeff Johns has finally made his mark on the internet... for what you may ask... for the one thing he is famous for above none others...

his self styled Retcons, or as they have become more popularly known now, GEOFFCON's

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=geoffcon

here's the full article...


Geoffcon



A type of retcon (see retroactive continuity) originated by comic book writer Geoff Johns; generally one that renders entire volumes, years or even decades worth of prior comic book stories invalid. These geoffcons can be done without rhyme or reason, seemingly on a writer's whim or stemming from their personal preferences.

A geoffcon differs from your garden variety retcon in that there is little thought put behind your average geoffcon.
"Looks like fifteen years of Emerald Avenger comics just got geoffconned out."


And i've got to say, it couldn't be more true.... lol
