Is this the end for John Jones?

Grant Morrison says:

"Libra gives all the villains a very simple choice, he says, 'Follow me and I'll give you your heart's desire.' And that's it. And some of the villains naturally say, 'Prove it.' So the Human Flame is one of the first to fall in with Libra and he says, 'If you can get revenge on my old enemy, who has had me stuck in jail for the last five years, I'll follow you anywhere.'"

A very special FINAL CRISIS one-shot honoring the passing of a great hero who's been a staple in the DC Universe for years. All that remains is one final memory that the League experiences together as they must fulfill his last wishes or die trying

Well let me the first to say that it's a shame that Martian Manhunter may die (if I'm right)

Then again this doesn't surprise me, with a crisis nearly we knew that someone would die....

Never thought it would be John tough, maybe that's why they didn't put him in the league again

But since this is so soon....I'm guessing another important hero is going to die

That sucks. Even though I don't care much for him. Except for the show.

Lets assess:

They've already killed Superman once, I don't think they will do it again

Batman: They have already killed him in the past year or two.

Wonder Woman: Been there done that.

Flash: It is a tradition now, but I doubt that they would go to the trouble of killing Wally just as he got back.

Of all the crap decisions DC has made over recent years (the Superman is dead farce -yeah, sure), bringing back Barry Allen, undoing much of the original Crisis On Infinite Earths,etc. This is the worst. Martian Manhunter has been such an underused character and has so much great potential, I can't believe writers don't know what to do with him. It's only issue 1 of FC and already there are 2 things I really hate about it - what am I gonna be like at the end??

For some reason. I am extremely honored to RP as Martian Manhunter now. Now a lot more than ever. nods I Pray to god the'll bring him back, some how!

I don't think he's dead just yet.

Note how the Human Flame was capturing the event on his cell phone.

I think he released it on the internet or something and everyone jumped the gun and assumed he was was dead.

He could still be alive.

ummmm, it was in the comics, he had a whole issue about him being dead

R.I.P- Martian Manhunter.

( I was hoping that John would team up with Miss Manhunter )
