Where has everyone gone?I have noticed that sometimes characters will be planned for something, or in the middle of something, and then *poof* they're gone. There's no explanation, just gone.We won't see them again for a year or more, so... where did they go?
For example, Kid Eternity, okay, now he has been seen in Batgirl and then again in Teen Titans, but he was gone for quite sometime (about a year). And for those of you who don't know he was left, being kidnapped by the Calculator, but the Teen Titans don't even mention his disappearance. Then, about 1 year later, in Batgirl #12 it reveals the Calculator actually killed him... and it took to the most recent issue of Teen Titans (#92) for them to even think about it once again, when a robot of the Calculator shows Kid Eternity's death. He was last seen in Teen Titans in issue #74, 18 issues later the team finally finds out what happens to him, and he's dead.
That's just one example (and that one has been resolved), another example is Jericho, who is still MIA. He was last seen in the Teen Titans Blackest Night tie-in (#77-78), when he tells his dad (Deathstroke the Terminator) he will join his new team. Well Deathstroke's team (The Titans) first appeared in the one shot Titans: Villains For Hire which came out in June of last year, the following month the team was seen monthly in Titans (#24 to current) but Jericho is yet to be seen more then a year later.
So my question is; do the publishers just completely forget about these characters and leave us fans to wonder what happened to them till they do remember about them and decide to throw them into some random comic?
