Batgirl and her fellow Gotham City heroes have saved countless lives. But they can’t save everybody, and in a city that many of the world’s worst calls home, there are always going to be moments where you question whether you’re making any difference at all.
For those who haven’t been reading, this week’s HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #50 is the final issue of the series. But it’s more than a finale for the Rebirth-launched Green Lantern comic, it's also the end of an era.
Vic Stone has been a member of both the Teen Titans and the Justice League, but he’s soon to add another team affiliation to his resume—the Doom Patrol.
Warner Bros.

Fifty years ago, an up-and-coming creator named Marv Wolfman turned in his first script, and though no one knew it at the time, the DC Universe was about to be changed forever.

The Fourth World is a strange, surreal, dangerous place…and that was BEFORE Harleen Quinzel found herself trapped in it. Harley inadvertently left the shores of Jersey for the firepits of Apokolips back in HARLEY QUINN #45, and since then, things have only gotten nuttier for a reluctant hammer-wielding hero who already counts a stuffed beaver and robotic egg-person as two of her besties and who once dated a guy who was half goat.

For most of us, the only frightening things we’re likely to find in the basement are our father’s fluorescent parachute pants and maybe a mouse or squirrel who has met an untimely demise. We’re not likely to find any dragon skeletons, human-bat hybrids, or nightmarishly mutated cadavers.
Then again, none of us live in the Hall of Justice.
