Going against the grain
I'm going to have to say that I'm actually enjoying this, so far at least. While I too was wary of the whole legacy thing, so far Tomasi is pulling it off really damn well. Now, if Soranik can avoid the Johns 'Legacy is EVERYTHING' paradigm, then we can have a really interesting story. Imagine Blackest Night with a subplot that...gasp...actually has Soranik at the heart of it. One of the threads that weaves into and shapes the conclusion.
It's asking for a lot, but though Johns is subpar in many areas, with the Greens he tends to get it right. Even if there is far too much Hal!wankery.
