Once and again: Newsarama talks to longtime comics writer and editor Denny O'Neil about returning to "JLA" after a three-decade absence, and why he left the title in the first place:

"Everyone knows that, except in rare instances, superhero stories end with the good guy winning and that's okay. As director Baz Luhrmann said recently, in the history of storytelling the audience, until recently, always knew how the story would end. Think of opera, folk tales, religious parables, and mythology. What mostly matters is the manner of the telling and I imagine that was what I was worrying about back then. I questioned my ability to come up with interesting plots/conflicts using so many powerful characters."
