    I thought next this page was the page of mourning. I've been holding my mourning in for it.

    I for one would have liked to see bad Johnny come back and in a sense make things better through his wanton destruction. You know, to tear down the "utopia" and kill all the superhumans. Since that was obviously what was coming.

    But more importantly, I was looking forward to the redemption of Miracleman himself, which is clearly what was starting in the Silver Age. Whereas Moore's Miracleman was a story about a man trying to be a superhero but ending up just as a superhuman who has lost his humanity, Gaiman's story was (in my prediction) going to be about that same man meeting a real superhero and a human being.

    If anything, Winter, Miraclewoman and the other superhumans of the world are just as bad as Kid Miracleman, but in a different way. Instead of horrifying physical acts, they have murdered the human spirit and stolen all the wonder from the world. They have influenced Miracleman into building a world devoid of love and morality, but most importantly, devoid of humanity.

    I was looking forward to how meeting Dicky once more would work towards reconciling Miracleman and Michael Moran, restoring Miracleman's humanity and stopping the silent injustice of the posthuman world order. And maybe even Miracleman saying his magic word once more and going to find Liz.
