That Final Page Of Yesterday’s Justice League Of America #4 (Big Spoilers)

It looks pretty grim, given the rather visible headshot on the previous page. The death that will kick off Forever Evil into September and beyond. But there are things worth considering.

1) It might not be Catwoman. There have been hints in the series that this may be someone new under the cowl.

2) It could be the Martian Manhunter, at this point, impersonating Catwoman and taking the bullet in a very survivable fashion, giving his shapechanging abilities.

3) It could be the first of this Catwoman’s nine lives and she’s going to regenerate into Matt Smith.

But whatever the get out, if there is one, this is a new blatant example of “fridging”, the trope of killing off a character, usually female, to get the attention, or to raise the ire, of another character, usually male. And dubbed from the article by Gail Simone, Women in Refrigerators, after the death of Green Lantern Kyle Rayner’s girlfriend, Alexandra Dewitt, the remains of her body stuffed in a fridge.

In this case, her death is designed to get the attention of Batman…
