    At this point, those Crisis storylines are shorthand for "culling the cast because we have too many".  Crisis on Infinite Earths started it (although the decree came down from the execs that they could only have one Kryptonian at the end, they gave Kara one HELL of a send-off), and now even MARVEL got in on the fun.  To be fair, Superbitch Primo-Emo only killed three Titans, but fucking HELL, two of them had a good thing going: Pantha and Wildebeest, both longtime members of the New Titans.  The last one, Samurai, they'd done NOTHING with.

    The strange thing is I felt that some of the deaths like superboys blue beetles and Kal L's. Why did they get these deaths right when they messed up the others.

    Kal L's was the final part of it and he had a HUGE role in shaping the narrative of that storyline (also counts as a VERY High-Tier Antagonist, too), same with Alexander Luthor.  It's still a case of knowing where some characters were in the hierarchy.  Most Titans, for example, end up as support at best, and even Pantha and Wildebeest sat there most of the time.  So, well....they end up food for the fodder.  Much like Penny, they don't really have much ability to drive the narrative in their own right (those two with Red Star were more of a unit than anything else), so they might end up dying to further someone else's story.  Distasteful, but mechanically appropriate.  Same sadly with Tula during the Crisis on Infinite Earths, falling to Chemo's poisoned waters.  That led Aqualad on a years-long funk which ended with his rise as Tempest (and even HE got that treatment during Blackest Night, and never got rebooted, instead going with the Kaldur Aqualad from then on, after my own MOTHER held out a hand to bring him back into the comics).

    Edit: I was mistaken, it took YEARS for Garth Aqualad to be revealed post "New-52".  From the info I was just looking up, he's pretty much kept his Tempest powerset (the water manipulation portion of it was made his normal powerset in most modern animated versions of him, notably Teen Titans and Young Justice).

    Second Edit: No, I'm not kidding about the "my mother brought him back into the comics" part.  During "One Year Later", he comes across a sorceress called Leah who helps him out with a ship to travel in.  That was DC's tribute to my mother (Garth was her favorite character).

    I figured out what the relic is at beacon. In volume 1 Glynda asks Ozpin on what he used for the relic that year. The relic is a item that each academy has, Ozpin most likely disguise the relic as a chess piece that would explain why Salem has not found the relic at Beacon. Or the relic is divided into the set of chess pieces seen in volume 1 to make sure that the relic is almost impossible to find at beacon. Or im just reading far far in between the lines of plot.

    She did in Marvel, too.  The last story of the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man Annual #1 is an account of Peter David's last time seeing her, and it's drawn in her style.  Wouldn't have known unless a friend of hers directed me to his blog right after she died.

    That would make sense, since Glynda says the chess pieces are relics. But it doesn't, because they would be placing some of the most dangerous and important artifacts in the world, in the hands of inexperienced students in the middle of a forest.

    Yeeeah, I'm sure if anyone were to start up the relic and cause god knows what to happen it would be Nora.

    I think the relics in volume one are different to the relics.

      That would be cool. And a bit of a shock to everyone. It would give Ren and Johne a purpose instead of taggig along with Ruby.

    Additionally, id think all of RWBY would probably have their own thing anyway.

    Definitely would have the mindset for the spring maiden I would think. I wonder if personality is a factor in if a person is more likely to get what maiden power. Like Winter or Weiss would obviously be more likely to get the winter maiden as they are much more introspective and emotionally controlled.

    I think Winter is more likely to be the Winter Maiden because of her name.

    I still think that would be a bit too easy. Nora is a better candidate.
