DC’s March 2011 Solicits Spoil Major Death In Justice League Generation Lost?

DC released their solicits today for March 2011, and while reading through the ones for Justice League: Generation Lost #21 and 22 I couldn’t help but notice the spoiler for what I’d assume is issue #20, and….people will not be pleased.

It’s the calm before the storm in issue #21. Beetle is dead, Max Lord has Checkmate and the hunt for Wonder Woman has begun. But Booster Gold has given up after losing another friend to Max Lord, and the JLI is left without a leader!
In issue #22, Max’s ultimate OMAC Project closes in on completion, and the JLI race to find Wonder Woman before Max finds her first. Along the way, Power Girl, Batman and one more former-JLI member will join the team – but will their combined efforts be enough?
Retailers please note: These issues will ship with two covers each. Please see the Previews Order Form for more information.

Did I read that right? Another dead Blue Beetle? Not Jaime! Now the “DC hates minorities” people are going to storm the gates again! Actually, now this makes lasts months solicits make more sense….I mean, scope the cover to #19.

I’m hoping that his death is temporary, as Max Lord with two dead Blue Beetle’s under his belt is a bit much, and I do like the character of Jaime Reyes. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I trust Judd Winick to do the right thing here.

I mean, come on, we have a potential casualty just from this past issue already.
