I suppose the old adage "be careful what you wish for" really is true, because I'd rather have The Question be dead than be Alexander the Great [or Ceasar, or Caligua, depending on whose rumor mill you follow.]
And The Phantom Stranger? One of the most important points about the Phantom Stranger is that we never know his origins. Hence, he remains a stranger. We have a multiple-choice origin story for him in Secret Origins #10--you pick which one you think best fits him. (Or supply your own origin.) So DC now sees fit to say that the Phantom Stranger is Judas Iscariot.
I sure hope that site is wrong, or it's part of some elaborate late April Fool's prank. I never got around to getting a FCBD issue this year, so I don't know for sure.
But this trend of shoehorning characters into roles which they were not created for does no justice to these characters. The Question was a detective on the lunatic fringe, not an immortal first user of magic. The Phantom Stranger was mysterious force of indefinable origins who had a penchant for showing up in random moments and helping out various protaganists. Why twist them into roles which they were not meant to play?
Please, DC, I am begging you: go back to the drawing board. Simplify. Tell good stories. Let characters be who they were created to be. Be true to their origins. Stop it already with this nonsense.
