DC is really missing a great opportunity by not using the Milestone characters more prominently. They should be a part of the Blackest Night:
(Blood Syndicate )Black Lantern Tech 9 would be verrrrry interesting as he would be the only BL with an unlimited arsenal of weapons. I can see him hunting and attacking his major enemy Holocaust as well as his rival Wise Son. He would also have a major confrontation with Masquerade who attempted to take his persona and identity. Finally, it would be great to see his reunion with his close friends Fade, Flashback and Dogg.
Black Lantern Edwin Alva would confront his protoge, rival and enemy Hardware.
Black Lantern Buck Wild would confront both Icon and Rocket
Xombi would be confronted by his friend and lab assistant that was accidently 'consumed' by Xombi's nanotech in the early Xombi issues.
Shadow Cabinet and vigilantes Deathwish, Kobalt/Clover can be confronted by metahumans and criminals they have killed in the past.
Like I said, Xombi, as the man who cannot die, should be a major character in Blackest Night, but as good as those ideas all are, I simply don't think Geoff Johns has an interest in using the Milestone characters (other than maybe Static).

unfortunately, I think you are right. I'm just saying there is so much potential with the Milestone/DCU shared universe and DC is missing the boat. I agree Xombi is a natural fit for Blackest Night.
Who? Geoff Johns? He isn't exactly a fan of 90's comics, but he's said he really liked Static and tried to get him on his One Year Later roster when he was writing Teen Titans.
