To Me, Somehow Funny: Captain Marvel's Expression While Being Stabbed in the Face by a Parademon

"To Me, Somehow Funny: Captain Marvel's Expression While Being Stabbed in the Face by a Parademon" from Genesis #3 (DC, 1997) by John Byrne, Ron Wagner and Joe Rubinstein
Oh Genesis, you were maybe the lamest of the 90s' DC events. Written by John Byrne, but not drawn by John Byrne. Introducing the Godwave as an unneeded rationale for why superheroes exist. Ultimately impacted so few characters, and none which would be considered big guns. For example, you killed off Takion, then resurrected him as the new Highfather, big [later ignored] whoop. Kind of a love letter to Jack Kirby's Fourth World, I suppose, but a  better tribute would have been a story people actually remembered. I certainly don't.
