|Story/s:||Age of Wonders|
The 5 year anniversary of the Deaths of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman and presumably Supergirl and Robin.
Mt Terrific falls through a portal into this Earth. He quickly realises it’s not his Earth. He comes upon Terry Sloan almost immediately. Terry somehow has been expecting him and knows how to counteract Mr Terrific spheres when he threatens Mr Terrific. Terry Sloan quickly subdues Mr Terrific as he fears he will interfere with his plans if left to roam around the world.
Jay Garrick is at the small crater left by the God Mercury’s crash landing. Mercury is trying to explain to Jay what needs to be readied and the darkness that is coming, a darkness worse the Steppenwolf of Apokolips. Mercury tells Jay many things but the thing that sticks in trust no-one. Mercury on his dying breath passes his power to Jay, the power of the God of Speed.
The World Army arrives and in a panic Jay runs…. and how.
On the other side of the world Alan Scott greats his boyfriend Sam. Sam takes him away to a romantic destination via the Bullet Train. On the train just as Alan proposes the train derails and explodes.
Jay is trying to figure out what to make of his powers, his new gift. He finds his costume changes with a thought and that by speeding up his “hero” outfit materialises. While running away from some one he hears a woman scream. A couple are being attacked by Apokorats. He saves them at high speed. The rush causes him to want to test how fast he can go. So he runs at amazing speeds and when he finally stops he has some trouble and destroys a field. He finds he’s in Poland and being addressed by a woman with wings claiming “You sure took your time getting here”
Sooooo don’t like Terry. If he’s trying to save the world why not enlist Mr Terrific’s help instead of attacking him. He’s up to something horrible obviously. My guess is the winged woman is HawkGirl or HawkWoman. Curious to see how she was expecting the Flash (Jay). Next issue… Green Lantern…. obviously.
