The battle between the Wonders of the World and the Terrors of Steppenwolf is over. The Terrors won with what seems like little effort. Brutaal with his brute strength and flight took down Green Lantern and the Atom and many of the Sandmen with his death rays. Bedlam caused Red Arrow to go crazy and take out the Flash. Beguiler with her strange energies took down Dr. Fate. The Atom was sent mad by Bedlam as well and took out the rest of the team.
Flash is first to gain consciousness. He look around at the other heroes, Army and non and is left with one thought that doesn’t make sense. Why didn’t they kill us. We were at their mercy but they let us live, why?
The World Army is in for a shock once Steppenwolf’s Hounds, or Terrors, which ever you wish to call them attack the fleet. Holt, or Mr Terrific, even comments from what he knows of this world it’s like Steppenwolf is daring them to attack.
Casablanca: HawkGirl flies other the once great city, now a walled in Gambling Mecca looking for eccentric and never seen Darcy Twain who lives in and own the Double Zero Casino, the tallest and bright in all of Casablanca. She flies into the penthouse to find him and is great by a noise that slams for senses and is then caught in a net.
Roger Sharpe aka Hazard introduces himself to a still stunned HawkGirl and explains that Darcy doesn’t exist and that he runs things. He also introduces her to his business partner, Melody, the one obviously responsible for the sound that slammed her senses.
Back in Gotham Mr Miracle and Big Barda battle Steppenwolf’s Fury. Barda escapes her rope and Mr Miracle instructs Barda to find the new Batman and tell him all they know and that he will deal with the Fury. Barda runs off as instructed reluctantly. After Barda is gone Mr Miracle fights, well sort of fights, the Fury as as they are about to engage they are interrupted by Red Tornado demanding they yield.
Wooohoooo Red Tornado. What does BArda know and why do they need to tell the new Batman. If this Hazard is like the main Earth Hazard he can effect luck, good or bad. Fitting he own a casino. Can’t wait to see his connection to Sam’s death. I’m enjoying HawkGirl’s detective work. The 3 Terrors/Hounds of Steppenwolf seem to be very formidable, almost like they could take down the World Army single handedly. Curious to see how this pans out. And Flash is right, why the hell did they let all the Wonders live? I don’t like it… stinks of Fury type twisting plans.
