Earth’s ancient parliament meet as the planet faces destruction by Apokolips. They have all chosen Avatars to wield there power in this time of need. The parliament consist of the Blue: Power of the Oceans, the Red: Power of Animal Savagery, the Black: Power of Decay, The Green: Power of Organic Life & the White: Power of the Atmosphere.
The White chooses a soul whose purity is unmatched. Even as a child he sought to protect those who could not protect themselves. His empathy has grown over the passage of time, always placing the welfare of others above his own. Then he met a heart worthy of his heart. He met Alan Scott. His name is Samuel Zhou. Sam is whisked away as the train crashes and reborn as the Avatar of the White. At first he thinks he’s dreaming then he sees the train crash, and instinctively he goes to Alan. Alan is alive but unconscious not that it matters as he can’t see, hear or feel his touch. Reluctantly he accepts the role of Avatar of the White.
The Black had already chosen its Avatar in Solomon Grundy. See Solomon Grundy special – #15.2
The Green chose Alan Scott as its Avatar. See issue 3 – the Jade Knight
Ancient Atlantis, what the people think is a god is attacking them. they believe the time of the Vortex has arrived. Chanya a priestess of sorts summons Azathoth a giant serpent like creature. Azathoth kills the giant eye ball “God” for them and is quickly worshipped by the atlantians as their new God. Azathoth demands a sacrifice but before he can eat him the Messenger of the Blue arrives and chooses Azathoth as their Avatar where he likes it or not.
Yolanda Montez attacks a guy who attacked her “brother”, Alejandro (he’s actually her cousin, but they so close they consider each other brother and sister). Alejandro has been dreaming of turning into a Simurgh. Once he finds the picture of one bleed from the nose and passes out. The doctors say there is nothing wrong with him. He starts having visions, and realises the cats will tear him apart if Yolanda leaves his bed side. The cats then transforms into the messenger of the Red. It becomes obvious the Red has made Alejandro sick. Yolanda instinctively attacks and is subdued. The Red is killing Alejandro so Yolanda offers herself as his replacement. The Messenger of the Red accepts. She is transformed into the red creature from issue 11 and taken to the Tower of Babel.
Now to see if the combined power of the Avatars can defeat Apokolips.
Ooooohhhh the avatars working together, this will be weird and awesome at same time. I always love a good team up. And interesting origin stories. I wonder if Sam will remember Alan or not as Alan still remembers him. Two Avatars sharing on heart.
