Phobos is coming.
We meet Mould, rumour has it he’s J’onns head/mind. And he’s waiting for Aquaman and Pearl.
Mr Biscuits, Darryl (agent Wessel), Alicia and Leo are at the airport. Telepathically they fool the staff into letting them onto a plane, a plane headed for Ghana. mr Biscuits rejoins his torso to his legs and grows a new arm (that he lost in battle with Man-Eater) They leave Alicia behind as the mission is too dangerous Mr. Biscuits says.
Meanwhile in Ghana Pearl wakes up and ‘thanks’ Aquaman for saving her. Mould thanks Aquaman also (but without the kiss). Aquaman recognises J’onn in both Mould and Pearl. Aquaman offers his help, but Mould says it’s OK. Mould leaves with Pearl and tries to explain to her she is part of J’onn.
Back at the airport Darryl, Mr Biscuits and Leo leave, leaving Alicia behind. Once they leave Alicia is attacked by white martians. On the plane Leo weeps and declares “It’s… about to… happen finally” We cross to Bosumtwi, Ghana, to a giant crater, where Mould explains that there can be only one planet with life in the solar system at a time and that a long time ago Mars died so that Earth could live. Then Phobos spews red energy into the crater. There is something in the energy, some thing not human, something alien.
Mould rants about mars reliving, at the cost of earth, that its time to reverse Mars dying so Earth could live. He appears in joy at this.
At this point Mould seems to be a traitor to J’onn (even though he’s part of J’onn). But what does he want with Pearl then? They don’t show it but it looks like Alicia will be killed by the Man-Eater or captured… probably captured if I had to guess, to use against J’onn later on. Mr Biscuits is still unsure if he’s good or evil but has a sense that the white martians must be stopped. I’m enjoying the ride that is this story 🙂
