Remember this guy?



Axel's gone off to investigate that sentient computer virus thing in Kansas, from last issue. His investigation led him to an army camp and the Shield.





Cue the obvious Captain Planet jokes.

Anyway, something they keep referring to as the mass (or the Mass, maybe, with a capital M?) is heading towards Earth. It's tied to the "killer app" virus Axel's looking into.



He brings up the subject of Earth's superheroes, and then the comic segues to a different scene.

I really don't like this artist's work, though I can't quite place my finger on why. For some reason, it feels like you're watching a movie where everyone's over-acting. Does anyone else see it?

Wasn't it first mentioned in CoIE, then gets a mention in the History, and then, as you say, was completely ignored forever after.

At the end of CoIE " a boy is found alone in Command D,named Tommy Tomorrow".There is more mentioned in the history of DC universe,then of course that awful "Twilight" series that had all of DC's possible futures cross paths...

Isn't "das't" a Marvel Cosmic thing, or is it some other SFF reference that they're both referring to?

Keith Giffen is writing this and he was fond of using it in Annihilation.

I really hope DC lets Giffen play with more of their space heroes since that Planeteers scene wasn't half bad and look at how Cosmic!Marvel is after Annihilation.

Das't? Wrong universe. It's all Grife and Sprock in the DCU.

Is it me, or with the assorted Corps, various members of the Legion hanging around, and particularly L.E.G.I.O.N. does this maybe seem like a space-faring peacekeeping agency too many?

DC seriously need someone to overhaul and organize Cosmic!DC.

yeah, a group called the Planeteers, and we're apparently supposed to take them more serious than the GLC, from their comments. Way to make your first big story arc impossible to take seriously.

I'm both amused and disappointed. Would've been funny to see them try and explain the shorts away.

I do love Tommy Tomorrow, ever since I read the crossover he had with Supergirl.
