This issue in the overall Bloodlines storyline is probably the oddest in both its extreme violence and sexual themes that run through the issue.

 

This story opens up in a hospital as a certain Parasite walks its way through (leaving a few bodies behind) it until she finds a recently paralyzed young man, Nik Mayak.

 

Panels 1-5: I'm liking where this is goin-
Panel 6-7: AW SHIT.

We then cut to Hal and Arisia flying in the skies. At this time in the GL books Arisia was no longer a Green Lantern and the whole Hal's a pedophile thing gets joked at by Arisia but Hal adamantly states he loves Olivia Reynolds now. (Who?) 

Arisia just replies to that with "Oh suuuuuuure you do, that's why you sent your other ex-girlfriend off to get killed."



Yeah it's Parallax or something like that, I think?

Back at the hospital the Doctor and Nurse see the place has become a path of destruction and run to Nik who they hear is flat lining. But after a minute or two of trying to resuscitate him...

 

Legs in the DCU as we see can heal from any injury! ....Except you Babs, sorry.

After checking in to see if Carol  was at Ferris Aircrafts who direct Hal to a resort Carol's staying in, where she hasn't checked in in the last two days Hal gets worried and goes to hear about the killings in the area, worrying about Carol's life.

So the coroner shows Hal what one of the bodies is like....

 

Carol it seems has gone off to stay with one of her friends Linda, thus her missing from the hotel.



And the Predator comes a calling!                   

Linda escapes, getting to her car and driving away but crashing a bit after from the panic though she survives and Lissik doesn't chase after her.

Meanwhile Nik finally went home to see his family now that he was cleared from the hospital but finds his sister and mother both dead and his Uncle nowhere to be found. I'm also sparing you folks from a downright creepy page showing his sister's body.

 

 

His brothers pop out of the building and they're all in a crazy episode and attack Nik, cutting off his arms.


Meanwhile Hal has also been going to look into the murders and to question one of the husbands.

 



Now to finally find out what the heck is up with all the murders and their happy husbands...



 

So, yeah. Lissik's been having sex with the husbands, controlling their "minds" and killing their wives for fluid. The men have also been transformed into Lissik's super strong lackeys. Kinda odd though that Lissik can apparently transform a man on purpose, hard to tell if the men are counted as New Bloods or if they're some odd variant the Parasites can control if they so chose.

Now Hal and Nik finally meet, both concerned over the murders with Nik particularly since his family was killed..

 

Hal and Nik go off to find the cause of everything and manage to find Carol (and her friends who found her crashed from earlier.)

 

Yeah just to point out Nik of course has his regenerative powers but also some enhanced strength plus his own talent of being a good shot with throwing weapons like knives.





Oh Hal, you're so....you.



Just when Hal and Nik are preparing to round up Nik gets a glimpse of one of the transformed men who is his missing Uncle Kina. But before the two can stop them the men vanish.



 


His connections with LA are what I believe led to him among the other New Bloods forming the later Blood Pack mini (never did read it though)

I'll admit I still have no clue why he chose Nightblade despite in an unposted page he says it's a very fitting name for himself.

Kinda surprised he wasn't used much after the Bloodlines event, alongside Ressurection Man he's one of the few DC characters you could butcher on panel for sight gags without having to kill them off (Nik was nearly unkillable).

Yeah, bones don't cut that way. *lol* Tho I assume his biology must have changed a LOT to explain the healing anyway.
