Two men from the FBI told Chicago's then-mayor Richard J. Daley (a real person) to get that and the other cases of supervillainy in his city dealt with before their Director Hoover got the National Guard involved.

So Daley met with Geoffrey Warner, the head of the city's on-strike superhero union C.O.W.L., to tell him that his organization'd get the advantageous contract with the city they were asking for.

Warner, who was working with the mobster Camden Stone and his superpowered thugs to get things to this point, asked for more.

Daley said that that wasn't possible.

" Then you have a real problem. "

" You can't- "

" Of course I can. I have the power here, Richard. Not you. And every hour you stall puts Alderman Hayes at further risk.

" Tick tock, Mr. Mayor. The alderman's life.. "

..he said, as he walked away.. )

His powers're to control, amplify, and redirect the noise around him.

He calls himself Doppler, because he thinks that effect's " close enough " to what he does.

He's been a key part of C.O.W.L.'s last few issues; his introduction opened last December's #7 nicely.

There, he'd walked into a convenience store, picked up some newspapers, and turned to walk out.

He was stopped by the man behind the counter, who told him that he needed to pay for those.

He said he wouldn't, and told the man's wife to mind her business when she tried to interject.

The man, provoked, pulled out a gun to hold him there.

" You're going to call the police? "

" Yes, I am. "

" Okay then. "

..he said, like a man taking his cue. )

There's a bit in the third issue of Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel's C.O.W.L. that's good for both that and the character progression of the superpowered person in question.

That person, Kathryn " Radia " Mitchell of the titular Chicago Organized Worker's League's Tactical Division, was at the beginning of her arc when she first appeared in the issue.

Several pages later, she was at a photoshoot.

A photoshoot framing her in the way everyone and everything else did. )

I promised to post this emotional scene from the end of the Batman Beyond 2.0 storyline with the Justice Lords back in issue 24. Justice Lord Superman has been defeated and Terry is ready to go back to his timeline, but the Terry Mcginnis of the Justice Lord timeline (who for SOME weird reason is a blond) has one last thing to tell him.

Four pages after the cut

Scowly McBatface is from an actual quote from the issue, by the way.


Food for Thought: This might be an odd time to ask this, but where was Alfred Pennyworth during the night of the Wayne murders? Not accusatory, just curious.

As may, or may not, be known, the planned issue of Nightwing #30 by Kyle Higgins and with guest art by Meghan Hetrick was set aside to make way for the King and Seeley Nightwing #30 that came out last week, and despite having Bruce and Dick half naked for much of the time... did not exactly set the fanbase aglow with positivity.

Meghan has now posted all the approved, though unlettered, art pages, and has put them up for sale, so we can see what the original issue would have looked like

And it would have looked bloody spectacular! )

From Newsarama, in the issue that would have been neater if it had come out BEFORE Forever Evil (And perhaps for obvious reasons, Nightwing didn't get a "Villains cover" issue (which given all the others had tied up heroes on those covers has to be some sort of cosmic irony))

Three pages under the cut, by Kyle Higgins and, I think, new regular artist Will Conrad
