Birds of Prey #6

“Clean Getaway”

The con­fronta­tion with Choke and the Clean­ers is build­ing to a head. The Birds of Prey track down one of the indi­vid­u­als who is under the thrall of Choke and man­age to release him from Choke’s con­trol, then send him back to his reg­u­lar job to act as a lure to draw out Choke. Lit­tle do the Birds know that the entire office staff is under Choke’s con­trol, all mind­less­ly prepar­ing to attack at the same time recit­ing strange phras­es that just might be con­trol trig­gers to take over the Birds of Prey themselves.

Star Trek and The Legion of Super-Heroes #5

With the iden­ti­ty of the mys­te­ri­ous Emper­or of Earth revealed, the ques­tion is, how was Van­dal Sav­age / Flint trans­formed into the ruth­less con­queror of the galaxy and how did he accom­plish that feat? The answer lies in the mys­te­ri­ous force that he keeps locked away, a force that allows him to manip­u­late real­i­ty and com­pel his sub­jects to obey him utter­ly. An intel­li­gent force that does not appre­ci­ate being locked away, a pow­er­ful and petu­lant force used to going wher­ev­er and when­ev­er it willed, unbound by any restric­tions. A force that does not like los­ing, espe­cial­ly to a Stone-Age sav­age such as Van­dal Savage.

A force that should need no intro­duc­tion to any­one who fol­lowed “Star Trek: The Next Gen­er­a­tion”.
