ACTION COMICS #2
PLOT by GUANLISHABI
WRITTEN by MATT FRACTION
ART by LEONARDO ROMERO
"The Man of Steel"
Lois Lane is getting too close to the fire. And this time, not even her father General Lane can save her this time.
An agent is assigned to silence Lois Lane. Because she just discovered the development of a new Super-weapon by Lex Luthor. Lex has been given permission to create a deterrent for Superman if the alien were ever to gone rogue. On the other hand, this Super-weapon may very likely also give an edge to the US in a superhuman warfare.
This is the K-bomb, a Kryptonite nuke.
Instead of using Uranium for fission, K-bomb uses the unstable radioactive element of Kryptonite for nuclear fission, and the energy output is off the scale. Superman can tank a nuclear bomb to the face, but this badboy will hurt.
Lois Lane wants to get this information published at the Daily Planet, but the US government doesn't want Russia or China to know of this yet. The agent gets close to Lois Lane, but is blocked by Clark Kent, who sees the gun with his super vision.
However, Clark suddenly loses his powers and collapse to the ground, there appears to be someone with Kryptonite nearby.
The agent gets a second chance to take out Lois Lane.
But just at this moment, Metallo, the man with Kryptonite Heart, steps in and saves the day?

THE LONG,DARK ROAD: PART II
After two weeks of a long treacherous journey, Connor, Avila, Tasha as Ghul and The Magus have reach the top of the mountain, the home of The Guild! Connor remembers the last time he was here, facing Billy Badass and eventually Richard Dragon, leader of The Guild. If it weren't for the intervention of Lady Shiva and the Left Hand Clan(See: DHoCH #29), they would not have made it out alive! However, looking around they see no signs of a battle, there are no bodies, no death and destruction. It's as though everything has been erased, like it never happened.
Suddenly, they hear the sound of soft music playing in the distance, the keys of a piano echoing in the night. They enter a chamber where they see a cloaked figure sitting in a dimly lit room with their back to them. As they approach, the figure turns and asks, who's there? They're all surprised to see that it's Richard Dragon looking disheveled and broken. He laughs as he tells them that he knows why they are here. They've come to kill the head of The Guild, to slay the dragon no pun intended. But killing him would not serve their purpose because he is no longer the head of organization that he created. The Guild has new leaders, far more dangerous than he is. Billy Badass and Anita Ass-Kicker now run The Assassins Guild!

HUMANITY FIRST EPILOGUE
“WHERE TO RUN NOW?”
After years of conflict, the Flash has finally overcome his arch-enemy Vandal Savage. The immortal conspirator is no more… but his influence remains!
Barry has vouched for his protégés in the now-defunct W.O.A.H. Speedster Division (he trained them back when he was undercover in THE FLASH #32-36). These youths weren’t complicit in Vandal’s schemes like the Reverse Flash was - they were just innocent new metahumans that were manipulated by Savage like so many others. But in addition to the alien S’kidd-Flash, can Barry handle five additional speedster side-kicks: Fast Foodie, Running Shoes, Ziplock, Jack-Be-Quick, and Breakneck? And what happens when one of them… is a traitor?
Meanwhile, after exposing Savage’s massive, worldwide, millennia-old conspiracy, Iris West has gained prominence as the planet’s most bold and brave investigative reporter! Will her newfound fame hurt her relationship with Barry?
And what about Gorilla Grodd and the Rogues like Captain Cold and Heatwave who helped Iris stay alive long enough to publish her exposé? Are these former villains forgiven for their past misdeeds? And what about the woman who betrayed her own father? What about Scandal Savage?

HUMANITY FIRST EPILOGUE
“UNITED”
After the events of Humanity First, Earth has proven itself to be a powerful, and dangerous, player on the intergalactic stage. Under the iron first of Vandal Savage, humans came close to subjugating the universe. Yet it was ultimately a coalition of species, led by heroes from Earth, that united to turn back the threat. It was working together that saved the day. The next step, therefore, is clear…
Earth is joining the UNITED PLANETS.
The influence of Vandal Savage and his illuminati, the Light, has been exposed - resulting in many arrests. The United Nations, embarrassed at being infiltrated and manipulated, seeks to rehabilitate Earth’s image in the eyes of the Galaxy. The vote is nearly unanimous. Earth is now part of the U.P.: a relatively new confederated organization of numerous intergalactic sovereignties, including Xudar, Bolovax Vik, Graxos IV, H'lven, and Noc'sag.
Earth’s representative to the U.P. also received a unanimous vote… Ambassador John Stewart now speaks for humanity! Is he up to the task?
And Earth isn’t alone! Mars has officially joined, with J’onn J’onzz as the red planet’s official representative. Could a major power like Thanagar be next to join?
The new leader of the Green Lantern Corps - Hal Jordan - has arranged for the GLC to become an official law enforcement branch of the U.P., working in conjunction with LEOs from member worlds. Unfortunately, thanks to Sinestro’s vital assistance during Humanity First, the Yellow Lantern Corps is also made an official peacekeeping branch of the U.P.! Can these two entities work together, especially when the GLC is in recovery mode and the YLC is more powerful than ever?

Written by RAM V
Art by JAMAL CAMPBELL
'ARISE'
•No war is bloodless, and the dead are often the little people, the unknowns. There are funerals for fallen friends across Earth, and even heroes grieve.
•Dr. JOHN HENRY IRONS II, the armoured hero STEEL, mourns his old friend and mentor WILLIE WALKER in Metropolis. Amazon warrior NUBIA buries her lover ANTIANEIRAI in the Warriors' Rest of Themyscira. Mystic EXTRAÑO bids farewell to husband HUGH DAWKINS in Tasmania. In Japan, mercenary MIDNIGHTER plots to storm the afterlife and free partner APOLLO from whichever heaven he's in. And ETRIGAN the DEMON dances on the grave of former host JASON BLOOD.
•It calls itself S'AM SA'RA, an alabaster alien whose glowing touch resurrects the dead, and it represents a previously unknown race desirous of bringing back the best of humanity. Its services are limited and therefore select, and Steel, Nubia, Extraño, Midnighter, and Etrigan are given the chance to bring their loved (or hated) ones back.
•Funny thing, though, Willie Walker's grave is dug up... from the inside.
•And a green streak cuts through the atmosphere, barely decelerating enough to avoid hitting Earth at superluminal speed. SOJOURNER MULLEIN is the Green Lantern of a sector so far away that she didn't hear about VANDAL SAVAGE's interstellar takeover attempt until it was over. She may have missed Earth coming for the galaxy but, as she crawls from her impact crater on the outskirts of São Paulo, she prays she isn't too late to stop what's coming for Earth!

THE QUESTION #43
Writer: MARK RUSSELL
Artist: BILL SIENKIEWICZ
Plotter: CaptCleghorn
“Who is the Blue Beetle?”
Vic is settling back into his national DCBA show in Hub City and his forays wearing the pseudoderm mask. While on his national tour, Merry (Girl of a Googleplex of Gimmicks) and genius college student Alice Tesla had done fairly well in keeping Hub City safe. The coming of the vigilante known as Pagan has had its good and bad points. But now, a colorful, far more traditional “superhero” known as the Blue Beetle. The Beetle has his gaudy Flying Beetle and soars the skies of Hub City not only stopping criminals, but inspires Hub City folk to be better citizens. Who woulda thunk it?
The old Aquarius complex outside the city has been purchased for basically fulfillment of back tax bills. The complex had been ransacked and cleared out of anything possibly being worth anything. Kord Industries has purchased the complex to use as a factory and warehouse facility. Unlike Aquarius, Kord is advertising to hire “real people”, that is, mainstream folk without PhDs and/or incredible scientific knowledge.
Kord Industries is also in negotiations with Sportsmaster and G.O.A.T. Lawrence “Crusher” Crock about finalizing plans for a minor league baseball club in the Hub.
Also, Lorelei Circe is getting involved in Vic’s “Me Too” case. Payments to her worker who had made the claims against Vic are argued as being either hush money or a payment to make false claims. Can Betty Bates, Lady@Law and the Siren get to the bottom of this, especially as Vic has a restraining order against him regarding the claimer.

SENSATION COMICS #32 *Starring Wonder Woman ‘74*
Written and Drawn by Amanda Conner
Assisted by CaptCleghorn
“Visitor from Outer Space, book 1: Killer Queen”
In your polyester suit,
With matching platform boots,
And the old Red, White and Blue.
“My name is Andros. I represent a confederation of planets who have noticed your planet’s progression off its homeworld. Where an occasional foray is insignificant, your Skylab shows Earth plans to maintain a permanent presence in extraplanetary space. I am here to observe and make recommendations regarding homo sapiens travelling beyond planetary boundaries.”
And this it began. The woman known only as Andros also states that species eradication is a possible recommendation. The situation quickly becomes a United Nations issue. Diana (and Steve Trevor)’s US Government statuses become important as Steve makes attempts to get the USA and USSR on the same page with the situation. Wonder Woman tries to point out humanity’s efforts through science and art, but Andros is reticent to accept Earth’s praises.
Diana and Andros ride in the invisible jet back to Paradise island where Andros makes an unusual and surprising demand. Use the fabled lasso of truth on her. And we’re not going to give you the secrets here, but make you buy the book. But Andros isn’t who she says she is and even more puzzling is why she asked for the lasso if she was being duplicitous.
Plus, don’t miss the extraordinary “Women of 1974” variant covers.
