AQUAMAN #29
Plot by EXCITER
Written by GEOFF JOHNS
Art by JIM LEE
“A TALE OF EARTH AND WATER”
Thanks in part to Aquaman, the “Humanity First” agenda of Vandal Savage has been defeated… but the damage Savage did lingers on. One of the nations most severely impacted was Markovia: it lost a king, a queen, and was thoroughly manipulated, from within and without, into adopting a self-destructive foreign policy. But now it’s payback time!
Markovia’s new king, Brion Markov, a.k.a. “Geo-Force,” is the first U.N.-recognized metahuman head-of-state on the surface world. He’s already arrested all of Savage’s knowing collaborators within Markovia’s borders - and now he’s looking outward. As Iris West’s investigative journalism revealed, the nefarious Queen Bee of Bialya aided Savage in his conspiracy to commit regicide (see HUMANITY FIRST: CENTRAL CITY CITIZEN #3; THE FLASH #29). Geo-Force is prepared to formally declare war against Bialya unless Queen Bee is turned over to face trial. To that end, he meets with King Arthur Curry of Atlantis - another kingdom victimized by Savage. Geo-Force proposes an alliance of Earth and Water; with Atlantis’ support, they can bring Queen Bee to justice. But is Aquaman willing to dive headfirst into another international conflict?
Meanwhile, Orm’s sentence for collaborating with Vandal Savage has been rendered… Banishment. But where will the “Ocean Master” go after a lifetime of being undersea royalty? Did you guess it would be Bialya as a special guest of Queen Bee? You probably did!

“BUILD BACK GORILLA”
The fallout following “Humanity First” continues! One of Vandal Savage’s first targets was the major non-human center of power on Earth: Gorilla City. Savage orchestrated it’s downfall and occupation. Now it’s time to rebuild! The Flash and his multiple new speedster sidekicks are ready with construction gear in hand… but will the City be reborn in the spirit of its former leader Solovar, or reforged by the merciless vision of Grodd?
Meanwhile, a new young speedster visits Barry. His name is Samuel Song, but his faster name is “Jog.” His father was Willie Walker, a disabled Vietnam War veteran that, in the past, was the earthly avatar of the Black Racer - the New God of Death! Jog and Willie thought they were free of the Black Racer, who had not possessed Willie for years prior to his death (see JLβ #1). But when the Flash stripped Vandal Savage of his immortality (see THE FLASH #42), the Black Racer seized upon the opportunity and did what he’d lusted to accomplish for millennia: finally brought death to Vandal Savage (see HUMANITY FIRST: OUR FIGHTING FORCES #4). At the same time, Willie’s body disappeared from a disturbed grave. Jog fears that the Black Racer has returned to his host body in this dimension, racing off with it into the night to New God knows where doing New God knows what. Jog asks if the Flash can help. Can he?

“STRANGE BEDFELLOWS”
Earth is now part of the United Planets, and John Stewart is Earth’s Representative. As a Marine and a Lantern, John has had some difficult deployments… but being stationed on Weber’s World, the artificial planetoid constructed to house the government and bureaucracy of the U.P., is definitely going to take some getting used to…
With important conferences upcoming, including a discussion on what to do with the salvaged Warworld, John endeavors to strengthen Earth’s position by making a good impression on the current President of the United Planets. Unfortunately for him, that happens to be President Arin Sur of Ungara - sister of Abin Sur, the fallen Green Lantern whose ring was originally transferred to Hal Jordan - and she blames the Corps, and those in it, for taking her brother away!
As if Arin’s enmity wasn’t dangerous enough, many aliens still harbor hostility towards humanity for the actions of Vandal Savage. Intelligence reports suggest that an assassination attempt will be made on Stewart before he can cast his first vote. The good (or bad) news, is that the Yellow Lantern Corps, now a sanctioned U.P. peacekeeping force, has sent a bodyguard - over John’s objection. Will the aggressive Arkillo protect John… or end up killing him himself?

THE QUESTION #44
Writer: MARK RUSSELL

Plotter: CaptCleghorn
“WTF is This?”
Despite the plethora of metabeings around the world, Hub City has remained fairly super power free. Until now, that is. A person in a very loose fitting full body garment wanders about Hub City causing varying degrees of mischief and performing positively superhuman feats. And why does this concern Vic? The figure’s costume is solid green with a plethora of red question marks adorning it. A fan? An enemy marking themselves with Vic’s name, or could it just be a wild coincidence? Buying the book has been proven to be the best way of find these kind of things out.
Betty Bates, Lady@Law and Lorelei Circe, the Siren have gotten a confession out of Vic’s “Me Too” accuser. DCBA has been paying her to maintain the fake charges for some sort of publicity campaign.
Entrepreneur Ted Kord is wooing Tot with a very juicy job offer at Kord Industries. All well and good, but it would mean breaking off his relationship with Vic.
Also watch a preseason game featuring the Hub City Ball Bearings, the Hub’s “lovable” independent Minor League baseball team taking on the Hub City University Baseball team.

“Visitor from Outer Space, book 2: The Bitch is Back”
In your polyester suit,
With matching platform boots,
And the old Red, White and Blue.
Andros has not only consented, but demanded to be subjected to the Amazonian lasso of truth. She has stated that it was her people who had aided in the settlement of Themyscira by the Amazons. Her people were taken to be the Greek Gods of legend.
Diana’s mother Hippolyta takes Andros into the governing chambers along with senior level Amazons and closed door discussion begins. It is rare that any Amazon business is done behind closed doors so Diana and her sisters are concerned, if not outright worried.
In New York City, Steve and a high ranking Soviet agent take the unprecedented step of aligning totally and pleading with the other nations of the world to bind together. Leonid Brezhnev and Richard Nixon follow the two intelligence operatives onto the UN stage and raise their interlocked hands in partnership. The pictures of Nixon and Brezhnev go worldwide appearing on the front page of nearly every newspaper on the planet.
Meanwhile, back on Themyscira, Hippolyta and Andros appear on the stage before the assembled amazon where Hippolyta sinks to her knees before Andros and kisses her hand. Diana looks aghast.
Plus, on this month’s “Women of 1974” variant cover, the Carnation Revolution (google it).

FROM THE ASHES, PYRA RISES!

She used her telekinesis to keep the G-Men safe as they re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere.

No longer is she the Penelope Pink the G-Men knew!
Tests run on PYRA by Professor Gaunt’s friend Doctor Simon Tsung show she’s healthy and normal — as normal as the Gen-Actice Penelope Pink ever was, anyway.
But her telekinetic powers are now Tau-level, joined by equally strong telepathy!
Her long-time love BASILISK is worried about her, though — as is the gruff loner PANTHA, who nurses a love for her from afar.
An exciting new era of G-Men begins!
