AQUAMAN #32
Plot by EXCITER
Written by GEOFF JOHNS
Art by JIM LEE
“SEAT AT THE TABLE”
The Table of Elements is a secret society… an environmental illuminati, if you will. They come together to address atypical ecological threats before the public knows about them.
The Seat of Earth: occupied by Brion Markov, “Geo-Force,” earth manipulator and new King of Markovia.
The Seat of Air: occupied by Red Tornado, air controller and hyper-advanced android.
The Seat of Fire: occupied by Mick Rory, “Heat Wave,” advanced pyromaniac and founding member of the Rogues.
The Seat of Water: now occupied by the Table’s newest member, Arthur Curry the “Aquaman,” King of Atlantis.
In extreme cases, it is said that the Table can summon a Lord of Order to impose nature’s laws on the unnatural - but this is a power that has never been used. And hopefully today is not the day that it must be…
Mr. Freeze has duped an international coalition into giving him billions of dollars to built a gigantic freeze-cannon in the name of combating polar icecap melting. He’s about to use it near the North Pole, directly above the former Atlantean colony of Hys-Basil. If he succeeds, every Atlantean below the waves will be flash-frozen - and he’s already put Mera and Crablad on ice! Worse still, the man once known as Victor Fries secretly doesn’t plan to stop. He will run his freeze-cannon until all the world’s oceans are ice and freeze the very blood of anyone that tries to stop him!
As Aquaman rushes to confront this frigid threat, his table-mate Heat Wave offers to procure the services of a specialist… it’s Captain Cold versus Mr. Freeze in the hottest (and coldest) battle of the summer!

GORILLA GRODD #1
(THE FLASH #47)
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
Art by FRANK CHO
Barry Allen is gone, his body possessed by the Black Racer. We now live in the…
“WORLD WITHOUT A FLASH” part one: “GORILLA TACTICS”
In the tongue of its denizens, the isolated city-state in Africa’s Congo Basin is Uhuhahh. We call it Gorilla City, and it is finally rebounding after the late Vandal Savage orchestrated its fall. In fact, the intelligent primates are holding their first democratic election!
Former leader Solovar has been declared the candidate of the more conservative Silverback Party, whereas the progressive Gigantopithecus Party has nominated Grodd! The mememtic “In Grodd We Trust” slogan echoes throughout Uhuhahh, but some doubt Grodd’s ability to deal with a crisis… just as a crisis arises!
Uhuhahh’s champion and Solovar’s son, the albino meta-ape Kolovar, has been kidnapped by the mad scientist known as the “Ultra-Humanite.” Worse still, the frail Ultra-Humanite has taken Kolovar’s body as his own, transferring his consciousness into the super-strong and durable frame.
The calculating Grodd sees an opportunity: in one fell swoop he can defend Gorilla’s City’s sovereignty, prove his leadership capabilities, and magnanimously reach across the isle to help Solovar (in the process, perhaps capturing the hearts and minds of some undecided or Silverback voters). He may even be able to repay his debt to the Flash if he can uncover the methodology used to possess a host body - and how to expel the possessor. All Grodd has to do is defeat a madman with both an unparalleled intellect and the body of the world’s strongest and most invulnerable gorilla…

GREEN LANTERN #47
Plot by EXCITER
Written by MARK MILLAR
Art by JOE MADUREIRA
”HUMANITARIAN FIRST”
New leader Hal Jordan has promised a different direction for the Green Lantern Corps: they will not just enforce the law, they will be a force for good and a symbol of hope for those in need. That’s why Hal is personally supervising the Corps’ humanitarian mission to the planet Savoth, which was recently devastated by the New God of Death: the Black Racer (see THE FLASH #45).
With most of the Savothian population killed, Hal and his team prioritize locating and rescuing survivors. Upon discovering the local hero S’kidd-Flash, Hal learns his friend and Justice League ally Barry Allen is the Black Racer’s new and unwilling host! Hal vows to dedicate all of the Corps’ resources to stopping the Black Racer and preventing another genocidal rampage from occurring. If possible, he also swears to rescue Barry. Unfortunately, Hal and S’kidd have more immediate problems…
In the wake of his devastation, the Black Racer seeded Savoth with a plague of insectoids: a viscous, carrion-eating offshoot of the “Bugs” that inhabit New Genesis. Their patriarch, the vile “energy vampire” Mantis, sends his newly hatched swarms of warrior drones to eliminate Savoth’s remaining survivors. He claims the planet as a colony world… the first of many!
It’s up to the Green Lantern Corps to fumigate!
