Act One, “Dominion of Damocles”, Part One
The Source Wall was repaired, existence saved… but at an astronomical price!
Flush with the power of the Source Wall, Penelope Pink has lost her grip on her humanity — now and forever, she is DARK PYRA.
When the G-MEN returned to Earth, she defected, joining the mysterious FOUR SWORDS OF DAMOCLES!
The Sword of Justice, Ohmen — the resurrected Unity!
The Sword of Fortune, Looker — telepathic vampire!
The Sword of Fear, Mister Whisper — Basilisk’s tormentor!
And now, the Sword of Virtue, Pyra!
The Four Swords serve, who else, DAMOCLES!
An immortal Gen-Active from the time when the living island Kuano was known as Nouka!
It was he who awakened Kuano from its slumber! He who has menaced the G-Men from the beginning!
In fact, he had masqueraded as Professor Hiram Gaunt’s friend, Simon Tsung!
All in service of his vision of a world dominated by the Gen-Active of the world, where the powerful dominate the meek!
Now, thanks to Dark Pyra, he has stolen fire from the heavens — and from the island of Akonu, seeks to wipe away the world of humanity in an inferno!
The OMEGA TITANS are under Damocles’ control now!
Now begins the Dominion of Damocles!

AQUAMAN #33 *Fire From Heaven tie-in*
Written by GEOFF JOHNS
Art by JIM LEE
The Omega Titans are already an unfathomable threat. Yet the fish remember, and the fish tell Aquaman that another ancient danger has returned - a danger not just to the oceans, but to the entire world…. He senses it too.
Arthur has no choice. He assembles his ecological illuminati, the Table of Elements, with a clear goal. Long ago, the first Table of Elements used their powers over nature to suspend a dying Lord of Order in stasis - to be summoned again only when the need was most dire. If not now, then when?
Water! Earth! Fire! Air! By our elemental provinces combined, come forth from your long slumber… Arion!
Ages ago…
The greatest hero and sorcerer of Atlantis, Arion, had just led the successful campaign to imprison the mad gods Triton and Enyo. But a steep price was paid. Of the stalwart and heroic “Others,” a quasi-Justice League of its day, only three members survived: Arion himself; the Amazonian kanga-rider Exposta; and the cursed human Claw the Unconquered. Yet more threats awaited the old world - and Arion knew a larger team was needed to confront them.
So there came a day when Arion ventured forth to a place that most considered cursed and unsurvivable: the Boiling Sea. Rumors told that the source of the omnipresent heat - of the ever-burning fire in the water - was an Atlantean woman acting as host to a cosmic force. This was a woman Arion needed to know…

“The Dawn of Damocles!”
Written by Kieron Gillen
Plot by H-E-D
Art by Leinil Francis Yu
Four thousand years ago, at the apex of the Xia Dynasty in what is now known as China, a remarkable child was born. The Firstborn of the Second Generation of Gen-Active.
Qi Zhân Dēng, abandoned at birth, eventually became the man who drowned the tyrant king Tai Kang.
Immortal and immensely powerful, he could have been king. But he left the land of his birth to seek out those like him.
In his travels and conquests, tales spread, such as the story that inspired the story of the Sword of Damocles.
He even plundered the remains of an Omega Titan buried under the sand of Egypt, infusing himself with its cyber-organic essence and gaining access to the four Stones with which he would crest his Four Swords!
After centuries, Damocles founded a community of Gen-Actives on the living island of Nouka. He had a people, a family, warriors all. But it was not to last.
A tragedy split Nouka in two — Kuano and Akonu, and the later was lost to the clutches of the Eret-Ha. His family stayed on Akonu, exiled to hold back the demon tide. A heartbroken Damocles put Kuano to rest, and set out into the world once more.
Damocles headed the lesson of this tragedy well — the world was not strong enough. It took his entire nation of tau-level metahumans to repel the demons, and it was barely enough.
He would forge a stronger world, to honor his family — by any means necessary!

THE FLASH #48 *Fire From Heaven tie-in
Barry Allen is gone, his body possessed by the Black Racer. We now live in the…
They’re called Breakneck and Running Shoes… or, rather, they were. Those were their “meta names” - the names they chose after Vandal Savage first found them and activated their dormant metagenes, changing their lives forever and turning them both into speedsters. They had those names when they worked for the now defunct World Organization for Advancement of Humanity, until the Flash showed them that W.O.A.H. was corrupt. They had those names when they became the Flash’s protégées, doing good deeds under an honest, heroic mentor. They had those names when the Black Racer came… killed a planet, defeated their mentor, and stole the Flash’s body as his new avatar. The Black Racer threatened Breakneck and Running Shoes to never use their speed again… or he’d come for them. That’s when they stopped using the names.
Thereafter, they were just Johnny Swangone and Gina Gabrowski again - two normal people who did normal things, as if they never activated their metagenes.
Then came Damocles. The ancient “Gen-Active” believes metahumans are the strongest and most worthy of life, naturally superior to baseline humans and aliens. Under Damocles, they need not fear a “New God.” No, under Damocles they would become even newer gods, replacing the old… violently, if necessary. Under Damocles, they can finally be Breakneck and Running Shoes again. They can fight the Black Racer. All they have to do is accept Damocles' offer to join him and his mission.
Will they?

GREEN LANTERN #48 *Fire From Heaven tie-in*
Written by MARK MILLAR
Based on troubling intelligence that the Thanagarian Empire was conducting experiments on the Source Wall, the Green Lantern Corps’ flagship, the G.L.C.S. Interceptor, is dispatched on a peacekeeping mission. Captain Guy Gardner arrives to find that Earth’s G-Men and the Omega Men were first on the scene and largely resolved the immediate threat before hastily leaving… but have they unleashed something worse?
Oan records said there were four Omega Titans inside the Source Wall. Those records need to be updated. There’s a lot more… and they’re all gone! With even one Omega Titan capable of untold destruction, can Guy track them all from their point of origin so that the Corps can formulate a response? Worse still, some Thanagarian Shadowlord loyalists haven’t vacated the region yet - and they’re not happy! It’s dark wings versus bright rings!
Meanwhile, the United Planets learns that the G-Men may have awoken the ancient entity known as Pyra. President Arin Sur seeks to keep that information confidential… for now. Earth was recently responsible for a massive universal catastrophe (see HUMANITY FIRST), and another so soon could be devastating for the world’s intergalactic standing. Sur consults Earth’s representative, John Stewart - whom, against all odds, she has taken a special interest in. The G-Men are Stewart’s people, so it must be his call. Should there be a preemptive strike or should the U.P. take a more circumspect approach, trusting the earthlings to prove that humanity can mitigate its own dangerousness? Which will John choose?
