Art by FRANK CHO and JOE MADUREIRA
“ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER”
As one alien threat looms over Earth, an equally alien hero steps up to defend his adopted world. J'onn J'onzz has shed his secret identity as a top U.S. Official and leads Earth’s resistance against the overwhelming might of Starro! At first focused on safeguarding the world’s nuclear arsenal, the Martian Manhunter soon realizes Earth has a much more desirable asset... its vast metahuman population!
J’onn had created an orbital satellite base as part of his yet-unannounced plan to organize the planet’s heroes into a powerful defensive force - but if the satellite is taken, its prototype resources and data will enable Starro to find and capture almost all of Earth’s metahumans! The mission is clear: defend the Watchtower at all costs! Yet even with the help of Green Lantern John Stewart and Booster Gold, can J’onn possibly stop his own allies: the Flash, Rocket Red, Ravager, King Faraday, and Lobo?!? And is that... Starro-controlled Maxwell Lord?
Their only hope may be an unexpected ally, someone who has been shepherding the development of metahumanity for 50,000 years and will not see his children fall to any foreign invasive species. Can the resistance trust... Vandal Savage?!?

THE FLASH #13 *Starro Wars Tie-In*
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
Art by FRANK CHO
“FATHER KNOWS BEST”
My name is Henry Allen, and my son is the fastest man alive. I couldn’t be there for him growing up because I was falsely imprisoned, framed for his mother’s murder. Without me... he became the Flash. But now he’s got a gross alien starfish on his face, controlling his mind and making him do evil. Iris West already tried to save him and got a face starfish of her own for her troubles. But don’t worry, slugger. Daddy’s home now, and he’s going to take care of everything... by putting Starro on the Wall!
Flash Fact: In American prison slang, the Wall is a place where peer justice is dispensed through violence.
After learning his secret, Henry suspected Barry might eventually need more help than a humble doctor could offer. So he used his connections from inside to link up with the most powerful crew in town: the Rogues! They provided him a piece of meta-tech, a dark matter-infused sonography machine that allows him to look inside biological organisms... and rewire them! Now he’s got one mission: lure his son into Captain Cold’s Absolute Zero trap to slow him down, scan the Starro spore, and rewire it to kill the swarm. This looks like a job for... how about... “Dr. Ultrasound”?!
Meanwhile, the Martian Manhunter discovered that telepaths can detect minds dominated by Starro. One telepath in particular plans to use that ability to go on the offensive. Grodd save us all! But in gorilla warfare, collateral damage is acceptable... and Grodd isn’t worried about preserving innocent hosts!

“Quo Vadis 1: Who?”
Vic’s fight with Sportsmaster has gone viral and for the most part, no one believes it was real. Sure, there was a “fight” but could a TV newsguy actually beat the Sportsmaster? So Vic doesn’t have to worry about his identity to the general public. Instead he’s seen to be more and more of a shill pushing fake news.
But Vic did use some moves which were pretty advanced outside of expert fighters. One such person is the media mogul Lee Travis, noticing Vic’s deceptive skill and is just as curious as Vic can be. So Travis calls an associate of his: Merry Pemburton, the Girl of a Googleplex of Gimmicks. Merry is recently back from Santa Prisca as is Vicki Vale who is doing a major series on the effects of Hurricane Chris on the depressed tropical island.
If you’re been reading thjis series, you already know Merry knows who Vic is. If you haven’t been reading, then the Quo Vadis arc is a great place to start as we discover where Vic is going.

“KINGDOM OF STARRO”
Long ago, in the Pytharian Age...
The great Castle Illumines has fallen, but the immortal King Vandar Adg (Vandal Savage), along with a handful of his elite royal guardsmen, retain their mental freedom... thanks entirely to a barbarian with a demon hand known to them only as Claw! This mysterious swordsman has proven immune to and “unconquered” by the demonic starfish spores plaguing the land - yet he now finds himself surrounded and hopelessly outnumbered, protecting a ruler for whom he has no love.
Their only hope, so says the King, lies in their ability to fight their way to the royal dungeons. Therein, Vandar has been detaining a prisoner who may possess the requisite power needed to aid the unlikely fellowship in defeating Starro. Once a humble migrant shepherd, this prisoner became a powerful and headstrong wizard... and thus a threat to Vandar’s reign. His name is Mamaragan, though you might know him better by the magic word he uses to empower himself. Against all odds, Claw must find and liberate this captive wizard while also convincing him, in the name of the greater good, to speak the word that may be humanity’s salvation: SHAZAM!

Life on Gamorra has never been idyllic before. In fact, it’s rather dystopian. So when some of the citizens start talking about their loyalty to a tentacle creature from outer space called Starro, most of their neighbors just chalk it up to nervous breakdowns.
But the leader of Gamorra takes disloyalty very seriously. And so he asks his daughter Yumiko – AKA Cybernary – to root out this epidemic of echinoderms!
Given that she’s been twisted into a cybernetic monstrosity with functionally no free will, she sets herself to the task.
As far as solutions go, she’s more of a hammer than a scalpel.

Things are finally looking up for Jade and Obsidian – until their father, Alan Scott, get possessed by an interstellar starfish. Which, it turns out, might be a parole violation.
Can their estranged mother, Rose Yifei, help? Or is she compromised by Starro as well?
Will Jade and Todd overcome this speedbump in their family redemption arc?

“RAGE MACHINES”
Never forgive. Never forget. In the Red Lantern Corps, you kick our ass? We come back and kick your ass twice as hard. Always.
The last time Guy faced off against the nearly unstoppable Doomsday, he got beat. Badly. Like, really badly. It was a complete stomp (see GREEN LANTERN #4). But things are different now. Guy is wearing a totally different color this time and has the power of the entire Red Lantern Corps at his back. There’s no doubt in Guy’s mind that they’re the toughest rage-filled S.O.B.s to ever sling power rings. And Doomsday? His killer instinct is neutered by the Starfish attached to his face. Yeah, he’s still unbelievably dangerous, obviously. But any Red Lantern knows, it’s righteous rage that truly makes you strong - and Starro’s got Doomsday acting like an emotionless tool. That’s a weakness.
So place your damn bets. The Red Lantern Corps is going to take away Starro’s most powerful weapon... or die trying!

TITANS ORIGINS - Part 3
BEIJING - The modern day has presented many challenges to China. It has been decided that The Great Ten may not be enough. Therefore, the Justice League of China is formed - for both practical and propaganda purposes. Among the recruits are KONG KENAN (the star of a viral video in China, of a young Chinese man defending fellow citizens) and SHADO FEI (the daughter of the late Accomplished Perfect Physician). The duo suffer a training from hell under Fang Zhifu.
Shado is very skeptical of Kong, who is more or less the unofficial leader of the group and the most popular. Though genetically altered to mimic the powers of Superman, Kong is a teenager and can at times be a bully. Additionally, Shado is treated extremely unfairly by Fang Zhifu.
Things come to a head when Kong is commanded by Fang Zhifu to kill Shado. Supposedly, Shado is secretly a member of a democratic underground resistance in China, sent to spy on the Justice League of China. Though Kong agonizes over the decision to serve his country or his conscience, the decision is taken away by the timely arrival of DONNA TROY. An Amazonian can of whoop ass is opened on the collective Justice League of China, and Donna escapes with Shado and Kong in tow.
