AQUAMAN #34 *Fire From Heaven tie-in
Written by GEOFF JOHNS
Art by JIM LEE
Damocles’ vision is of a world dominated by Gen-Active metahumans. Any Atlantean who survived and adapted to underwater life following the Great Cataclysm was metahuman, and therefore all their current descendants carry that genetic heritage. In many ways Atlantis is akin to a third island, ancient predecessor to Kuano and Akonu. But Damocles knows the weak heart of Atlantis’ current king, Arthur Curry - who, even now, summons a Lord of Order to fight the Omega Titans rather than join them in their holy crusade. Indeed, Curry rejected a similar offer of metahuman unity from Vandal Savage, so he’d certainly reject Damocles’ more radical approach to evolution. Atlantis’ former king, however, Orm the Ocean Master… perhaps he will be more receptive. Damocles already controls four Swords, why not a Trident as well?
Ages ago…
The Boiling Sea has finally calmed itself. The incomparable wizard Arion discovered that the source of the heat was Sharca, a mortal woman. On a failed pilgrimage to lost Oceanid (the only Atlantean colony not on Earth, located in the Pegasus galaxy), Sharca encountered and bonded with a Zirandian, an incarnation of the fundamental force of existence! Her fellow travelers - her family - were killed. Overburdened with guilt, she returned to Earth and chose to burn alone… forever.
Convincing Sharca to end her self-imposed exile, Arion takes her under his wing. He believes she can use this incredible power for good… but can anyone control a Zirandian? And will the current ruler of Atlantis, King Atlan II, condone Arion’s efforts… or oppose his risky approach?

Palace Ballroom, Uzikistan: With the help of The Red Lion and President Illyana Khisnovs' private security, Ben was able to stop the attempt on the Presidents life by a group of assassins from The Guild. Thankfully no guests were hurt and all assassins were killed but tensions are still high, especially now that Ben's ex-wife Flo' Crowley is the head of President Khisnov's security team! The last time he saw Flo' Ben vowed to kill her on the spot and is about to fulfill that promise when Matthew Bland, The Red Lion steps in. He tells Ben that as much as he would love to see the outcome of this confrontation, Ben should reconsider killing a member of Khisnovs' inner circle in front of so many witnesses. It just wouldn't be a good look for him right now.
As much as he dislikes Bland, Ben knows that he's right. He'll just have to wait for a better time. Khisnov thanks everyone for their help in saving lives as she has the guests escorted safely from the ballroom. Flo' walks up to Ben to thank him and asks would he like to join her later for a nightcap. She smiles and says that she heard that he's a widower now, maybe he can come by her place tonight and work a few things out under the sheets. Ben, just gives her a look and says, "Things will be settled between us soon".
Later as he meets with President Khisnov, she thanks him again for saving her life and wonders if he would meet with her in her private chambers to discuss a position in her gov't. Ben tells her that she doesn't need to pretend anymore. He knows that she staged the whole assassination attempt. She hired the assassins to stage an attempt on her life so that her people would rally around her. It's amazing that there were dozens of killers, no guests were hurt and that all of the assassins were killed. Can't have any of them left alive to expose the lie. Illyana denies, his accusation saying that she would never put her people at risk. As they enter her room, he tells her not to worry, he won't reveal her secret. He understands that there are times when difficult choices must be made. He's made many in his past and will make many more in the future.

THE FLASH #49 *Fire From Heaven tie-in
Barry Allen is gone, his body possessed by the Black Racer. We now live in the…
The world is in peril, but Henry Allen remains laser-focused on his goal: the Black Racer. Henry’s son Barry never gave up trying to free him from jail following his wrongful conviction, so Henry won’t give up trying to free his son from possession by the New God of Death. But he’s just a man, what can he do? Well, he can call in favors and put together a team. Because if you’re going to kill a god, then you need… a Deicide Squad: Captain Cold, Scandal Savage, Killer Frost, Cheetah, the Turtle, Magog, Peacemaker, and Captain Atom!
Captain Cold owed Henry from when Henry joined the Rogues as “Dr. Ultrasound” to help during the Starro Wars (see THE FLASH #13). Captain Atom, Magog, and Peacemaker were part of the “Justice Battalion,” and come courtesy of super-spy King Faraday, who Henry helped escape Bialya (see THE FLASH #38). Killer Frost, the Turtle, and Cheetah all worked for Vandal Savage’s World Organization for the Advancement of Humanity and were all arrested by the Justice League (see HUMANITY FIRST: AGENTS OF W.O.A.H. #4). They’re provided, with complimentary bombs in their heads, courtesy of friends that Henry made during his stay with the Department of Corrections. And Scandal Savage actually volunteered, eager to prove that she opposes what her father stood for.
Can this motley crew really take down a god? It looks like they’ll get to practice first… on an Omega Titan!

Mister Whisper puts his contingency plans into motion!
For Manfred Seltsam, the alliance with Damocles was one of convenience and necessity… and necessity breeds resentment.

The plan was to make such a messiah and use him to destroy Damocles… but Pyra took care of that problem.
Now, Damocles' mind no more than sewage circling the drain.
Still, you can’t be too sure. And no guarantee Pyra ignores him forever.
Cloning Basilisk is child’s play. Valuable as his genes are, they’re stable. Predictable.
His lady love, on the other hand?
Cloning somebody as powerful as Penelope Pink is a challenge, but he’s up to the task!
Sure hope nothing does wrong!
