THE FLASH #2
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
Art by FRANK CHO
“COLD AS ICE, WILLING TO SACRIFICE”
Leonard Snart, a.k.a. Captain Cold, fancies himself a modern day Robin Hood - and his Merry Men are a street gang called the Rogues. They’re eccentric thieves with a strict moral code: no homocides. The Flash has had a few interactions with them, but mostly gave the Rogues a pass considering they kept other gangs that might engage in more serious violence, drugs, or sex crimes out of Central City. But now Mick “Heatwave” Rory has hooked up with them - and Barry feels responsible, since he’s the one that got Rory’s wrongful conviction overturned and put him back on the street. Any crimes Rory commits now are on him, so maybe it’s time to bring the whole gang to justice. They’re just normal, slow as $&@# people with tech, right? How long could it take?
Flash Fact: The effective corporate tax rate is 18%, whereas a citizen who only earns $38,701 a year pays 22%.
Snart knows who the real criminals are. Banks. Insurance companies. Huge corporations. They steal from normal, hard-working people and nobody steals back... nobody but the Rogues. Since the Flash started do-gooding in Snart’s city, a confrontation seemed inevitable - though a straight fight with the Flash is like getting hit by lightning: you’re beat before you know what happened. If, however, Captain Cold could lure the scarlet speedster into his absolute zero trap, dramatically slowing down his molecules through a “Flash-Freezing” process, their fight might just be a lot more even...
Meanwhile, the Central City Citizen’s ace reporter Iris West receives a request to meet from an old source within the CIA. This source thinks he’s stumbled upon a dangerous conspiracy that has influence within the upper echelons of the Agency. He’s willing to give her the story if she’s willing to secure him a meeting with the one man fast enough to help him: the Flash! But can Iris really trust King Faraday... or has the “White King” just put Barry in “Checkmate”?

“MAXIMUM PENALTY”
Despero of Kalanor. You have reached the maximum release date for your sentence corresponding to convictions on twenty-three counts of Unlawful Mental Coercion and Psychic Domination. Welcome to discharge from imprisonment.
Never one to waste time, Despero gives a press conference at the spaceport leaving the Takron-Galtos prison planet and lambasts the Green Lantern Corps as usurpers of Kalanorian sovereignty. There is a sincerely held religious belief that rare three-eyed members of his species, like Despero himself, have the divine right and, indeed, the obligation to mind-control others. He believes the Guardians of the Universe have no right to criminalize and judge their faith based on alien norms and values! To combat this “oppression,” Despero boldly declares his candidacy for Prime Minister of Kalanor - and announces a platform centering on withdrawal from the United Planets and revocation of Green Lantern jurisdiction within their home solar system! The scary thing is... it looks like the ex-con might win!
Hal Jordan put Despero away five years ago. Despite knowing the fin-headed fiend oversaw a vast criminal empire, all the Green Lantern Corps could prove in Space Court was that he abused his psychic powers. Hal still can’t prove that Despero has blood on his hands... but a surveillance construct just might discover something he can use. Technically, as long as it only records movements in public spaces Hal doesn’t need a warrant. But will that technicality protect him when Despero learns he’s being watched??
Meanwhile, Jon Stewart picks up the slack in Sector 2814 by investigating the universe’s greatest act of vandalism. Who etched a continent-sized phallus and scrotum on Omnicron Ceti IV’s moon?
Plus, one of Guy Gardner’s informants tips him off about the location of a Khund fugitive. Unfortunately, intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo is already on the case! Will these two infamously foul-mouthed hot-heads clash violently - or is this the start of a brutal bromance?

Legacy: Prelude to The Path of Darkness Saga
In the New Mexico desert, dozens of men and women are excavating an old gold mine though everyone knows there's never been any gold there. However, the man in black pays them to dig, so dig they do. Then someone finds something. A mysterious sealed black box that no one can open with an inscription "The blood of my own" with the initials DJB. That's when the man in black appears, cuts his thumb, and applies it to the seal.
Two weeks later, New Mexico State Police are on the scene of the mine. All of the men and women are dead. They are dried husks, as if all of the liquid had been sucked out of their bodies. There's no sign of a struggle, just one set of footprints leading away from the site.
In San Francisco, CA, the man in black sits and reads from parchment. More than the words on the paper, he hears a voice in his head "Revive the cult, find the one. Revive the cult, find the one!" And suddenly, the meaning of the words sparks a revelation. He's going to need help, lots of help. And he knows just how he's going to get it.

The Path of Darkness Saga: The Man in Black Part 1 of 3
Homelessness is a problem in nearly every major city, including Berkeley, CA. That is, until a mysterious man in black appears in the city. Slowly, night after night, the city’s homeless population dwindles, until none are left.
In the city of Oakland, a new drug has hit the streets called P&P. Someone is targeting young people, high school kids and young adults in college. Already the drug has spread to the UC Berkeley campus where a riot broke out at a football game between users. Those users suddenly collapsed, dying nearly immediately at the scene. And from a distance, a man in black smirks.
They’ve all seen OD victims before, but none quite like this. This is different, stranger, deadlier. Friends Virgil, Tim, Stephanie, and Rick make a conscious decision to investigate, quietly, without drawing attention to themselves.
From the diary of Tim Drake - September 20XX
It's been more than 2 years since Steph and I finally left Gotham to attend college. We had our choice of colleges, but we both decided getting away from Gotham and capes and cowls was the best idea. UC Berkeley was really the only choice, especially once I found out my good friend Virgil was also here. From our days as Teen Titans, I've always respected Virgil's sense of right and wrong and his intelligence. We've all enjoyed NOT being heroes, just being regular kids. But then those kids overdosed and we knew we had to do something. I only hope we can figure out what's going on before more people die.

Sales of Xenothium have skyrocketed since Red X hunted down Nightwing on the streets of Blüdhaven. Naturally, when Red X approaches Meridian through Professor Chang, they’re interested in his services.
Of course, they’re unaware of Red X’s big secret: he IS Nightwing.
Before bringing him into the fold, Meridian has a mission for him. An audition, so to speak.
His mission will take him to the cyberpunk island city-state of Gamorra. His objective: capture the experimental physicist known as Kim Süskind and remand her to Meridian custody. Preferably alive.
Easier said than done when the physicist in question happens to have the power of invisibility and force-fields.
This is Dick’s first time using the Xenothium-powered equipment Chang made for him in the field. What is it capable of, and is it even safe to use? Can Dick convincingly play the role of super villain while keeping his moral code intact?
And, what does an arms dealer like Meridian want with an experimental physicist?

Recruitment Part 1 of 3
“I want to hire you to be my Head of Security to the world, but secretly I need you to eliminate targets for me, as they come up, 1 million per target. Here’s your list of the first 10”. – Lex to Deathstroke
Slade doesn’t like Lex. He’s typically the type of person Slade would murder for free. He’s intelligent to the point of condescension. Too rich to know what’s good for him and some would even say evil, but deep down, Slade knows Lex is just selfish. Nevertheless, when Lex has a contract, he pays before the contract, and after the job is done, and he pays well. So when Slade is approached by Lex, he knows something big is up. How big, time will tell. Meanwhile, it’s a steady paycheck.
Across the street, a shadowy figure spies the “secret” meeting from a rooftop. Not usually one to stay in one spot, this meeting catches her attention. Perhaps she lingers too long, but it doesn’t seem to be an issue. Afterall, Catwoman always lands on her feet.
From the files of Lex Luthor
Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Head of Acquisitions/Theft) – The charming, beautiful, seductive, and fearless Selina Kyle. Honestly, she’s not my type, but she IS the greatest thief in the known world. She’s relentless once she has her mark, with not even Batman able to stop her once she makes up her mind. Recruiting her could be tricky. She’s been known to spy for Batman, turn her back on him, then spy for him again. She could potentially be the most dangerous yet lucrative member of my organization.
