He wields the Sword of Cetus, forged from the tooth of the largest and most power Megalodon in history. He is the inheritor of the divine power of Poseidon, Hellenistic God of the Sea. He is known as the Aquaman and more recently as the Aquagod. He is… the outrageous Arthur Curry!
And in the other corner, wearing black and gold, he hails from Shiruta, Kahndaq by way of Ancient Egypt. He wields the power of not one but six Egyptian gods, including the stamina of Shu, the swiftness of Horus, the strength of Amon, the wisdom of Zehuti, the power of Aten, and the courage of Mehen! He is the Regent-Protector of Kahndaq and the man who has been secretly stymieing Aquaman’s quest to reunite Atlantis for the past year. Known as Black Adam, he is… the majestic Teth-Adam!
Their grudge match will be settled, here and now, to the death!
Meanwhile, Crablab and Mera make headway in their effort to expose the “Cerulean Lantern” cult.

THE FLASH #27
Plot by EXCITER
Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
Art by FRANK CHO
“TWO-FACED POLITICS”
Iris West has scored a huge interview with the nation’s most talked-about Governor: Harvey Dent! Harvey was the tough-as-nails District Attorney of Gotham County, putting away scores of criminals before he was publicly burned by acid in the courtroom. The trauma caused a psychological break and he became the criminal known as “Two Face.” But everyone loves a redemption story! After serving his time, he asked the citizens of Missouri to “Believe in Harvey Dent Again,” and they did - electing him Governor!
Now Harvey is taking action in response to the seemingly endless non-human threats that have recently rocked the nation - from the Starro invasion (see STARRO WARS #1-4), to the destructive spread of the Doomsday Virus (see GREEN LANTERN #26 & 27), to the revelation that the Homeland Security Director was a Martian imposter (see last ‘ish!). Dent’s State, in which Central City is located, is the first in the nation to mandate Human Passports for all businesses and public services, requiring every resident to carry proof, pursuant to the emergency use of Stagg Enterprises’ Human Confirmation Test, that they are fully human beings. But does that test even work? Or is data being collected for other reasons?
In any event, some people are willing to accept a little risk in exchange for freedom. Amongst them: Captain Cold! When the Rogues decide to make an example of Dent during his interview, can the Flash keep his Governor and Iris safe? Should he even be helping Dent? Which of Harvey’s two faces is in control, anyway?

“CONTAINMENT PROTOCOLS”
Green Lantern HQ, Oa. Incident report: Ganthet, Supervising Guardian. With the help of local Earth government’s secret weapon, a metahuman code-named Damage, Corps members Stewart, Gardner, and Cruz were able to subdue Corpsman Jordan, who had lost control of his faculties after infection with the extremely dangerous mutagenic disease designated the “Doomsday Virus.” The origin of this virus is currently believed to be extra-universal, though a nearly identical variant exists in our universe and is suspected of being engineered in a Kryptonian Laboratory. Corpsman Jordan has been removed from Earth and admitted to the rehabilitation and treatment center on prison-planet Takron-Galtos for observation. However, a planetwide state of emergency is still in place on Earth. Despite containment protocols, the virus has spread…
People are getting sick and turning into unstoppable killing machines. Even one Doomsday Virus infection is enough to cause massive destruction. Can John Stewart and his team find a cure? Or at least stop the spread?
Meanwhile, Hal Jordan - now hugely muscled and covered in protruding bone spikes - uses all his considerable willpower to keep the Doomsday Virus’ violent influence in check while in confinement. This is no easy task, as he is constantly antagonized by an ever-vexatious detainee with a serious personal vendetta… the deposed alien dictator Despero! If Hal gives in to his rage, he may lose himself forever - and Despero knows it!

“You Better Be Ready To, Be Ready To…”
Chay-Ara, the adolescent daughter of our heroes has found a home in an English Boarding School which students from many different lands attend making the Thanagarian girl a little less noticeable. Part of any student’s education is the quest to fit in and to find a place where you belong. Chay-Ara has decided to examine her parents’ profession via video broadcasts the Earthers call “television”. Although she quickly realizes that many of the more interesting shows are fictious, she has noticed one starring a rather striking boy named Johnny Depp.
Chay-Ara’s school is exclusive enough to gather special attention from law enforcement organizations. Checkmate (big spy group), aided by Russian Major Zastrow, knows about the young Thanagarian and is looking at her as a possible source of information. When notice is taken of the Thanagarian’s interest in youth undercover work, recruitment is definitely on the table.
Meanwhile Hawkwoman and Hawkman’s bugs (planted by Captain Byth) have been discovered and steps are begun to add to the couple’s already tight security protocols. What our heroes don’t know is that CAW was on the other end and not just their over-zealous supervisor. CAW (Collective Assistance for Worlds) reacts to Byth’s sloppiness by initiating contact with Earth themselves.
And Chay-Ara has a nice last page surprise for all readers.

“Where in the World is Charles Victor Szasz?”
Part 1: “Say, What IS A Big ‘W’?”
DCBA’s national tour of the heavily promoted “Vic Sage Show” has started in Los Angeles. To highlight each stop, Vic plans on investigating an area’s most grisly, mmmm, not quite; perverse, almost but still a bit off; thrilling, oh, please; RATINGS GRABBING urban legend of the area. Vic really wants to be examining the legend of the Char Man of Ojai, California. Pop Culture fans will, of course recognize this as the birthplace of Colonel Steve Austin, American Astronaut. And the scene where Vic asks if Steve Austin reminds Ojai residents of the wrestler or the $6,000,000 Man is priceless. There’s also a group of fans concerned with finding the big W from the movie “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.”
The Char Man is supposedly the son of a father/son pair who were victims of a terrible house fire and the son allegedly flayed the father’s skin off his body but was too burned and was not arrested as the police thought him dead. The charred son is said to wander and attack innocents around Ojai. Does he exist? Is there a copycat?

They enjoy the thought broadcast from Earth of the opening rounds of the Final Thaumatic Velitation, and now wizards Darvilk the Miaanther and Byzant the Necrope oversee the concluding main events: anastrophic ZATANNA vs pandemonic SCARLET WITCH, and karmic DOCTOR FATE vs quixotic DOCTOR STRANGE!

Either way, with their friends freed, Magik's stepping discs and Raven's dimensional travel return everyone to their own universe and time. As for the Dying Earth and its dark sun, others will write tales of their future... if they have one.

For a guy who wears a mask so much of the time, Vic Sage is not a Halloween guy. Upon turning in early and stuffing his Pseudoderm mask with ear plugs to block out party animals from Hub City University, he is awoken by a spirit that looks a lot like his buddy Aristotle Rodor, PhD telling him about three spirits from his past present and (possible?) future. Not taking it seriously and also from having not only seen 21 adaptations of the original story, but actually reading the book, Vic plays along with the obvious gag. Until the first spirit wakes him…
Does our hero regain the holiday spirit and learn to spring for a couple of bags of candy every October or does he burn in Hell for all Eternity? Yeah, right, like we’re actually going to give away the answer in the solicitation. Look in the back of the book for the answers like every other schoolkid does.
