Week of 10 June 2009

(SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers. Don't read it before you've read the comics.)

R.E.B.E.L.S. #5 (8/09)
"The Stars We Are"
ROLL CALL: Amon Hakk, Bounder, Ciji, Geotrix, Strata, Vril Dox, Wildstar
ROLL CALL (Omega Men): Broot, Darkfire, Doc, Elu, Tigorr

Lots going on this issue. Ciji reveals that she's on Dox's side. Amon Hakk goes on a mission to kill Dox. Astrild offers Dox a position as a favored lieutenant of Starro. The Dominators fight against Starro's invading troops. Dox sends Wildstar to retrieve the remnants of Silica. Dox and crew escape into hyperspace. And the Psions tell the Omega Men that their mission is to assassinate Starro.

I never thought I would be cheering for Dominators.

The blue-skinned woman with the crazy hair has a name now: Astrild Storm-daughter. She's still not very nice.


Elsewhere in DC Comics this week, there were no appearances or references to the Legion, Mon-El, or Tellus in ACTION #878. And in FLASH: REBIRTH #3, there was a virtual family reunion of speedsters and Allen Family members: Johnny Quick, Jesse Quick, Barry Allen, Wally West, Jay Garrick, Bart Allen, Iris West Allen, Max Mercury, even cameos of Barry's parents...but is there a single panel showing Jenni, or even a mention of her? No. Guess We know how she rates, eh?
