(Why is this one so LATE?! …I’m so sorry!)
Our hacktivists, The Movement, left off last issue with Katharsis ready to give the cops they had hostage/on trial a beat down when they tried to escape (after knocking Vengeance Moth out of her wheelchair). Tremor caused an earthquake that knocked Katharsis off balance, (and somehow Ven.. who was floating) and the cops got away.
So Katharsis is facing down Tremor. Tremor says she close the tunnels and open new ones and the cops will never get back there. Katharsis, who sees her as a traitor (and she’s right, Tremor has been the mole, the snitch, if you will). The “ViewTube” Channel is broadcasting the soon to be brawl, with one, freyafourA commenting: “this just shows that two women can’t get along lol!” Because women have to be representing their gender all the damn time.
Vengeance Moth… ummm… is not glowing and floating as we’d seen her last, she’s on the floor, having been pushed from her wheelchair. Tremor and Katharsis start brawling, which scares the hell out of everyone, since they are underground, Katharsis is a bruiser wielding a sword and Tremor is literally a walking earthquake. So the humans flee.
Virtue and Ven calm the situation down and they prepare to perform an exorcism on Burden (who isn’t really possessed but has mental health problems and superprowers).
Mouse, meanwhile, is fighting the Graveyard Faction and Cornea Killer. The Graveyard Faction was hired by the Wealthy inhabitants of Coral City when they got fed up with the Movement. The Cornea Killer is trying to wipe out poverty one homeless person at a time… by killing them… and taking their eyes.
The Graveyard Faction must be the strangest assemblance of villains… Anguish, Arson (who barfs fire), Monster baby, the Cornea Killer (who makes a single raincloud over his victims), and Pallas…
But not this Pallas:
Anyway, the villain Pallas is a man. He looks big and durable… maybe he could be part Themysciran… wait, how does that work?
Anyway, Virtue gets an idea to take the fear from Burden so that he feels cured. She also baptizes him with vitamin water (with mango essence!). Katharsis and Tremor talk it out over sundaes and no one knows that Mouse is in danger until it’s too late.
Roshanna and Kulap walk out of Calvin’s and see Mouse strung up.
Everything is going wrong, with the world watching, how will the Movement get back on track?
Calendar Man is still reporting for Channel 52 underground since the Crime Syndicate’s take over. So we get our little media update on Bane, the Penguin, et al.
