Okay so very confused. So Toby was the leader of Spider’s brother and he was posing as Toby and the Menthor helmet made him turn against his brother. What did they want from Raven? I hope we get some more clarification soon or did I miss something?? Still an awesome comic though.

This book continues to impress as this issue focuses on NoMan who reminds me of a Doctor Manhattan in that he is losing his humanity and his relationship with his wife and his tragic past. I am not sure why he let his wife kill herself but I am sure that will be revealed in good time. It looks like the new Dynamo is a trader of some sort or a double agent for Spider. I am liking the look back at the old T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents a lot and how it is in real time.

The Powers That Will Kill Them

This book introduces the newest iteration of the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, a covert  team of UN Metahumans whose powers will eventually kill them. It is an interesting concept that was really needed to separate this book from other UN Sponsored teams like JLI or Checkmate. This concept may have been fresh when this book appeared in the sixties but it has been done to death since so the “powers will kill them” identity and the Salesman are things that are needed to keep the book interesting in the DCU of the 21st Century. I look forward to learning more about this team as the writing was great and the art was fantastic. Great start for a book and team I knew nothing about before reading it.
