Despite the link both these characters have with Monarch, I can’t remember them ever crossing paths. I bet Captain Atom wishes that had remained the case.
Time for a summer event, I think – “Timestorm” pitting past and present characters against each other. $100* if you can guess who’s behind it all (revealed next Friday!)
Or maybe it’s an excuse for me to not worry about finding fancy backgrounds for a few issues . . .
*That’s $100 in Monopoly money, okay?
Sometimes the pairings on these Mash-Ups are driven by the position of the characters and how I can get them working together. Other times, like today, the theme just jumps out and demands they be teamed up.
So 179 issues later, we get a sequel to the first time Captain Atom and Jessica Cruz fought over the Capitol building.
