mazingman728's 52 SPOILERS
Week 23, Day 1
Oolong Island: It would appear that Dr. Magnus was captured at the end of last issue as this issue starts off with him in the head unit of a giant robot being piloted by an Ape-Man and a Crocodile-Man***maybe an Alligator-Man as we can’t see his nose to make sure…but definitely a lizard***. The top section is lowered to the ground where Dr. Magnus is welcomed by Dr. Morrow. All of the missing mad scientists have been gathered and are on the island. One has created a giant robot cricket, the Cricketron, which goes out of control which gets blasted by the islands defenses and then stepped on by the giant robot that brought Dr. Magnus to the island. The people that the scientists are working for have “a very long reach”. Dr. Morrow is asked to join them “in creating the future. And before you ask, No you really don’t have a choice”. ***Mad scientists on an island with an unlimited budget…it’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys. And if you look closely you will see that the beach umbrellas are from Penguin Umbrellas.
Week 23, Day 5
Yemen: Whisper A’Daire is performing a ceremony where children are chained to the alter. Renee and Question are looking on from a hidden walkway above the room. Isis’s brother is then dragged into the room where a wolf-man creature starts to beat him up and is joined by others in attendance and is then dragged away. Renee and Question are then found by a big red creature which Renee blows a hole in with her special gun and the two end up falling to the floor below. While Renee is shooting the creatures in the room, Question grabs the book that Whisper was using.
Black Adam and Isis then arrive as they crash through the ceiling; Isis heals Renee from a wound she receives across her stomach. Renee tells Black Adam and Isis where Amon has been taken. The two bust into the lab where Amon has been taken and Isis attempts to heal Amon’s injuries with her powers but is unable to fully heal him to due to the damage his body has taken; he has had too much damage to his nerves so he will not be able to walk again. Black Adam then threatens to kill the creatures in the lab for what they had done to Amon but Isis won’t have it and blows the creatures out of the lab. Black Adam lays his left hand on Amon’s chest and asks him to say his name. With a flash of lightning Anon is cured and in a costume that is a gold lightning bolt from his shoulders down to his stomach and the rest in black and now calls himself Osiris.
Week 23, Day 6
Kahndaq: Black Adam tells Isis that he is able to share his power just as Captain Marvel is able to share his powers with Freddy Freeman. Isis kisses Black Adam and tells him”…I promised you when we found my brother that I would help you change the world. And I know where to start. Osiris come join us. We are going to China”.
Next in 52 shows a figure in a red cape, it kind of looks like Martian Manhunter, looking at a mural of dead Justice League members. On the cover - and I don’t know if it is from coloring or a clue - in the “5” appears to be a skull looking down at the hieroglyph of the man hieroglyph and under the “N” in the word twenty-three appears to be a hieroglyph of a female character. The ticker on the bottom of the cover reads “The Island of Dr. Morrow…Renee Montoya-Is SHE the Answer?” And yes, the “she” is in capitol letters which makes it standout.
Origin this issue is Wildcat by Mark Wade and Jerry Ordway.
