Morrison gave us such a cool, 60's-style playground with Dr. Dedalus and Spyral. I was only able to force myself to jog in the cold this morning by sending my mind elsewhere...and somehow it drifted to Batman and, more specifically, the U.N. super-intelligence agency Spyral. I kept myself busy thinking up connections to existing characters and inventing new ones and just generally attempting to flesh out the world a little bit more. And since we're not likely to see it used much once Morrison's run is over (which is both bad and good because I haven't been buying any DC books outside Inc.), I thought it might be fun to bring the thought exercise here, to some of the finest minds in comic-book-dom.
So, who else has worked for (or against!) Spyral in the past, or has otherwise been caught up by Netz?
Some of the obvious pre-existing candidates: Spysmasher, Nemesis, Phantom Lady, Checkmate agents, DEO, etc. Maybe less obvious? Rex Mason, pre-Metamorpho...Peter Cannon...who else? How about Acro-Bat or the other Justice Experience folks from "Chase?" C'mon people, have some fun! Create new characters, too!
How did Netz keep all these powerful personalities in line? Kathy Kane, El Gaucho, Lazlo Valentin, (the Hood? Matron?)...What was the bureaucracy like? How did it work on a nuts and bolts level?
And what about Netz himself? Is this truly the last we've seen of him? Or has he laid (like Jigsaw from the Saw movies) traps to get revenge on his enemies well after his death? Or will there be a new Agent Zero/Dr. Dedalus to revitalize the organization?
Or, y'know...nothing. This thread dies a terrible death in 3, 2,...
