Tangent Superman's Reign #1-3
Since it was requested time to post some Tangent Superman's Reign. I was a big fan of Tangent though my comic reading time came much after it ended.
It was a comic line that existed and was made of several one shots concerning different heroes within the same universe. Ones with name's like the regular DCU'ers but completely different otherwise, might post some of the old Tangent Stuff later as well but for now....the first three issues!
Basic set up...
E-9, the Tangent Universe and New Earth (erroneously labeled E-1 many times throughout the series) meet for the first (well, not actually they had a little prelude in Ion Gaurdian of the Universe and then a issue of JLA that led into the mini/maxi 12 issue series)
The Crisis of Two Worlds begins on New Earth with Wally fighting a guy with a familiar name (Mirror Master) who hails from the Tangent Earth.
Page wise front story is 17 pages and backup is 5.
(Lia Nelson the Tangent Flash came to New Earth in the afforementioned Justice League issue)
Wally and her beat Mirror Master up and proceed to inquire on how to send the dear home and look for the Tangent Green Lantern's Lantern which got stranded here since Infinite Crisis.
We then zoom to Tangent Spectre and Manhunter (not shown) trying to rescue...
He's the inspiring Superman equivalent of this Earth.
Then we get the 5 page backup of Tangent Guy Gardner being drafted by a mysterious lady who's anti Superman sine the TSuperman has taken over Earth recently.
And he recounts some Tangent history.
The Lantern returned to the Tangent verse allows...
...the Tangent GL, who gives the dead Green Lights to come back for short times, to recover.
An annoying thing about Mary's story is that we never fid out about one of the Joker's fate, guess they might pick that up later.
Using his massive psychic powers Superman slowly detects the various people rising against him.
Spectre runs into some bpretty bad luck trying to free the Atom.
In the back up Guy continues to give us info about the Tangent Universe including it's President who was a former member of the Metal Men an elite military squad who worked in one of the wars of the Tangent Universe.
I liked Tangent Powergirl's design, fun wasn't it?
TGreen Lantern is referring to Spectre and his attempts at rescue of the Atom.
"is trying to locate you"
The someone being Hal who along with Black Lightning and Black Canary are trying to locate their vanished teammates.
And in the bckup some more tangent info with the story of the TUltra-Humanite and how he battled the Tangent Heroes.
And then Guy and the mysterious woman reach their destination with nothing to tell us where it is aside from deep underground in a military like place.
Also if anyone can suggest how I tag the tangent characters I'd appreciate it since I don't wanna attempt it without knowing.
