Action 620 – Arisia walks out, Wild Pup learns the secret, the Secret Six serve dinner, Deadman enters a voodoo priest, and Blackhawk saves the girl
The Secret Six get the cover of Action 620.
David, Howell and Starr end their run on Green Lantern with this issue. Hal manages to defeat many of the Freakshow, but Castle makes it away, running to his boss.
That turns out to be Lillian Hawkes, not Veronica. She kills Castle, to complete her cover-up, and Hal is left believing Veronica is the real villain. Sadly, these sisters never are seen again. I’m pretty sure that in the long run, Lillian disposes of Veronica and takes over the company herself, and no one is any more suspicious of her than Hal.
Arisia walks out on Hal at the end of the tale, pursuing her modelling career. She appears next not too long down the road, in an issue of New Guardians.
Collins, Rockwell and Nyberg put Wild Pup in the middle of the action in this Wild Dog story.
Once again the boy does prove himself helpful, but Wild Dog is not at all pleased that the kid is putting himself in such danger. Wild Pup hides in the back of Wild Dog’s truck as he leaves, and learns his hero’s identity.
