Action 615 – Green Lantern at the trade show, Blackhawk and Wild Dog return, Nightwing suspects Speedy, and Black Canary finds a body
Is it the cover of Action 615? Or an ad for a new Friday the 13th movie?
Arisia is working a trade show, and Hal is wandering around, amusing himself. Veronica Hawkes debuts, but we only see her briefly, and from behind.
Two new villains attack the trade show, part of a group called the Freak Show. Castle has powers I really like, teleporting and exchanging places with someone else.
Castle is fairly skilled at using this to manipulate an opponent, and traps Green Lantern in a yellow vault.
Marty Paske and Rick Burchett bring Blackhawk back, as Janos runs into Natalie Reed, the former actress with communist affiliations, the Lady Blackhawk of this era.
Janos accepts a dangerous mission, simply because the person asking is named Leslie, and is really crushed when Leslie turns out to be a man.
Collins, Beatty and Nyberg bring back Wild Dog in this issue as well. He shoots a lot of criminals in this story.
But the storyline itself will focus on a young boy who sees Wild Dog in action, and becomes his biggest fan.
Wolfman, Patton and Poston do give Nightwing some solo time in this story, as Roy Harper is off tracking Cheshire. Dick finds out the CBI have not informed the proper channels about their operation in England.
We see the softer side of Cheshire, as she tends to Lian.
After Dick catches Speedy in a lie, he calls the New Teen Titans to speak to Danny Chase, who tells him Roy is no longer CBI. Changeling gets a line, but Cyborg, Starfire and Raven are just seen.
Wright, DuBurke, and Marcos approach the end of the Black Canary storyline. Isn’t that an exciting page to open the story on, so near to its climax?
Dinah finds a dead body at one point. That’s mildly exciting.
