Action 621 – Hal gets a new job, Wild Pup gets it in the shoulder, the Secret Six get on the case, Deadman gets stuck, and Weng Chan gets crazy
A nice Blackhawk cover on Action 621.
Hal Jordan begins a new job as a test pilots with the Gremlins in this story by Owsley, MD Bright and Jose Marzan. The Gremlins were introduced a few weeks earlier in Green Lantern’s story in Secret Origins.
As the Green Lantern ring automatically protects one from injury, Hal does not feel he can accurately do his job with it on, and leaves it behind.
He almost regrets it, but the scene demonstrates his flying skills.
When he returns to get his ring, his battery explodes.
Wild Dog goes after the Night Slasher in this chapter, by Collins, Rockwell and Nyberg. And though he does not realize it, Wild Pup is right behind him.
This time, Wild Pup does not help out, he just gets stabbed.
Pasko, Springer and McLaughlin continue with the Secret Six, as they begin their next mission, one involving academia.
Mockingbird no longer seems to be keeping such close tabs on the new group, as they begin to actively research their dead predecessors.
Deadman has a harder time of things than he expected, in this chapter by Baron, Jones and DeZuniga.
Deadman gets stuck in the body of LeGros, while the twins are possessed by the spirits of twin voodoo queens, long dead. Madame Waxahachie knows what is going on, but is hard pressed to help.
Weng Chan gets the impressive stuff in this Pasko/Burchett chapter of Blackhawk. He is being tortured, steamed to death slowly, along with the bulk of the team.
Janos is busy messing around with the aviatrix, as Weng risks a severely sliced face to free himself, and the rest of the group.
