Obscurity of DC Presents: Ultra-bscure Book Club, Week 12 (February 5-February 11) --- DUO!

Welcome, @ObscurityofDCClub and other members of the DC Community! Welcome to Obscurity of DC’s twelfth Ultr-Obscure Book Club! This week, we’ll be focusing on…


Number of Issues: 6

VERY long description from dc.com: When Milestone returned, Reginald Hudlin and Denys Cowan weren’t planning to stop there! Now they welcome you to a whole new realm of original characters, extending far beyond Dakota…welcome to Earth-M! Nanotech engineers Dr. Kelly Vu and Dr. David Kim are committed to only one thing more than each other: using their regenerative nanobots to save the world. And following a violent attack, those very same nanobots end up saving David and Kelly’s lives…sort of. Their salvation comes with an unexpected consequence: husband and wife awaken to realize that they now share one super-powered body! Writer Greg Pak (Action Comics, Batman/Superman) and artist Khoi Pham (Teen Titans) team up to introduce two thrilling new superheroes in the body of one, with the power of billions of nanobots. But how close is too close, with the love of your life literally in your head? And what happens when a couple so closely bound discovers they have very different ideas about how their newfound powers should be used?

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. Why do you think David and Kelly turned down the $1 billion for their work? Would you do the same if you were in their shoes? Explain.
  2. Why do you think the man behind the mask exploded David, Kelly, and their experiment?
  3. What do you think was making Kelly/David disappear?
  4. Do you consider Kelly a hero, villain, or anti-hero? Why?
  5. I’m not sure if you remember, but way back in November, we read the series Xombi which followed David Kim in his original persona, Xombi. In this series, we see David Kim as a doctor with powers trying to save the world, his family, and himself. Which version of David Kim do you like more? Why?
