I’ve always had a soft spot for Obsidian and thought that he (and his sister Jade) were interesting legacy characters.

This first week we will be taking a look at Obsidian’s first appearance before we spend the rest of June with the team he ultimately becomes a founding member of: Infinity, Inc.

Week One:


  • What did you think of Obsidian and his powers?

It has been a while since I read these, but I remember him being very underpowered in his early appearances compared to what he will be later.


Oh, he was most definitely was underpowered early on.

Here is Week Two for you all. We are now moving into the first storyline in Infinity, Inc, which is a team that Obsidian was a founding member of.

This week’s question is:

  • What did you think of Obsidian’s interactions with the other Infinitors?

And here is our third week.

What to Read

  • Infinity, Inc. #5-8


  • What do you think of his relationship with his sister: Jade.

And here is the final week’s session.

What to Read

  • Infinity, Inc. #9-11


  • What are some of your theories about how Obsidian’s powers are connected to Alan’s?
