A classic! I got the sense they were trying to mix in some of the upcoming changes from after Crisis on Infinite Earths in parts of the story, like the inclusion of Thunderbolt.


I have always liked Captain Comet.


Yep he’s one of the sharpest dressed superheroes out there!


I must vote for Captain Comet, he so rarely appears.
