Earth-Two #9

Writer: James Robinson
Artist: Nicola Scott

A new arc begins for the Wonders that slowly are resurfacing on Earth-2. The Tower of Fate will bring about the much expected return of one of the most representative characters of that world; for now, however, readers are introduced to the human host of Nabu's helm, Khalid Ben-Hassin, a young man that each time he uses the magical artifact, gains great powers at the cost of his sanity; an interesting conflict for someone who will need to to save the world on a daily basis by losing himself in the process. The Man Who Was Scared also sees the debut of Sonia Sato, who in the old continuity was the newest Judomaster, and here is also a Major in the World Army. Robinson is being very successful at making this book a reflection of the diverse society in which we live today; it doesn't feel forced, it actually feels quite natural. Hawkgirl's grudge against Green Lantern, or rather, her way of expressing it, makes one go "why don't you tell me how you really feel about it?" Fun stuff, great issue!
