The Guardian takes in Nightwing and Flamebird in Rucka, Trautman and Perez’s story in Action 885 (March 2010).
As Dr. Light and Jax-Ur finish their examination of Nightwing, the Guardian and the Science Police show up to arrest them. Mon-El also arrives, and demands that the pair be kept safe, and insists on staying with them.
Lois Lane also shows up, as does Sam Lane and a new Squad K. It’s a big stand-off in the Science Police headquarters, and not likely to go well.
But the one who ends it is Car-Vex, undercover as one of Lane’s soldiers, sets off a bomb, destroying the building.
Robinson and Urbano put Captain Atom through a wringer in this chapter, as he faces an angry Justice League. The last most knew of him was his transformation into Monarch during Countdown.
Captain Atom’s speech t the League is summarized rather than shown. Likely a good thing, as the Leaguers comment on how repetitive and self-pitying it is. He insists that he needs to get back to the magical realm.
So the League contact Shadowpact. Blue Devil, Detective Chimp, Enchantress and Ragman show up.
