FLASH FACT! For their last performance – an escape act!

Haley's Circus is travelling through Europe, providing entertainment for various cities and a means of survival on the run from the war.

When Dr. Fate shows Boston a glimpse into the future, it becomes clear that Fate is more than just a carnival attraction.

Krul puts together some great charact...
