The The Dark Side, Part One wiki last edited by guttridgeb on 06/27/13 03:33AM View full history

They are Stormwatch, a dangerous super human police force whose existence is kept secret from the world Directly following the ominous events of SUPERMAN #1, Adam One leads half the Stormwatch team to recover the [INFORMATION REDACTED] from deep in the Himalayas. Meanwhile, Jack Hawksmoor and the rest of the Stormwatch crew look to recruit two of the deadliest super humans on the planet: Midnighter and Apollo! And if they say no? Perhaps the Martian Manhunter can change their minds...

General Notes

Superman appears in one panel of the issue but it does not count as a credited appearance as it is not actually Superman but a photo-shopped picture Projectionist finds on the Internet, depicting Apollo beating the tar out of "you-know-who" on

The Demon Knights also appear in a single panel as a flashback to what are assumed to be previous incarnations of Stormwatch.

This is probably the best 1# of the new 52 so far, I had mixed feelings going in to this because I wasn't sure if the premier super hero team of the Wildstorm universe would fit in to the DCnU because lets face it they do stuff different in Stormwatch than the JLA.    I was scared in case they where going to water them down and turn them in to a generic super hero team but after reading it my worrys fell away because it feels just like a Wildstorm book a bit weird, a bit bad ass and a bit smart ...
