Damage – Out of Control | Comics

Ethan Avery signed up for Damage Project to serve his country not realizing he would be turned into a weapon of mass destruction.

During transportation, a hulking creature goes on a rampage by breaking out of a plane and head over to civilization. His immediate handler, Major Liggett informs his superior about this by referring it as Damage and tries to engage him in combat wearing an exo-suit, only to get thrashed around and rendered fully incapacitated.

Apparently, a member of United States Army named Ethan Avery has volunteered for an experimental program to serve, which gave him superpowers and turned him into an unstoppable behemoth called Damage. Avoiding locality, he goes into a secluded location for an hour-long countdown to end and then rest.

Operation overseer Colonel Marie Jonas came visiting the crash site of Stork-1 to have come face-to-face with Suicide Squad director Amanda Waller who came here to clear up her mess with her brand-new Task Force XL team. Elsewhere, Ethan has changes back to his human form after his hour of being a rage monster was over.

He later wakes up in a homeless shelter at Atlanta before going out to call his mother from a stranger's phone that was immediately tracked. Deadshot approached him in an alleyway before Parasite sneaked on him to absorb his power but collapsed almost immediately only for Giganta to intervene and slam him to the ground.

Though she momentarily thought that Damage has been taken care off but he tore her palms out. Harley Quinn didn't even made him flinch and nor did her teammates Akando or Solomon Grundy. It was for the timely arrival of Wonder Woman, Deadshot and Harley were bailed out from being smacked hard by their enraged rival.

Diana goes toe-to-toe and came to a realization that never had she ever fought a walking brutal beast like this before. When finally binding it with her Lasso of Truth, she discovers that there is a man inside the creature and Ethan received a brief vision of how he was transformed into a brute force of destruction by Colonel Jonas.

Just before he was about to pass out and transform back, Damage crushed her into a building and escaped. Atop from a nearby rooftop, Col. Marie was observing how her weapon of mass destruction decimated entire Suicide Squad in less than three minutes and now that Waller has failed, she calls in Mr. Leash for a hunter squad.

Ethan tried to hitch a ride to get to New Orleans but got offered a job by a trucker named Jorge Hernandez, who then sends him to his cousin José in Louisiana. Little did they know then that Poison Ivy already invaded that plantation area and took its workers hostage, forcing Ethan to change into his other but even that was not enough.

He ended up taken down by Ivy but came back for her after recovering and faced an army of angry apes led by Gorilla Grodd. His recent rampage near Louisiana has also caught attention of Swamp Thing, who came visiting this runaway hero.

Meanwhile, Wonder Woman informs her friends in Justice League about her encounter with Damage, which seem to make Superman slightly curious and Batman decides to investigate further into its back-story to figure out who he is. Col. Jonas has been hunting his tail for some time to find out what is he planning to do next.

Damage – Out of Control

During events of "Dark Nights – Metal", Damage made his debut to lead a "New Age of Heroes" and later appeared in his own brand-new monthly ongoing series launched by DC Comics in 2018. Collecting first two action-packed stories from its second monthly run, "Out of Control" ran from issues #01-06 of the comic-book series.

It features writer Robert Venditti (Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps – Bottled Light, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps – Sinestro's Law). Artist Tony Daniel (Deathstroke – God Killer, Deathstroke – Gods of War) teamed up with fellow illustrators Cary Nord and Diogenes Neves for interior drawings as well as cover arts.

Going Brutal and Heavy

In attempt to introduce a Hulk-like character for DC Universe, Venditti pitted him against an extremely efficient version of Task Force X before setting a stand-off against Wonder Woman. Her fighting prowess and skills are put to test like never before and even possibly building a narrative to send Damage against members of Justice League.

Putting Poison Ivy into this mix was a little weird and Gorilla Grodd has literally served no great purpose whatsoever. Special appearance of Swamp Thing also seemed a bit forced and unnecessary for the story premise. More of Col. Jonas and her hired hunting party will most likely to be revealed in upcoming storyline "Scorched Earth".

The Flash – Rogues Revolution | Comics
Previously, while facing the villain Turbine in the Speed Force, The Flash is sucked into Timestream vortex and ends up on the middle of an arena in Gorilla City, where Gorilla Grodd was devouring his recently deceased fathers' brain after defeating him in a mortal combat for the title of the new king. Though, elders of Gorilla City believes The Flash to be a divine messenger because of his symbol of "The Light", Grodd wants to consume his brain to gain his power of speed and since Barry Allen cannot remember anything before he came here, he ends up being captive. With help from elders of Gorilla City, Flash is eventually freed from Gorilla Grodd's captivity and returns to Central City only to find out people are protesting against The Flash for killing off Barry Allen.

Thinking him as dead, Barry's girlfriend Patty Spivot files to Guatemala for solving the murder mystery of Claudio Mardon, brother of Weather Wizard. Patty is kidnapped and Flash believes Marco Mardon AKA Weather Wizard is responsible. Their fight reveals the identity of the killer to Marco and Flash races to save Patty but decides not to reveal the truth about him being alive. Captain Cold's sister Lisa Snart AKA Golden Glider assembles her own gang of Rogues by recruiting Heat Wave, Mirror Master and Weather Wizard one by one to exact revenge on her brother as well as scientist Darwin Elias. Being saved by Pied Piper and Trickster, Captain Cold joins Flash for a temporary team-up against their enemies but are they prepared to take King Grodd and his gorilla army?

The Flash – Move Forward | Comics
Forensic scientist Barry Allen asks his co-worker Patty Spivot out for a date to a Tech Conference at Central City that took him almost two years. As the environment was perfect for him and they were having a nice time, Barry suddenly gets to meet renowned researcher Dr. Darwin Elias. They were discussing about a model of monorail when a group of thugs broke into the exhibit by crushing down the ceiling of the building. While they were busy putting the crowd on sleep by gassing them, Barry soon turns into his alter ego of the fastest man alive; The Flash and starts taking out the thugs one by one. Seeing their mission jeopardized by the presence of the speedster, the thugs started fleeing and Barry gives them chase to the roof but one of them is captured by him.

Flash manages to catch one of the crooks and crash lands into the sewer after vibrating through buildings. He hands over a Portable Genome Re-Coder that the group was trying to steal to Dr. Elias and then reverts back to his civilian form. Patty tells Barry that they left a body and as they get to the scene, Barry recognizes him as his old friend Manuel Lago. Looking for an answer, he gets into investigation, trying to find out the connection between Manuel and the DNA Re-Coder, of which Iris West is seems pretty interested. Out of the blue, he discovers a very much alive Manuel in his apartment who tells him to keep up and Barry notices two other copies of Manuel chasing them. The gang of Manuel calls them Mob Rule and The Flash is after the link between his friend and the Mob.

The Flash – Rogue War | Comics

With two groups of Rogues of the Scarlet Speedster fighting each other, old nightmares return to haunt The Flash once again.

After years of fighting against The Flash, the group of villains calling themselves The Rogues has finally started to break up from within when some of them starts reforming by moving on and chose to go straight from that point. This didn't sit well with the rest like Captain Cold, Mirror Master and Weather Wizard, who stayed on their path.

Digger Harkness, the original Captain Boomerang got double crossed and killed during "Identity Crisis" fiasco earlier, many of his former peers have gathered to pay him respect for the last time. His long estranged son Owen Mercer took up his mantle and broke the coffin to reveal to everyone present that it was empty all along as F.B.I. has took the body.

Original Trickster, James Jesse now works for F.B.I. and now has the corpse of Boomerang to experiment on in an attempt to revive him for taking down his former teammates. After Kid Boomerang is taken in by Captain Cold and the remaining Rogues, he asked the team to help him find his father's corpse and Snart promised to do so.

Axel Walker AKA Trickster causes a city-wide havoc only for The Flash to intervene and take him to Iron Heights Prison but Mirror Master and Kid Boomerang sneaked him out before he could be interrogated by the speedster. Turns out, Tricksty actually went on to locate where they kept Digger's body under the cover of vandalizing the city.

The Flash – Rogue War | Comics

Reporter Linda Park gets a sudden visit from Zoom, the newest Reverse-Flash to inform her that he still knows about the secret identity of Wally West and he is not done with them yet. Hunter Zolomon then abducts the first Flash, Jay Garrick to power up a cosmic treadmill for his plan to make Wally a better hero by introducing more tragedy in his life.

Captain Cold then leads The Rogues break into F.B.I. headquarters looking for the body of the deceased Digger Harkness, so that his son Owen can properly bury him. Profiler Ashley Zolomon is kidnapped by Pied Piper on behalf of his superiors at F.B.I. to communicate with Digger when they "wake" him up but she refuses to cooperate with them.

As Snart and his gang was about to leave they came across James Jesse in his Trickster costume along with his reformed Rogues; Heat Wave, Magenta and Pied Piper standing on their way. A heated battle breaks in between the current and former Rogues in the middle of Central City that even caught the attention of the scarlet speedster as well.

As they try to kill each other, Wally West desperately tries to put a stop to this madness and The Top shows up to make matters worse. Now that his memories are restored, he decides to give back memories to the reformed Rogues to turn them back as they were.

Now that he is back at his villainous self just like everyone else, Jesse offers to Owen and Weather Wizard to take them to Digger's body to get back in. Finding Ashley with the corpse made them furious and goes for her life but Zoom arrives out of nowhere. He blasted the villains off before quickly moving his wife to safety.

The fastest man alive was having a hard time facing his enemies and things get rougher when Doctor Alchemy and Gorilla Grodd decide to join the party but Kid Flash reached out just in time to push Wally out of harm's way.

The Flash – Rogue War

Following the events of "The Secret of Barry Allen", DC Comics assigned the duo of writer Geoff Johns (Flash – Rebirth, Green Lantern – Rebirth) and artist Howard Porter (JLA – New World Order, JLA – Tower of Babel) for another storyline of Flash that collects issues #1/2, 212 and 218-225 from the second monthly ongoing titular comic-book series.

The storyline assembled a large number of Flash-villains caving into a conflict that started over their differences in perspective and ended up in all uniting against the fastest man alive, thanks to The Top who recently got his mind back. However, he was quickly sidelined from center stage and other villains' attempts to advance with their own agenda.

Battle of Rogues

In between the "Rogue War" arc of 2005, there is a Wonder Woman crossover in "Land of the Dead" that also features appearance of Wally West. This one actually served to bring back his arch-enemy Zoom into action again with help from Cheetah. They even formed a romantic relationship for a brief time when they teamed up against Diana and Wally.

Jay Garrick, Kid Flash and Professor Zoom rallies up to wrap the entire pointless clash between Rogues to each pursue their own plan. A past incident is revisited with familiar faces and the saga of Scarlet Speedster will continue in "Lightning In A Bottle" up next.
