Titans – The Lazarus Contract | Comics

One of the most legendary members of Titans, Wally West came back from void of worlds and Deathstroke is eyeing for his Speed Force!

Years ago, Grant Wilson AKA Ravager took it upon himself to take out the original Teen Titans with his augmented powers given by H.I.V.E. He manages to take down the whole team but his heart finally gave up when he was about to deliver the final blow to Robin.

Lilith senses what really went up with him and Kid Flash tries to stabilize his heart that is burning up with a CPR to no avail. Thus, Deathstroke lost his son and after comforting his dying son, Slade blames the Titans for this and swears vengeance on them. For years, he couldn't forgive them and was always looking for an opportunity to hurt them.

On present day, Slade wakes up in a hospital with his old friend Major Wintergreen sitting beside him as the former has just gone through a successful eye surgery after a recent incident that blinded him. Wintergreen updates him on his children Jericho and Rose while reminding that Grant is still dead because Slade kept calling his name in his sleep.

Meanwhile Arsenal, Donna Troy, Wally West, Nightwing, Omen and Tempest were fighting a bunch of goons that they thought to be working for H.I.V.E. One of them confesses that they were hired to deliver a message by a person named "Lazarus" and then the rest of the Titans realize that The Flash went missing among them.

Wally discovers himself strapped to a machine as a voice asks his name, which he surprisingly answers to. He realizes that his captor is none other than Deathstroke, The Terminator and he proposes to Wally that if he helps Slade save his son by tapping into Speed-Force and going back in time, he will quit being Deathstroke forever.

Despite having the chance of saving many from Slade by agreeing, Wally is not willing to take chances that can mess-up timeline of reality once again. As he refuses to take his deal, Slade then reveals his back-up plan in case of his lack of will to comply. Wally sees a captured Kid Flash, who is the Wally West of Prime Earth, now in Slade's custody.

Back on the Titans Tower of Manhattan, Wally's teammates Arsenal and Tempest tries hard to locate him with no result. After trying to talk with Grayson, Lilith senses that even though he knows what's going on and what it means by "Lazarus", he's still lying to them.

At Titans Tower of San Francisco, while training with Beast Boy, Jackson Hyde and Starfire, Raven expresses her concern about Kid Flash when he didn't show up in time. Robin then points out that he is not the only speedster who's gone missing.

Damian Wayne faces Nightwing about the recent disappearance of the two Wally West of their teams and his disrespectful behavior towards Grayson agitated the remaining team members into taking a stance. After a little banter among them, they eventually all come to the conclusion that they should face Slade Wilson together for answers.

Deathstroke then offers Kid Flash the same deal he offered to The Flash and convinces him to help him save his son to redeem himself and as they travel through time, Slade manages to steal the power of Speed-Force from Wally for himself.

"The Lazarus Contract" is mainly a huge nod to the 1984 storyline "New Teen Titans – The Judas Contract" by Marv Wolfman (Convergence – New Teen Titans, Crisis on Infinite Earths) and George Pérez (Infinity Gauntlet, Inhumans), which is adapted into a direct-to-video animated superhero movie of the same name in 2017.

The original story that inspired "The Lazarus Contract" was about Deathstroke's debut on the pages of New Teen Titans monthly ongoing series and taking on an unfulfilled contract of his son Grant Wilson with H.I.V.E. Here, the conflict with the Titans also involved the father-son duo of the revamped timeline of Prime Earth.

G. I. Joe | Comics

In exchange for money, power and the chance to hurt people the man recruits skilled manpower in his group and also dubs himself as Cobra Commander to rule his league with an iron hand. Aside from his regular force of Cobra Vipers and Cobra Troopers, they enlist many top assassins of the world to their cause such as the ruthless assassin Baroness and ninja operative Storm Shadow, henchman Destro, explosives expert Firefly and master of disguise Zartan.

When the Cobra decides to finally come out of their hiding after years of preparation against the system, they kidnapped the renowned nuclear physicist Dr. Adele Burkhart and at that moment, the U. S. government assigned a special group under General Flagg’s command who are trained to response at the threat at hand known only as the G. I. Joe to rescue her.

Along with many other potential Joes, Duke, Scarlett, Snake-Eyes, Hawk, Stalker, Roadblock, Flint and Lady Jaye regularly engages with Cobra and other everyday terrorist threats worldwide to neutralize it before it can hurt people and keep the others safe. But as the forces of good prepares themselves to battle against the vile Cobra, the evil also makes his sinister plan to wipe out the existing peace from the planet.
