In the Wildstorm universe, the WildC.A.T.s. are the Earth’s original super-team. Previously, assembled as Team One, they have gone through multiple incarnations. In their different versions, two members have remained providing the team leadership in times of crisis: Spartan and Mister Majestic.

Let’s list five reasons why Mister Majestic is the team’s natural leader and five reasons why Spartan is their original leader.

10. JOHN COLT LED THE ORIGINAL TEAM ONE

In Team One: WildC.A.T.s. (1995), the U.S. government recruits John Colt, Mister Majestic, Regiment, Mason, Think Tank, Isaiah King and Slay as Team One. Their objective is to fight Daemonites as Unidentified Life-Forms (ULFs). During their first mission, Colt leads an untrained Team One against Helspont and his cult. Disastrously, they fail to stop the launch of a missile silo on New York City. Though Colt failed in his leadership, he remained the team’s leader when WildC.A.T.s. assembled.

9. ORIGINALLY, MISTER MAJESTIC WAS A NOBLE WARRIOR

In Team One: WildC.A.T.s. (1995), the U.S. government recruits Kherubim warriors Mister Majestic and John Colt, who would be resurrected after his death as Spartan. Originally, the government recruits Mister Majestic because he is a superhero. As a noble Kherubim warrior he believes in helping people and saving lives. Though he is also a warrior who lives by a code.

8. SPARTAN BECAME THE LEADER OF THE WILDC.A.T.s.

When the Kherubim-Daemonite war erupted, Spartan assembled the WildC.A.T.s. In WildC.A.T.s.: Covert Action Teams (1992) #1, Spartan led the team in an explosive issue against the Cabal. As a synthoid created from John Colt, Spartan was the team’s logical choice to lead on covert missions. Though he continued to doubt his legitimacy over his android nature.

7. MISTER MAJESTIC HELPS FAMILY AND FRIENDS

In WildC.A.T.s: Covert Action Teams (1994) #11, Savant recruits Mister Majestic to the WildC.A.T.s. When the team is attacked by Troika, Savant travels to the Arctic. There, at Mister Majestic’s energy barrier, she asks to meet him to help Zealot. In order to help his friend Zealot and his daughter Savant, Mister Majestic joins the team after some hesitation about his past failures.

6. SPARTAN’S PAST ROMANCES CONFLICT HIM

Because Spartan has gone through multiple upgrades, he has trouble understanding human emotion. In Gang War, the original WildC.A.T.s. return to Earth. There, they find that Mister Majestic has become the Earth-team’s leader. Also, Spartan has to deal with his identity and finding out who he really is.

5. MISTER MAJESTIC FOLLOWS A WARRIOR CODE

In Gang War, Mister Majestic emerges as the team’s leader. At the start of WildC.A.T.s: Covert Action Teams #28, Spartan refuses to accompany Ladytron and Condition Red to the local bar. In fact, we learn his warrior code prevents him from engaging in sexual activity. In World’s End, we see that circumstances can allow him to seek companionship in order to continue the Kheran race.

4. SPARTAN’S BIO-ANDROID BODY IS MORE INTELLIGENT

Certainly, as a synthoid, Spartan possesses a highly advanced bio-android body. Among his many abilities is technopathy. In WildC.A.T.s: Covert Action Teams #6, Spartan is able to use his android mind to reconstruct a fight from heat signatures left by the combatants. Later, he uses repurposed tehnology to invent HALO cars that run on infinite battery. Visit  Wildstorm Universe ’97 (1996) #1 for the source book file on his powers.

3. MISTER MAJESTIC IS MORE POWERFUL

Powerfully, Mister Majestic is the WildC.A.T.s.’ most powerful member. Indeed, he has tussled with Captain Atom, Helspont and even Electric Blue Superman. In Gang War, the poster boy incinerates Kaizen and Tao with his eyebeams with a kill count of two villIains and six zombots.

2. SPARTAN USES LETHAL VIOLENCE AS THE LAST RESORT

Perhaps, one of Spartan’s greatest quality is his logical mind and his ability to debate difficult questions. In Captain Atom: Armageddon, the WildC.A.T.s. and the Authority debate over whether to kill Captain Atom. Since he comes from a parallel universe, their computer simulations have determined that his nuclear powers can start a chain reaction that will destroy the Wildstorm universe. But Spartan cautions the Authority over taking any lethal action without additional information.

1. MISTER MAJESTIC SOLVES CRISES

Really, Mister Majestic is the WildC.A.T.s.’ natural leader. When Captain Atom arrived in the Wildstorm universe, he looked to Mister Majestic for help and understanding. In the last issue, Mister Majestic may not have saved the universe, but his timely arrival on the Carrier saved Captain Atom from the Authority.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


Critically, Captain Atom: Armageddon #8 showed why The Authority’s brutality doomed the Wildstorm Universe. In dictatorial style, the Authority is willing to do whatever it takes to end the threat of Captain Atom. However, it may already be too late. Indeed, their violence will cause Captain Atom to blow up the Wildstorm Universe in the last issue.

The comic is excellent for your collection. You will definitely love Camuncoli’s five panel layout and the emphasis on explosive action. This is the comic to own in order to build your single issue collection.

This product has no reviews.

Overall, this graphic novel was great.
