BEFORE WILDC.A.T.s. DISBANDED, SPARTAN UPGRADED TO A NEW BODY
During Gang War, Spartan discovered Kaizen Gamorra possessed his original Yohn Kohl body. After Mister Majestic incinerated Kaizen with his eye-beams, Spartan took up the John Colt personality again. However, this body was destroyed.
Around the time Zealot was killed, the WildC.A.T.s. disbanded. In that period, Spartan upgraded to a new body without the John Colt personality. Also, Emp sought to ascend to the spiritual plane. Spartan assisted his death.
AFTER HE INHERITS HALO CORPORATION, HE BECOMES JACK MARLOWE
Later, Spartan finds out that Emp actually gave him his company, Halo Corporation. Dissatisfied with superheroing and in order to improve the world, Spartan accepts. And Spartan takes the identity of Jack Marlowe. Soon, Grifter, Noir and Void joined Halo Corporation.
With Void’s teleportation powers, the team discovered Otherspace. Later, Noir found the extra dimension contained limitless energy. In WildC.A.T.s. (2001) #26, Noir plans to kill Marlowe and create Halo batteries from Otherspace. Fortunately, Noir is killed by Marlowe. Later, Marlowe uses Noir’s lab to invent Halo cars.
In Captain Atom: Armageddon, he worked to protect the Wildstorm Universe from destruction. At Image Comics, Supreme and his alternate versions protect the supremacy. Really, similarities between Supreme and Thought Robot suggest his story may have created the Image Universe. Let’s explain.
Like DC’s Limbo, the Supremacy is a form of Image Limbo. At DC’s Limbo dead or forgotten characters exist. At Image’s Limbo, Supreme’s amnesia as well as revisions in his continuity are associated with alternate versions. In addition, it is a form of Limbo for Supreme who was once forgotten on Earth. In many respects, Supreme is a story like Thought Robot.

SUPREMIUM CAN WARP REALITY
In The Story Of The Year, Alan Moore gives a revamped origin of Supreme. Originally, Supreme gained super powers after exposure to Supremium while an infant. Incredibly, he developed the typical powers of a Superman analogue: super strength, super speed, super vision, senses, flight, intelligence.
Importantly, we learnt that Supremium can warp reality. In the case of his arch-enemy, Darius Dax, his experiments with Supremium created a temporal paradox causing him to time travel. In addition, it may have caused Dax’s dimensional transport to Daxia upon death. In fact, it is a form of Limbo containing the possible versions of Dax.
BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL, SUPREME MET JACK KIRBY
In Final Crisis: Superman Beyond #2, Thought Robot breaks the Fourth Wall. This is the literary process where a character is aware of being a creation in a work of literature. Here, Thought Robot is either aware of the Presence, the Writer or the reader.
Similarly, Supreme can break the Fourth Wall. In Supreme: The Return, Supreme meets with the Writer, Jack Kirby. While investigating ideas invading Earth, Supreme meets with the Monarch. And he finds out the Monarch is the Writer who tells him Supreme can achieve virtually anything. In essence, he has limitless power.
Today we talk about a character that is lesser known. Supreme was created by Rob Liefeld for Image Comics as a violent and angry Superman analogue. He was taken over by Alan Moore who created him as a “tribute to [the] Silver Age Superman”. (Supreme) A bit on his origin. Ethan Crane, the son […]

DURING CRISES, THE DC MULTIVERSE ACTIVATES ITS DEFENSE SYSTEM
In Justice League Incarnate #4, the true purpose of Superman is revealed. During crisis events, the DC multiverse is threatened. In order to protect its survival, the DC multiverse activates its immune system: superheroes. Importantly, Frank Martin at ScreenRant argues Superman represents the archetype of the ultimate hero.
In fact, Final Crisis reveals Superman and his analogues are the guardians of the Bleed. In Superman, The Greatest Story, I argue that the Bleed is a living 4D space that connects the DC multiverse’s shared history. During the final battle, the Supermen of the Multiverse arrive on New Earth in order to battle Mandrakk, the Dark Monitor. Let’s look at Superman and analogues in DC and Image that protect the Bleed and its analogues.
The Bleed. DC Comics.

To begin, Darkseid threatened the DC multiverse with the Anti-Life Equation. With Nil, Monitrix Zillo Valla chose Superman and the champions of the DC multiverse. Importantly, their mission was to stop Mandrakk. In order to succeed, Zillo Valla promised the Man of Steel the Ultramenstruum.
Dangerously, Mandrakk bottled this Bleed droplet. In fact, the Bleed was the only substance capable to save a critical Lois Lane. Heroically, Superman merged with Ultraman and became Thought Robot. Successfully, the Doomsday Weapon defeated Mandrakk in Nil and retrieved the Bleed.
MISTER MAJESTIC (DC COMICS)
During Captain Atom: Armageddon, a new peril faced the Wildstorm Universe. As matter of fact, Captain Atom had accidentally quantum jumped in the Wildstorm Universe. Now, his power threatened the existence of Wildstorm. And his presence triggered conflict with the heroes, namely in Captain Atom vs Mister Majestic. According to Majestic, Captain Atom would explode like a time bomb and Majestic needed to stop him
To protect the Bleed, the Authority kidnapped a near-critical Captain Atom aboard the Carrier. Moreover, they intended to kill him to prevent the Captain from blowing up the universe. When Mister Majestic attempted to stop the Authority, he was frozen in time by the Doctor. In the end, Void solved the problem by allowing the destruction of Wildstorm. In addition, she teleported Captain Atom back into his universe.
At Image Comics, Alan Moore revamped Supreme as a Superman analogue in 1999. In The Story Of The Year, Supreme returns to Earth after exile in space. Strangely, he notices reality flickering between the 1940s and the 1990s. There, he meets Supreme duplicates such as Original Supreme, Sister Supreme and Superion.
Soon, they travel to the Supremacy. Here, he learns it is a limbo realm where every possible version of Supreme lives. Similarly to the Bleed, it acts to create revisions in Supreme continuity. Moreover, it constantly erases or replaces friends and foes. Similarly, the Supreme duplicates act as guardians of the Supremacy. Indeed, they help Supreme and the Image Universe in moments of need.
DURING THE ’60s, KHERUBIM SAUL BAXTER STOPS THE FIRST DAEMONITE ATTACK SINCE 1906
In ‘Team One: WildC.A.T.s’ (1995) #1, is the first Daemonite sighting since the 1900s. In the 1960s, Saul Baxter is a secretive defense contractor and mastermind. Secretly, he is a Kherubim and has the ability to generate blasts of mental energy. Recently, he is developing the first ballistic submarine. Suddenly, a soldier storms into his office and tells him that the submarine is under attack. Quickly, he runs out of his office and into the base. There, he finds the attacker killing several soldiers. Strangely, he recognizes the man as the first Daemonite he has encountered since 1906.
To hide his mental energy blast, Saul fires a blowtorch at the Daemonite reducing it to a corpse. When he has stopped the attack, Saul realizes that more Daemonites may arise. Soon, he meets with a fellow Kherubim. In fact, she works as a covert operative for the U.S. military as Lucy Blaise. Secretively, Saul wants to enlist a team of Kherubim heroes: Lucy’s lover and the anti-Communist John Colt, Mason and the superhero Mister Majestic. To this end, their objective is to fight Daemonites under the cover of Unidentified Life Forms (U.L.F.).

DAEMONITE LORD HELSPONT RECRUITS SLAUGHTERHOUSE SMITH ON A MISSION TO NUKE NEW YORK CITY
In ‘Team One: WildC.A.T.s’ (1995) #2, Daemonite Lord Helspont is on a mission to nuke New York City. Previously, Helspont recruited a Kherubim named Slaughterhouse Smith. As the term of the negotiations, Helspont names Smith as part of his Cabal. Sinisterly, he promises the Kherubim will rule the world.
Soon, Helspont and his Cabal attack Camp Williams, a nuclear missile silo in North Dakota. In their mission, they must detonate nuclear missiles on New York City. Angrily, Slaughterhouse protests he has a family and a home in the city. In response, Slaughterhouse’s men point their guns at him. Sternly, Helspont convinces Slaughterhouse to work for his cause.

IN TEAM ONE’S FIRST MISSION, THE MISTER MAJESTIC/HELSPONT RIVALRY BEGINS
In Team One’s first mission, the heroes are unprepared and undertrained. Decisively, John Colt leads Team One into battle. In a slugfest, Mister Majestic engages Helspont. In fact, it appears they are evenly matched. However, the heroes are soon overwhelmed by the sheer number of Daemonites. Nevertheless, King manages to reach the nuclear missile which has been set for launch.
Since he is untrained, he has no idea how to deactivate it. Begrudingly, Regiment goes to find the silo leaving King without cover. Seemingly swarmed by Daemonites, John orders Mister Majestic to blast them to cover King. Though John is in the way, Majestic blasts the Daemonites. At the end, the lights go out and the outcome is uncertain.

When Flash attempts to reach him, Epoch says his advanced technology makes him slow down to a crawl. In 65,000,000 B.C., at the time of the dinosaurs’ extinction, Epoch encounters a soliton that enhances his armor and enables him to steal the Chrono-Cube as power source.
The JLA end up in 33 AD. Meanwhile, Superman and Green Lantern scan the Earth for the power source and discover it buried in limestone. Then, the JLA activate the drive mechanism with Green Lantern’s power ring focusing all their willpower. They end up transported to the Wildstorm Universe.

During the battle, Mister Majestic agrees with Void to help return the Justice League home otherwise both universes will be destroyed.

In order for the entities in voidspace to help, Green Lantern must teach them how to create light constructs. Using her technology, Void is able “to punch a hole through voidspace. A bridge.”1

The JLA and WildC.A.T.s. team-up to take down Epoch’s citadel. Superman tells Maul his plan. He tells Maul to grow large enough to take down the citadel. In fact, to account for Maul’s mindlessness, a burst of electricity to the right motor neurons should return Maul to his normal size within 30 seconds. Maul succeeds. Since the WildC.A.T.s. are not in Epoch’s database, Superman sends them to take him down. Meanwhile, the JLA are working on the Chrono-Cube. Eventually, Epoch is defeated.

DURING “GANG WAR”, MISTER MAJESTIC LEADS THE WILDC.A.T.s. STRANDED ON EARTH
In “WildC.A.T.s: Gang War”, the space WildC.A.T.s. team is returning from their homeworld Khera, while Mister Majestic leads the WildC.A.T.s. on Earth.

Issue #28 starts with the WildC.A.T.s.’ war on crime on the streets of New York.
Mister Majestic sees it as the beginning of a disaster. Mister Majestic harbors more lethal methods and incinerates the Zombots with his eye-beams. Ladytron (Maxine) and Condition Red (Max) then decide to go to Max’s local superhero bar called Clark’s Bar. Ladytron sees it as a date though Condition Red disagrees. At the bar, Max notices Vic Lazarr, a supervillain, has deposited a suitcase in the gentleman’s room. Before he can disarm it, it blows up the bar. Max ends up at the hospital.
At the end of “Wildstorm Rising,” the WildC.A.T.s. flew a Daemonite ship into space in order to stop from exploding. Believing them dead, Mister Majestic and Savant set up a new team. They were transported on Khera where they found the Kherubims had won the Kherubim/Daemonite war. Deeply dissatisfied with Khera’s political affairs, they returned for Earth. In ‘WildC.A.T.s: Covert Actions Teams’ (1997) #29, returning to Earth, Mister Majestic attempted to recruit the members onto his team to fight the gang war, which had also recruited Team One. However, the WildC.A.T.s. original team declined and departed for Gamorra to aid Grifter.
The team consisted of Spartan, Void, Maul, Warblade and Zealot. Two members, Emp and Voodoo, quit the team. A day later, Ladytron checks on Condition Red, but she finds out from the doctor that Condition Red checked himself out of the hospital and quit the team. On Gamorra, the WildC.A.T.s. is under heavy fire. As Spartan manages the controls, they notice an armed troop carrier with the Stormwatch insignia and realize the U.N. has been called in. As they repel the boarders, their craft crashes lower and lower into the ocean. On the shore, Hunter-Killey Daimyo reports to Kaizen Gamorra that his enemies have been downed. Then Void teleports the WildC.A.T.s. on the island.
REUNITED, THE WILDC.A.T.s. ARE ON THE HUNT FOR TAO AT HALO CORPORATIONS

After Spartan reminds Zealot about his life with her as John Colt, declares his love for her and shares a kiss with her. Then, it is an all-out assault on the Mercs, Overtkill and the supervillain hostage Vic Lazarr.
In WildC.A.T.s: Covert Action Teams’ (1997) #32, during an exchange of fire, Grifter learns that Deathtrap wasn’t responsible for the attack on Clark’s Bar. Ladytron spots Vic Lazarr and goes in pursuit. After interrogating Lazarr, the heroes and villains realize they have been duped. Mister Majestic realizes the one responsible is Tao. His plan was to orchestrate surgical attacks on New York’s underworld, the attack on H.A.R.M.’s funeral in order to bring everyone under his command. Clark’s Bar’s bombing was meant to escalate the gang war between the WildC.A.T.s. and the criminal underworld.

CAPTAIN ATOM IN COMICS
‘Space Adventures’ (1960) #33, titled “Introducing Captain Adam” marks the first appearance of Captain Atom in DC continuity. The issue tells the origin story of Captain Atom: Allen Adam’s body was vaporized after he was launched in an experimental rocket. However, he survived and was able to re-form his body by using the power of the atom. Donning a special body suit to protect from radiation, he became Captain Atom.
The comic was written by Joe Gill and penciled by Steve Ditko.
In ‘Captain Atom: Armageddon’ (2006) #1, Captain Atom lands in a parallel universe in the DC multiverse: the Wildstorm Universe to presage the Worldstorm. The issue opens with Captain Atom flying the Composite Superman/Batman robot into space in order to bomb a Kryptonite asteroid.
On the way, Captain Atom remembers being placed in another cockpit with the Dilustel metal set to explode on an atomic bomb. Captain Atom had the choice of either remaining in a military prison for life or doing the experiment. Captain Atom remained in the capsule for twenty-three years.
Despite his misgivings, Captain Atom’s sense of duty drove him to become a superhero. This illustrates the fact that patriotism is part of every hard working person and that the nation always benefits from offering each person, even ex-cons a chance at redemption. Captain Atom states: “I’ve got a job to do.”
The Composite Superman/Batman robot blows up with the Kryptonite asteroid. Captain Atom awakens startled back in Tokyo with Superman and Batman. Then, he is sent to another universe like a comet through the sky. He arrives in New York City as Nikola Hanssen being created into Void by a man opening a box containing Void.
SHOWDOWN AT THE WHITE HOUSE: CAPTAIN ATOM VS MISTER MAJESTIC!
In ‘Captain Atom: Armageddon’ #3, Captain Atom visits the White House after a fight and a conversation with Mister Majestic at Mount Rushmore. Startled by the Wildstorm Universe, Captain Atom struggles to understand the brutality of its superheroes and the fear people have of them. He wants to return to his parallel universe in the DC multiverse. In some sense, it is the paranoia of contact with parallel universes that seems to question of our very individuality.
Is Captain Atom experiencing this paranoia, as the people react to the presence among them of a superhero with fundamentally different physical dimensions. At the White House, Captain Atom faces a nuclear strike which he evades. He speaks to the President and tells him he is a military man. Captain Atom says he needs the President’s help to return but the President states he fears and answers to the superheroes.
As he leaves the White House, Captain Atom is intercepted by Majestic. They have another scuffle. At the end of the battle, with no decisive winner, Majestic reveals to Captain Atom: The Nightmare Equation. That is, Captain Atom’s presence is going to lead to the Worldstorm of a parallel universe of the DC multiverse: the annihilation of the Wildstorm Universe.
Captain Atom goes to the Pentagon in order to confirm Mister Majestic’s computer simulations. He taps into the Pentagon’s data bank and is able to confirm Mister Majestic’s Nightmare Equation: the Worldstorm. As Captain Atom returns to the Washington Monument damaged during his second battle with Mister Majestic and now being repaired by Mister Majestic’s nanobots, the WILDC.A.T.s come on the scene.
SHOWDOWN AT THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT: CAPTAIN ATOM VS THE WILDC.A.T.s.!
In ‘Captain Atom: Armageddon’ #4, Captain Atom is intercepted by the WILDC.A.T.s. at the Washington Monument. Its members are: Maul, Voodoo, Warblade and Zealot. As they face their foe, the WILDC.A.T.s play a game of who can think of the least number of movies so that he/she can take on Captain Atom. Reverting to his smaller more intelligent form, Maul wins the game.
Maul increases his mass and punches Captain Atom through the ground into the underground subway. Looking at his files, Captain Atom identifies his weakness and decreases Maul’s mass; then, he punches him back to the surface. Next, Voodoo uses her control of magnetism and telepathy to “to tell [his blood] to rip your veins to pieces.”1 Captain Atom uses the data he has downloaded from the Pentagon to overload Voodoo’s telepathy.
Warblade goes on the offensive and quickly slices Captain Atom with his sharp blades. Captain Atom responds by blasting him. Finally, Zealot fights Captain Atom. Captain Atom decides to reason with Zealot but she does not listen. Then, he decides to end things. He blasts Zealot. However, Zealot blocks it with her sword and attacks him. She proves to be the superior fighter and soon has Captain Atom on the ground.
As Zealot is about to kill Captain Atom, he remembers a gas main in the underground subway. Captain Atom blasts it creating an explosion that knocks out Zealot. Grifter and Nikola Hanssen arrive on the scene. As Grifter changes into costume and is about to take on Captain Atom, a door takes Captain Atom. He is teleported to the moon and a mysterious woman greets him. She is impressed by his super powers and invites Captain Atom to show him about “real power.”1
THE WORLDSTORM IS AVERTED! … OR IS IT?
In ‘Captain Atom: Armageddon’ #6, Captain Atom finally has help to avert the Worldstorm. Angie by orders of Hawksmoor, befriends Captain Atom and acquaints him with the Authority’s brutal methods to deal with tyranny and crime on Earth. Mister Majestic aboard The Carrier with Hawksmoor and the Doctor doubts the former’s plan to deal with the Worldstorm.
Angie the Engineer reports to Hawksmoor on their mission. She receives orders from him to proceed with removing the Void signature from Captain Atom. Angie asks for Captain Atom’s permission to solve his “problem.”2 He remembers Mister Majestic’s advice to not trust anyone, but decides to not heed it. The Engineer attaches herself to Captain Atom’s body and deletes the Void signature at the atomic level.
Back at the WILDC.A.T.s.’ base Grifter finds out the truth from Jeremy. Jeremy tells Grifter that Void and Captain Atom both have the Void signature. However, Void has “enough to tip the balance.”2 In fact, Void and Captain Atom should be in the same vicinity, or else in this parallel universe of the DC multiverse, Worldstorm might occur in the Widlstorm Universe. Then, Grifter realizes she is missing. Nikola closes her eyes then she finds herself at the place where she got her Void powers.
Captain Atom finds her there and says he came back to the place because he felt a connection to the place. He remarks maybe she did too. Captain Atom feels relieved meeting her since “you’re not wearing a cape, you’re not shooting laser beams from your eyes or turning your fingers into razors.”2 Captain Atom feeling she is an average human touches her left shoulder. Nikola says “Wait! Don’t…”3 Then an explosion. Nikola turns into Void.
‘ARMAGEDDON’: THE WORLDSTORM IS HERE! VOID RESCUES CAPTAIN ATOM
In ‘Captain Atom: Armageddon’ #9, Apollo and Midnighter bring Captain Atom by force onboard the Carrier. It is a fight between the Authority and Captain Atom, highlighting the sort of physical conflict resulting from the presence of different dimensional beings from parallel universes in the DC multiverse. Captain Atom attempts to reason with Hawksmoor.
However, Hawksmoor notes that if Captain Atom is killed the Worldstorm is started, and if Captain Atom is not killed the Worldstorm still starts later. But, Hawksmoor explains that according to the Doctor’s time travel to the future, the Wildstorm Universe does survive the death of Captain Atom. Apollo, eager to get revenge on Captain Atom for giving him a near fatal dose of solar energy in a nuclear reactor he created, attacks Captain Atom with laser beams. The Worldstorm is here!
The Worldstorm has started. Hawksmoor asks Apollo to absorb Captain Atom’s nuclear energy before the chain reaction is critical, however, he is not sure if Apollo can survive it. Apollo attempts to absorb the energy only to be incinerated. Midnighter laments the death of the man he loves. He attacks and gets incinerated by Captain Atom. Captain Atom states that the Authority can no longer stop the process. Hawksmoor orders the Doctor to free Mister Majestic from his time freeze. Jenny the spirit of the 21st century arrives and also gets incinerated.
Before the Worldstorm starts, Nikola finally accepts her Void persona and her WILDC.A.T.s. connection to the new dead Grifter. When the Worldstorm starts, Void races to the Bleed to help Captain Atom in order “to become whole again.”3 She arrives on the Carrier and does the impossible. Void removes the Void signature from Captain Atom and states: “Finally. I’m whole.”3 Then she says: “Nathaniel… Go home.”3 As Captain Atom is transported back to his parallel Earth in the DC multiverse, he states: “Thank you.”3 Then, Void asks everyone to watch a new Wildstorm Universe end, while a new one begins.
