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. Mister Majestic must lead an inexperienced team against supervillain gangs in New York City. The WildC.A.T.s. team consists of: Mister Majestic, Tao, Savant, Ladytron and Condition Red. 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.

MISTER MAJESTIC KILL COUNT: 6 ZOMBOTS.

BACK FROM THE “WILDSTORM RISING,” THE WILDC.A.T.s. ARE QUITTING

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.

IN CRISES

THE KHERUBIM/DAEMONITE WAR

You may have seen the TV show in the ’90s: Spartan, Grifter, Zealot, Warblade and Co. participate in a war between two alien races. In Season 1 Episode 6, Majestyk awakens from a stasis pod. He immediately assumes command of the WildC.A.T.s. to Spartan’s reluctance. He intends to oppose Helspont who seeks an orb that can conquer the universe.

Retro Rerun

VOLUME 1 COLLECTS THE KHERUBIM/DAEMONITE WAR

In ‘WildC.A.T.s’ (1992) #1, we are introduced to the Wild Covert Action Teams. AP Photo/Image Comics

Volume 1 collects the Kherubim/Daemonite war. Volume 1 collects the following issues:

  • WildC.A.T.S Covert Action Teams – Collects # 1-4
  • A Gathering of Eagles – Collects # 10-13
  • Homecoming – Collects # 21-27
  • Gang War – Collects # 28-34

Despite being an Image series, the series suffered from frequent delays. After September, the frequency would decrease and it would take at least two years in order to get on a monthly schedule.

The Alan Moore run suffered from the lack of a consistent artist and missed deadlines. Though it added some significant contribution to the mythos.

THE KHERUBIM

The Kherubim are human in appearance though they are stronger, more durable and virtually immortal. The downside is that Kheran are almost infertile and rarely produce offspring. However, Kheran do have the ability to produce offspring with other species, such as the existence of Kheran/human hybrids. Some Kheran are known are Lords and are more powerful, with abilities to manipulate energy and other psionic abilities.

Shapers are a subspecies of Kherans. They are shapeshifters and they are able to change their bodies into a mercury-like substance. The Titans are part of Kherubim society and are purple in appearance. They can increase or decrease their mass. They have large yellow horns on their backs. When they change their mass, they lose intelligence.

THE DAEMONITES

The Daemonites are reptilians from the planet Daemon that are capable of possessing host bodies. Daemonites need to possess someone in order to survive on a planet other than their native planet such as Earth. When a Daemonite possesses someone he has access to all the abilities the host has.

The Daemonite can change the host into its Daemonite form for a short period of time. Daemonites are near immortal. They have the ability to regenerate from injuries. The Daemonites are often drawn with sharp claws, sharp teeth and hunched. Though Daemonite Lords like Helspont look different.

Millennia ago the Kherans came into contact with the Daemonites and a war erupted between both species. This war would last several centuries. A small group of Kherans and Daemonites would crashland on Earth and would inspire humanity with tales of gods, angels, demons and monsters. Their conflict would continue till the end of the 20th century, while in space the Kherans would go on to defeat the Daemonites. Kherans imposed heavy indemnities on the Daemonites and their society went bankrupt trying to pay them off. Khera allowed Daemonites to migrate to the more prosperous planet, but all Daemonites on Khera had to live in ghettos.

INTRO

You may have seen the TV show in the ’90s: Spartan, Grifter, Zealot, Warblade and Co. participate in a war between two alien races. The show was successful though it ended after Season 1. WILDC.A.T.s. was even made in a Super Nintendo video game.

‘W.I.L.D.C.A.T.s.’ (1992) #1 SHOOK THE COMIC BOOK INDUSTRY

In ‘WildC.A.T.s’ (1992) #1, we are introduced to the Wild Covert Action Teams. AP Photo/Image Comics

Wildstorm was the dream of two childhood friends, artist Jim Lee and writer Brandon Choi. Early on, Lee worked for Marvel on projects like “Punisher War Journal” and “Uncanny X-Men.” His art got him notoriety and recognition.

Eventually, Lee quit Marvel and originally set up Homage Studio which would become “Wildstorm.” Then, Lee recruited his childhood friend, Brandon Choi and they would release their first comic “WildC.A.T’s: Covert Action Teams #1.”

WHO ARE THE W.I.L.D.C.A.T.s.?

Lee and Choi imagined the WildC.A.T.s. as a different brand of superheroes. The premise of the first issue was the millennial war between two alien races: the Kherubim and the Daemonites. Unfortunately, the war was transported to Earth and both races formed teams and organizations in order to eliminate each other.

The leader of the team was a Kherubim synthoid named Spartan. He recruited other Kherubim warriors such as Lord Emp, the Coda Warrior Zealot, the Kherubim Half Breed Maul, and Warblade who could change his body into weapons.

 

We are introduced to the concept of the Kherubim and Daemonites, two ancient alien races who have been at war for millennium and brought that war to earth thousands of years before. The Kherubim were immortal, very powerful, and human in appearance who breed with humans over the years creating super powered beings known as half-breeds in the process. The Daemonites are body snatchers by nature and inhabit key beings of power, such as their current leader Helspont who inhabits a powerful alien body. So by 1992 these two races had used Earth as a battleground and the war was ramping back up again. 

-“The WildCats: From The Beginning To The Wildstorm,” TC

VOLUME I

The first issues involved the WildC.A.T.s. fighting the threat of the Cabal. Four issues in, the WildC.A.T.s. had to face Rob Liefield’s Youngblood over the Daemonites having taken control of Vice President Dan Quayle. A modified Youngblood team took on Supreme in ‘Supreme’ (1992) #1.

The first crossover of the series was with Mark Silvestri’s “Cyber Force.” Two important characters were going to be introduced during Chris Claremont’s “the Gathering of Eagles”, who were Mister Majestic, the Superman analog, and Savant, Zealot’s sister. Alan Moore would take over the growing “Wildstorm” universe with issue #21.

In 'W.I.L.D.C.A.T.s.' (1994) #7, the W.I.L.D.C.A.T.s. meet Cyberforce for the first time.

In the ’90s, though he was sought after, comic writer Alan Moore refused to work for DC and Marvel and remained secretive. Instead, he decided to work for growing comic companies and small-scale projects.

He found his way to Liefeld’s Extreme Studios to work on Supreme and Youngblood but also released the still unfinished 1963 through Image. Moore’s run on WildC.A.T’s could have been one of the most satisfying super hero stories I’ve ever read but was marred by replacement artist after replacement artist.

In the “Homecoming” storyline, the WildC.A.T.s. are stranded on Khera while Mister Majestic and Savant are on Earth and believe them dead. During the run, Mister Majestic becomes the leader of the WildC.A.T.s. on Earth.

DC Day: In “Coup D’Etat”, The Authority Finally Takes Over The U.S. Government Because Of Their Conspiracy To Conquer The Bleed

IN GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY

TAO, A FORMER WILDC.a.t.s. AGENT, TRICKS THE U.S. GOVERNMENT INTO TRAVELING TO THE BLEED LEADING TO AN ACCIDENT

In ‘Coup D’Etat: Sleeper’ (2004) #1, the U.S. government follows the conspiracy of Tao in order to conquer the Bleed. Following a mission by Agent Carver and Misery at a secret U.S. base, the U.S. government retrieves a device. In reality, it was an elaborate set-up by Tao, a former WILDC.A.T.s. who orchestrated the covert operation.

Realizing that the device can actually help them travel the Bleed, they send a probe into space. However, per Tao’s knowledge, the device “was powered by a tiny black hole.”1 Upon reaching the Bleed, the black hole became unstable and the probe exploded. The accident tore “open an enormous hole in the Bleed” and destroyed a shiftship.1

THE AUTHORITY TAKES OVER THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AFTER IT CAN’T CONTAIN THE DISASTER IN FLORIDA

In Florida, the Authority are on the scene. Hawksmoor sends telepathic readings of a ship breaching the Bleed. Swift thinks it’s a meteor shower. However, Apollo realizes that it’s not a meteor shower, it’s giants. Swift identifies that it’s a shiftship six times bigger than the Carrier with hundreds of hull breaches.

Its crew are giants falling to the Earth like meteors. Midnighter says they have about 10 minutes until the shiftship lands on Earth, a collision worse than the meteor that extinguished the dinosaurs. The Doctor cannot affect the shiftship with his magic so he stretches out time. The Authority uses doors to evacuate the population of Florida. But that is not enough. The ship hits Florida and millions die.

Florida has been turned into an archipelago with Key West. Aboard the Carrier, the Engineer informs Hawksmoor that the Giants are an extra-dimensional race, from a universe billions older than the Wildstorm universe. They are known as the Vigil and they are the first species to use the Bleed. They collect information and observe the multiverse.

The shiftship was headed for the Gathering, when “all new knowledge is collected to their planet.”1 The Vigil have never gone to war and it is unclear what their response to the catastrophe would be. Later at night, the Authority makes an announcement on a jumbotron, Hawksmoor declares the Authority are going to take over the U.S. government.

SPARTAN WARNS THE AUTHORITY AS TO THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS

In ‘Coup D’Etat: Wildcats’ (2004) #1, former WILDC.a.t.s. members intervene in the U.S. government conspiracy. Members of the HALO Corporation, Jack Marlowe (Spartan), Edwin Dolby and Grifter are concerned over recent events. The wheelchair-bound Grifter recruits Edwin Dolby for a mission. Together, they head to a former supervillain, now weapons dealer codenamed Warmaker. Grifter first attempts to woo Warmaker in order to retrieve a weapon. Sensing that there is no money involved, but rather an exchange, Warmaker shoots Grifter.

Grifter evades from his wheelchair, and shoots Warmaker in the head, killing him. Then, he calls Dolby and together they head behind the bookcase in Warmaker’s study. They find a massive negative gamma particle. Grifter tells Jack his plan: He plans to have Jack teleport the WMD into the Bleed to trigger a singularity and send the Authority to a parallel universe. Jack does not agree to Grifter’s plan and says the Authority’s conspiracy is likely temporary. Later, Jack appears on the Authority’s carrier in hologram form. They have an argument and taking the form of Spartan, he warns them of the consequences of their actions.

WITH CONTROL OF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT, THE AUTHORITY FACES AN ALIEN INVASION BY THE VIGIL

In ‘Coup D’Etat: The Authority’ (2004) #1, the Authority have to contend with the consequences of the government conspiracy. The Authority have taken over the U.S. government: NORAD is under their control, they have disabled nuclear weapons, the NAVY has been de-commissioned, the Engineer disabled the Air Force and the Army. The Authority has dismantled the U.S. armed forces in six hours. World leaders are in disarray and officially endorse the Authority.

Suddenly, the Vigil invade Earth. Hawksmoor orders the Carrier to start teleporting people out of Times Square similarly to the procedure in Florida. Hawksmoor, Apollo and Engineer head to Times Square, the Doctor heads to the White House and Midnighter has to negotiate the President’s resignation. The Authority arrive in Times Square and do battle. Apollo flies through the Vigil “faster than a speeding bullet.”2 Hawksmoor negotiates the Vigil’s surrender. Finally, the whole team is teleported aboard the Carrier with the President.

They are showing video footage of the President’s attempt to conquer the Bleed. The Vigil comment on humanity’s potential for destruction and state they have not engaged in combat in 500 Earth years. The Engineer informs the Vigil that the Authority downloaded 60% of their shiftship’s data before it was destroyed. Asked what can prevent humanity from being a threat to the multiverse, Apollo incinerates President Kent with his heat vision. The Vigil calls the Authority “savages.” Then, they depart for the Bleed.

Swift remarks that President Kent was actually manipulated by outside forces. The Engineer says she manipulated the footage to place guilt on President Kent in order to ensure that the Vigil would stop their invasion of Earth and leave. Swift questions the decision and states that the Authority never compromises. At night, Hawksmoor proclaims the Authority as the new U.S. government. His first order of the day is to suspend democratic elections. After the broadcast, Midnighter asks what they do next.

In ‘WildC.A.T.s’ (1992) #1, we are introduced to Spartan and the WildC.A.T.s which stands for Wild Covert Action Teams. The team consists of Spartan its leader, Ladytron, Zealot, Warblade, Voodoo, Maul, Grifter, Backlash and Nemesis. The team was put together in order to combat the threat of the Daemonites.

Read on!

In galactic history, there was a colossal conflict between two races, the monstrous Daemonites and the humanoid Kherubim. Two ships, one piloted by each of these races, crashed on Earth after a dogfight between the two, and the aliens attempted to integrate with the natives. In recent times, the Kheran Lord Emp formed a Covert Action Team to fight against Daemonite activities on Earth.

Early on, the WildC.A.T.s’ enemies were the Daemonite Lords Helspont and Hightower. They also have allies such as the Kherubim hero Mr. Majestic, Savant and Huntsman.

Spartan was born Yohn Kol, a Kherubim and a member of the Pantheon class on Khera. Yohn was trained as a warrior from the time of his birth. He was well respected as a war lord and the Spartan Guards were created in his honor.

Yohn’s ship crash landed on Earth during the war between the Kherubim and the Daemonites. To blend in, Yohn adopted the name John Colt and served the U.S. army as a super soldier. His superior Kherubim physiology did not grant him the super powers of Mr. Majestic, being mainly an above average human. Becoming a super soldier, Spartan eventually joined Team One.

During a missile attack by the Daemonite Helspont, John sacrificed himself by ordering Mr Majestic to use his laser vision on him and the Daemonites surrounding him. John apparently died in the effort.

John survived, however, thanks to the efforts of Emp. Emp copied Spartan’s personality and memories and downloaded it into Spartan’s bio-android body. In the 1990s, Emp would start the team known as the WildC.A.T.s with Spartan as its leader.
