IN READING GUIDES, LISTS, REVIEWS

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.

IN RELIGIOUS WARFARE

UNTRUSTING OF SUPERHUMANS, MAX FARADAY CAUSES THE RAPTURE

In the Wildstorm Universe, World’s End occurs after Armageddon. Due to the Reaper’s nuclear holocaust, the God-like Max Faraday intervenes. To this end, he causes the Rapture of billions of people from Earth. In reality, he teleports the survivors to St. Louis. There, their routine continues as they are unaware of Armageddon.

At St. Louis, Max is meeting with the WildC.A.T.s and Team 7. Sternly, he blames the disaster on superheroes. Too often, he says, their interference lead to greater threats. For his part, Max plans to remain neutral in the war till all superhumans are erased. When Max senses danger in the South Pacific, he realizes he must intervene.

WITH A REALITY-WARPING CLASH, TAO STEALS MAX’S GODHOOD

In the South Pacific, the terrorist named Tao has threatened Susanna Chaste, Max’s wife. In the nick of time, Max, the WildC.A.T.s and Team 7 teleport on the scene. There, they face Tao and his men. Arduously, the battle rages. Using their reality-warping powers, Max and Tao are matched. Then, Zealot and Kenesha teleport to Hawaii.

There, they enlist Majestic’s help. With the Nemesis Swords – forged in the fires of Creation – Mister Majestic turns the tides. Violently, he pierces Tao’s body. Brutally, Tao is defeated but he has an ace. Before he can be executed, Pit Bull and a goon are holding Max’s wife at gun point. Desperately, Max agrees to reveal the Creation Equation to Tao in order to save her. Dangerously, Tao steals Max’s godhood.

CHECK OUT THE STORY: In “Gang War”, Mister Majestic Becomes The Poster Boy Of The 1990s Leading An Ultra-Violent W.I.L.D.C.A.T.s. Against Friends And Foes Alike.

HAVING DIVIDED HIS POWER, MAX AND THE HEROES TRIUMPH

Later, the battle shifts to the Hollow Realm. Here, is the source of Creation. At the Hollow Realm, Tao plans to destroy then re-make the universe. First, he has locked the god-like heroes in prisons of their failed loves. Eventually, Void and Susanna Chaste free themselves. Soon, they confront Tao. In battle, the truth of Tao’s origin emerges. Originally, a test tube baby, he was grown and studied as an experiment. As a result, he grew without love.

Soon, the other heroes emerge. In fact, they tempt Tao with one attempt: to fix himself. Suddenly, Grifter appears and shoots Tao in the head. Then, the villain disappears but does not come back. Soon, Max and the heroes regain their near-full powers. With his faith in superheroes restored, Max tasks them to re-build Earth. In the meantime, he plan on transporting the survivors with Void’s help to the hollow realm. In one final act, Max restores the heroes’ 90s costumes with some alterations.
