Michael Cray has been on quite the Justice League killing spree.
The Wild Storm, Warren Ellis and Jon Davis Hunt’s relaunch of the Wildstorm universe, spun out a solo book for Michael Cray a couple of months back. Cray, part of the new Wildstorm’s tangled web of spy services and world-dominating, alien-headed NGOs, immediately set to work on the most pressing task at hand: killing alternate, terrible versions of Justice League members.
It was always assumed that The Wild Stormwas taking place on an alternate Earth – setting the book apart from the most recent incarnation of the characters, which were firmly within the New 52. But it wasn’t until the end of Michael Cray#1, when a green-hooded Oliver Queen was seen hunting homeless people, that it was confirmed to be an awful parallel world.
In this exclusive preview of Michael Cray#3, Cray (the old Wildstorm’s Deathblow) gets his next assignment: Barry Allen. Here’s what DC has to say about the issue:
WILDSTORM: MICHAEL CRAY #3 Written by BRYAN HILL from a story by WARREN ELLIS Art by N.
