The Terrifics have broken up and their newfound freedom might be the worst thing that has ever happened to them.
The team has officially disbanded and all of its members have gone their separate ways.
With the threat of Java still looming, Mr. Terrific must design a new core for his T-Sphere to track the stolen one through the multiverse. Holt’s journey is going to take him to multiple Earths where he discovers that Java is systematically murdering his doppelgängers across the multiverse.
Plastic Man finds himself trying to rebuild a relationship with his ex and discovering that his son is hiding a powerful secret of his own. One that he blames his father for bestowing on him.
Rex and Sapphire are trying to adjust to a life outside of Stagg and his plans. Unfortunately, when you’ve spent the bulk of your career as an adventurer and superhero, it’s hard to find work when you have no powers.
Phantom Girl has a unique set of problems that she has to deal with, the least of which is the party that she is being forced to attend. The bulk of her problems are going to come later when it is revealed to her exactly what the party is for and what is going to be expected of her as a princess.
When Holt finally tracks down Java on an alternate Earth, he finds a link to his own past and a new threat from the villain.
There is a lot going on in this issue and Lemire does a great job of making the characters come to life on the page. Each one of them is dealing with the fallout of their lives in different ways and it is interesting to see how they deal with those moments in the context of the people they are and the team that they were.
Bogdanovic’s art is always amazing, but this issue features some great panels and character expressions.
