When Janet Dibny was murdered by super-villains her husband Hank Dibny, the Elongated Ant, stopped at nothing to track down her killers. Tragically Hank’s final confrontation with the super-powered murderers resulted in the destruction of several city blocks, including an elementary school. Shortly after this catastrophe the Superhuman Registration Act was passed and all heroes were required by law to surrender their secret identities to the government. Many refused and, led by Super Soldier, formed an underground resistance. S.H.E.I.L.D was torn from the grasp of rogue agent Bruce Wayne and placed under the control of Iron Lantern. The Emerald Avenger now found himself with the unpleasant task of leading the heroes who agreed to register in a war against Super Soldier’s resistance. And so, the Identity War began and the Amalgam Universe was never the same again…
This was my first effort to feature genuine characters from the actual Amalgam Comics event. They are Super Soldier, Iron Lantern, Spider-Boy, Amazon, Speed Demon, Dark Claw, The Human Lantern, Ben “Rocky” Grimm AKA The Four Armed Thing, Reed “Prof” Richards and Sue “Ace” Storm. It’s cobbled together from Michael Turner’s variant cover for Civil War #1, Mike Wieringo, Karl Kesel and Gary Martin’s work from Spider-Boy #1, Salvador Larocca and Al Milgrom’s art from Speed Demon #1 and Dave Gibbon’s cover for The Amalgam Age of Comics: The DC Collection. Super Soldier’s toupee is from Michael Turner’s cover for Identity Crisis #1.
This is amazing.
