Deathstroke and black canary are trapped in the ghost zone! To escape the horror, the Deathstroke Inc. team must confront their own ghosts…and deal with a deadly offer from the returning Libra!

Deathstroke and Black Canary are in the Ghost Zone heading to Prometheus’ Crooked House.

They are pawns of T.R.U.S.T. (Transparent Researchers United for Strategy and Technology), but there is more to them there seems.

Looks like Black Canary have to go their separate ways on painful personal  journeys…

…that may not be real, but have impact and emotional resonance (here, here and here).

They end that experience dramatically, and end up in…

…TRUST’s mansion instead of Prometheus’ Crooked House…

…confronted by DC’s new Libra who revealed her identity in an effort…

…recruit Deathstroke and Black Canary to TRUST?!

It is not the Secret Society of Super-Villains, but it’s mission statement is more practical than the Legion of Doom’s; where the LoD sought power, TRUST seeks wealth.

Deathstroke has heard enough and executes both the Calculator and Libra…

…to give TRUST, who are fearful of something or someone looming, what they want…

…a new leader!

The Pulse:

Another fun yet action-packed, dark issue. Decent art. I am remain intrigued. 7.5 out of 10.
