During the reboot of their entire line, DC incorporated a select few titles from their former WildStorm publishing imprint into the new 52. These characters and worlds which used to be separate from the DCU were now a big part of it! The one title you should be looking for is Stormwatch. The team first appeared in 1993 and has continued to be a powerhouse under both WildStorm and DC banners. Written by Paul Cornell and Peter Milligan, this comic shows the workings of a super-powered team who will not take “No” for an answer.
Put together by team leader Martian Manhunter, the Stormwatch team does not deal with small causes like detaining armed robbers or preventing cities from being destroyed. They leave those petty tasks for the Justice League. Stormwatch deals in galactic crises which threaten the Earth and everybody who inhabits it.
This team has enough firepower to destroy entire planets, let alone save them. Along with Martian Manhunter, the team consists of Apollo, Midnighter, Jack Hawksmoor, The Engineer, and Adam One. The best part is that they don’t even like each other! All they want to do is purge the galaxy of any evil threat.
Stormwatch Volume 1: The Dark Side is available at all Big B locations. After picking it up, you’re going to add it to your pull list….right?
