Secret Six #7

Secret Six #7 is a bit of a Who's Who of the mystical and magical side of the DCU as we're introduced to a meeting of several of the most powerful members of this group including the Phantom Stranger, Deadman, Zatanna, Klarion, and others gathered together to discuss a mutual problem: Black Alice. The young woman's ability to tap into and temporarily steal their powers has not gone unnoticed, but the real trouble with how Alice operates is that it leaves each member of the collective weakened and in turn is causing a weakening in the mystical defenses that are keeping out a looming threat too powerful to fight. Their solution, however, won't sit well with the other members of the Secret Six.

While most of the issue centers around discussion about Black Alice, the rest of the characters are left to fend for themselves in a B-story involving Catman's attempts to try and forge the odd group into something approaching an actual team or family. His attempts aren't very successful, but the threat against one of their own might be just what this group needs to work together and bond as a team (even if it is a team that remains a shadow of its former pre-New 52 self). For fans.

[DC, $2.99]
