Stellar #2

Issue #2 features Stellar squaring off against her old friends while intercutting the battle and its aftermath with flashbacks to Stellar's past and how, as children, they were chosen and turned into weapons for a higher purpose by a fascist government with their own agenda.

Although at first it looks like Stellar's old pals are after revenge or justice, it turns out they merely want to return her to the only place in the universe she doesn't wish to go: Home.

While slowly revealing its secrets, Stellar #2 continues to impress. The wasteland which her friends return Stellar to is hardly uninhabited, but the giant monster is far from the group's biggest problem. It seems the most unstable member of the old gang, long though dead, is in fact alive and (from what little we can gleam here) has some disturbing plans for his old friends.

Based on their power set, an insane member of this group definitely presents a problem for our heroine. Just who is Zenith, and what events have led to this reckoning? Worth a look.
