The Wild Storm #17

John Lynch's trip down memory lane takes him to the most dangerous member of the Thunderbook project, although coming face-to-face with Rainmaker is nothing like what Lynch expects. Of all the dangerous human/alien hybrids Lynch has encountered, Rainmaker (originally the most dangerous) seems the most at peace with himself and the alien parasite that has driven the rest of Thunderbook crazy. As with the other members of Thunderbook, Lynch discovers Rainmaker has also passed on his genes implying another Gen13 character is part of the new Wild Storm universe.

The Wildstorm #17 also returns to Angela Spica pushing the limits of the technology that is a part of her and getting a different account from the Daemonites about her new friends who are actually aliens known as the Kherubim. While the conversation fails to sway Angela's loyalties to one side or the other of the warring aliens, it does provide foreshadowing of what is to come (including a looming authority, which I'm been waiting for since issue #1). Worth a look.
