Checkmate #6

Betrayal is the main theme of the final issue of the Checkmate mini-series. Talia al Ghul has been revealed, but Checkmate steps up to successfully prevent her from stealing the Heroes Network (although she's learned enough to keep Leviathan off their radar going forward). The Snowman's Ticket has also managed to turn back Mark Shaw who faces betrayal from within Leviathan as it's old queen returns to sit on its throne.

Mark Shaw has been defeated but Leviathan remains, and, as the Checkmate members discuss, it might be a far more dangerous organization than it ever was with a former hero running it. With Leviathan still very much a threat, it appears our heroes will be sticking around, which also apparently includes King whose true identity is finally revealed.
