The Human Target #2

The Human Target continues to surprise as the second issue introduces the dying Christopher Chance to the Justice League International's Ice in something of a femme fatale role who charms Chance into spending the day with her (using up one of his 11 remaining) while offering her help on the case and attempting to convince him that her best friend, despite strong motives, isn't responsible for the attempt on Lex Luthor's life.

Ice, rather than Fire, is an interesting choice for this role which seems far removed from her role within the JLI but still fits within the established character while offering something new. She mesmerizes Chance who notes both her coldness and the warmth of her charms. Chance accepts Ice's help, and a late reveal gives an interesting spin on their entire day together, but our dying hero can't help but speculate if he's already met his killer.
