The Human Target #5

The latest issue of The Human Target is by far the least linear of the series. While spending time with Ice, and preparing to meet the Martian Manhunter, Christopher Chance thinks back on his past and remembers the events of his childhood which put him on the path to becoming a Human Target and his training with a version of Saturn Girl who taught him not to hide his secrets but see into the minds of others as they probe his own.

What's obvious here is how quickly Chance and Ice have fallen for each other, as his few remaining days continue to slip away. However, that hasn't stopped him from pursuing one last mystery as the clues seem to be leading back to Ice's best-friend who may have used her feminine wiles on J'onn to help with her plan. Before the end we can see a reckoning for Chance and Ice adding another bittersweet layer to events.
