Exclusive Preview: STORMWATCH #18

Midnighter and Apollo continue their fight against Engineer. Will Zealot's presence help?

In the last issue or STORMWATCH, Engineer made her plans clear. Her attack separated the team and set up the appearance of another new character in the New 52. We also saw Zealot join Midnighter and Apollo. Will Zealot's presence be enough to help them win the fight?

DC Comics has given us an exclusive preview for the next issue, on sale Wednesday, March 6.

In the background, it looks like the Space Needle got Borgified. Yes I made that word up, it's something we geeks do!

This is more evidence of why Peter Milligan doesn't work well in Mainstream comics. His Constantine was excellent, but things like Stormwatch? They're just lacking something. I don't know what it is but they're lacking some sort of heart. Some cohesion.

Mind you, there's some great expectations which go with Stormwatch. Ellis created something fantastic right when Wildstorm was on the cusp of transforming into something other than 90's pouch and gun machines.

Glad this is finally over.... not sure if Starlin will be any better, but at least none of this will be canon in a month.

Edited to add - And they aren't seriously putting forth the idea that Midnighter isn't gay, are they? Even SUGGESTING Midnighter may not be gay is rather problematic. You do not de-gay one of the most iconic and prominent gay characters ever created, you just don't, even if it's to make him bi.

So the entire series has basically been Stormwatch fighting its own members one by one...

Stormwatch has been one of the more solid books put out by DC. Glad to see some previews and reviews on this book. It's not being treated well enough by DC. Tons of potential with no interaction with the rest of the mainstream DCU. Who cares about Etrigen and some random horn headed Red Lantern. Lets see other non Wild Storm characters in this book.

Glad to see one Wildstorm book doing well, and that they added another core Wildtorm character to the New 52. Lately if it contains Wildstorm or not a Bat book it gets canceled for another Bat book.

Zealot is a great character and reading the issues in Deathstroke where Liefeld made her act like "the babe" to Slade's "come gimme some sugar" act was rather depressing. I really wish they can put out a decent WildC.A.T.S. book sooner or later with her and some of the Wildstorm characters that got their books axed. I think the idea of mixing Wildstorm with some classic DC was a winner when Stormwatch came out with Martian Manhunter in it, maybe thay could do the same with OMAC taking over Maul's role in the Wildcats book.

And, am i missing something or wasn't Midnighter the more openly gay of the duo? Reading back issues it looked like he was the one actively pursuing Apollo's affection

I think Midnighter might be bi-sexual in the New52 universe or Zealot might be Transgendered?
