Thank you for the kind words and the glowing review. We're really proud of highlighting some important elements of Guy Gardner's backstory. A year under the dome, without powers, can do strange things to people. Issue #2 has nearly everything I've ever wanted to do with a DC Comic. I hope you'll stick around.

 This is sort of depicted in AGE OF HEROES #3 out this week. I also don't want to spoil the events in DARKSTAR & THE WINTER GUARD #3, but generally, I think the Winter Guard would win, and here is why.

Ursa Major, while not the strongest, is an exceptional fighter. He is weak against fliers, but can stand toe to toe with the best of them. He literally fights like an animal.

Red Guardian is a powerhouse - and armed with his new Vibranium shield - he is pretty 'badass'.

Darkstar could dispatch the enemies quickly sending them straight into the Darkforce -- like the previous Darkstars did with Igor Drenkov. Remember, in the past, a Darkstar took down several of the X-Men by herself.

Crimson Dynamo is as well armed and has a level of military training that Iron Man does not. The Mark 14 armor that is depicted on the above cover is fairly powerful -- armed with deadly Dire Wraith technology.

Yes, Doc Spectrum, Speed Demon, and Hyperion are powerful, but they are also quite arrogant. Hyperion, in particular, has been shown to loss control in battle. I think they'll lose more out of a lack of strong teamwork. Hyperion would be better on his own.

Can we rename the People's Protectorate to simply the Protectorate to reflect the name change in DARKSTAR & THE WINTER GUARD #1?

 While it's cool to see Marvel stories that aren't specifically set in New York city, but I would've liked to have seen a little more of a unique gimmick for the Winter Guard to make it stand apart from other tiles on the shelves.

Thanks for the review. We address the central 'gimmick' for the series twice in the first issue without trying to hit readers over the head with it. (We also address to a FAR greater degree in the Hulk: Winter Guard one-shot from December) -- all of the members of the Winter Guard are replaceable  -- they are the red shirts of the Marvel Universe - replacable at a moment's notice. When you enlist in the Winter Guard, you serve in one of four roles until you retire, die, quit, or are fired. You'll see this in the exchange between Dmitiri and Vazhin -- and earlier with Galina & Anton.

The back-up story was added just for fun -- to give readers an opportunity to learn more about the original Darkstar.
