    The Nativity, Part 1 last edited by The_Kidd on 10/02/22 01:07AM View full history

    The new creative team of writer Mark Millar (SUPERMAN, THE FLASH) and artists Frank Quitely (JLA: EARTH 2) and Trevor Scott make their explosive debut with Part 1 of the 4-part "The Nativity."

    The Authority is in Southeast Asia taking down a president who ordered the slaughter of those who opposed him. The team leaves the president at the mercy of the locals he oppressed.

    After the incident in Southeast Asia, The Authority becomes the center of media attention. The various members visit with the media to justify their actions.

    Later, Jack Hawkosmoor visits Jenny Sparks' grave. The Doctor joins him and reveals that Jenny's energy has been transferred to a newborn child who will grow up to be the Spirit of the Twenty-first century. He also makes Jack aware that The Authority is not the only group out looking for the child.

    On The Carrier , the team is throwing another celebration party and various Wildstorm heroes are in attendance. Jack gets a call from the U.S. president warning The Authority not to interfere in United States affairs. Jack tells the president that The Authority protects the world, not just America and they pay allegiance to no one.

    In a U.S. intangible military command center called The Hangar, two technicians sit at a large computer console. They inform a Dr. Krigstein that they have located the code-name: Jenny Quantum in Singapore.

    At a hospital in Singapore, a group of S.P.B.s arrive looking for the child, Jenny Quantum. One member called Tank Man kills all the babies in the maternity ward to see which one is Jenny. But none of the babies survive and they realize Jenny is gone.

    The Doctor has Jenny cradled in his arms as he runs through the streets of Singapore desperately trying to summon a Door . The rest of the S.P.B.'s surround The Doctor and he's trapped.

    Ellis and Hitch are gone, welcome aboard the new creative team Mark Millar and Frank Quitely, and though they came with threads and a plot already schemed by Ellis, there's a new direction in the team indeed in this arc story (issues # 13 to 16)! Authority, now lead by Jack Hawksmoor, has decided that Earth shouldn't be hostage of dictators, war, genocides, that Authority, as an cosmic or space entity, should police these affairs, and believe me, this will stir things up, bringing all the heat o...

    pure Mark Millar's Bad-Assery 0

    Millar's Debut in the authority with Quitely it's nothing but Bad-ass, Jenny Sparks, my favorite character is now "rebooted" and now political issues and "World Guardian" role for our guys is taking it's toll... Lemme say, that this sh*t is getting more violent with every issue i read, which is amazing, that means that these guys stay trve when creating some fast-paced, crazy stuff.The Art... Well, not as good as hitch's but surely is interesting. Quitely does a fine job when drawing characters ...
