Freshly Defrosted, The Twelve’s Journey Continues

 

After being frozen for decades by the Nazis, the heroic Mystery Men of the World War II era are back in action! Acclaimed writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Chris Weston, bring this team back in The Twelve #2 (of 12) with a fantastic cover by superstar Kaare Andrews. With Captain Wonder at the helm, the team is faced with living in a world where everyone they knew and loved are no longer around, as they wake up to a new world! After surrendering their secret identities and registering with the Initiative, the American government tries to ease these heroes back into a world where the definition of heroism may have changed.

 

Kevin Powers, of ComicsBulletin.com, says, "The Twelve is most certainly J. Michael Straczynski at his finest. It’s sophisticated yet fun, sad yet extraordinary, mysterious and brilliant and has the potential to sail out of the park."

 

Their secret identities exposed, the Twelve must adapt to a more dangerous world-one in which some of them do not have super powers! Will these heroes be accepted in the post-Civil War world? Are their days as heroes numbered? These questions and more are answered in The Twelve #2 (of 12)!
