• Threads of the entire DC Universe collide in this new series set in the early days of The New 52 from writer Justin Jordan (The Strange Talents of Luther Strode).
• As Superman emerges, so too does the world’s counter measures against him and his kind!
• Dinah Lance, Amanda Waller, Steve Trevor, John Lynch, Alex Fairchild, Cole Cash, Slade Wilson are Team 7 – and their story will change everything you know about The New 52!
I’m on the fence here! First off I don’t give a fuck about these Wildstorm people! Amanda Waller is too skinny! Dinah has bad hair, Slade and Steve Trevor are being written by a writer who can give a better take than their current custodians. So I don’t know. I’ll try the zero issue to see! Oh and finally those are some ugly ass costumes!
It never occurred to me until this picture that it would be very awkward to do normal stuff like hug people when your body’s shaped like that. Also, butt floss and butt-thrusting-out in a tender father/daughter moment? o_O
“Team 7 was officially the seventh incarnation of a group of military specialists gathered from various government forces. (Recently a Team Zero has been revealed, making Team 7 the group’s eighth incarnation.)
Team 7 took its orders from Miles Craven, director of International Operations. Craven wanted his own army of superhumans, and therefore dropped a chemical known as the “Gen-factor” on the members of Team 7 during a (suicide) mission. When they awoke from their Gen-factor induced comas, Team 7 was told that the enemy had dropped a chemical weapon on them. As a result of the Gen-factor, Team 7 (except for Michael Cray) started to develop superhuman powers. It would be years before Cray himself would develop similar abilities. Team 7 member Cole Cash distrusted Craven and suspected that he was behind the experiment. Several members of Team 7 were unable to cope with their new powers and went mad or committed suicide. At least one had to be shot during a subsequent mission, as he was basking in the glory of his ability to make people kill themselves. As a test, Craven dropped a nuclear weapon on Team 7. The members survived through co-operation and went into hiding.”
Alexander Fairchild by Steven Butler
The only Team 7 member with no prior military experience, Alexander Fairchild was an Ivy League graduate and Rhodes scholar who entered the C.I.A. upon completion of his doctorate. Though recruited to Team 7 largely for his language skills, Fairchild was an able warrior nonetheless, having completed numerous field assignments under combat conditions during his C.I.A. stint.
