B43 was a US nuclear bomb, of which two thousand were made in the sixties, to be dropped from planes, with a 70 kiloton to one megaton worth of explosive power. And Lex Luthor echoing "The Rising". From the final page of the last issue, from this issue and the solicit for next month, Henry Bendix is creating a superpowered population to not just increase his own power base, but also to decrease the powers of others. Is that why Luthor is playing along with "The Rising"? And it's not just some new virility pharmaceutical concoction?
