Wildstorm Gets Into Bed With The DC Universe With WildCATS #1

Bleeding Cool has been telling you how DC Comics will be integrating the Wildstorm characters further into the DC Universe. We've looked at a new Stormwatch taking over the Justice League Watchtower, Zealot from WildCATS getting her sword back from Batman's Angel Breaker, Jack Hawksmoor kicking off City Boy, Midnighter & Apollo returning for Dark Crisis #7 next month, and now a new WildCATS #1 – with a new acronym,Wild Crisis Aversion Tactical Squad/ Even as a Crisis is actually taking place. So, not very successful with their first mission.

So the HALO building is now in Star City, rather than Gotham,. to get out of Batman and Bruce Wayne's face. If only they knew. We also have the return of Clark's Bar.

In the Wildstorm Universe, Clark's Bar was staffed by the Golden Age Superman in disguise. Not so much now. But we do get an integration of the DCeased world into the whole Mish-Mash.

With Cole Cash, Grifter, accused of the murder of all manner of DC Comics villains. That's always the best way to get integrated to a universe, just kill everyone you can and you'll n=make all the friends and enemies you'll ever need. Talking of which..
