1992 began with a "Panic in the Sky" that saw the return of one of Superman's most dangerous foes - Brainiac. Brainac's quest to subjugate the Earth brought together nearly every active hero in the DC Universe and resulted in the death of Draaga, a minor, but critical character from the Superman mythos. Brainiac was not the only villain to make a comeback in early 1992. The Ventriloquist and Scarface also resurfaced to plague Batman in a three-part story-arc appropriately titled, "The Return of Scarface". This storyline took two relatively low-key villains and propelled them into the spotlight of notoriety shared by many of Batman's recurring adversaries. More significantly, this storyline also introduced the character of Renée Montoya, a detective for the Gotham City Police Department who becomes a longstanding supporting cast member in the Batverse and ultimately assumes the guise of the Question. Another critical story that took place in 1992 was the "Breakdowns" story-arc, a fifteen-chapter serial which ran through alternating issues of Justice League America and Justice League Europe. This storyline focused on the attempted assassination of League liaison Maxwell Lord and a fight with the otherwordly Extremists. Following this event, League member Elongated Man was featured in his own four-issue limited series that took him on a tour of Europe. 1992's Annuals comprised a theme event called "Eclipso: The Darkness Within" which pitted the major characters of the DC Universe against the menace of Eclipso. The former teen super-heroes, the Titans, had troubles of their own in 1992 as they were forced to confront a futuristic band of Team Titans and the powerful son of Donna Troy and Terry Long in "Total Chaos".
