Synopsis for "The Call"

In Northern Ireland, the new Jack O'Lantern saves a girl trapped in a flaming bus but doubts his abilities as a hero. He is encouraged by a priest and a mysterious old woman who exhorts him to go to the water before vanishing.

In New York City, Christine is tortured by her father Dr. Mist who caoxes her to see visions of the future with a magical pendant. She sees Cataclysm coming. The man who would become this monster is in Peru, driven by a quest to transform into this ancient demon. He kills several villagers, dives into a well, and reemerges as the beast.

In Hong Kong, Claw briefly battles Silver Dragon for the lives of some young girls he has purchased. He is knocked into a fountain and disappears. The same elderly woman is by his side.

In the Grand Canyon, two boys find a derelict Red Tornado lying motionless on the ground. When they attempt to pick him up, he silently rises in the air and creaks away into storm clouds.

In the swamps of Louisiana, Golem is pursued by the police for a murder he didn't commit. For a third time, the woman appears and watches as he is shot by a cannon and disappears into the water.

Mist leaves his daughter and convenes with the surviving Leymen. All of the others give up their membership in the brotherhood, telling Mist to find replacements among the superhero community. He begins a mystic ritual in front of a standing pool and Cataclysm materializes to drown him.

Leymen New Earth 0001

The new Leymen are called by the Earth

Meridian Mychaels wraps up her self-defense class at the gym. She goes to the pool and is transported alongside the other heroes to Mist's study. Jack O'Lantern saves Mist from drowning but as Claw appears, he is in a violent rage trying to stop his foe.



Notes

  • In October of 1994, all of the existing mainstream DC Comics titles released a special "0" issue to coincide with the Zero Hour crossover event. The purpose of the "0" issue was to reveal a previously unknown aspect of the title character's background. DC Titles under the Vertigo imprint were largely unaffected by Zero Hour and thus, no "0" issue specials were published for them.
  • Although they are not called this by name, this team and title update the Global Guardians concept of the 1970s.

Trivia

  • No trivia.
