Section Eight were the world’s worst superhero team. Created by Six Pack, who had the power of being drunk, they appeared in the Hitman comic, from Garth Ennis and John McCrea. Never hitting the high sales, they managed to crawl to a very respectable sixty issues and were both shockingly silly, savage, scandalous and touching in equal measure.
After years, and under much fan pressure, the series was finally collected in full. And the main character Hitman returned in an about of time adventure with the Justice League.
But of Six Pack, they were no more. Killed in the line of battle, saving the world.
Until today. In the back of Convergence: Harley Quinn #2. A new Section Eight short story ahead of the book’s launch in June.
Where we see that Dogwelder, or at least something resembling him, is back. His power? If you don’t recall, he used a blowtorch to weld dogs to people.
That doesn’t seem to have changed.
But we do get to see some potential new recruits…
And their powers?
That seems about right. Perfect for Section Eight. That’s of Dogwelder doesn’t… you know.
He does. Spoilers.
