Will (SPOILER)'s Death Have Consequences? Teen Titans #30 Preview

In Catalyst Prime #1, written by Gail Simone with art by Jose Luis, inks by Jonas Trinidade, colors by Michelle Madsen, and letters by Saida Temofonte, mysterious and seemingly indestructible Obsidian Men fall from space and attract the attention of Earth's heroes, exhibiting similar properties to the asteroid that ignited the Catalyst Prime universe and gave powers to its enhanced superheroes. These terrifying events are captured by new character Camila Canales, a young new media journalist who serves as the main point of view character for the audience in the series.

Catalyst Prime #1 ends as any super-mega-crossover event worth its salt does: with the shocking death of a hero, in this case Noble, the universe's flagship hero, who is cut down by one of the Obsidian Men after leaving the planet with what may be its epitaph.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
