the Twelve #4
June, 2008

Appearances:
Black Widow(Claire Voyant), Blue Blade(Roy Chambers), Captain Wonder(Professor Steve Jordan), Dynamic Man(Curt Cowan), Electro… Marvel of the Age!(robot), Fiery Mask(Dr. Jack Castle), Laughing Mask(Dennis Burton), Master Mind Excello(Earl Everett), Mister E.(Vince Jay), Phantom Reporter(Dick Jones), Rockman, the Witness(?), Colonel Dexter

Synopsis:
pg1-pg3pn2
Master Mind Excello explains to Col. Dexter that his senses are being overloaded by today’s noise. He has a bunch of money saved up in his name, and he’s bought a place. The Phantom Reporter leaves the conversation and checks on the Black Widow, then runs across two police officers that have arrived.
pg3pn3-pg4-FB: last night
The Laughing Mask stops a robbery at a liquor store by beating the crap out of the criminals.
pg5-pg7
Dennis admits that it was him at the liquor store last night, and the officers ask to register his guns. As they walk off, the officers tell the Phantom Reporter about another thing from last night; Simon Dexter was found torn to bits at his place, and they don’t have the slightest clue what happened. The officers leave while the Black Widow watches. Downstairs, the Blue Blade has a chat with Rockman.
pg8-pg11-FB
Rockman is happy in his underground kingdom, with his wife and daughter. But the ‘Evil One’ keeps attacking and causing problems, so Rockman goes to take care of it. However, this time the ‘Evil One’ collapses a tunnel and cuts Rockman off from his kingdom... he hasn’t seen it or his family since.
pg12-pg21
Blue Blade offers to make Rockman his showbiz partner, but Rockman says nothing. Later that night, a going away party is held for Master Mind Excello. Dynamic Man hauls in Electro and tries to start a fight, Phantom Reporter tries to pick up Black Widow, and Mister E. And the Witness tell each other that they’re both Jewish.

All in one day for the current stuff, day after last issue.

The ‘Evil One’ from Rockman’s FlashBack isn’t named, but it’s possible that it’s intended to be the Pixie King from USA COMICS 3/5. They’re both dressed in Nazi-esque clothing, and last issue’s Fiery Mask FlashBack utilized the villain from his first appearance. So it’s possible, but not stated. I’ll suggest a placement anyway, and if a future issue contradicts this I’ll happily reverse the suggestion. Also, Rockman's wife and daughter aren't named yet, and this is their first appearance.
