In this installment, Frankenstein hitches a ride to mortal danger, while Terry McGinnis is already under the watchful eye of Mr. Terrific and Brother Eye!
Things take a turn for this worse in this issue, wherein Frankenstein has it out with Father Time. He does not want to work for SHADE any longer--his days of battling monsters for Uncle Sam are over. However... Father Time knows that Frank cannot resist a mystery, and he has a doozy.
Namely, what killed StormWatch?
To find out, he'll have to voyage to deep space--and the only way to do that is in a vessel constructed by the Atom, Dr. Ray Palmer. Frank, Palmer and Agent Amythyst (former Princess of Gemworld) will go, by way of the Phantom Zone and its uncanny ability to compress space. Shrunk down to microscopic size, they expect nobody will notice them--but the Zone's strange energies wreck that plan, and a very powerful denizen of the Zone awaits...
Elsewhere, Terry McGinnis is five years too later to prevent the creation of Brother Eye. In that time, however, the satellite went offline. If Terry and his onboard helper ALFRED are lucky, they can mount a mission into TerrifiTech and disable it permanently. What he doesn't know is that Terry "Mr. Terrific" Holt knows Terry is out there and what he looks like. Batman Beyond could be walking into a deathtrap.
Fast paced and enjoyable, this installment delivers another step along the road to answering several mysteries. What happened to StormWatch? Who destroyed Gemworld? How did Prime Earth and Earth 2 come into conflict and why is Grifter important to King Faraday?
Still early days yet but the mysteries just keep building. And one of them is seemingly opened by Lois Lane in this issue, too: what happened to Red Robin, and why did he fake his own death?
