The secret organization known as CLOVER has assembled a rag-tag band of miscreant “heroes” for one specific purpose: find the bad guys where they are, determine how much of a threat they might be and eliminate if necessary. A plot to assassinate a high-ranking officer in the military of a foreign nation sends the team into action, but could letting him die be so bad? Do they follow orders or their own judgment and what are the consequences if they fail? And it looks like one of the team is playing both sides!

DONNA TROY

Written by Gail Simone and Amanda Conner
Art by Amanda Conner

She was just the girl next door living with her adoptive parents and being one of the most popular girls at Fawcett City High School. Then, her uncle (the Greek God Hermes) shows up, unlocks her true potential and sends her world into an out-of-control spiral! What is this all about? Why now? How is she ever going to explain this to anyone? As if it wasn’t enough of a struggle just to be “normal” in high school and now she’s able to lift cars over her head and…oh yeah, fly! As if that wasn’t crazy enough, it looks like some of her “cousins” have taken up residence in her neighborhood and they’re going to her school! And it looks like they don’t have anything nice planned for her or the “mortals.”

INVINCIBLE

Written by Greg Pak
Art by Ryan Ottley

Mark Grayson is dead…long live Invincible! Well, sort of dead. Not really dead. Okay, not dead, but he must let the world think that he is until he can find a way to control the raging spirit…no that’s not right, either. Look, Mark did die in that hit on his acrobat family in the circus. But CLOVER recovered his body because, as it turns out, he’s only half-human and not actually a Grayson (add that the growing list of things his “brother” Nightwing doesn’t know about). But now he’s all super-powered and leading the double-life as CLOVER’s resident errand boy/part-time Guardian of the Galaxy/sometimes college student/kinda terrible boyfriend…yeah, just a normal life, right?

Art by Jae Lee

The Crime Logistics Oversight and Vantage Evaluation Resources organization is here to protect the world…or is it? Nick Fury Jr. may say he has the world’s best interest in mind, but his methods leave more than a little to be desired. Manipulating politicians, threatening anyone who questions him and creating new super-powered beings to prepare for a war he believes is coming is just the tip of the iceberg. Maria Hill sees the same dangers Fury does, but can he be trusted to truly know what’s best for all? Even Fury’s closest confidant, Phil Coulson, has begun to doubt him. But there’s no time to deal with that now, there are bigger problems. The former operative, Winter Soldier, is back on their radar and he’s threatening the stability of entire nations. Especially after he tried to kill the President of the United States! Project: Captain Atom initiated…

Art by Ben Templesmith and Jae Lee

Vampires are real. They are everywhere. You won’t see them, but they’ll see you. At any moment you can become their prey. Until now they’ve been content to stay in the shadows, but with the appearance of these “super beings,” they are making themselves known. But there is something else in the darkness. A protector. His mother was bitten while pregnant with him and the powers of darkness passed on as she died. He has their strength, but not their weakness to sunlight or silver. He was lost and obsessed with vengeance until the one calling himself Fate intervened. Now, a town has been destroyed and all evidence points to a larger vampire conspiracy taking shape. When Blade is invited to investigate by a mysterious note, he senses a trap when he sees who it’s from: his father!

Up next: Nick Duke!
