For most, there are things in this issue that will not make any sense as it crosses over into the Millenium event that was taking place at DC during the time and as such, it does not further anything of note that has happened previously in the book, instead focusing on the Manhunters and the events of the big crossover. So it is that Roy Thomas does a couple of things, one being the big reveal that Todd’s girlfriend, the woman who has gotten closer to Obsidian than anyone else other than his sister turns out to be a Manhunter herself and on top of that, has claimed the mantle of Harlequin. This new Harlequin wants Obsidian to join her and the Manhunters and he, of course, will have none of it. So it is that he flees and heads back to the team who are wondering just where it is that Grundy went and are then sent on a mission to find the Floronic Man. There are a lot of frayed tempers on the team at the moment and all for various reasons, Obsidian’s quite apparent, Jade being heckled over her handling of Grundy, Skyman who doesn’t seem to like being questioned and so forth. Returning to the title is Vince Argondezzi and Tony DeZuniga and they do a good job at making it look good and while it is a little slow during the first half, it picks up during the latter and the two make it look good as the team heads into battle. As it is, the team does not do very well, the Floronic Man and the woman who accompanies him proving to be quite the challenge for them. Entering the battle after all seems lost is Solomon Grundy and it is enough to turn the tide, though Jade has to stop him before he goes too far and that could prove to be dangerous down the line should Grundy hold a grudge against her. Altogether, this was an okay issue with a few dramatic bits between the characters which might play into events further down the line yet as a whole, crossing over with Millenium was detrimental to it being anything else.
