Synopsis for "A Brief Tangent"

Two small-time crooks named Alan and Paul break into a storage unit and find a green paper lantern. They unwittingly open a dimensional portal to the parallel world of Earth-9. The Atom of that world steps out, displacing Alan into the other reality. The Justice League are called in to investigate when it is revealed that the storage unit is leased to Guy Gardner. Black Canary, John Stewart and Red Arrow answer the call. A fight breaks out and Red Arrow manages to subdue the Atom. John Stewart realizes that the lantern that brought the Atom to this world is something that Kyle Rayner came across a short time ago. He had asked Guy to hold it for him. John uses his ring in tandem with the paper lantern to open a dimensional portal and he returns the Atom to his native world, while simultaneously retrieving the crook Alan. What none of the League yet realize is that the Flash of Earth-9 has likewise left her home dimension and is now on Earth.

Synopsis for "Soup Kitchen"

Roy Harper volunteers to work out at a soup kitchen. A surly homeless man kicks a food tray out of his hand and runs off. Roy is angry and confused, so he gives chase. After nabbing the man, he comes to realize that this is Bromwell Stikk, a former super-villain known as Mister Twister, who once fought the original Teen Titans. The two make peace, and Stikk is happy knowing that somebody at least remembered who he was.

Notes

  • This issue shipped on December 19th, 2007.
  • Includes DC Nation editorial #92 by Dan DiDio. DiDio provides a holiday wish-list of the DC Universe.
  • Kyle Rayner first encountered the Green Lantern of Earth-9 in Ion #9-10. He had subsequently given that Green Lantern's Chinese paper lantern to Guy Gardner for safe keeping.
  • Mister Twister is the first villain that the Teen Titans ever fought and first appeared in Brave and the Bold (Volume 1) #54. Although Roy was (retroactively) a member of the team at that time, he was not present for the Titans initial battle with Mister Twister, which is why he doesn't immediately remember him. Roy was present however, years later when Mister Twister was the agent of the Gargoyle. The Gargoyle fought a reunited Titans in the "Survival" story-arc in Titans #15-16.
  • This story is reprinted in Justice League: Injustice League.
