"William Hell's Overture": The synopsis for this issue has not yet been written.

Quote1 You're decent folks. You work hard. You sacrifice for your family and your country. You respect and obey the law. No one ever gave you nothing. You made what you got. You struggle to keep it. Only one way to do that. You got to stick together. And I mean all together -- black, white, latino, what have you! The only power you got comes from your numbers! Those in charge know that! And what's the best way to keep you under control? Hate! Keep you separate from those with which you should have something in common! And you fall for it... every time! Get this through your heads -- black, white, whatever; You're all the "little guy." And anything -- any right, any freedom -- they can take from the next guy they can take from you. And that's a fact. Quote2
-- Deadshot
