New Warriors #54-56
Issue(s): New Warriors #54, New Warriors #55, New Warriors #56
"Air Force", the bird-themed team that the New Warriors have encountered a couple times, are attacked by a new group of villains led by, er, Admiral Protocol and General Obsidian.
Their goal has something to do with converting super-powered people to their cause. They have super-powered goons with names like Right and Wrong, and Cut and Dry. Cardinal escapes and goes to the New Warriors for help. But the New Warriors get overwhelmed by Dry, etc., too, so Hindsight Lad has to call in reserve members Turbo and Powerpax (and Alex Power once again steals his siblings' powers).
The other New Warriors are rescued, but Protocol escapes and Namorita is captured.
And that's what kind of makes this story inexcusable. If you need to crank out some nonsense to kill time for a few issues while you develop a plan for your run, fine. But don't set things up so that these characters have to appear again.
Quality Rating: D
Chronological Placement Considerations: Night Thrasher and Rage are not around due to "current issues of Night Thrasher". Dagger and Darkhawk fail to respond to Hindsight Lad's call for back-up. "Five days" pass before an epilogue, while the New Warriors search for Namorita and distribute aid to Rwandan refugees. Namorita shouldn't appear elsewhere after this arc.
Continuity Insert? N
