Night Thrasher #5
Issue(s): Night Thrasher #5
Last issue we also saw that Hancock contracted to have the "Air Force", a group of people in bird exoskeletons, attack the Taylor Foundation. So they attack the plane while it's on route.
Sprocket is flying the plane, but she's unable to shake them. Night Thrasher's identity is apparently a secret from the board, so he has to find a way to defeat the birds without giving it up.
For a little bit of flavor, it also turns out that Sprocket used to date one of the birds, Cardinal.
Night Thrasher eventually finds a way to hack into the birds' exoskeletons.
Thrash then conscripts the birds into helping with the war relief.
Best character moment is when Cardinal recognizes that Father Janes was in 'Nam.
Also in this issue we continue to see Bandit (not named) approaching people from Night Thrasher's life. This issue it's Silhouette. He surprises her, causing her to (sigh) phase out of her clothing. He then looks her over admiringly and says that Thrash is an idiot for letting her go.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: The MCP place this along with Night Thrasher #2-4 between New Warriors #38-39. But a footnote in this issue includes New Warriors #39. The reference is vague and could be ignored, but i don't think there are any dependencies either way, so i'm going to honor the footnote and place this after #39.
Continuity Insert? N
