With last issue’s near-disastrous attempted assault on California averted and citizens once again safe, it’s back to business as usual for the Order and not a minute too soon. Two team members stranded in the desert are hunted by gamma beasts under the thrall of a mysterious government agency, and another has been de-powered and kidnapped by the vicious girl gang the Black Dahlias — everybody’s favorite California super-group that isn’t the Eagles seems to be getting torn apart piece by piece. Because they are. But by who? Why? And to what end? The answers start coming hard and fast for the newest heroes in the Marvel Universe! By Matt Fraction (THE IMMORTAL IRON FIST, PUNISHER WAR JOUNAL, Casanova) and Barry Kitson (Legion of Super-Heroes, Empire).
