Heroes in Crisis #6 Solicit Offers a Crucial Clue About the Sanctuary Killer

Heroes in Crisis #6

The solicitation text for February's Heroes in Crisis #6 offers a clue to the identity of the killer.

The DC comics event centers around a murder mystery at Sanctuary, a secret hospital and safe space for the heroes of the DC Universe. The chief suspects in the case have been Harley Quinn and Booster Gold, who were both at Sanctuary at the time of a mass murder took place there.

However, the newly released solicitation for the sixth issue teases the identity of the killer, and reveals the murderer is (or at least was) a hero before arriving at Sanctuary. That seems to confirm that Harley Quinn (who has never been considered a straight-up superhero) isn’t the culprit. But it also doesn’t look good for Booster Gold, who has been noticeably off since the event in question.
