- Brian Polk (23 mins of Ska Podcast – 23ska.com – @radjose writes in:
Last episode, I think it was Matt (L) who wrote in asking about Rainmaker being half-sister to Threshold and Bliss and where was that established.
- It was established in the pages of “Team Seven: Dead Reckoning” where we see Steven Callahan and his wife announce that they are pregnant. When the baby is born the doctors tell Steven that both his wife and baby are dead. It’s all a plot by Craven to get the Gen-Active baby. His wife overhears this, fakes being dead until she can grab baby Rainmaker and high tail it out of there back to her family on the reservation to help be raised. Later we see Callahan’s new family along w/ his 2 new kids along with his new wife. I think there was more in the Gen12 series, and yes, we see Steven bite it at the beginning of the Gen13 mini-series.
- Question for you two:
If the WildStorm Universe could come back today how would you like to see it? Pick up right where they left off? Or should we join a universe that has been in progress for the last several years and has built their way out of “World’s End” and unravel the story of what happened between the end and now as the books are being published?

- For the week of 9/02 – MIDNIGHTER#4 – Grayson and Midnighter—reunited at last! Granted, it wasn’t Grayson’s idea, and yes, technically Midnighter might have kidnapped him. And, uh, brought him to Moscow to fight a herd of feral vampires. Maybe this reunion is getting off on the wrong foot…
- For the week of 10/07 – MIDNIGHTER #5 – Grayson and Midnighter have finally cornered the man selling the tech that was stolen from the God Garden! Unfortunately for them, he’s saved all the best toys for himself! Somebody’s not leaving Russia alive
- For the week of 11/04 – MIDNIGHTER #6 – Midnighter’s always lived his life believing nothing could ever hurt him—but that was before he let someone he cared about into his world! When a mysterious enemy targets the family of the man he loves, all bets are off…
