Let us take a look at The IMPERIAL PALACE, formerly Metropolis. Granny Goodness has had ample time to try to rebuild the furies after the losses in their sieges of Hydra North Castle and Latveria. Among those selected from the "Volunteers" were Supergirl,
Powergirl, Emma Frost, Raven, and Tigra. The Lady Mayor, Lois Lane has embraced service to Governor Kalibak with open arms and open legs. Rumor has it that she had been brainwashed into being an agent of Apokolpyse long before the invasion and had struck
the first blow in the assassination of the Man of Steel.
Only in many of the worst of the desolation zones can you find what happened to those that failed to resist the invasion. Hydra North Castle in Norway was a burned out husk where a "Re-educated" Vypra stood guard over the bones of her former master The
Red Skull. The weather queen Storm now ravaged all of Africa from the shattered ruins of Wakanda. Ironicly the most feared man is the minister of Truth and Justice, the smiling demon, The Joker now wanders from enclave to enclave hunting down disobedience
to Lord Kalibak.
But even in the Apokolipsian territories things are not secure; there are rumors of a man with a shield slaying Para-demons, a cat burglar that has been breaking open food depots and distributing them to the slave herds, and an indistructable monster that
destroys all forces of Apokolips in it's path.
Many of the new agents of Apokolips work with in the territories of their enamies. The Propaganda announces each new kill, Lady Natasha has completed in service to Apokolips. Gorilla Grodd continues to subvert independent settlements in advance of the
battalions Baron Von Stucker. The fastest man alive seeks out new information on his enamies movements and then returns them to his masters like a Flash.
