|Spectre Issues #13-15: One Nation Under Doom...|
|Spectre's Character Sheet||
Spectre awakens in a small clearing within a lush forest.
The sky is blue and there are white clouds hanging above.
Spectre telekinetically flies above the tree line to get a better
view. Upon doing so, a pair
of power-armored patrolmen approach him, asking him to identify himself.
He does so and the pair scan him, revealing that he’s a mutant
and listing his powers off to someone else via radio communication.
The patrolmen receive orders to terminate Spectre, and a battle
begins. Spectre quickly dispatches the patrol using his mind blast
attack, but not before four reinforcements arrive. Spectre quickly realizes that these four new attackers are
robots. Unable to use his
main powers against them, Spectre relies on his telekinesis to combat
them. Unfortunately, four
powerful robots with energy blasts prove to be too powerful for Spectre
to take on single-handedly, and after a particularly devastating blast,
Spectre uses the last bit of his strength to move himself
telekinetically with the blast, blasting him completely away from the
battlefield. The combined
force causes Spectre to black out in mid-air.
Upon awakening, Spectre notices an old style schoolhouse not too
far from where he landed in the woods.
As he reaches the clearing where the school is, he notices
several children are outside saying the pledge of allegiance.
Spectre becomes particularly unnerved when he realizes what kind
of pledge the children are reciting, “One Nation, Under DOOM”...
Spectre decides to investigate the area, and heads towards the
local library. He notices
that there are members of the Doom Patrol on just about every street
corner, scanning the area and keeping the peace.
Spectre comes upon the library, which is one of the largest
buildings in the town. He
cannot enter the library without a pass card, so Spectre uses his
telepathy to gain access into the building.
He reads the history of this alternate earth, finding out that
Doom killed most of the heroes and took over the U.S. and other major
parts of the world. After
discovering a few interesting tidbits, Spectre leaves the library.
He wanders the town for a short while, until he is directed by a
Doom Patrol that he needs to go home before curfew.
Spectre tries to leave the town by the same way he entered it,
going psionically invisible, but was detected by a Doom Patrol.
After psychic blasting the Doom Patrol, the reinforcement he had
called in, a Doom Stalker, appeared in a flash of light.
Spectre attacked her, but he was bested by one shot of her light
blast. As he blacked out,
he overheard the Doom Stalker being referred to as Strobe.
After regaining consciousness in the back of a semi, only to be
brought down again by Strobe, Spectre awakens transported to Chicago,
where he is interrogated by Strobe, a Doom Psionic, and another Doom
Stalker named Bodycount. After
the Doom Psionic verified Spectre’s far-fetched story, Bodycount
informed Spectre of his situation; be a Doom Stalker or die.
Apparently, Chicago was extremely undermanned and the local Doom
Enforcement were willing to work with Spectre.
After some mild examination and training, he went on patrol with
Bodycount, telling him tales of Spectre’s alternate earth.
After investigating a scream coming from an alleyway, the two
Doom Stalkers ran into N’astirh, who was hunting for Spectre.
The two battled N’astirh and began to wear him down, so
N’astirh created a portal behind for a fast exit.
Realizing that N’astirh was planning to escape, Spectre jumped
through the portal, with Bodycount following closely behind.
Reappearing in Limbo, N’astirh walked through the portal as
well, ready for the final showdown.
