It's neat to see character like Captain Cold - not a spoiler in my opinion since they say this in the description - and make him fit the mythology of this world as well as the historical elements that make this such an AU.
Still loving the way I can jump in at any time, still loving the new backgrounds and how the characters fit in without betraying their roots or making it weird with this whole world. And more with the nazis and the paranormal. And also fuck them: the way they pervert everything and beat it into a useful tool? Fuck them. Especially when they do this with people.
Um, yes, arguably this is where having read all the comics would help. But then again, the why wasn't as important as the journey and their sudden stowaway. And this is a lot of fun, with the needed continuity explained in a couple panels that furthered the relationships between these characters, and the rest being a new story. It's nice to know I can just jump in when I want, and will make it more likely to buy more of this in the future, even if I am more invested in a couple characters. I'll wait for them to come along and read those.
Bombshells #74 taught me to never fight my way into a nazi sub, because in addition to genocide, those motherfuckers were obsessed with paranormal shit. And DC is just rife with that, y'know? Even their AUs. (Or it'll turn into a vampire clusterfuck like on Angel.)
I keep forgetting that they wanted to use magic and psychics to kill everybody. So this is a good lesson to relearn every once in a while.
