The Authority: Scorched Earth

 ATSE   (WildStorm, 2003)

™ and ©2003

Roughly two years after the last issue of the ongoing The Authority series, 2000 A.D. scribe Robbie Morrison brings back the irreverent team for another slam–bang adventure. All the regulars are back: Swift, the Midnighter, Jack Hawksmoore, and the rest. This time facing the ultimate challenge—the Sun itself has gone rogue and is attempting to take out Planet Earth in a fit of rage. How can this be, you ask? Here’s where the story touches on a great piece of team history, by reintroducing former Stormwatch team leader, Winter. Apparently, the energy–absorbing metahuman has been trapped in the heart of the sun ever since sacrificing himself to save the earth in the classic WildC.A.T.S/Aliens crossover that subsequently lead directly into the creation of the Authority team. While not quite the mega–big–screen adventure from the classic Ellis–Hitch days of the title, this story serves as great filler for The Authority junkie!
