The New DNAgents

 NEWD   (Eclipse, 1985-1987)

and 1985 Evanier and Schauer

The DNAgents (Surge, Rainbow, Tank, Amber, and Sham) are five super-heroes created by Dr. Harden, a brilliant Russian scientist. Harden was a mole, an undercover spy planted by the Russians years before he was needed, so that he could infiltrate the system. However, when the time came for him to go back and report what he knew, he refused. Harden felt an obligation to his creations, but the head of the super-hero project, Luscious Krell, is a ruthless, man corrupted by power. Although the DNAgents each possess miraculous abilities, they were designed as mindless soldiers. However, the world would learn that the DNAgents are not so easily controlled.

One of the unique points about this second version of DNAgents, is that Eclipse priced this series at seventy-five cents, a cheap price for an independent comic in 1985. The series was printed in color, written by Mark Evanier, drawn by Mitch Schauer, and inked by Willie Blyberg.
