Subplots pick up speed this issue as SYNN and TARA FREMONT finally meet up with The SHADE (as Roger Brant) and BLACK PHANTOM to learn the ‘PHANTOM’S bizarre time-slipping situation- little-knowing that they barely miss running into the fugitive STORMY TEMPEST, as we begin to learn what the time-travelling heroine’s mission actually isall about in our present day in “Hiding In Plain Sight”, written by Mark Heike, penciled by Rock Baker, and inked by Jeff Austin.

When both SHE-CAT and NIGHTVEIL return from thetr exotic adventures, an angry confrontation with MS. V leads to ‘CAT confessing to NV that she’s lost her powers.
