Neal Emerson is mentally ill, and that has led to some bad decisions, like taking his dying brother out of the hospital. Neal is sure he can cure him with his magnetic powers, but…it doesn’t seem to be working out that way. As Dr. Polaris, he’s also battling Earth’s newbie Green Lanterns, Jessica and Simon, and when things don’t go as he’d hoped, he ragefully pulls the Justice League Headquarters satellite out of orbit, intending to smash it into Gateway City. Simon in particular understands Neal’s pain from past experience, and he might have the willpower to help, if only Dr. Polaris will let him.
A solid story that didn’t always go where I thought it would, and an interesting direction for next issue. Recommended.
