Secret Six#28: Thank You, Gail Simone! (Warning: Spoilers!)

When DC killed off Ryan(TheAtom)  Choi in the Titans: Villains for Hire one-shot, they pissed off a lot of Ryan fans. And who can blame them? Ryan was unceremoniously stabbed in the chest by Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke to showcase his new team. Then, to add more insult, Ryan's corpse was shrunken, stuffed into a matchbox, and delivered to Dwarfstar, the sadistic size-changing serial killer who had hired Slade's team. Corpse and matchbox are presumably still in Dwarfstar's possession. So you can see why fans would be angry.


One of those angry fans was yours truly. But another was clearly Gail Simone. but unlike the rest of us, Gail could vent her frustrations into DC canon.


First, she wrote a self-contained Elseworlds-type tale in which the Six were characters in the Old West, and had to band together to square off against a band of marauders assembled by the Old West version of Ragdoll's sister. These marauders included a one-eyed mercenary named Slade. Here's what happened when Slade faced off against Deadshot and Bane.




But that was just Gail's warm-up.


In the storyline prior to the Wild West story, Bane and Jeanette had assembled their new version of the Six, and included not only the aforementioned Dwarfstar but also Ryan's former girlfriend, Giganta.  Giganta spends the next story arc unaware that Ryan is dead, or that Dwarfstar had him killed.


Until someone whose name rhymes with "The Mall" tells her.


The end of issue#28 is the result.



And that's not even one of the good parts.


Thank you, Gail!

I hadn't read the story when Ryan got killed, so I didn't get the context with Slade in the Wild West story. But there was no missing it this time. I cheered. Fortunately, not too loudly, as I was reading it on the subway. But now I can't pretend Ryan's still alive, anymore.

Oh the best part of the recent Secret Six issue...other than the shark guy doing a cannonball into the hot tub...was Giganta having her her little...conversation with Dwarf Star.

It...is epic.
