Comparing The Movement to The Authority is inevitable, but is it accurate? One of comics’ most proactive superteams is a lot more street-level than their cosmic clubhouse counterparts, and, like a lot of real-life movements, held together as much by their core concepts’ lack of definition than the presence of it. When those concepts begin to delineate themselves, you get a schism like this month’s, when Tremor and Katharsis disagree about how much mercy to show. The former’s more powerful, but the latter’s more brutal, and–as her codename implies–brings equilibrium at a bloody price.
Now that you’re all caught up, enjoy the brawl by writer Gail Simone and artist Freddie Williams II, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean!
