Indexer Notes

The is the first time civilian identities are given for the majority of Luthor's team, and it is indicated that no code names have been issued. "Herakles" may be a nickname the group gave Gerome. Publisher has released copies of the breakdown art that indicates the codnames as: Lumina (Natasha), Ultimate Man (Jacob), Trajectory (Eliza, also refrenced as Velocity), Herakles, Omnivore (Hannibal), and Reaver (Erik). Also, the apparent death of Red Tornado in issue 5 is revisited with his mostly intact and functional head and torso showing up here.
