So, this is it. We've officially hit the MISTER MIRACLE halfway point and, in the process, we've come up on a major turning point for the story in more ways than one. But we'll talk about consequences in a second. First, we need to talk about rules and warnings.
Hey, can I tell you a love story?
It's a good one, I promise. It's actually, maybe, not even really a love story. Not how you're thinking, anyway. It's only one in the sense that it's about two people who love each other.
Scott Free and Big Barda have been together for a really, really long time. I mean that both in the narrative sense, but also in the real life sense. Jack Kirby created them back in the ’70s. That means they've at least been in one another's orbit for over forty years. That's a pretty long time to exist with another person, fictional or otherwise.
