CHECKMATE (2006) #12 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Checkmate (2006) #12
"Corvalho" part two is written by Greg Rucka and drawn by Munzio Defilippis and Christina Weir. Father issues are especially hard to deal with for someone like Beatriz da Costa a.k.a. Fire, a White Knight of Checkmate. Trained to compete in the Olympics for Brazil and also trained to be an assassin, expectations for excellence and lethality were very high and not only a matter of national pride but also of life and death. While in Santa Prisca, a South American country embroiled in political strife, Fire has assassinated Colonel Computron, a cyber crook who claimed to know who was pulling the strings on local elections.

Tommy Jagger witnesses Fire's act of violence and unfortunately so does Bane, the leader of Santa Prisca's military junta. He comes drawn by Fire's legendary green flame and discovers Jagger covering their escape. Jagger has every reason to want Bane dead. The Batman villain killed his father, the legendary Judomaster but Jagger withholds his vengeance out of respect for the mission. But once back at Checkmate headquarters, he informs on da Costa and she's placed under arrest. Taleb Ben Khalid, the Black King, suspects she was acting on orders of Amanda Waller, the White Queen, but also knows she's trying to protect her father, the former death squad commander known as Corvalho. So he offers Fire a deal: either she or her father is going to prison.
