JLA (1996) #99 - Plot Synopsis


JLA (1996) #99
"Heartbreaker! The Tenth Circle Conclusion" is written by Chris Claremont and drawn by John Byrne and Jerry Ordway. Guest-starring the Doom Patrol. The vampire-lord Crucifer has plans to bring back all of his unholy brethren from the dimensional prison they were cast into in ancient days by the Amazons. In order to accomplish this, he has prepared the bodies of several young meta-humans capable of holding the essences of his vampiric Tenth Circle. He's also enslaved the entire populace of a rural Saskatchewan town and the Man of Steel himself, Superman. On top of all this, Crucifer has somehow rendered himself invulnerable to the traditional means of destroying a vampire, including putting a stake through his heart.

The JLA and the Doom Patrol have to rely on information and aid supplied by the young meta-human Nudge (who can psychically influence peoples' judgment), Grunt (a four-armed simian strongman) and Vortex (a mysterious youth capable of creating vacuums in space). Together, they figure out that Crucifer's invulnerability is due to the fact that his heart is stashed away in another dimension; one that Elasti-Girl and the Atom happened to come across (with the help of Raven Manitou). Tracking the vampire to Western Canada, the teams converge on his vampire and meta-human troops. But the showdown comes between the still-hypnotized Superman and a very "different" Wonder Woman! Don't miss the shocking conclusion: it leads into Doom Patrol #1.
