Promethea No. 9

Having been in New York (and Immateria) from the start of the run this comicbook now takes us to a new place - L.A.

Promethea takes the offensive and brings the battle to the late Solomon's turf.

I didn't know Promethea's voice was scary.

A flashback to New York shows why Sophie is fighting mad.

Promethea 'reads' a deleted hard drive with the Caduceus - how useful is that wand?

This picture would be more effective if she was actually targeting the hard drive and not the monitor.

The Mayor is a perfect hiding place for the Goetia. He can say this.

And it will just be attributed to one of his multiple personalities.

With the physical Barbara dead, Sophie checks up on Barbara in Immateria but she isnt' there.

Hmmm, so you can decide to 'move on'.

With her mentor gone, Sophie is forced to endure less than ideal replacements.

I'm not surprised by what Faust wants in return but maybe that's asking too much from Sophie/Promethea.

When Promethea raided Solomon's place she came out with a name: 'Henry Royce'. This is he.

Wasn't the original Promethea's Dad killed by a young Catholic Church?

Unlike Batman, who can't quite bring himself to 'end' the Joker, Promethea is pretty decisive about the Temple.

Too bad she doesn't know about the Mayor.

And here is the Temple. Quite surprising.

The weapon, they saved it through the centuries.

What happens next happens to the next generation of the Temple, and it isn't violent at all.

Promethea simply shows them that she is no demon from hell but the spirit of imagination. She leaves a little warning to keep the adults in line though.

And Faust's condition?

Well, this should be interesting.
