Item Biography

"A Flash Of The Lightning"

*In the Anti-Monitor's ship, the Psycho Pirate is babbling in fear to the Flash, who is imprisoned in a gelatin-like substance. The Pirate prates on of how the enemy will kill him, now that he has failed him. He asks the Flash to join him against the enemy, when, suddenly, the Anti-Monitor appears. He has fashioned himself a new body and new armor, Supergirl having nearly destroyed him. Now they will shift their base to Qward, he says, and from there they will annihilate the five remaining Earths. The villain tells the Pirate that he won't die - yet - as his powers may still be useful and there is no time to create another like him.

On Apokolips, Desaad asks Darkseid what can be done to stop the Anti-Monitor, and he replies that all of Apokolips' energy has been diverted to cloak them from the enemy. They will wait, until after the battle. Should the heroes win, nothing will have been changed. Should the foe win, he will have been weakened enough to be killed.

On Oa, several Green Lanterns have been killed by the power outburst, while the Guardians have been freed. A female Green Lantern asks why they weren't called in to fight the unknown menace. The Guardians reply that their rings will now work, and that they knew a disturbance in the universe existed, but not its extent. The Lanterns reply that their demand for an investigation was refused, and one of the Guardians calls for a halt to the questioning. Their policy was decided by majority vote. The others must abide by the decision. The other Oan replies that they may not.

On Earth-1, in the 30th century, some Legionnaires are monitoring the five Earths. They note that the merging of Earths has stopped for the moment. When the White Witch reminds them that the victory was won at the cost of Supergirl's life, Brainiac 5 tensely tells them that the time differential is still in operation where the Earths overlap, and he must find a way to repair the damage.

In 1985 Pittsburg, Firehawk locates Firestorm, who receives a radio message from the Vixen. She is taking T.O. Morrow, creator of the Red Tornado, to the JLA satellite to work on their fallen android comrade. Firehawk and Firestorm join her. In the satellite, they find Vixen, T.O. Morrow, J'onn J'onzz, Cyborg, and the Atom examining Tornado. The Atom has shrunk himself via Superman's reducing ray, and is transmitting pictures from the android's interior. Tornado's construction proves beyond his scientific expertise, and Morrow is stunned to find that the android no longer has the insides that he had designed. Professor Stein, Firestorm's other half, notes that the construction is so unearthly it may be impossible to save him.

Meanwhile, the Green Lantern of Earth-1, has gone to Los Angeles in search of the Blue Devil to help examine the android. Transported to the satellite, Blue Devil observes Morrow removing Tornado's head, and tries to warn the scientist of a strange glow coming from the android's internal composition, but he is disregarded. The Atom jumps out of the Tornado's chest plate. Now, Morrow and the heroes are forced back by an explosion from the android's body, and fire spreads throughout the satellite. While pursuing Morrow, the Blue Devil mistakingly runs into a space warp, sending him tumbling through sub-space.

Green Lantern, Cyborg, Firestorm, Firehawk, J'onn J'onzz, and Vixen assemble, and find that Morrow and the Blue Devil have vanished, so they leave the satellite.

Blue Devil has emerged on the bridge of one of Omega Men's spaceships, where he confronts Shlagen, Zirral, Rynoc, and Doc, leaving both sides dumbfounded. But the space warp they have fallen into is causing their ship to disintegrate. Soon, Blue Devil and the four aliens are left clinging to debris, seconds away from certain death.

On Qward, the Anti-Monitor is busy supervising the reconstruction of his anti-matter cannon, with which he hopes to obliterate the remaining Earths. The laborers who work on the cannon are supervised by the Thunderers, who reward any slacking off with death.

In another passageway, Psycho-Pirate looks in on the still-imprisoned Flash, guarded by a Thunderer, and intends to torture the speedster some more. But the Flash whirls his body at blinding speed, spinning the gelatin away from him. Free, he belts the Pirate and knocks the Thunderer out. He smashes the Pirate with another blow, getting revenge for weeks of humiliation. He was once convicted of a murder he never committed; what difference would it make if he killed now?

The Pirate, his face swollen and bleeding, begs for mercy, telling the hero that he'll do anything he wants. Soon, the Flash speeds his pawn from one Thunderer to another, causing them to feel intense hatred for their master. Shortly, all the Thunderers rage, "Death to the Monitor!" and blast him with their bolts. Even he cannot stave off the effects, and screams in pain and rage.

Meanwhile, the Flash has forced the Pirate to show him the anti-matter cannon. He knocks the villain out and, vibrating through the weapon's casing, discovers a seething ball of anti-matter energy, kept in stasis by bands of force. The presence of this energy already weakens him, and he knows he can only destroy the weapon at the cost of his own life. Flash begins running around the anti-matter sphere at hyper-light speed. The effect is very painful, but he continues to force the energy back into the machine. He mind races: he remembers his family, his wife, his closest friends, and begs their forgiveness for leaving them in this manner.

While the Flash is straining against the anti-matter, the Anti-Monitor, still beset by the Thunderers, knows that his weapon is being tampered with, and lets loose a bolt of power that destroys his Thunderers, and leaves the surroundings a flaming ruin. Standing in the blaze, he knows that the Flash is responsible for this.

Within the cannon, the hero continues his fateful run, feeling the time-stream open around him. In this open time-portal, he sees Kid Flash, the Joker, and Batman. While his flesh ages and melts away, he shouts words of warning to them. Finally, he is reduced to a skeleton, just as the cannon explodes into a million pieces. Louder still is the scream of the Anti-Monitor, too late to save his weapon.

The Flash has died, and saved five universes.

Only his costume and his ring remain, lying in the wreckage.

The Anti-Monitor stands in contemplation. The humans have thwarted him twice now in his attempt to eradicate the final five universes, so they shall pay for their interference. So saying, he absorbs into himself the energy of his entire Anti-Matter Universe, condemning to death the inhabitants of a million worlds.

On Earth-1, in Challenger Mountain, the Challengers of the Unknown are watching conditions in space. Prof and Red note a giant flux of energy, while June Robbins reports that the sub-space readings given to them by Superman for checking all result positive. Rocky asks what's going on, and Ace replies that nobody knows. Suddenly, Prof is nearly deafened by a sound in his headphones like "an agonizing scream permeating the entire universe." The other four Challengers hear it next, and are driven to their knees by its force.

The scream comes from the Spectre, who stands like a cosmic colossus over the five worlds, sensing a move to change the very reality of nature, but helpless to do anything about it. *Source: The Official Crisis on Infinite Earths Index #1 - Published by ICG.

State of the Hall Address - October 2019
What a month of September it was for The Hall! Very awesome and productive all around. Not only have I been consistently showing up in the Top 10 Sellers for the month here I have also been crushing it on the four letter auction site! \:d/ Gearing up for the holidays over there by listing even more toys and action figures. Right now I'm getting all the Star Wars figs that I have up and soon I will be on to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Power Rangers.

I was able to get three boxes listed here last month and they have been a big hit. Thank you all for buying and continuing to make Hall of Heroes your go to store when it comes to quality and consistency! >:d<

October is shaping up to be another fantastic month in the Hall. I have a long box that should go live in the next couple of days and plenty more lined up right behind it. I think after this one I will focus on the Jack Kirby box that has been much anticipated and frequently requested. I think that you all will like it!

Also did another huge catering event in September. It was wildly successful and I had a lot of fun doing it. I don't have any more of those lined up in the short term but once the new year arrives and temps start to warm up there will certainly be more of those.

I keep teasing a promotion but have been way too busy to do it right. That will no longer be a problem so keep you eyes peeled! b-) :-w

Thank you as always to my patient and loyal customers! I will continue striving to do my best and bring you fun, entertainment and value and I have no doubt that you will respond in kind! :-*

GOAL - 40,000 COMICS

Current Inventory = 32,273

Number of books added = 3,560

Need to reach goal: 7,727

Number of boxes listed - 12


Free S&H for orders of $25 and up.
- This option is for Media Mail to the US only. I have separate pricing for Priority Mail and International orders

ALL Comics come bagged and boarded - Gold and Silver books will always come in Mylar bags no matter what cost or condition. Some other (but not all) high dollar comics will be in Mylar as well. If you want all of your books in Mylar please send me a PM.

Every* order ships in a cardboard box
*International orders ship in a Flat Rate Priority Envelope with cardboard packing - if you want 6 comics or fewer it might be cheaper to use First Class International, please send me a PM.

ALL orders come with free tracking or customs form number information - Also, I only mark an order as "Shipped" after I have dropped it off with the Post Office. Notification will be sent as soon as possible thereafter, usually within 24 hours.

Grading - I do my best to grade judiciously and impartially. If you have a disagreement with a grade I have assigned to a book then please contact me with your concern. I am not perfect. I make mistakes but I would never intentionally misrepresent a book's condition. I am always trying to improve and graciously accept constructive criticism.

Fast Shipping Promise - All orders will ship no later than the next business day or you receive a free comic of my choice. Friday orders will ship no later than Monday. Sometimes I am able to ship on Saturday but not always. If your order is in before 3PM it will usually ship same day.

International Shipping Program (ISP) - If you want to buy something from a CCL Store that doesn't offer International Shipping I will buy it and then send it to you for a nominal fee - 10% or $5 whichever is less. You DO NOT need to make a purchase from my Store in order to use the Service. Please send me a Personal Message with details.

Combine With eBay - If you want to buy something from here and my eBay store then I will combine shipping. Not only that, but my Free Shipping option of $25 or up will count toward the combined total between the stores. So if you buy $15 here and $10 there I will ship together for free! Please make sure you send me a PM (Personal Message) here to alert me that you have ordered from both platforms. Please do not contact me on eBay for this offer as I'm sure they would probably frown upon it.

If you are a Newsstand collector feel free to PM me and I will let you know if my copy for sale is newsstand or Direct.

I return Feedback when I receive it. My reasoning behind this is until I hear back from you I don't know if you have received your package and if you were happy with it or not. If you leave me a Rating and I don't reciprocate please remind me. I stay on top of it as much as I can so it's usually not a problem. If there is a problem that causes you to consider leaving non Hero feedback PLEASE contact me and allow me the chance to make things right.

I will provide scans upon request. If you want one be sure to send me your e-mail address and I will get it right out.
