It was a day like any other in Key West. The sun was shining, people were out and about as they enjoyed their day, and a gigantic subterranean hellbeast was wreaking havoc downtown. Well, almost like any other. Though ever since Koriand’r came to town, it seems like monster attacks are increasing with an alarming frequency. To make matters worse, this particular monster seems impervious to bullets; in fact, bullets actually make it grow larger in size, which is proving troublesome for the local police force. With this abyssal adversary threatening the one part of Florida worth saving, what is our hero to do? Simple — enlist the aid of a new ally, namely the superpowered hero known as Atlee. Watch what happens when these two first cross paths in our exclusive preview of DC Comics’ Starfire #4.
