Synopsis for "The Alien Alliance"Edit
- Synopsis not yet written.
- Following this issue, a number of tie-ins are produced exploring the effects of the invasion all across the DC Universe, as the heroes of Earth struggle to fight against the Alien Alliance that threatens their lives and their planet. These are labeled Invasion! First Strike and lead the characters directly into the second issue.
- This issue gives special thanks to Robert Greenberger, Mark Waid and Tom Christopher.
- This marks for the first usage of the word "Metahuman", as well as the concept of the metagene.
- This issue is reprinted in the Invasion! trade paperback.
- The Dominators mention that the Guardians of the Universe designated Earth as the site for the next great evolutionary advancement in the universe, similar to their own. This happened back in Green Lantern (Volume 2) #200.
- This is the second appearance of Vril Dox, originally introduced as Brainiac 2 back in Superman #167. His character is completely revamped since his first appearance, where he was only shown as a child, see excerpt.
- Although Medphyll is apparently killed in this issue, he has the ability to transfer his consciousness into other plant-life, and survives the encounter.
- The Alien Alliance receives a strict warning from Darkseid that they must not destroy Earth, for he has interests there. He is speaking of the Anti-Life Equation. This also justifies why the Alliance does not simply obliterate the Earth from afar.
