In Human Bomb #1 we are introduced to a character named Joan. As we can see she is talking to Uncle Sam. In issue #2 we find out that she has mental powers. Is this the first appearance of the New 52 Miss America? After all the original Miss America’s secret identity was Joan Dale.

Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti talk about creating the new Human Bomb with Jerry Ordway at CBR. This is what they had to say about the new Human Bomb four-part mini-series.

You mentioned his origin is completely different. What are these four issues about? Is this an origin story for Human Bomb or are we thrown into the middle of his story?
Gray: We’re sort of plunked down in the middle of what’s happening to him as he unravels the mystery of who he is, why he has certain abilities and how that came about. It’s tied deeply to the story itself in moving him forward; it’s part mystery, it’s part science fiction, and there’s a lot of humanity in the character as he’s struggling to deal with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and understand what’s real and what’s not.
Palmiotti: The important thing for us was to make these books approachable to people who have no idea who the Human Bomb is. If you start at Issue #1, by the time you’re done with the miniseries you’ll know all you need to know. And again, we’re keep the people who have been fans for a while in mind — they’re going to get what we’re doing and the people who are new to the book, I think, are going to enjoy our take on it. But we definitely made the book approachable for new fans because we realize that even though the character has a long history there’s a lot of people who don’t really know who he is.
Gray: And we definitely wanted to take the concept of a human bomb and branch out further from what you’ve seen before of a guy in the radioactive suit, having to keep himself contained out of fear of doing harm to others, and we looked at the idea of making a bigger mythology to what the Human Bomb is and what it means.
Palmiotti: Yeah, I mean the idea of somebody who can just explode, it’s a really abstract concept! So for us it was, “How do we make sense of this? How do we make the reader care about who he is and what his powers are and then pull you in to a wild story?” We definitely looked at it from a lot of different angles and came up with what you see in front of you — and we think it’ll make a lot of people happy, hopefully!

I really how Justin and Jimmy are building the characters that create the Freedom Fighters before we see them as a team. We’ve already seen new 52 Ray, (who I assume is) Uncle Sam, Phantom Lady, Doll Man, and Human Bomb. I wonder which Quality character will get a shot at a mini next? Black Condor? Firebrand? Miss America? The Red Bee? The Invisible Hood? Neon the Unkown? The Jester? Mango? The Red Torpedo? Manhunter? Plastic-Man? Max Mercury?

Palmiotti & Gray Talk Phantom Lady

Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray spoke with CBR about their upcoming Phantom Lady miniseries. Here is an excerpt from the interview.

Along those lines, what’s the story in your miniseries? Are we seeing the origin of these two heroes?

Gray: Yes, the origin as well as revamping them in a way that is closer to their original incarnations. Phantom Lady is more of a street level heroine in this book. That’s a departure from the nearly cosmic scale of Stormy Knight and the sort of spoiled princess with emotional problems during our “Uncle Sam And The Freedom Fighters” runs.

The Source has announced DC will be publishing Phantom Lady, a four-part miniseries written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti, illustrated by Cat Staggs and Rich Perotta, and covers by Amanda Palmer. This series will not only feature Phantom Lady but also her partner Doll Man. This is what Justin Gray had to say about the series:

Phantom Lady and Doll Man is an exciting return to the roots of the characters as pulpy, street level crime fighters with a few new twists and some heavy sci-fi overtones. We took the best of their original core concepts and updated them with no relation to our previous work on Phantom Lady and Doll Man in the Freedom Fighters. You’re getting in on the ground floor of the origin story of two people whose lives intersect and a common threat that transforms them into pretty amazing and engaging superheroes.

I hope the Ray and Uncle Sam pop up in this series too and it starts to build to a new Freedom Fighters.
