THE STORY: So we get a lot of Teasdale explaining his motivations in this issue which — yawn. He’s a mad scientist pure and simple, and while there’s some meta commentary about the nature of mad scientists, that isn’t really enough to justify quite so many pages dedicated to this bozo.
The twist is that the experiments Teasdale did which led to him creating an army of zombies (yep they’re zombies now apparently not vampires, though still quite bite-y) were funded and encouraged heartily by Simon Stagg, AKA Metamorpho’s Dad-in-law. Teasdale is now rampaging his way through the Balkans, apparently out of revenge for Stagg… doing something.
It’s all very rampagey.
