    Mr. Grant knows this history, and so he does not complicate matters with a fresh new slant or a mind-boggling uncharacteristic turn. For this issue, Mr. Grant designs an impossible theft amid a life-saving rescue. What keeps Selina's character in check along with the idea of a core historical characterization that no amount of tampering can intrinsically alter is Brad Rader's splendid visual continuity.
