When Milestone returned, Reginald Hudlin and Denys Cowan weren't planning to stop there! Now they wel-come you to a whole new realm of original characters, extending far beyond Dakota...welcome to Earth-M! Nanotech engineers Dr. Kelly Vu and Dr. David Kim are committed to only one thing more than each other: using their regenerative nanobots to save the world. And following a violent attack, those very same nanobots end up saving David and Kelly's lives...sort of. Their salvation comes with an unexpected consequence: husband and wife awaken to realize that they now share one super-powered body! Writer Greg Pak (Action Comics, Batman/Superman) more

    Pak doesn't rush into making Duo a hero just yet setting the groundwork for the potential of the character. It's a good start and that's even before the strong cliffhanger. Read Full Review
