"Originally published in single magazine form in MIDNIGHTER 1-20, MIDNIGHTER: ARMAGEDDON 1"--Indicia.
"The Midnighter is the most dangerous man on the planet--able to plan a fight a million moves ahead, capable of killing ruthlessly, relentlessly and without remorse. Fed up with his teammates in the Authority (including his husband, Apollo) and their lost mission of saving the world from itself, Midnighter strikes out on his own. Despite possessing superhuman abilities to see every move his opponents will make, Midnighter can't see what's ahead for himself. He's blackmailed into assassinating Hitler before the start of World War II; he's given a chance to find out about his past, before he became a superhuman killing machine; and he's hunted by an assassin with unlimited means. He's the Midnighter, what soldiers dream of becoming--what children see when they first imagine what death is like."--Provided by publisher.
