Colonel Gehr (of the Bulgravian army)
Two weeks elapse between p20 and p21 of this issue. Montgomery Kelly, Reno Rosetti and
Lois Lane are the only characters who appear in both sections. The demons, Human Defense
Corps personnel and Colonel Gehr appear only on pp1-20, while Olsen and Luthor appear
only on p21.
After giving an interview to Lois Lane, Montgomery Kelly of the newly formed
Human Defense Corps finds himself the first man on the ground in the Corps' first mission.
They are fighting what appear to be Durlans in Eastern Europe, but soon find themselves
under attack from enemies invisible to their night vision goggles, beings which tear
through Kelly's colleagues while he basically stands and watches. He is saved when a
Bulgravian army man realises the Corps is facing some kind of vampire and creates bombs
of 'holy napalam' which rids the forest of the creatures. As the sole survivor, Kelly
finds himself decorated by the president, although he knows it is a meaningless medal as
he is no hero.
