VANDAL SAVAGE: “YOUR JOB IS TO CONTINUE MY DYNASTY.”

SCANDAL: “DIDN’T YOU GET MY NOTE?! I GAVE THAT UP FOR LESBIANISM.”
We learn that the Robot Lois is working with someone else while the Secret Six rescue Lex Luthor from Vandal Savage. The events in this issue continue in next week’s Secret Six #29. The back-up story with Jimmy Olsen by Nick Spencer and artist RB Silva puts Jimmy Olsen in a charity where he auctions himself out as a date. Of course his former girlfriend Chloe Sullivan is auctioning herself out to charity as well. Someone bids a million dollars on Jimmy who is from the 5th dimension as Mxyzptlk and plans to marry him. The story continues in Jimmy Olsen #1 in March 2011.
