Classic DC Hero Makes Their Rebirth Debut in August’s Damage #8

DC Comics’ August 2018 solicits have revealed the Rebirth debut of a classic DC character.

In the pages of Damage #8, Ethan Avery finds help from an unexpected source: Unknown Soldier. The expert warfighter’s first appearance during the DC Rebirth era has him aid Ethan while the titular hero is recuperating in a hospital, still unable to transform into Damage until he recharges his powers. With a hospital of innocent patients in the crossfire and the military on his heels, Ethan will have to rely on his newfound ally if he hopes to maintain his freedom.

Unknown Soldier was created by writer Robert Kanigher and artist Joe Kubert for Our Army at War #168 in 1966. Initially depicted as a supporting character for Sgt. Rock, the original Unknown Soldier was a disfigured World War II soldier with his face wrapped heavily in bandages who eventually became a wartime master of disguise.
