Midnighter #4-#5 (HERE BE SPOILERS!)

I honestly don't have too much to say about this two-issue arc.  Midnighter kidnaps Dick to help him take down one of the guys using God Garden tech, though it seems pretty clear that the only reason that he did so was to see him naked in a sauna.  (Fair.)  Dick decides to stay on the case since the thief, named Akakyevich, experimented with the technology on innocent people.  For Akakyevich's part, he used these people to create something called the Beast Battalion, splicing together their bodies with animals and the tech.  However, he really wanted to get his hands on Midnighter's computer brain so he could sell it to militaries around the world.  Not surprisingly, the Abdominally Gifted Duo make pretty short work of the Battalion and him.  Along the way, we're treated to an incredible amount of flirting, like when Midnighter lets Dick save him in the aforementioned sauna simply because he enjoys hearing Dick scream his name.  Needless to say, it's all good fun.

*** (three of five stars)
