What The Canon-Fodder Does When The Crisis Is Over!

So, let's say that you're a trio of characters who were created specifically for a big crossover event.

But now the event is over, and your lives seem kind of purposeless, and you're stranded on a world you never made.

In other words, you're canon-fodder without anything to do. So what do you do?

Well maybe, just maybe, you can go appear on Clark Kent's brand new talk show!

Wow--Pariah and Lady Quark AND Harbinger for your first show? Just think of the ratings!!

And so what brings them to Metropolis??'re going around cataloging heroes? Essentially you're putting together the new post-Crisis Who's Who? That's your grand mission?!? You can't fight crime or help the helpless? You're just researching your ur-Wikipedia?!?

At least they're staying out of trouble...

Oh, don't worry...that was just a random super-villain blacking out Metropolis. Much fighting ensued.

Anyway, I suppose our guests are lucky--had this happened today, they'd probably be stuck on their own reality show...Or they could be stuck in a crappy, purposeless continuing comic like Pandora...

Here's a bonus--the George Perez cover of this issue:

DC Comics Presents #94 is from 1986

Well at least Lady Quark got a good run in L.E.G.I.O.N./R.E.B.E.L.S - I don't think anything noteworthy ever happened with the other two (and yes, I include New Guardians).
