DC's Captain Atom Has Been Resurrected in Dark Crisis
Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #5 just resurrected one of DC's most powerful heroes with no explanation as to how this occurred.Superheroes constantly die and come back to life. Some have gone through this cycle of death and rebirth on more than one occasion. Seemingly, this is the main focus of the entire Dark Crisis event. With the Justice League dead, the next generation of heroes has had to step up. The story has been exploring what that looks like, as well as teasing the potential futures of the DC Universe with these heroes.
The head of the Federal Network Agency, Klaus Müller, spoke of a "clever compromise". The nuclear power reserve had long been wrestled. Habeck had only proposed after stress tests of the network operators to continue the southern German nuclear power plants until mid -April in order to be able to use them to stabilize the power grid. Initially, the Greens had completely rejected a further operation beyond 2022.
In the Chancellor letter, Scholz also announces an "ambitious law to increase energy efficiency". The coal phase -out in 2030 in the Rheinische Revier should also be implemented legally. The agreement had only received a narrow majority at the Green Federal Congress because the Lützerath lignite village is still to be dredged. According to Scholz, the Federal Government will also create the prerequisite for the addition of new, hydrogen -capable gas power plants to guarantee supply security.
