The launch of the Milestone line of comics, with its culturally diverse mix of super-heroes, set in the fictional city of Dakota, continues as a marooned alien walks among the citizens of Dakota, having created the guise of a conservative African-American lawyer, Augustus Freeman IV. When 15-year-old Raquel Ervin breaks into Freeman's house, she finds more than just another rich guy; she finds a role model. Raquel cajoles him into becoming Icon, the hero of Dakota. Written by Dwayne McDuffie, with Art by M.D. Bright and Mike Gustovich. Cover by Denys Cowan and Jimmy Palmiotti.
