So, with this page we clear up the last of the initial mysteries: who is Wraith, and who is Poltergeist. It was kind of annoying to me to have to be coy in referring to either, so now I don't have to be. Yay!

Also, Poltergeist has a point: the cops will eventually figure this out. James Cotell only needed to hear about how Poltergeist fought when she was posing as Wraith to know something was up. It's a simple deduction, one that trained detectives will of course notice.

This is the end of this issue. What did you think? Let me know in the comments below. And I do want to know: did you guess who Wraith was beforehand? I don't feel I set up the mystery right (as in, I don't think I had the thing be solveable before the reveal), but at least I never contradicted anything.

As to the detectives figuring out who Wraith is off-panel: yeah, I am aware that it feels a bit like a copout, but the fact is that with the focus moving over to the superheroes, time with the detectives would have to be reduced. However, I'm sure you can understand how they would be able to, since they were almost there already and the only bit of confounding evidence can easily be explained just by interrogating those apprehended about how Wraith acted in each occasion. To be honest, I just didn't think there was any way that real investigators wouldn't find out. It's their job to figure out these sorts of things.

Poltergeist sure went all-out in her theming, didn't she? This is another aspect I personally like about this concept. While Wraith and Poltergeist can be considered my Batman and Robin respectively (in case you didn't see what I was doing with the latter), it's the Robin character that has the money here (and is the obsessive one), not the Batman. There are other changes to the dynamics I also would want to show, but they're not in this issue.
