    Indeed. I guess they all vanished in the jungle while the Team just stood there at the end.
    That's obviously Shimmer since you can see part of the tattoo on the side of her face through her mask. I just hope the comic renders it consistently, since I noticed that in the show it tends to vary and even appears to not be there at certain points. And Shimmer's appearance means that the big guy is Mammoth by default.

    As for Santa Prisca, it's known for being somewhat corrupt (in the comics at learst), and the Team may not have had any authority to apprehend anyone there. So it's possible that even if the cultists were taken in, they may have been let go immediately after.

    To be fair, this is based off a TV-PG rated TV series where one of the villains
    Spoiler:
    kills the girlfriend/wife of a main character, even if it is off-screen.

    The operative phrase there being, "one of the villains." Bad guy. We expect him to do evil, awful, nasty things. The hero doing them is more problematic.

    That being said, I got the sense from the story that Hal didn't kill the guy as much as disrupt him. I think it was the feeling that the guy was so much more powerful than a single GL that Hal couldn't kill that guy if he tried. But that's a grown-up reading this comic and the ambiguity isn't something I care much for now that it's pointed out.

    Overall, I wasn't too impressed with this comic. The GL story was OK but felt somewhat inconsequential and borderline non-sensical. The YJ story was so slight that it was completely unsatisfying. The Superman Family story was cute, but just a kid-friendly recap of Superman. Well done for what it was, but also extremely well-worn material.
