QUOTE: "Y'know, it must be the uniform. I've never met a Manhunter who wasn't eager to sell out for a couple of bucks." —The Flash

SUMMARY:  In the aftermath of the Durlan invasion, Wally West finds himself a celebrated hero in Cuba as well as a close personal friend of President Fidel Castro. To celebrate their triumph over the alien conquerors Castro has schedule an extravagant twenty-first birthday party in the Flash's honor. Wally isn't in the mood for celebrating, however. His father was killed while battling the Durlans and the young hero is guilt-ridden over their last words. What's more, the scarlet speedster has learned that Mark Shaw, the costumed bounty hunter known as Manhunter, plans to undertake a daring mission for a group of Cuban rebels; Manhunter intends to kidnap Castro and remove him from power! Torn between Castro and his own self-interest, Wally struggles with the murky ethics of his situation. Unfortunately, by the time he's made up his mind to act it appears as if Manhunter has succeeded in his attempt at a coup and the Cuban rebels behind it all are revealed to be stranded Durlan shape-shifters!
