i read all the witness reports to the second enquiry. The Hood was old lying too deep in the water and technically uncared for. She should never have been at sea. But such is war. Briggs memory fails him. It would seem she was hit several times. The fore turret, the conning tower where two hundred sheltering sailers were killed, the nest on the top of the fore master was struck, showering body parts onto those below. The hit on the quarter deck was from the German cruiser. The hits that caused the explosion were from Bismark. One went into the 4 inch magazine another into the y turret. What part the 4 inch guns were plan to take is unclear. Too small to harm the enemy but enough ammunition to set of the main gun magazines. The bottom of the ship was blown out. Given the terrible state of the engines they probably exploded too. Sadly the Hood was shot to pieces and was doomed the moment her admiral drove her head long into the path of the German ships. With two capital ships and two heavy cruisers a divided attack would have been a better bet like the cruiser admiral who defeated the Graf Sprae earlier in the war. Terrible to report but a savage vengeance for years of idleness and mismanagement by the government. But not as savage as the loss of Glorious which is almost forgotten. With a similar loss of life – over 1200 souls and for nothing. So sad. But we ought now to face down the insulting lie that it was a lucky shot from plunging fire. 16 degrees is hardly plunging. Fishers original concept of a fast lightly armed capital ship was insane – which cannot be denied as 4 of them just blew to pieces taking nearly 5000 sailors with them.
After dealing with the Raptor issue, New York City was plagued by a villainous duo called Bride and Groom. Nightwing begins pursuit of these two after some grisly murders, including that of the Lorens family (close friends of his after the Raptor incident). Dick grew obsessed with finding them, not knowing how far he was willing to go to take them down. Eventually, he formed a makeshift team with some "villains" to find them. They located them, and after killing some of his "team" Nightwing chased them to a cave, where Bride began a cave-in and the two were trapped there.
