Comments: Created by Robert Weinberg, Michael Ryan, and Andrew Pepoy.
Esther appeared in two panels, and what you see is what we got...
Coincidence that Esther shared the
surname of Blockade (Parish; with only one "r"), the villain fighting Cable in the main part of the
story? Who knows (see clarifications)...
