It really should not be called Spotlight: Metroplex
No, it should be called Floodlight: Metroplex! ;D
I'm more than a little intrigued about Metroplex's mission, especially as this is set before AHM, which effectively means there could have been something pretty big brewing in the background of AHM that we didn't know anything about.
I agree that for a Metroplex comic, his role was scant, but I suspect that this comic may be due for a reassessment when whatever is its mysterious happening actually happens.
