Synopsis for "02. Perfect Victim"Edit

Slade is told by Mother Dirt that “Greg Feely” was just a constructed, off-duty persona, that she is his superior officer, and that he is being assigned to a new elite team that he will be commanding. First task of the elite team is to take down Officer Spartacus Hughes, which Comrade-9 does, no thanks to Slade. Slade questions who he was before he joined The Hand and quits.

  • I-LIFE is a nano-species. A prototype slave race with wide applications in microsurgery and genetic design. Bee-like in their simplicity; nothing much beyond a simple brain relay and a camera. A whole swarm of them can be guided anywhere in the body by a skilled surgeon. (quoted from The Filth Vol 1 #2, page 10, panels 1-3)
