"A Plague of Hatreds"
*There has always been a Maximage. Created to protect the Earth, this mystical entity stands for the weak against the strong and against all forces that would pillage and destroy. Centuries ago, a conquering alien race, the Keep, sealed the last Maximage miles beneath the Pacific Ocean in an effort to kill him. A week ago he escaped and tapped a young street urchin, Lori Sanders, as the next Maximage just in time to thwart the Keep as they returned. Nw, with the disappearance of her mentor (who calls himself the Ancient) and as hatred sweeps across the United Stats in a vast, unstoppable wave, only Maximage has a chance to oppose it. But she knows almost nothing about her powers, or the consequences she may face if she uses them. I should know. My name is Lori Sanders and this is my story... *Source: Maximage #3
