After being destroyed by Sunburst during the climactic battle of WildStorm Rising, Spartan has been rebuilt by Link. Believing the WildC.A.T.s are dead, Synergy offers him a place in StormWatch. And with the team about to go after Despot and the WarGuard, they need all of the help they can get. New recruits Undertow and Pagan also go along on this dangerous mission.
When StormWatch arrives at the moon base, the WarGuard are waiting for them. When Despot is able to convert Strafe to his side, Diva sacrifices herself so that her teammates can retreat. But Spartan is not ready to give up the fight.
This issue features the death of Diva (Alessandra Fermi).
Includes a StormWatch pinup by Darryl Banks and Al Vey.
