"WildStorm Rising, Chapter 9 of 10"
Continued from Backlash #8.
Continues in WildStorm Rising #2.
StormWatch and Backlash make a desperate attempt to take down Helspont. But even with their combined might, they are not able to stop the Daemonite lord.
As a contingency plan, the U.N. commands Synergy to release the WarGuard to help in the fight. But Despot slays the guards who came to release them and the WarGaurd goes off into space, leaving only Link alive to tell the others not to look for them again.
Meanwhile, in Nicaragua, Savant has found something. The Daemonites, WildC.A.T.s, and StormWatch all show up just as Union is finishing unearthing the ship. But it is not the Daemonite dreadnaught they were looking for, it the the Kherubim ship.
Includes a StormWatch pinup by David Williams and Mike Miller.
