Crime and despair. Violence and fear. The city is under siege. Years ago it had a protector, the Venger, who brought his justice to those who brought evil. Now he is old and memories of him have faded from the minds of the people. But the enemy and his brand of evil have returned and no one else understands. He will be needing help this time. A new Venger will take up the fight. But how far will he go to destroy the enemy. And will he destroy his family in the process?

Following last issue's devastating attack by the mysterious Black Mercy, Michael Cabot has been rushed to the hospital with serious injuries. Now what will be Alexander Cabot's- the Venger from years past- next move as he attempts to solve the city's ongoing crime wave. Is he correct, has his long dead foe returned for the ultimate revenge?
