In the year 2069 secret archaeological digs over the last 50 years are going to rock the foundation of what we all believe. The remains of heroes, villains, monsters and creatures that we have long believed to be myth or legend have been found. The remains have been used to create clones which are caged, retrained and forced to fight in the most brutal sport in the world the “Xtreme Champion Tournament”. This sport has become the most watched sport in history and sees cloned fighters pitted against each other and mythical creatures for the worlds entertainment.
In Issue 0 we saw the death and rebirth of Spartacus. Issue 1 picks up right where the last issue left off. Spartacus has been cloned and is now forced to fight a Minotaur. Can Spartacus overcome this destructive force or will his life end just as quickly as it has begun? In this issue the reader is introduced to Oscar Keenan, the owner of XCT and a much older Dr Stein, who’s motives for resurrecting Spartacus are a mystery.
In Issue 1 we were introduced to Oscar Keenan the owner of XCT and his scientist Dr Frank Stein. Although Oscar’s motives seem pretty clear, Dr Stein’s motives are more of mystery. In this issue we will see the development of his relationship with Spartacus, as well as what’s going on between Spartacus and Lozen. Plus we introduce our first villain into the series Baykok, because let’s face it a great hero needs an awesome villain!
In issue #3 Baykok is introduced to fellow fighters in the maximum security prison, while Spartacus and Ragnar continue to build on their mutual respect for one another as fighters. But there is a traitor within the XCT which could see the whole organisation fall. Who is it and what do they want?
