This article does not have a synopsis recorded yet.
- Special Agent Abnett and Dr. Lanning are homages (and puns) to writers and frequent collaborators Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (also known as "DnA") who started the storyline about both Project Schwarz Tod and Project Hope and Glory and gene manipulation, respectively, back in Ninjak #11. Agent Abnett is killed by a lethal injection of "Schwarz Tod" and Dr. Lanning gives birth to the first baby as a result of "Hope and Glory."
