Indexer Notes

The characters have been identified by the cover's proximity to the events on page ten, although Clint's mohawk and visor are not discernible on the cover. They could arguably be Jackie and Chuck (and the monster).

Synopsis
Bruce's body is found by his brothers, who fail to revive him. When they leave to mourn, the medical lab is cut off and a hulking figure works feverishly over Bruce's body. Castro leaves and an alarm sounds, forcing Chuck, Clint and Jackie to evacuate without their brother's body. The undersea complex explodes and the brothers are separated. Jackie is marooned on an island. Chuck is picked up by a Russian ship. Clint is picked up by a mafia crime lord.
