This is it, Warren Ellis' masked hero masterpiece begins right here! Following directly from the #0 issue, the politics of the President have forced Horus to take matters into his own blood-stained hands. But he acted on his own and now his old team is going to be hunted for the crimes Horus committed. The dangers of being a hero have taken their toll on Tom Noir. He lost a leg, and hasn't used his powers in many years as he drowns his problems with booze. But when a man-mountain named Vince, with far more advanced powers, shows up to find out how Tom is connected to his teammate Horus, the action kicks off and the team known as the Seven Guns is thrust into chaos as an epic conflict starts to form.
