Lauren Greene is a young Detroit woman whose life is turned upside down after her mom saves a newborn life-form, a kind of Artificial Intelligence (AI), from a secretive corporation that intended to use the powerful baby for war. When her mom dies, Lauren is left alone to figure out what to do with the new life-form while also trying to make ends meet in her real life.
Desperate for help, she has reached out to ex-scientist, Jack Dhillon, who has a personal hatred for the AI's creator. Lauren hopes that Dhillon will teach her to work with the AI, but can she convince him to help?
This issue also introduces a new character, Super Bob Sanchez, a truck driver who is not (under any circumstance!) a hero.
