Weapon Zero

Weapon Zero is a science fiction/superhero comic book series created by Joe Benitez and Marc Silvestri. It was published by Top Cow Productions in the 1990s; the production changed hands after issue #4. Weapon Zero launched in June 1995 with a five issue mini-series prologue; this prologue deviated from traditional numbering of each comic in that it started with #T-4 and counted down to #0. It was followed up in March 1996 with an ongoing series. Three astronauts are sent to investigate strange energy readings received from the moon's dark side, they discover. Unrah and Juarez are killed, while Col. Tyson Stone escaped, he is infected with T'srri bio-tech, namely a master logic module; when he returns home, his wife Lorelei reveals herself as a Batai, an alien race, at war with the T'srri. She cleanses Stone of the T'srri mindworm, starting to take over him. Meanwhile, the T'srri on the base begin to awaken from cold sleep; these are humans, abducted over a period of 2000 years. They are now being converted by the bio-tech to serve as T'srri.

Three children and a dog escape this process: Kikuyo, Jamie and Janus are physically altered and gain unique powers, but retain their identities. Back on Earth, Lorelei explains to Stone a little of the war and that new warriors were being sought to fight the T'srri, they are interrupted by N'golth, the T'srri commander of the moonbase, who has come to reclaim the master logic module as he needs this in order to summon the main T'srri force through a dimensional gate. Lorelei is killed. N'golth takes Stone back to the base, attempts to extract the module from his brain; however Stone escapes using Lorelei’s battle-staff, which merges with him to become a symbiotic armour. He teleports to Earth taking the kids with him. N'golth makes preparations to create a new module from scanned data, has Lorelei reanimated as a T'srri. Lorelei tracks Stone through the energy signature of the teleport, attempts to capture them; however they escape, this time hide their signal from her. They locate the crash site of two warships which had collided and fallen to Earth, obtain an anti-matter device on board.

They return with this hoping to destroy the T'srri base, but are recaptured and Lorelei reclaims her armour from Stone. By this time, recreation of the module is complete, N'golth uses it to summon the T'srri Seneschal to Earth, he shows off Lorelei to the Seneschal and explains his intention to convert Stone and the children into T'srri as a unit, with Lorelei placed as commander. He names this unit Weapon Zero. Meanwhile, Janus shape-shifts out of his restraints and releases the others, Stone finds that he can regenerate another version of his lost Batai armour. Weapon Zero damages the gate before the waiting T'srri can come through. To prevent his failure being reported, N'golth attempts to kill the Seneschal, who escapes back through the gate. N'golth is unconcerned. Meanwhile, Stone faces Lorelei, activates the anti-matter device still in her armour. Weapon Zero teleports away. Stone brings the kids to his home. Finding that none of Stone's friends and neighbours know who he is, they camp outside for the night and in the morning meet an army squad led by Major Arbuckle, who have been sent to investigate after the explosion at the site of Stone's mission to the moon.

They are interrupted and captured by a covert organisation calling themselves the Arsenal Of Democracy, who have arrived for the same reason. They bring Weapon Zero to a secret facility beneath the Potomac river and brainwash Stone into working for them; when Weapon Zero break free, he is sent against them. However, Stone has been feigning his indoctrination, they rescue Arbuckle. They surface on the river and are rescued by helicopters; when the army returns to investigate the Potomac, they find no sign the base had been there. Weapon Zero travel to the Kofuku clan territory, Kikuyo's family, in hopes of finding treasure with which they can support themselves. On arrival, they find. After a brief confrontation, they flee, Kikuyo leads them through a secret tunnel, they head to the hills behind the castle, to a cemetery where Kikuyo locates a hidden compartment within a false grave. Instead of treasure they find a samurai's ancient armour. After they camp for the night, Kikuyo slips off alone to think.

She meets an old woman and several more Yakuza, learns that many of the Yakuza here are descended from the Kofuku clan. Kikuyo introduces Weapon Zero as her new family, they depart on good terms. Before she leaves, Kikuyo lets; the grateful clan present Weapon Zero with a Swiss bank account. Weapon Zero are attacked by Lorelei's father Ansh'r in a bid for revenge for his daughter's death; however he turns out to be testing Stone's combat capability, as well as testing his reactions to determine whether he was compromised by the T'srri tech. Having satisfied himself of Stone's integrity, he teleports Weapon Zero to The Regulus. There, he secretly runs a similar test on the children while he explains to Stone the events of the Batai/T'srri war. With this done, he introduces them to Lilith, he informs them all of the threat posed to Earth by a Berserker, an powerful T'srri foe which crash landed in Roswell in 19
