Wolverine and Psylocke—mutants born with special powers and abilities. Ripclaw and Cyblade—given their powers through cybernetic implants and alien genetic material.

Despite their different origins, putting these heroes side-by-side is like a comic book version of a Doublemint™ Gum TV commercial—double the claws, double the psychic energy blades, not necessarily double the originality! Sadly, it seems to justify the theory that Image/Top Cow characters are just copies of Marvel characters.

However, the story is fast-paced and action-packed, and doesn’t waste space dealing with corporate cross-over problems such as inter-dimensional travel or alternate realities. It begins with Ripclaw decimating an army of deadly ninjas, before he and Cyblade are overpowered by a band of Sentinels. Luckily, Wolvie and Psylocke, experienced with the giant, mutant-hunting robots, arrive to save the day.

A brief back-up story also prologues Cyberforce (Vol. 3).
