Taking place after the events of Rune/Silver Surfer #1, Rune returns to Earth to an island off the Mediterranean Sea where he is both hungry and ticked. He looks a lot older and is stuck with a soul gem in his forehead. Meanwhile, Gemini has joined forces with Janus and Alexander in order to find Markie Van Morris. They break into Rune’s Aztec temple in Central America and equip Gemini with the armor they find there. They know that finding Rune will lead them to Markie and nothing will stop them. Meanwhile, in the Rockies, the hunter known as Shuriken learns of her new target.It all ties together by the fourth issue, by which point the action is picked up in Rune (the second series) for it’s short–lived run.
