In this issue continues the story of The Crow as he seeks out the crooked executives of the evil corporation Biotrope. His intention is to punish those who were responsible for his pseudo-death and the hijack of his fiance’s body.
Technology developed by Biotrope allows them to steal a person’s body by injecting the consciousness of another person into their brain. So a wealthy and elderly or diseased executive could select, say, a young underling in the company and postpone their ‘life’ by stealing the younger person’s body. The result however is the banishment of the host’s soul to a sort of purgatory on Earth until their body is released, that’s where The Crow comes in.
