Brainwashed! Agent Stephanie Shelley returns to MI6 with a new assignment from the lethal Lazarus Bale: assassinate Director Pilchard! In her darkest hour, will the UK's top spy carry out her enemy's dastardly command? Plus: who is the beautiful, battlin' buzzsaw named Phillipa Westlake? FC, 32pg
Words by Tony Bedard, art by Mike Perkins and Andrew Hennessey. Charles Basildon, MI6's top secret agent and counterespionage weapon, is apparently dead. Shot to death by the international criminal Lazarus Bale while he and agent Stephanie Shelley were trying to spy on Bale's evil plans. The albino madman seeks to unleash ancient, deadly biological weapons created by the Atlanteans and then rule over the remnants of humanity while hoarding the only cure. In order to stop MI6 from interfering, he hypnotizes Agent Shelley and sends her back to the spy network's Carnaby Street Command Post with a pre-programmed mission: Kill Sir Robin Pilchard, head of MI6!
Meanwhile, Pilchard has his hands full with another femme fatale: the irrepressible Philippa Westlake, only daughter of Lord Westlake, and a hard case of the first degree. During a simple training exercise she breaks the knee of her sparring partner because he held back. And she lacks any sense of discipline or respect for her superiors. In fact, Pippa's on her way to being sacked when the mesmerized Agent Shelley breaks in, killing and maiming all who stand between her and Pilchard. When Philippa saves Sir Robin, she not only earns her job back but is also promoted. Meet the new "Charlie" Basildon!
