From the creative minds of Image partners Robert Kirkman & Marc Silvestri!

Once the hard core is shot into the back of your neck, an assassin’s brain waves can be transmitted into your body–circumventing your brain functions–taking complete control of your body.  When assassins use this technology–your killer can be anyone; your barber, your neighbor or your wife.  They are the best assassins in the world–but what happens when one of their own turns against them?  Who can you trust when your enemy can change his appearance as easy as someone changes a shirt?
