Synopsis for "Lethal Force"
Magog is in Sudan where he finds a vacant village and the grisly scene of a cart carrying dismembered arms. This is the second incident he had seen so far. He then tracks down where the perpetrators have gone and finds soldiers leading a caravan of armless villagers, who are each implanted with a small device to their heads. Magog proceeds to kill the soldiers and apprehends a device from one of the villagers, which he identifies as "Wonder Tech".
David Reid recuperates at his hotel in Omdurman where he contacts his friend Axel Baines, who has foremost knowledge in Wonder Tech and describes it as Meta-associated items which were salvaged and illegally sold by criminal enterprises. As told by David, the devices were controlling the villagers who were already dead in which Axel hasn't found anything on any technology in his database that could raise the dead and has his doubts that Intergang is involved. After bidding goodbye to Axel, David is visited by Alan Scott, the Green Lantern, who is concerned and not on a good foot of David's recent actions. David explains the Wonder Tech to him before Green Lantern leaves with spite over David's killings.
David returns to Ordell, West Virginia where he reunites with Axel Baines, who appears as a gas station attendant but is actually a gifted intellectual and David's closest friend and intelligence analyst. David also befriended local waitress Lauren Weaver, who suffers a physical abusive relationship with her husband and receiving secret combat training from David to defend against her husband.
Meanwhile in Los Angeles, a weapons deal over advanced weapons is conducted in a gang member's home; however, the dealer reveals to his client that he is not the client, which he and the gang, including his family are killed by men in advanced stealth-suits. The dealer was working for his actual client to eliminate the gang as a demonstration to make it appear as a broad daylight takedown.
Back in Ordell, David and Axel haven't made any leads regarding the Wonder Tech. David then gives Axel the device he had pried from the villager to examine it.
