- I have turned the other cheek too often today. Murder and horror are holy things, and I have not been devout enough. We must have faith in horror, my creatures. It elevates us. When we destroy for our master Damocles, we are cleansed. Damocles loves us best when we kill everything we see. Killing is our prayer. Dr. Tsung...? Let us pray.

Synopsis for "Fire from Heaven, Prelude 1"
The issue begins with the Bounty Hunters entering the Sword's castle, telling him that they have failed to obtain the qeelocke, and begs the Sword not to kill them. Then he pulls out his sword and shoots energy at them, and Damocles enters the room and tells him that Sigma killed his family and the qeelocke is now of secondary importance, and exits.
In London, the Sword and the Bounty Hunters kill people and finds a map on one of the skeletons. Meanhwile, on Gamorra Island, Kaizen tests a Sigma clone by injecting the Gen-Factor. The Sword and the Bounty Hunters arrive and show him the map to Dr. Tsung, the creator of the Gen-Factor, who he disappeared from the military program over two decades ago, and Kaizen's agents uncovered evidence that he's in San Francisco. He also tells the Sword that Winter is in New York.
In New York, just as Winter exits the United Nations Building, he is attacked by the Sword. After he stabs Winter with his sword, he goes to Berkeley, where the Bounty Hunters are fighting the Hunter-Killers. He then kills a few of them, then approaches Sigma and Dr. Tsung and says: "Killing is our prayer, Dr. Tsung? Let us pray".
