Synopsis: In the year 2069, what has been uncovered in secret archaeological digs, transpiring over the last 50 years are going to rock the foundation of what we all believe. The remains of heroes, villains, monsters and creatures, that have long been believed to be myth or legend have been found. The remains have been used to create clones. These clones are caged, retrained and forced to fight in the most brutal sport in the world, the “Xtreme Champion Tournament”. This has become the most watched sport in history, and sees cloned fighters pitted against each other, as well as well known mythical creatures, for entertainment purposes.
Introduction: In Issue 0 we saw the death and rebirth of Spartacus. Issue 1 picks up right where the last issue left off. Spartacus has been cloned and is now forced to fight a Minotaur. Can Spartacus overcome this destructive force or will his life end just as quickly as it has begun? In this issue the reader is introduced to Oscar Keenan, the owner of XCT and a much older Dr Stein, who’s motives for resurrecting Spartacus are a mystery.
