When Black and his team are sent to investigate a foreign ship orbiting near the Harmonica spaceport, they're killed onboard by a homicidal humanoid weapon built in the image of a beautiful woman. Several years later, Black is reborn through a miracle of science on an unfamiliar planet called Neon as part of the Rebirth Project. He's mysteriously set free and flees to Starlight City, where he lives the frenzied life of a hunted fugitive who's been genetically "modified."
Though he has no memory of his escape, and the memories of his previous life on Earth are blurred moments at best, Black crosses paths with several misfits who have their own stories to tell. He pieces together a tale of unlikely friends pit against the powers that be, fending for day-to-day survival.
