Looking to put a stop to Wick’s assault, Buffalo and Bill turn to the crazed killer Calamity. Of the Three Bills gang, Calamity was the worst. Unhinged and deadly, Calamity is a ruthless force that leaves behind many bodies. She’s a gunman that isn’t afraid to make noise and will crumble anything that stands in her way. As one of the people responsible for John Wick’s tragic incident in Mexico, he is familiar with her methods and will have to lure out to take on safely away from innocent people. But for Calamity, there’s no mercy for anyone that gets caught in the crossfire and is looking to rattle John as much as possible before they can settle the past.
Issue four reveals some insight to Calamity, the mysterious cowboy hat wearing and mentally unstable gang member that has been locked up for a while. The Three Bills were hesitant to use such a person, due to the casualties she racks up. But John’s skills have proven to be more than they can handle, so they release Calamity to even the fight. Meanwhile, John is recovering from his injuries at the Continental Hotel. His last attempt to assassinate Buffalo and Bill had left him with a few wounds that only manages to slow him down. John is a freelancer without any ties to groups and this unknown figure has stirred a lot of trouble. It’ll be only a matter of time before John makes too much noise for some people to take, and they will make a move to either take John under their control or take him out completely.
Greg Pak introduces a rival character in Calamity as she a contrary to what John represents. Instead of the quite and calculated honorable hitman like John; Calamity is loud and reckless, indiscriminately attacking people to fulfill a blood lush. It’s been a long time since Calamity has seen John, the last time was when a young John Wick escaped a fiery explosion by Calamity’s rockets. Her actions indirectly lead to John to become the man he is now, and all he wants is to settle a personal demon. As the series heads to the fifth and final issue in the series, we look forward to one climactic battle that will have John and Calamity facing off, and we show how John became an underworld legend.
