The mission in Dubai covers a hotel swarming with Russian kidnappers, trying to stop Project Rising Spirit from retrieving a scientist. But in a disoriented moment, Bloodshot goes missing. Now their most experimental deadly weapon is on the loose, sending Project Rising Spirit to call in the backup plan. The black ops team known as the H.A.R.D. Corps is activated and sent to hunt down Bloodshot before he escapes. Confused, Bloodshot will have to fight his way out of the hotel and take on the H.A.R.D. Corps if he wants to remember his past.
In this latest chapter, the memory implants begin to fail on Bloodshot, distorting his perception. The strain of the overloaded memories and the live combat caused an inevitable glitch in the experiment. While Bloodshot is trying to make sense of his surroundings, he has to battle his way through armed mercenaries. Meanwhile, Project Rising Spirit calls in the H.A.R.D. Corps, a specialized task force with artificial pisot abilities that grant them incredible powers. The H.A.R.D. Corps is lead by Gunslinger, also known as Charlie Palmer. He is a by the powers, tough soldier that sees a mission to the end. Gunslinger, along with Shakespeare, Maniac, and Hammerhead, are assigned to bring in Bloodshot alive, with any force they wish. It’s not like Bloodshot will be greatly harmed, his mind might be confused, but his body can take the damage.
Issue four begins to the total on Bloodshot’s mind and a reintroduction of the H.A.R.D. Corps. Kevin Grevioux begins to deconstruct Bloodshot’s sense of reality while tossing in a few super-soldiers to round him up. The action in the series has been excellent with Bloodshot taking groups of regular soldiers, but the H.A.R.D. Corps pose an even match. There will be plenty of bullets and collateral damage when Bloodshot takes on the H.A.R.D. Corps in the next issue.
