Together Operative 1001 and Black Venus infiltrate the secret facility of Hexagon to rescue Operator 5 and get to the bottom of the shadowy organization’s plan to replace leaders around the world with doubles in an attempt to start World War III. However, they find far more than they expected.
Along with showing us the fate of all the missing heroes, including American Crusader (who offers some insight into the group’s experiments), the latest issue of Codename: Action offers the infiltration of a secret base, a mad scientist (who apparently is far more than just Hexagon’s head of the doppelganger program), torture, and plenty of action.
Codename: Action #4 ends with a late reveal and a cliffhanger that suggests Dr. Thorpe has his own agenda outside the plans of Hexagon as the mini-series moves into its final two issues with our heroes coming face-to-face with the series’ true face of evil. Worth a look.
