A double sized crossover event unlike any before! Two teams, seven centuries apart, united by one woman's diabolical plan. The Chairwoman from "Cyber Force" and "Aphrodite IX" had a plan to recreate the world in her children's image. Things didn't go as planned. Featuring the present day team of Cyber Force and the 28th century Aphrodite IX, this story lays the origins of new comic series "IXth Generation" launching in 2015.
