Panel 1: Wide shot of a large desert, with a H.A.M.M.E.R. rover driving toward a large crater. The crater has been there for a while.
Cap: INITIATIVE FILE: KOMODO
LAST KNOWN LOCATION: MOJAVE DESERT--THOUGHT MISSING AFTER A.I.M. CHEMICAL BOMBARDMENT 3 MONTHS AGO
Panel 2: Commander Hill and a lackey are walking into a sizable cave-like formation in the crater.
Hill: WHAT'S THE THEORY, SOLDIER? NERVE POISON? ANTIDOTE TO THE LIZARD FORMULA? SOME NEW PATHOGEN THAT TURNS YOUR LUNGS TO SAND AND YOUR BLOOD TO GLASS?
Lackey: WELL, MA'AM, IT'S-
Panel 3: Hill and the lackey are just outside a darkened corridor in the formation, with what, from this distance, looks to be a vine coming out of it.
Hill: IT'S A VITAL MEMBER OF OUR INITIATIVE FORCES, SOLDIER!
Lackey: NO, NO, MA'AM. IT'S JUST BEEN INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT TO PINPOINT THE LOCATION, AND THEN ON TOP OF THAT WE HAD TO FIND OUT EXACTLY WHAT THE BOMBARDMENT WAS.
Hill: AND? I DON'T JUST ASK YOU TO TELL ME ABOUT THE PROCCESS, I EXPECT RESU-
Panel 4: Hill is staring, shocked, into the corridor in the rock. The lackey is distressed, but not surprised.
Lackey: THE RESULT KIND OF SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. THE A.I.M. BOMBARDMENT HAD A PAYLOAD OF LIZARD FORMULA--
Panel 5: Wide shot of what's in the corridor: Komodo, who is incredibly gaunt due to being stuck in the desert for weeks, and covered in extra, budded limbs, growing from all over her body.
Lackey: --AN OVERDOSE.
