“An alien virus that has ravaged planets throughout the galaxy has arrived on Earth and landed in the black market.”
That’s the basic premise, except you add in that all this was BEFORE it was stolen by a teenaged girl who is on the run (and seems to know more than the people after her, or us…) and somehow connected to a group of other young-folk who are using dead-drops (espionage trick of moving intel, etc – look it up!) to move it around. Except that now the authorities are on to them and under coordination by Neville Alcot, first XO-Manowar (last ish!) was set in pursuit of this brash young woman.
This is what happens next. With Archer. The new hero brought in to chase down said tough-cookie teenager.
