In the future there is no more natural death, no needs unfilled and everything you could ever want is yoursÉas long as youÕre one of the chosen ones to live in this new Utopia and youÕre willing to subjugate yourself to these new self-proclaimed gods with ÒIXÓs emblazoned on them. Do the ends truly justify the means? Is a utopia built on genocide worth the price? Aphrodite, Velocity, Hades and the other Nines establish fiefdoms in this new world and attempt to rule. Their internal clashes have escalated, but they are forced to put that aside as they face off against the relentless hordes of the Darkness. The sins of the past have come to claim those who would pretend to be Gods. Collects IXth GENERATION #1-4 & IXth GENERATION: HIDDEN FILES #1.
