H.E.R.O. - Dark Research
by Kevin Rau
An anti-research group causes an experiment to go awry, ending in a disaster for research firm Fargene. People and animals are mutated and run rampant, murdering people and later assaulting another research firm for supplies to stop the mutation.
Aliens arrive near Metrocity, confusing the situation as two separate groups appear. The heroes of Metrocity must stop the mutants and alien pirates.
