(1) A Mad Scientist, ...
(who looks a bit like Dana Scully and who works for the "FPI", a company like Massive Dynamic, the corporation of the Fringe TV series),

(2) ... a Mystic, ...
(who looks a bit like John Constantine, who has to accept his duty as the "Breaker", that is to say Buffy, and who reluctantly agrees to work for some Torchwood/Watchers Council/X-Files government agency),

(3) ... a Sherlock Holmes, a James Bond and a Lisbeth Salander ...
(who is a fan of Doctor WHO)

(4) ... are all responsible of a Victor Frankenstein experiment ...

(5) ... which created a HAL 9000 with Lovecraftian supernatural powers ...

(6) ... and they must behave like Exorcists and Occult Detectives ... (in other words, Abraham Van Helsing)

... to stop it ! ^^

Did Warren Ellis try to gather as many archetypes as he could in one storyline ? \:\-\)
