Now with Armageddon approaching, it is up to the android Spartan, the hulking Maul, the female assassin Zealot, the mercenary Grifter, the shape shifting Voodoo, the living weapon Warblade and the precognitive Void to stop the invasion and save the world.
ABSOLUTE WILDC.A.T.S collects WILDC.A.T.s #1-13, 31, 50; CYBERFORCE #1-3, WILDC.A.T.s/X-MEN: THE SILVER AGE #1; WILDCATS ADVENTURES #1 and WILDCATS #1, as well as behind-the-scenes sketches, concept designs and variant covers in an oversize slipcase.
