It's another take on Magnus, Robot Fighter.

Like the other Gold Key revamps set up in The Sovereigns #0, it's tangential to its source material.

This Magnus doesn't hurt robots with her bare hands.

She helps them with her words. She's a psychologist for robots.

It's the year 2020. Those robots, the servants that humanity built, want freedom.

They've achieved a measure of it- they have a world for their consciousnesses to thrive in.

Those consciousnesses are stifled outside that world.

Magnus, Doctor Kerri Magnus, works to help them express themselves within the constraints of the human-robot compromise that is society.

She takes her work seriously.

She went home that night, had a drink, went to sleep, and had a nightmare.

She was woken up by knocking on her door, which turned out to be the NYPD.

" You've kept the details out of the news. "

She went into the Cloud World after Frederick.

Later, the two cops discussed the state of things.

" .. we won't be finding out any time soon.. "

(The ominousness of the issue's ending befits the tone of that setup.

The whole issue does an excellent job of setup.
