So when someone starts killing the small-time super-villains of Kiefer square, it falls to one man to do something about it. Steeljack, a.k.a. the Steel-Jacketed Man. Just out of prison, he wants nothing more than a straight job, a place to sleep and three square meals a day.

He’s not smart. He’s not brave. And he doesn’t want the job. But he has something the people of Kiefer Square desperately need.

He’s hard to kill. He’ll have to be.
