“Kei and his monsters are under a lot of scrutiny from the heroes of the Marvel Universe, government agencies such as S.H.I.E.L.D. and corporate entities like Damage Control,” says writer Cullen Bunn in an interview with Marvel.com. “And it’s not just the forces of good who are paying attention to Kei and his monsters. There is a sinister cadre of villains who are very interested in Kei and his unusual abilities.”
