In Stryker's Island Prison in Metro City is Nemesis, where she has been for months now. Unable to free herself, helpless as her company, SharrCorp, is taken over by that upstart Maxine Maxima. The meta-human prison is onto her tricks and unlike before, she has been helpless to make her escape. But all that changes when a Boom Tube echoes in the halls and a red skinned female with rippling muscles steps out.
This mysterious woman easily handles the guards before breaking into Nemesis's cell and frees the villain, putting a command collar around her neck which forces her to obey. Monica asks why free her but no answer is given, only the command to follow. Nemesis has no choice as the command collar begins working and he finds herself helpless to resist it's signals that tell her to do anything this red skinned woman commands. Monica hates being a slave, trying to use her mastery of technology to take this collar off but she cannot. It's like she doesn't want to try to take it off, she is even unable to finish the thought as she steps through the Boom Tube.
The command to find an artifact hidden somewhere in Expendaville has been given by Nemesis's mysterious new master. Doing the bidding of someone else doesn't sit right with Monica as she would much rather be giving the orders and not receiving them. She has no choice, however, since the command collar around her neck forces her into obedience. She can't even form the very thought of removing it.
So here she is as Nemesis begins her search in this pathetic city that somehow always gets rebuilt even when most of it is destroyed. She's been commanded to destroy any obstacle that gets in her way. So, this is what she begins doing as Nemesis begins to search for this hidden artifact. She begins with a museum by flying into it's roof and making a nice big hole as she lands inside. She begins digging with clawed hands, right down into the crypts beneath in the hopes that this place contains the artifact of power.
News and media soon announce Nemesis's threat all over the city and ask for any heroes to come and aid them.
