Interrupting a human press conference, WOL-421313’s trainers announce he has undergone illegal upgrades.
In the previous issue, WOL-421313, frustrated at the loss of his job and status, decided to invoke the robot right to settle a dispute “metal to metal,” but, this time, it will be "metal to human."

Honeysuckle has arrived in Denver, only to find Dr. Rusted dead at what appears to be at the hands of a racist neighbor. Not one to become a victim herself, she turns the tables on him when he makes an attempt on her life.
In Metal Society, robots dominate the Earth, and humans are extinct—until the robots get bored and decide to reintroduce humans back into society.
As Honeysuckle, Marc, and Templeton walk to Denver, they come upon a police officer who is using convicts to help clear the road of bodies.
Traveling to Denver to let Dr. Rusted know what happened to his wife and daughter, Honeysuckle survives an attack by the Comet Cult with the help of former MMA fighter Marc DeSpot. (The Cult thinks she will turn their leader into the FBI since they claim he foretold the deadly rain.)
