100 Bullets Issue 084
|No. of scenes||1|
100 Bullets is a pulp/noir Series set primarily in modern day USA. It follows several characters with intermingling story strands. Citing from Wikipedia: "The core concept of 100 Bullets is based on the question of people willing to act on the desire of violent revenge if given the means, opportunity, and a reasonable chance to succeed. Many of the first issues involve the mysterious Agent Graves approaching someone who has been a victim of a terrible wrong. Graves gives them the opportunity to take revenge by providing a handgun, 100 bullets, and documentation about the primary target responsible for their woes. He informs the candidate the bullets are completely untraceable by any law enforcement investigation, and as soon as they are found at any crime scene, investigations will immediately cease.
Although all the revenge murders enabled by Agent Graves are presented as justifiable, the candidates are neither rewarded nor punished for accepting the offer other than their own personal satisfaction. Several people decline, but others who accept find varied success or failure. The attaché and Graves' "games" are later revealed to be only a minor part of a much broader story."
In Issue 84, Sigmar Rhone, head of the Rhone Family who is a part of the Trust, heads to a remote safe-house to meet with an informant. The informant is a woman named Kate who works as a bodyguard for Megan Dietrich (also head of a family thats part of the trust). Kate only wants to talk to Sigmar if no one is present. Mr. Rhone´s head of security voices his concerns, but finally agrees if Kate remains handcuffed while she is alone with Sigmar. He is then send on an errant by Sigmar.
Once alone it becomes quickly apparent that Mr. Rhone has an affair with Kate, they soon have sex with her still handcuffed. She tells him about Agent Graves, believed to be renegade, working together with other houses of the trust to restructure it. Alarmed by this he heads out to arrange to evacuate the place and also bring Kate to safety only to find his entire on site security dead. The Minutemen Victor Ray and Remi Rome stand close to the safe house, Sigmars wife and three children cowering between them. As he and Kate (still handcuffed) step out of the house Kate gets executed with a headshot, followed by Sigmars wife, his children and finally him.
