War has been raging on for a century there is a new breed of soldiers. Specially trained to kill and fight till' death.

Each containing a different level of super strength, but only one gear is born with the sign of the skull, me, Cpl. Wolf."We need to get to the top of that volcano," my squad leader, Master gunnery sergeant (MGSgt) Banks yelled. As our squad was fighting on the planet of Voultron fighting the Krill, on this corrupted planet that is overflowing with virus canoes, volcanoes that are created for biological warfare. The sand is red, dry and hot."Give me covering fire!" I yelled over the whistling sound of the bombs containing a virus that will only attack unknown species."Ah, crap!" MGSgt Banks yelled, "I'm shot!" I peered over the bumpy edge of the rock to see how bad it was; he was hit in the neck by a sniper. I crawled to him to inspect more closely, where he was shot.

Pffft was the sound of a bullet flying past us and hitting a gear behind me! "God dang it see, now clean up his body" I ordered wiping the blood off my back."Sir, look," yelled a young, African soldier pointing to a massive army behind him.I looked to where he was pointing at to see the swarm and their scarab tanks that stand over fifty feet tall in the shape of a crab like creature."Hell yeah!" everyone shouted as the scarabs were...
