Six-part crossover between Valiant Comics and Image Comics published in 1993 and 1994. Instead of issue numbers the issues have different colors (Yellow, Blue, Black, and Red) and there is no particular reading order except for the bookend issues Deathmate Prologue and Deathmate Epilogue. The story features Solar and various Valiant Heroes on one side, and characters from Cyber Force, Gen 13, Youngblood, WildC.A.T.s, andSupreme on the Image side. The crossover suffered from scheduling issues as Image released their issues 6 months late.
The Cyber Force Universe Sourcebooks describe the various heroes, villians, locations and equipment in the Cyber Force world. Each character is also given power rankings which provide a rough estimate of their power levels.

When the SHOC troops flee, they leave behind one of their members, Ace of Blades which got knocked out by Impact. Stryker retrieves Ace of Blades and Doctor Corben extracts the implant in his brain that Cyberdata uses to control their agents. Stryker then recounts his history with Cyberdata and how is it he was able to leave their possession with the help of Stormwatch. After he leaves, thinking that Ace of Blades has the right idea of getting out of this profession, Ace of Blades loses his life in an explosion.
