Today we start an exciting, multi-part crossover with the characters of our friend comic, The Ruby Nation.

What would happen if the M9 Girls were recruited by Beagle Labs, a few years before the later became instrumental for the raise of the Apex State in Ruby’s universe? This imaginary story pits both M9 and Ruby characters against the relentless of the Apex State in a test of spirit and loyalty.

“I can assure you, young ladies, that working at Beagle Labs is a life-changing experience.”

And Any’s eyes twinkled blue. The man was absolutely sincere.
