Summary of Hardware #46 (Dec. 1996), from now-defunct webpage at

The artificial intelligence Curtis creates takes on the persona of Edwin Alva. The Alva IA has dispersed into the Internet and can't be destroyed. As Curtis and Alva IA argue, Cheryl learns that Edwin, Jr. and Kim are in the hospital due to the attack of Autopsy and Post-Mordem. Edwin IA gives some clues to Curtis on the attacks and Hardware takes off to get some payback. We see Kim's relatives in a sick, twisted sweatshop. Congresswoman Metcalf helps commission an agency, COVERT, to monitor the superhumans located in Dakota. Hardware tracks down and stops the horrors of Autopsy and Post Mordem. And then Barraki drops an ultimatum on Curtis: make a commitment or she leaves.
