Built by Locomotive Breath, The Program was a vast machine, occupying a huge chamber under the Slorene Parliament Compound. It worked by draining human life-force and using it to empower another, usually Locomotive Breath or Volkvhy (who seemed to be using it as a substitute for a mystic artifact like Ember’s Triptych).

Locomotive Breath received an e-mail from the Tabissara, informing him that due to the circumstances of the civil war, they were forced to deny him further access to The Program. Later, Volkhvy learnt that Locomotive Breath had returned to Slorenia with the aid of War Machine, and was after The Program. Volkhvy sent Black Brigade to prevent Locomotive Breath from reaching it.

While tracking captured Dudaks on their way to becoming Targoth, Spider-Woman came upon the Program and was captured by Volkhvy, who hoped to use her power in The Program. Before he could do so, Ember broke into the Program and slew Volkhvy. Realizing that Ember would be a terrible a dictator as Volkhvy had been, Force Works fought him, and struck him into the Program, which absorbed his power, then exploded, unable to transfer his energy into someone else.[1]
