Space Travel, an activity not attempted by the Human Race since their arrival on Hawcross over 300 years ago.  After the dream hass once again been realized, the American Government send the S.C.C. to Hawcross' Moon, Chaybex to rescue a group of Explorers who have gone dark five months prior.  However, on Chaybex, the S.C.C. awaken an Ancient Alien Force simply known as Horrorwing.  Travelling back to Hawcross with the news, the Vile Terrorist Group intercept the news and set their sights on Horrorwing and his potential.  Returning home, Vile issue an assault against both the American and British Governments, threatening to unleash Horrorwing and his powers against Hawcross in an all out War for dominance.


Hawcross has given permission for a Team of Explorers to make the dangerous trip across Sea to the long isolated Japan.  Upon reaching the Country they find a vast lifeless land with no sign of any citizen nor even animal.  The Team discover a small meadow scattered with bones, in the midst an old water fountain.  One of the team, Giles Swanson pulls a single drop and drinks it, suddenly changing and becoming disfigured and insane, he begins to slaughter his friends.  The last two manage to knock him out.

Now over a month later and TANK have dispatched the S.C.C. (Second Chance Criminals) Unit by Helicopter to rescue the Explorers when they are informed they have become shipwrecked on the Coast of Japan.  The S.C.C. reach the ship and find Giles inside locked in a cage.  Giles is now referring to himself as "Hellface" and claims that the Japanese infected him with something and that the rest of his Team are being held prisoner in the Meadow.  Rex Lincoln and Jerry Barbera lead Hellface down to the Meadow where he tries to drink from the Fountain again.  Rex manages to throw him into a nearby Cave where they begin to chase him.  In the Cave; Hellface accidentally awakens a large muscular Humanoid baring a large Wolf-like head.  The creature identifies himself as Horrorwing and begins to use magic and brute force against all three.

Meanwhile, Izzy Bragg has discovered an old man who tells her about Horrorwing and that he was Riley Bates; an American CIA who was spying on Japan during the Owver's Occupation of Earth.  It is revealed he discovered the Japaneese Government were planning on using the Fountain as a means of Dark Magic to kill the Owvers.  They tested it on Riley which transformed him into a "God" where he tore Japan apart with an army he created.  He was eventually defeated and thrown into the Cave where an enchantment forbid him from leaving without someone giving him permission to do so.  Japan remained locked down from the rest of the world where the people just starved and died.  Izzy rushes to the Cave to prevent Rex from provoking Horrorwing where they leave Japan in their Helicopter accompanied by Hellface and the old man.

Back in Hawcross at TANK HQ, the S.C.C. report to their superiors where they explain what has happened.  Meanwhile, the Terrorist Organization Vile have been bugging TANK and learn of Horrorwing.  They make the trip where they make a deal with Horrorwing and unleash him so that he may be their new super power against Hawcross.  He quickly begins to raise his Army and employs Vile to make the first moe against TANK.  Vile send out a group of men all wearing Skull Masks to assassinate TANK and Government Officials.  The men are led by a tall muscular man with pale white skin and what appears to be a Lion's Mane around his neck.

After several assassinations, Rex is sent to rescue British Primeminister Joe Reiley and transport him to TANK HQ.  After fleeing capture through the streets of London, Rex and Joe are ambushed by the Skull Men whome Rex valiantly fights off but is badly injured.  While engaging in a car chase, Rex realizes the car is about to be driven off of a bridge so quickly kicks Joe out of the car and is rammed into a lake.  The Skull Men check the car only for Rex to attack them but is beaten nearly to death.  Joe then bravley jumps into the Lake and begins to fight off the Men, pulls Rex out of the car and blows it up, evading capture.  He then stays with Rex until they are rescued.
