'Liberty for the Innocent, Punishment for the Guilty, and Justice for All'... ...words the Civil Ministry meant to reassure the people now ring hollow. In the aftermath of Dark Hour there is no justice. Ivan Jast has been brought up on charges of treason, a pawn in a political battle between Earth and Gaoroes. Eva Katona sits alone a psychiatric ward dealing with the grief and horror of what she has done, and Michael Traush is still missing, presumed dead. Despite this, the Hunters must carry on. With the increased threat from dimensional portals their directive has become even more important than ever. But dimensional portals are not the only new danger they face. The Crisis takes an unforeseen turn when three beings, claiming to be superheroes from Earth's distant past, appear in the heart of the Compound. They have come to keep the portal technology from falling into the wrong hands, but their identity and true motives are called into question when the Hunters discover a striking similarity between these three and an out-of-date holographic serial.
