On December 21, 2012, civilization was ruined as a result of a worldwide nuclear war and many creatures died out. However, mankind survived and entered an age where the strong ruled over the weak, as the few survivors fought over whatever supply of food, women and uncontaminated water remained in the wasteland of the world.
After controlling every single Agent in the multiverse, Gleemur sends out his new army to invade every corner of the multiverse. Multiple worlds are affected, arranging from original worlds to those well-known in film, television, anime and video games. The great invasion eventually drew the attention of Darkor, the sinister villain who decided to form an alliance with Gleemur and tear the multiverse apart once and for all.
