Earth is in danger! A race of sentient robots known as the Alloyals move from planet to planet consuming
metallic minerals from planetary crusts, mantles, and cores. After they deplete all the useful resources on
one world they move on to the next. This devastates the worlds they invade, but to make matters worse
the Alloyals have constructed a terrible weapon called the “Sunlight Inhibitor Device.”
The Sunlight Inhibitor Device generates massive clouds of particles that float into the atmosphere and
block out all sunlight. The particles remain in the atmosphere for months, during which time all the plant
and animal life on the planet below withers and dies. Once the planet has been purged of living things, the
Alloyals move in and begin extracting the metallic minerals from the planet.
An Alloyal scout has recently arrived on Earth and deployed the Sunlight Inhibitor Device in an unknown
location, and a full invasion fleet is close behind. The Alloyals have given mankind 24 hours to surrender
before they activate the device and destroy all life on earth. The world’s leaders have called upon the
Infinity Knights—the renowned protectors of peace and justice throughout the universe—to locate the
Sunlight Inhibitor Device and disarm it before it’s too late! The countdown for Earth has begun!
