In the year 3001, environmental decay has reduced Earth’s atmosphere to an un-breathable toxic gas, killing off nearly two thirds of the population.For the remaining humans, survival is a constant struggle.
Earth has become a harsh, desolate wasteland inhabited by human stragglers.They tough it out on the planet’s surface using their wits, bravery and brute strength to stay alive.Some form tribes and small communities.Others actually evolve.The strongest humans develop into a new species capable of surviving the hostile world --Mutanoids:An ultra-violent, war-mongering version of the human race.The weaker, purebred inhabitants fall prey to the powerful Mutanoid hordes.Either turned into slaves or food, it is clear that humans are now the endangered species.But many refuse to submit to their aggressive counterparts.They fight back, barely managing to hang on, waiting for some bastion of hope.
Hope exists in the form of Omnibus, a huge orbiting space station which houses the remnants of our once great nations.From on high the former leaders of Earth hatch a plan to save their decaying world.They order the construction of a series of massive air scrubbers, designed to replenish the earth’s atmosphere.
To protect their “clean air initiative,” they also bio-engineer an army of human/mutant hybrids called Earth Guards.These elite soldiers are programmed to safeguard the construction of the atmospheric processors.The prototype Earth Guard is a huge, battle-ready warrior known as H-861, code named “Havoc.”
Havoc lives up to the scientists’ expectations and exceeds them.Not simply the mindless automaton that they had designed him to be, Havoc is capable of free thought and self-expression; able to display fear, sorrow, anger and even hatred.
Havoc ultimately proves too difficult to command and impossible to control and is slated for termination. His fellow Earth Guards turn on him but he fights back and destroys them all.
Cast adrift, forced to fend for himself in the barren wasteland, Havoc chooses a new mission:To protect the surviving humans of Earth against the marauding mutant hordes.In doing so he’ll not only insure the fate of mankind but discover his own lost humanity as well.
