Someone is trying to assassinate Marc Spector, but before he can find out why, the shooter kills himself. Crawley informs Marc of strange experiments being conducted on homeless people, so Marc investigates and discovers that The Company is behind them. Marc contacts an old colleague (and fling), Candace Calder, who still works for them, and arranges a meeting, much to Marlene’s dismay. During the meeting, Marc is shot at, and after taking chase, the assassins kill themselves also.

After the attack on Marc and Candace at the aquarium, the assassins killed themselves rather than talk.  Now Candace tells Marc about implants in her brain, mind control, and the CIA’s plan to create perfect zombie-robot killers.

The red dragon tattoos found on the assassins lead Candace to believe the man behind the plot is Aleister Ravenna, the Red Dragon.  He may have opened a portal to another dimension in the late 1940s, allowing aliens to come through.

As Moon Knight prepares to go to the scene of a crime where symbols identical to those in Candace’s notes were found, he is attacked by Marlene!

After attacking Moon Knight, Marlene is revealed to have the red dragon symbol on the back of her blouse.  She escapes downstairs, but Moon Knight encounters Marlene without the symbol, unaware of what just happened.

As Moon Knight investigates the symbols at the warehouse crime scene, Marlene is attacked at home, and supposedly implanted with the same chip in her head as Candace.  Marc takes Marlene to a hypnotherapist where she reveals that she was abducted by aliens!

Meanwhile, Candace has been kidnapped by Red Dragon, who is still alive and apparently unaged from the 60 year-old photos.  She’s about to be killed when Moon Knight arrives to rescue her.  Red Dragon flees, and as Moon Knight chases, he comes across a real flying saucer!

After Moon Knight frees Candace, Isaac Rosslyn is able to take control of his mind because of their close proximity.  He reveals that the Brotherhood of the Red Dragon, led by Germain Royce, are behind the plans for mind control.

As Frenchie and Marlene approach to help, their helicopter crashes.  Frenchie calls Moon Knight on the radio and the signal interferes with the Rosslyn’s control of Moon Knight, allowing him to break free.  

After defeating Rosslyn, Moon Knight is in for one final battle with Germain Royce, the Red Dragon.

MOON RATING :
