Who or what is causing machines all over Europe to run amok? And why are members of THE 99 disappearing, one by one? People are panicking, convinced that an invasion from space is creating the havoc. But new team member Hakima the Wise has sorted out the answer with the help of Musawwira the Organizer. The language the invader is using is the hundred-year-old personal code of the Murk, the green gassy attacker they last saw frozen in the Arctic. But all the Murk really wants is to regain his human form, which he lost from working with Rughal. Can THE 99 help the Murk and save Europe from his invasion?
