Synopsis: It’s the mystery of the new century for the Fightin’ Scientists of Tesladyne! A thief (or team of thieves) is targeting the collected works of Thomas Edison, stealing documents and exhibited inventions from around the country. The only clue to the perpetrators is a broken robot, seemingly reversed-engineered from Edison’s designs and a single tarot card stained with blood. Now the agents of Tesladyne must find out why Edison’s tech is being stolen and re-created before it is used for more dastardly purposes!
When the threat of global annihilation is present there is only one group to call, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. After receiving a warning from a young physicist named Quinn Mallory, the League learns that the future artificial intelligence know as Skynet is hunting down various time travelers from across the multiverse. Using new robotic agents know as “Mavericks”, Skynet has been able to carry out precision strikes across multiple timelines, leaving little evidence of its true goal. Fearing the damage to space/time continuum created from these blatant incursions, Mallory recruits the League to travel to the future and hopefully unravel the mystery of the Skynet Paradox.
