||The Grandmaster pulls all of the heroes of earth to an orbiting arena to take place in a cosmic game he has set up with the mysterious Unknown; The Grandmaster and the Unknown each pick twelve heroes to compete in gathering four quarters of the Golden Globe of Life; If the Grandmaster's team wins, his brother, the Collector, will be returned to life but if he loses, his life will be forfeit; Every human on earth has been put in suspended animation to give the heroes a good incentive to play; Let the games begin.
