Jerry Mcdowell is a rookie civil engineer in Chicago. While he was inspecting construction site he found the Onus Gauntlet. No one knows where the gauntlet came from, but it bares strange glyphs. Soon after he put it on, he began noticing that some of the people he saw were not human, but strange alien creatures with no mouths and white eyes that he calls “Goons”. Once the creatures noticed he could see them they began trying to kill him. He only survived with the help of the gauntlet, now he is in search of truth.
