In the first years of the 21st century, a new type of energy has been discovered. It has allowed for great advancements in cybernetic medicine, but the year is now 2019, and the world's cities have not always reaped the benefits.
In the modern metropolis of Cyber-Wood, there is a vast slum known as Cancer, a lawless place filled with the poorest and most violent of the city's inhabitants. But there is a new project in the works to bring justice to Cancer: an experimental suit of armour that will tap into it is operator's spiritual energy and allow him to peacefully apprehend the city's criminals. Piloted by John Stalker, the initial test should have gone smoothly. But it seems that not everyone likes the way things are going. There is a certain cult (based in Cancer, of course) that intends to bring about the resurrection of the God of Darkness, and what better conduit than poor John. When the test goes wrong and John is kidnapped shortly thereafter, John's girlfriend and a hardened cop are on the trail, but what will they think when they find that their quarry has become an evil god?
