What's All The Hullabaloo?
A mysterious entity known only as The Cardinal has appeared, threatening stability and world peace. After destroying mankind's first attempt to return to the moon by incinerating the landing craft and everyone on board, his own plans for capturing the high ground were thwarted. The Cardinal's own rocket and secret base in the South China Sea was destroyed by super agent Pearl and her fellow GEM Squad members Emerald, Garnet and Ruby. Tragedy struck however when Pearl's one time professor and lover, archaeologist, Patrick Robertson sacrificed his own life to save hers. Now, The Cardinal has brought his terror tactics to the heart of New York City and it is once again up to Pearl and company to unravel The Cardinal's nefarious plans. Meanwhile, another man with more earthly motivations plots his own action against Pearl or to be more precise her real persona, the heiress Sophia Buccat.
