The year is 2167 and mankind has populated Mars. Somewhere on the Red Planet in a hidden lab the Martians are developing a new weapon known as "Idolo", which incorporates the mysterious mineral Metatron -- a combination that causes Idolo to become frighteningly powerful and gain a mind of its own.

Will he be able to break free from its stronghold, or will it end in a bloodbath that consumes both the Earth and Mars?
