The year is 2180. The place is Los Angeles. The situation: Larry “Looney Larry” Napier (along with his gang of criminals named the Sons of Loki Motorcycle Club) is an evil crime syndicate holding the City within the palm of his hand. With the severely crippled Los Angeles Police Department not able to do anything to stop him, at a last resort, the Police send in a previously-fired but hard-nails Cop Victor “Ironfist” Stormrage to take him down.

Bored with the already chaotic world, Looney Larry steals a prototype time travel device from a scientist named Dr. Nigel Black. Looney Larry travels through time with his goons to cause destruction and rip the world apart. With the help of Dr. Black, Ironfist is sent through time, attempting to correct the course of history and stop Looney Larry once and for all.
