Said career criminal is extorted into working for TheManBehindTheMan, who is hoping to create an army for profit. Faust is enlisted to steal "atomic material" to use during the research.

Eventually, Faust discovers that the invisibility process is both unstable and deadly. It falls to the scientist and various others to stop this evil scheme before the world is truly doomed.
