** Set in 1938, Joseph Joestar is the rough-and-tumble but extremely clever grandson of Jonathan with a natural proficiency in Hamon, and lives in New York City with his grandmother Erina. After learning his "uncle" Speedwagon has been kidnapped by Waffen-SS researchers in Mexico led by Commander Rudol von Stroheim, Joseph goes to save him, only to have to save both Speedwagon and Stroheim from an ancient superhuman being known as a Pillar Man, the race that created the Stone Masks. Stroheim informs Joseph of three other Pillar Men the German forces discovered in Italy, so he travels to Europe, meeting up with fellow Hamon user Caesar Zeppeli (Will's grandson) to stop them, but they have already awoken. Before they kill him, Joseph manages to bluff his way into saying he can master Hamon in a month's time and become a formidable opponent, which leads the Pillar Men to spare him save for implanting time-release poisons that will kill him if he cannot fulfill his side of the deal, while they search for a gemstone known as the Red Stone of Aja which will make them truly immortal. To save his life, Caesar takes Joseph to train under his own Hamon teacher: the mysterious, beautiful, and deadly Lisa Lisa, who knows more about Joseph than she leads on.\\
