Max is bound and determined to save Coalville from itself and he seems intent on doing it alone. He distanced himself from his police connection, Lt. Armadale, who's fallen off the wagon. His former sidekick, Jailbait, had fallen in with his new enemy, St. Lucifer. He feels betrayed by his partner, Alana, who spilled his secrets to the bad guys. And he doesn't even know about his potential new sidekick, who calls herself "Hatecrime" because, as she put it, "I hate crime". All he's concentrating on this very moment is that his oldest enemy is back in town : Plutonian.
