The story begins with a birth. Wanda Maximoff, also known as the Scarlet Witch, is surrounded by friends and family while giving birth. Her attending physician, Doctor Strange, hands Wanda her newborn twins and declares the birth a great success.

Professor Charles Xavier (Professor X) appears and demands Wanda return the world to normal. She refuses, clinging to her babies, who shatter and disappear. There are no friends, no family and certainly no babies.

Instead, Wanda is resting in a dark room in the devastated mutant paradise of Genosha. Using his mental powers, Professor X attacks Wanda killing her in the process, but causing him to go into a permanent coma.

But, unknown to Professor X, her powers causes dimensional rifts to open all over the world. Known as Rifts, these are various portals opening throughout the world, America seeks the help in order to protect humanity.

With our reality twisting into a change of exsistance some heroes parish trying to help protect the world. Thus the Vanguard Directive is set in motion by Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. in order to help protect anyone on earth from invaders of other dimensions as well as establish diplomacy with these new visitiors.

Quite frankly the rifts aren't going anywhere anytime soon. So, enter a world where nothing appears real anymore. Where dimensions mix with our reality and only 1 dedicated group of individuals are there to protect humanity. Are you ready for the Vangard Directive?
