“THE BODY CANNOT FUNCTION WITH ITS LIMBS AT WAR"
Thousands of years ago, the Arashikage Clan were the undisputed masters of ninjutsu in Feudal Japan. When some amongst their number were swayed by the dark magics of the demon known only as "the Beast," they were corrupted, broke off from the Arashikage, and infamously became their own clan - "the Hand." Some time later, members of the Hand rebelled against the Beast's philosophy in favor of the twisted wisdom and advanced "magic" technology of newfound extra-dimensional allies, the brain-like Utroms and their leader General Krang. These ninjas became known as "the Foot." There has been tensions between the three clans ever since...
Recently, the last Arashikage masters Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow engaged in battle with the Hand, and Storm Shadow emerged as the Hand's new leader (see Snake Eyes : Real American Hero #X). Storm Shadow's mission is to redeem the Hand, to make it a force for good in the world, and to completely purge it of corruption - but this doesn't sit well with everyone! Cast out, the Hand's former leader, the Gorgon, has found a new clan, the Foot, and a new master - Oroku Saki, the Shredder! With the Gorgon's vengeful counsel, Shredder sees an opportunity. The Hand is weak and vulnerable in its transitionary period - and now is the time to strike!
Witness the beginning of a battle of ninjas that's been thousands of years in the making! In the end, only one clan will remain!
