The reason why the global disorder was unleashed was due to a major event that occurred back in the year 2023. Back then, the countries China, Russia, Israel, and Japan had detected a giant meteor that was bound for Earth after it swayed off from Jupiter's gravitational pull. The countries alerted countless others of the oncoming threat and they were authorized to respond by arming their nuclear missiles for launching at the meteor.
They launched and all the 15 missiles that were simultaneously fired, struck the meteor with devastating force, reducing the giant rock to meteorites. The danger was not over though as the meteorites now became a meteor shower heading for Earth's course. The US responded with their arsenal to destroy the meteor shower as well, but unfortunately, not all the meteorites were destroyed as they entered Earth's orbit and dissolved into smaller but still lethal fragments.
In a matter of 1 whole week and a half, the fragments rained hell all over the world as various countries were potentially shaken by the ordeal:
The worldwide death toll was an estimated: 17,627,390 lives...
Even though the largest cities in all those countries stood tall as before, they still had a nasty share of the damage like anywhere else that was affected by the meteorites. In turn because of all the turmoil and grief caused by the ordeal, the whole world's political and economical balances began to cripple and sway out of control. Not a day went by without insane riots, a coup d'état, or even a large rebellion or violent outcry because of the sheer insanity of it all.
Now it seemed like one of the few things that could fix the world and hold it together were giant science facilities and corporations devoted to solving the whole conflict with their inventions. Inventions that could help brighten souls in times of despair, that could fend off any crime, that could fight in support of their commanding troops; They were going for a major frenzy solely dedicated to help restore the world to it's original glory instead of sitting and weeping over the damage caused by that soul crushing event.
