The God Squad; Silver Surfer, Sersi, Venus and Daimon Hellstorm; are battling the Chaos King at the homes of the Kami, the pantheon that the Chaos King came from. The battle isn’t going well and the God Squad is forced to retreat with Amadeaus Cho, Thor and Hercules staying behind.

The portal that Hellstorm opened is blocked by the Chaos King. They arrive at a tunnel between dimensions where one of the Kami, Inari Okami, lies dying in the tunnel. He was trying to deliver a message to Temple above Yomi’s Gate. The God Squad agrees to follow the Fox guide to the temple to deliver the message.

The fox guide leads them through a couple of realms where they speculate on why they are able to survive the attack of the Chaos King. They decide that they walk the line between mortal and immortal, not gods, but not mortal either.

They find themselves in the Wakanda pantheon land and are confronted by the Panther God who agrees to travel with them.

They arrive at the temple and are greeted by Susando, God of the Sea, and Tsukuyomi, the Moon God. They explain how their father, Izanagi-No-Mikoto, released the Chaos King from his prison in the hope he could be reformed. They thought if the Chaos King could be reformed then they could break the never ending circle of death and rebirth. Tsukuyomi says that they were right, but not in the way they imagined.

The Chaos King was imprisoned in the Yomi, the realm of the dead. The God Squad are brought to the well to Yomi, which is capped. They discover Inari Okami and Amaterasus alive but under the Chaos Kings control. It was all a ruse to get the God Squad away from the major battles.

The God Squad attacks the Kami, who break the cap on the well and release the demons from Yomi. Venus has to summon the Kraken, breaking a vow she had made, in order to help them. They are able to escape but the Panther God stays behind to keep the denizens of the Yomi from following.

The God Squad escapes but don’t know where they are going.
