Spiral Zone (1987)

The world's five most elite soldiers called the Zone Riders, fights a renegade scientist named Dr. James Bent - code named Overlord, who has invented a mind-control bacteria that has taken over half of the world with bacteria-infested spiral zones. Overlord uses a hijacked space shuttle to drop his deadly Zone-producing Generators across half of the Earth.

Millions of people are trapped in the dark mists of the SPIRAL ZONE and become transformed into Zoners with lifeless yellow eyes and strange red patches of Zone Bacteria growing on their faces. Because they have no will to resist, Overlord makes them his slave army.

His followers known as Black Widows and those were: Bandit, a one-time terrorist of Middle Eastern origin; Duchess Dire, a well-known reputation as a criminal and troublemaker, wanted in half a dozen countries for blackmail, grand theft and other crimes; and Razorback and Reaper, basically a couple of run-of-the-mill criminals who saw an opportunity for power. Thanks to another one of Overlord's inventions, the Widow Maker, the Black Widows are immune to the hypnotic effects of the Zone. However, due to prolonged exposure to the Zone, their eyes have turned yellow and their bodies are covered in Zone Bacteria. Inside the Zone, skies were always dark. The humans were marked by yellow eyes and lesions on their skin (animals were also effected) and there were also such markings on buildings. His other plans were: Destroy the forces of good selected to fight them and conquer the world by bringing everyone under their control with the Zone-producing Generators. The Zones fed off human energy which was why Beck did not kill anyone inside.

With major cities Zoned, the nations of the world put aside their own differences in order to fight off Beck, now called the Overlord, and his Black Widows. However, only five soldiers using special suits to protect themselves from the Zone could do it. While easy to destroy, Zone generators were impossible to capture as they were booby-trapped. There was also the fact that Overlord would drop more generators onto remaining military and civilian centers and thus the Zone Riders had to stop those plans, forcing a long and bitter standoff.
