Synopsis for "The Day of the Gods"Edit

The doctor Daniel Damian, his daughter Margo and his assistant Ike Harris are discovering the God Chamber. Harris is revealing his true name is Ikaris. He's explaining to the Damians that the gods [1] came to Earth to create from a common ancestor three species of Hominidae : the Deviants, the Humans and the Eternals. Ikaris, as an Eternal, was searching this God Chamber since a thousand years to activate the Cosmic Beacon.

Over the Pacific waters, a human plane is destroyed by Kro to protect the secret of the undersea Lemuria. Tode is ordering him to find the God Chamber and to destroy the Cosmic Beacon before the Eternals.
