Story intro

Three weeks have passed since the kidnapping of three young girls orchestrated by Kevin Wendell Crumb, who was dubbed as "the Horde" by the media due to his dissociative identity disorder which produced a dozen identities. One of the girls was Casey Cooke, who survived an attack from the one of Kevin's personalities, "the Beast", who allowed her to escape because she was "pure" and had experienced suffering at the hands of a sexually abusive uncle. David Dunn (a superhuman vigilante dubbed "the Overseer" by the internet) and his son Joseph track down Kevin to an abandoned factory where he has four cheerleaders hostage, but David is confronted and attacked by the Beast. Their battle is stopped by a group of police officers led by Dr. Ellie Staple, who places both men in Raven Hill Memorial Mental Institution. David's destined foe and terrorist - Elijah Price / Mr. Glass - is also being held there for bombing the Eastrail 177 train 16 years ago (the train crash of which David was the sole survivor and exposed his superhuman nature). David and Kevin are placed in separate rooms, each with unique security measures to prevent them from escaping or posing a threat. David is placed in a specialized room which would blast water to him, which he considers his Achilles's heel. Kevin is then placed in a room with "hypnotic lights" which will force one personality to change to another once activated. Staple explains that her job is to convince those who believe they are superhuman but in fact they are simply deluded figures; she tells them she has been given three days to convince each of them of this, otherwise they will be sent to trial. Staple gets help from Elijah's mother, Joseph, and Casey, who all visit at different ocassions, but fail to convince them. As part of her final evaluation, Staple brings the three men to a room together where she tests David and Kevin's psyches. That night, Elijah escapes his cell to research about Kevin but is discovered by Staple who performs a prefrontal lobotomy on him. However, Elijah had already sabotaged the machine earlier, in anticipation of what will happen if he gets caught. Elijah is returned to his cell but escapes again after killing his caretaker Daryl. He then breaks out Kevin and allies himself with the Beast. Elijah contacts David and announced his plan to reveal the Horde at a new skyscraper in the city of Philadelphia, where he also plans to blow up a chemical company unless David stops the Beast.
