An enigmatic figure surfaces to seize control of a city that fails to acknowledge his ideology. He is confronted by the guardian of the city, whose own ideology directly opposes that of the stranger. The guardian captures the stranger and interrogates him, soon finding the tables turned as the coolly charismatic captive exposes the fractures in the guardians uptight persona. Eventually the stranger is condemned to imprisonment, but he is not thwarted: in an eruption of fire and rubble, the stranger levels his dungeon and walks free. The theatrical flair with which he executes his schemes, the madness he inspires in his followers, the protean avoidance of one fixed identity—in all these ways he establishes himself as a figure of chaos, the arch-nemesis of the city’s guardian.
