Prepare For Dawn
The Simian Flu Isn't The Only Thing Destroying Civilization
As if humanity didn't have enough of a problem in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes – Firestorm, there are massive riots breaking out all over the world. This is a result of a news report by journalist/ Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes – Firestorm protagonist David Flynn. It's Flynn who breaks the story of a conspiracy of silence between the remaining leadership of Gen Sys, the private military contractor hunting the apes in the Muir Woods, and San Francisco's disgraced Mayor House. Their goal: to keep the ape insurrection contained and to obtain a live specimen for vaccine development. Hospitals and government buildings find themselves becoming mob central, as rumors of a cure spread as quickly as the Simian Flu itself.

Of course, the mobs demanding answers give way to bigger mobs of general violence among groups that have routinely had it out for each other. Hutus and Tutsis, Sunnis and Shi'ites, Serbs and Croates – all ready to fight it out to the end of the species. A more specific, more local threat that's located in San Francisco is a mob known as the Alpha-Omega gang. moving around all of the quarantine zones with one purpose: to kill all of the infected. This mob is also a clever reference to the atomic device of the same name from Beneath The Planet Of The Apes. Its leader is a suburban teenager who feels he's doing the world a favor by purifying the city. Unfortunately for him, Dreyfus puts him into one of the very quarantines he's been targeting, signifying the start of his turn toward vengeful rule.
