Could H.I.V.E. have finally turned Otto Malpense into an evil super-villain?
The leaders of the world’s villainous forces are being picked off one by one in a series of mysterious attacks, and when Dr. Nero finds out it is Otto who’s behind them, he has no choice but to issue a “capture or kill” order. Raven and Wing are desperate to save their friend and soon find themselves in a danger-filled race against time to track Otto down before other assassins get to him. Their pursuit takes them to a secret facility hidden deep within the Amazon rain forest, where they face a deadly mysterious operative.

Light flooded into the compartment. Wing walked down the ramp behind her, the heat hitting him like a wall as his eyes adjusted to the daylight after the gloomy interior of the

Immediately the stone slab began to retract, hiding the secret bay once more behind a foaming white wall. Finally, huge concrete doors rolled shut between the bay and the waterfall, deadening the sound of the raging torrent and sealing the hidden facility securely.
