Traumatized by his mother's death at the hands of a demon, a scientist-turned-superhero devises a method of taking on the forces of Hell via quantum mechanics.

Drawing from rich comic book superhero stories and integrating them with classic monster stories, Spiralmind strives to create a new world full of adventure, romance, and fantastical creatures. At the core of this world is quantum mechanics. In this classic tale of good versus evil, a scientist will set out on an adventure to discover he is the world’s last hope.

This story takes place in the fictional city of Nineveh, where evil abounds, and the night is ruled by horrendous creatures. In the early morning rabbi Sol Rothblatt, a mentor to the scientist, Ben Landry, is called to perform an exorcism. The possessed Douglas Maxwell is an elderly prominent citizen who is part of the cabal and who called the rabbi to confess. It is the same demon that destroyed the scientist’s mother in his youth who has possessed Douglas. Ben is now grown and has assumed the alter-ego called Spiralmind. The demon has assembled an evil faction whose goal is to destroy Spiralmind's world one phase at a time.

The demon has assigned Governor Dante Evans to lead the cabal. Dante wants to return the Nephilim, an ancient hybrid race of evil supernatural beings and humans to earth. To accomplish this goal without suspicion or prejudice, the human genome must be altered. This purpose is simple, if the human genome is changed to a different form, then the Nephilim will be looked upon as heroes and Dante will be called upon as their ruler. Dante knows that his plan cannot succeed while Spiralmind is free to roam the earth. Dante devises a simple ruse, remove Ben's friends, mentors, and true love, and force Spiralmind to confront Dante on his terms. Dante succeeds in not only breaking Ben's outer circle (his friends), his inner circle (kidnapping his girlfriend Allison Wirth) but break the very core which gives him the power to be Spiralmind. Dante breaks the connection to the time portals.

With Allison's comfort and care, he learns why the demon chose to possess his mother. The demon wanted to see if Ben had the power to create time portals. This knowledge leads him to comprehend what the true origin of the time portals is and how to use them fully. He rebuilds the time portal; he imprisons the powerful demon of his past by putting him in a plasma ball. He returns to confront Dante to save his friends. Spiralmind saves his friends, but Dante kills Allison and completes his wicked plan. Spiralmind is then faced with a powerful dilemma, use the time portal to enter Hell and bring back Allison from the dead or save the earth from ruin.

Spiralmind chooses to enter Hell and rescue Allison.
