Apparently ignoring Judge Dredd's warning, the planet-conquering thuggish aliens, that laughingly call themselves the 'Lawlords, have come to bring their own brand of ‘justice’ to planet Earth.
They also seem to have conveniently forgotten how he saved their @$$es at Lawcon, when the first Galactic Law Enforcement Convention was overrun by multi-organism body-snatchers,capable of perfectly mimicking their host, the c-nidari - see Lawcon (Megs3.76-79,1Apr-1Jul’01), but they are definitely here, perhaps aware of Mega-City One's recent catastrophe, Chaos Day.
One thing’s for sure - they’ll have to go through Dredd first!
