Uncle Monsterface, would-be superheroes/rock band/multimedia experience, set out to explore the outer reaches of their mysterious home, Dino-Skeleton Island. They sought a quest (or a bar), but instead found a cave, and fell in. When they looked up, upon the walls they saw the painted tale of the island's ancient iconic protectors, The LAVA MEN.
