The 20th Century Boys begins in 1969 when a young boy named Kenji and his friends write “The Book of Prophecy”.

In the book, they write about a future where they fight against an evil organisation trying to take over the world and bringing about Doomsday.

Years later in 1997, a mysterious cult being lead by a man only known as “Friend” has emerged and gained a strong influence over society. A series of catastrophic events begin to occur, mirroring the prophecies made up by the young Kenji.
