Rescue Crew Story
In 19XX, Amazon Acroyear was found to be responsible for the depletion of resources in the Amazon Rain Forest. Microman Police Keeper found that the Amazon monsters were Acroyear Presidents that were modified by Satan Arden. Microman began to expedite the plan to build the Secret Base in Mt. Fuji. The Secret Base was divided into three different sectors each with four subsections. They are known by their acronyms as CRIM, SHED and GLFT.
Rescue Microman Origin (2002)
In the year 19XX, at the oil field in America, a new geologic investigation was being done. Microman M25X were revived from the soil sample taken from the site.
An asteroid and a comet (remnants of Micro Earth catastrophic explosion) collided with earth and created a crater. The rock structure and stratum changed and turned into mineral bed rich with oil and uranium by the energy from the collision. Many Microman were trapped in these asteroids when Micro Earth exploded and now they ended up on Earth inside these craters.
M102 Chief Jack became aware of this phenomenon and started to investigate every regional underground resources worldwide and search these craters by irradiated them with Spectrum MX ray in hope of reviving these Microman. M28X Microman were revived from crater in Germany, M26X were found in a Canadian crater and M27X came from crater in southern Africa. There were no mining in these energy rich craters but the underground resources began to deplete.
Microman Police Keeper investigated and found that this was an act of Acroyears. Microman M251 Robin was shaking with anger that the Acroyears were invading these areas where he was revived and once part of Micro Earth which could caused major damage and endanger human being.
Since other Microman were busy building the new Rescue Secret Base at Mt. Fuji, Microman M251 Robin decided to organize a troop to stand up against the Acroyear incursion by enlisting those Microman that were revived from these energy-rich crater and gave birth to Microman Rescue Team.
