Three students from Academia Island, an elite school funded by the U.N. for the purpose of researching space flight, are tempted by promises of power from the evil Great Professor Bias. They flee Academia Island, destroying two of their classmates in cold blood during their escape.
Two years later they return as officers of an evil organization called Volt. Having changed their bodies, minds and names, they use their new powers to destroy Academia.

Though it appeared Volt's goal was to create the ideal world for superior geniuses and exterminate those with "inferior minds", it's true agenda is to complete the Giga Brain Wave so Bias can achieve immortality while subjugating the human race via mind control.
