Aboard the supersonic VTOL jet, Sphinx and her hapless team overcome the shock of discovering that their rescuer is a rejuvenated Rughal. Rughal's price for rescuing the villains is their continued help in his relentless pursuit of the Noor stones. Unknown to Rughal, the London triplets (Dave, Dee and Posy) are also aboard the VTOL, and pitch to be part of Rughal's team. The first mission for Rughal's newly reformed gang is to attack Batina's refuge in the Himalayas. Following a fierce battle with The 99, Rughal succeeds in abducting three of Batina's protégés - success which is owed to the extraordinary powers of the triplets.
