The behind-the-scenes mystery of Phileas Fogg, who in 1872 went around the world in 80 days on a wager, but did so to accomplish a secret task set by his new valet Passepartout: to stop the American genius Barbicane from flying to the Moon. Along the way Fogg finds his match & mate in Aouda, a strongwilled inventor surpassing even the feats of her brother Captain Nemo. Fogg and his newfound friends must evade a global gauntlet of dangerous foes in service of a cabal of villains out to obtain the secret of atomic energy, who they must identify and thwart. They find the most agile of allies in the elderly detective Auguste Dupin, the ex-slave Thomasina Maker (whose supersonic rocket plane is pivotal to Fogg and Passepartout's plans), and the French newspaper correspondent Michel Ardan (or is he something more?). All their skills are needed to defeat an unprecedented armada of ironclad warships, submarines and airships in the Atlantic. Fortunately, Phileas Fogg has his watch, and Passepartout his comb.
