Synopsis and Plot Summary

A story about the investiture of the gods that follows Yang Jian, Ji Fa and Jiang Ziya as they face off against the evil powers led by King Zhou, Da Ji and Shen Gongbao.

In the late years of Shang Dynasty, King Zhou indulges in carnal pleasures and debauchery. He listens to the instigations of Fei Zhong to covet official Su's daughter Su Daji (Wang Likun) for himself and launches a war in her name. However, Da Ji has already been possessed by a fox demon. She enters the palace and commits horrifying atrocities through the hands of the king. Meanwhile, Ji Chang, the duke of the West, has been diligently caring for his people and continues to grow the forces of Xi Qi.

The Heavenly Senior sends Jiang Ziya (Yu Hewei) to assist Ji Chang in his efforts to defeat King Zhou. Jiang Ziya learns of a man named Yang Jian (Luo Jin) who is born with a third eye and godly might. Knowing that Yang Jian would one day have to make the choice between good and evil, he takes Yang Jian in as his disciple to inspire his kindness and sense of justice.
