When Janice and Tony entered into a relationship, Tony realised Cord Industries still had potential to be successful and informed Janice her lawyer was giving her bad advice. It turned out Sandhurst was desperately after his fees in order to help fund his brother's recovery from a horrific accident that Vincent himself had caused. One day when Vincent returned to his estate, he found that his brother Basil had enslaved all their servants in order to use their mental energies to fuel a power suit he had designed. Basil Sandhurst became the Controller and on his way to take over New York, even enslaved his won brother.
