Genesis Noir plays as a metaphorical narrative between a film-noir style detective movie and aspects of the creation and potential destruction of the universe. It plays out the events of the Big Bang, thankfully not the one with Penny and Leonard, as a metaphor between a broken romance between No Man (representing time) trying to stop Golden Boy (representing energy) from killing Miss Mass (the mass of the universe).
