Issue 18, "Endings... Beginnings"

Writer: Paul Kupperberg
Penciller: Graham Nolan
Inker: Timothy Dzon

written by William Sherman (

The DP head home to bury Arani, and get a hero's welcome in Kansas City. Scott tells Rhea of his illness.

Suddenly, Garguax's forces attack. Larry is injured while trying to take off in a helicopter. It is this accident from which Larry is recovering at the beginning of the Morrison run. Negative Woman is disrupted by some sort of ray, and Val awakens, sans Negative Being, in her body. Garguax is killed when the Chief uses a laser satellite to destroy his ship, and his forces leave.

Later, as the DP leave Arani's graveyard after her interment, the Gene Bomb is detonated. Dorothy Spinner was present at the funeral, by the way, in the background.
