Mean while, Mechanon, enroute to supervise the carbon units, comes across Magnum who is in the process of tracking Grond, making sure nothing upsets the hulking giant. Mechanon entices Grond into attacking Magnum. Tired of Magnum's constant trailing him, Grond rips up most of a block and hurls it at Magnum who is unable to avoid it. With Magnum out of the picture, Mechanon proceeds to the park, arriving as War Eagle emerges from the ship. Deathstroke, knowing War Eagle's weakness for cold, stations Frost near the entrance. Frost blasts the unwary Romulan, knocking him out. Answering War Eagle's call from orbit, Blade, Medicine Man and Shadow arrive to find the ship sealed and War Eagle stretched out on the grass. Waking War Eagle, the team uses a maintenance access to get into the ship. In the confines of the ship the four are no match for both Mechanon and Deathstroke but when Mechanon siphons the strength of Grond into himself, it is all over.

Before she could explain her 'feeling' she rushed to the back door and down the stairs out onto the beach. A little girl of about 5 was headed toward her holding an injured puppy. From the back porch, Flashpoint spotted a fiery trail in the sky and suddenly also felt Sharon's bad feeling. Vaulting the railing, he dropped into the sand and raced toward the two figures coming up the beach at Sharon and the girl, both were costumed.

As Crusader attempted to distract a nosy 'flatfoot' Daimon witnessed a Demon Morbane arriving in the alley behind the shop. Crusader's altercation with the police caused an accident on the street and while Crusader stayed to straighten things out, Daimon infiltrated the building. The police officer arrested the woman that caused the accident and while she was in custody, Crusader struck her. At a radio call from Daimon that he had discovered a pentagram inlaid in the floor of the shop, Crusader blew off the cop and entered just as Daimon stepped into the pentagram and vanished. Afraid of missing out on a fight, Crusader followed. What the pentagram had done was teleport the two half way around the globe to a Demon Lair in the mountains of Tibet. Worried about possible Demon reinforcements, Crusader cut the pentagram and rendered it powerless. Warned by their magical security system, the agents at the lair use their first line of defense and blasted the cave between the pentagram room and the rest of the base, bringing down tons of rock to seal the cavern. After several hours of eye blasts, Daimon finally opened the path and the two heroes began their assault on the lair in earnest. It proved far easier then either expected. Even though Crusader was without taken out in the opening moments of the battle, Daimon swept through the base like a tornado, taking out fifteen Demon Mech agents and two dozen other agents. If was here, in this remote base, that Crusader reclaimed the magical armor and weapons taken from him over two years before. When it was all over, the base was destroyed by some sort of self-destruct system with the two heroes barely escaping with their lives. Standing on the narrow rocky shelf Crusader donned his armor and took up his sword and shield, once again ready to fight evil. "Are you comfortable having your armor back?" Daimon asked. "I feel whole again," Crusader replied. "And this stuff will protect you from just about anything?" Daimon asked. Crusader nodded and said "Just about anything." Daimon stepped over and gazed down the precipitous drop to the valley floor so many thousand feet below. "How about a fall?" "Daimon said, spinning as only he could and landing a swift kick on the set of Crusader's armor. The blow lifted the paladin from his feet and hurled him over the cliff. Daimon stepped over to the edge and yelled down “We could have gone HOME if you hadn't broken the damned pentagram, NOW we have to walk!"
