Kent V. Nelson, nephew of Kent and Inza Nelson, is a down on his luck Las Vegas psychiatrist participating in a video for _Rumble Bums_, fighting with Burr, a former patient. He gets thrown in a dumpster where the helmet of Nabu has landed, and he places it on his head to keep warm in the pouring rain. This shows him the entire mystical realm and puts him against Negal of Charn, who abuses all those with whom he comes into contact. Nelson isn't sure he believes any of it, and gets a job as a janitor at a motel, but he keeps answering the call of the helmet.

The story has little to do with Countdown, but was presumably titled thus for commercial reasons. Steve Gerber wanted the volume to be titled _More Pain Comics_, but the small logo that appeared on the original stories (which is completely absent here) was not large enough to make the cover title, and Gerber not surviving to see the completed volume, the driving force for using that title was eliminated.
