Sent to the pit for reprogramming, Warlock is forced to face his inner demons. But miraculously, Warlock is able to do something that no one else has been able to do, resist the programming of the Universal Church of Truth! In order to do so, Warlock must travel through the "door of madness", where he finally realizes the origin of the Magus! Returning to reality, Warlock is greeted by Pip and Gamora, as well as the Magus himself, who reveals his true nature!
