Buddy is traveling through the desert and Phantom Stranger and Dr. Fate approach him when he stops for gas, trying to recruit him to help in the War of the Gods. He turns them down. All the Animals, who still has his totem from #33, sends visions and challenges Buddy's way, including a flood and a group of militant lycanthrope Werebear hunters with a helicopter. Heck of a thing. It reads better than it sounds...
