The Fiend possesses Doug Herman, a weak-willed nobody that possesses some hatred for Dragon. The Police try to enlist The Mace into the Police Force, who is also sought by The Vicious Circle. He declines both offers. The Dragon has a date with Rapture, where he is visited by Vanguard. It is revealed that the Frank Darling that was incinerated by Overlord was in fact Lurch in disguise. After his date, the Dragon is attacked by The Fiend, who is again defeated and leaves the body of Doug Herman. Meanwhile, Overlord learns that Cyberface has been resurrected by the Cyberdata company.
