News Clown (name revealed to be Dude Super); a Caroline clone; Savage Henry (regressed to age 20 in this story); Russ Post (regressed to age 10 in this story); Ron Post (with many dopplegangers; nearly all die); an unfortunate kid (dies); four ore miners (one dies); Dino's pet
As the News Clown brings everyone up to speed, Russ, a Caroline and Savage Henry decide to seperate the Loot from Dino's pet without setting off the Death Rattle (a powerful bomb named after an underground comix). Taking the Loot to someone who'll pay plenty for it, its stolen by an young street urchin. As the kid opens the box he releases a Chronovore. Nearly killing Henry and Russ, they manage to shift back losing 10 and 20 years of their age respectively. Now having the ability to shift, the Chronovore follows them and gives chase as they move quickly through many realities. Trapping themselves in a Tapioca Cavern, they are rescued by four ore miners descended from dinosaurs. As the Chronovore catches them, it deages one of the miners to nonexistience. The Chronovore catches up with them, as the six are trapped. Meanwhile, Ron looks for more Rons to kill (his count is now up over three hundred!).
