Douglas Hamilton wants the Justice Machine to work with him as they are instrumental to his plans for New Atlantis. To that end, a “coincidental malfunction” frees Killgore from stasis, who rampages through New Atlantis. The Justice Machine stop him using Demon’s drug “Edge”. Challenger then agrees to help Hamilton, but only on a provisional basis, and only until the team can get back to Georwell.
