Bob O'Bryan, cast out of It's body because of the mental energy expended, uses Felix Simon to drive him closer to the body of It so that he can again take control. He takes control of It, and he along with Fin Fang Foom (who has shaken off Dr. Vault's control) battle Lord Granitor to save earth. Bob O'Bryan, who appears to be dead when his mind enters It, is driven to the hospital by Felix. When Lord Granitor uses his transportation device to try to escape It destroys the device which also destroys Lord Granitor.
