Synopsis:
Continued from last issue... Perdition lies in ruins. Prof is infected with an alien fungus. Swamp Thing watches from cover, is attacked by a wolf, but brushes it off. The wolf is possessed by Deadman, who asks Rama Kushna why he's here. "Follow the Challengers."... Back at Challenger Mountain, the heroes can't cure Prof's disease. Angry, Ace orders Gaylord to take a walk: he walks. Deadman tries a cure, diving in to possess Prof and fighting from within. Prof sloughs the fungus and Deadman passes out... Prof wakes, healthy, and announces Swamp Thing is Dr. Alec Holland, who's wandered off and needs help. The Challs search, but Swamp Thing hopped a freight for Philadelphia. Deadman tries to possess Swamp Thing and bounces - he's already possessed! Deadman possesses Ace and announces Swamp Thing's in Philly... where Swamp Thing rages to the state asylum and the cell of Duncan Pramble, the former Multi-Man. He summoned Swamp Thing telepathically. The Challs are stumped. Red wonders about "short-circuiting the connection." Deadman jumps "between" the two. A psychic explosion frees Swamp Thing and blows Pramble's mind... Back at the mountain, Prof can't restore Swamp Thing to normal. But he can consider Challenger Mountain his home. To Swamp Thing, that means a lot.
