Synopsis:
400 million people fall into a coma, and Kenn's daughter may be the key to solving the mystery... In Salt Lake City, a little girl (Kenn Kawa's daughter) collapses… In LA, the new Challengers have been summoned by Sarah Hargate, their officer manager. All around the world, every 12th person has gone comatose. The Challs analyze data and discover all the victims were born between October 23 and November 21. By the Zodiac, they're all Scorpios. Clay scoffs, Brenda and Marlon are intrigued – and Kenn bolts out the door! Kenn flies to Salt Lake City to his former home. His ex-wife is still angry from earlier betrayals, and now Kenn’s daughter, a Scorpio, is comatose. He’s devastated. He brought the girl a topaz, her birthstone. Oddly, the stone moves itself to a child’s drawing of a fairy tale about a “golden king”, resting on his bosom. Kenn calls the Challs. If the comas are Jungian and neurotic in origin, so really blocked psychic energy, the fetish-touchstones can release the energy… Yeah, yeah. Pursuing this “nutty idea”, the Challs order every victim worldwide be given a chip of topaz on their chest. In the Thomas Range mountains, atop the biggest deposit of topaz in the US, the Challengers lay out a mock topaz-man. Kenn lays his daughter in the center. Nothing happens. Join hands? Why not? Power ripples outward to the topazes on every coma victim in the world. A “golden king” (Prince Topaz from the crossover comics) bursts free and vanishes into the sky. What was that? Angel? Hallucination? It doesn’t really matter, because the coma victims wake up.
