Ken Connell; John Eberhardt; Rick; Debbie "the Duck" Fix; Myron Feldman; Randy Kellog [The Gladiator] (introduction, villain)
Randy Kellog, aka the Gladiator, a super-dense, super-strong and invulnerable paranormal, is waging a one-man war against the USSR. The Soviets attack him with conventional and nuclear weapons, but to no avail. Ken Connell tries to reason with Kellog, asking him to stop his rampage for fear that it will bring about World War III. The ex-soldier is undeterred and the pair of paranormals battle. Unwilling to kill Kellog, Connell flies him out of the atmosphere and throws the paranormal into deep space, never to die, but to drift in space forever.
