Synopsis
Omega Flight tries to escape from their encounter with Alpha Flight but run into Madison Jeffries in the parking lot of the mall and he dispatches them singlehandedly. The Beyonder has rescued Talisman from Shaman's medicine pouch (in Secret Wars II #4), but Elizabeth is really angry with her father and magically sends the team back to their base without her. Roger Bochs "hooks" what looks to be a more suitable body for Walter than the Box robot but, unfortunately, the body already belongs to the incredible Hulk.

The Beyonder wishes to explore the human concept of desire and picks Dazzler (whom he calls possibly the most powerful mutant to walk the planet) as his new love interest. Despite all of his best efforts at wining and dining, gift giving, emotional manipulation and showing off with his powers, he finds that the only way he can make her fall for him is to control her mind and force her. Finding this to be unfulfilling, he releases her from his control and abandons his quest.
