Synopsis
Yron underestimates the Krydos and they kill him, but his last dying act is to bring back Stel to life, whereupon Stel retrieves his power ring and defeats the Krydos.

Indexer Notes

Story continues from the previous issue. The writing purposefully is ambiguous as to whether Stel is brought back to life, merely reanimated by the Green Energy, a construct of Green Energy, or is some kind of amalgam of Stel and Yron.
