The Cult of Entropy tries to destroy the Man-Thing, the one creature capable of repairing the Nexus of All Realities, and Howard the Duck, who carries a fragment of the Nexus inside him. However, the cult's plans go awry when the fragment merges with Man-Thing, decimating their ranks, but also withering the swamp creature.
