An illiterate mechanic, John Torkelson joins the Harbinger Renegades, a loose organization of renegades, only after he meets Kris Hathaway, the girlfriend of Pete Stanchek, a psionic of extraordinary power who awakens his enhanced strength and durability. Initially very hostile and distant, John soon proves that he is a loyal and valuable member of the team.

HistoryEdit

Nothing Beats A BudEdit

Orphaned at a young age, John Torkelson grew up hoping to be strong enough to get even with everyone who wronged him since he was a child, a wish that came true when Pete Stanchek awoke his great strength. Drawn into joining the resistance by his attraction to Kris Hathaway, John became romantically involved with her and their affair resulted in the birth of a son as strong and loyal as his father ever was. Ultimately, John died in battle protecting his friends.

Children of the Eighth DayEdit

On June 6th 1991, John Torkelson was at work in Sonny's Garage when Pete Stanchek, his girlfriend, Kris Hathaway, Faith Herbert, a plucky fangirl with the power of flight, and Charlene Dupré, a fiery Southern Bell, came looking for him. At first, John sent the kids away, but when he heard that three of them were girls, he turned his attention towards them. When Pete mockingly asked him if he wrote a letter to the Harbinger Foundation, a non-profit organization that provided an environment where people with special abilities and talents could achieve their full potential, John told him to leave before he beat him up, and while Pete dragged Kris and Faith away with him, Charlene stayed to flirt with John.

That night while they cooked dinner, Faith thanked John for buying them dinner and he told her that she had to eat because she was a growing blimp and Charlene laughed at the put down. After dinner, Charlene seductively told John to take her for a ride, but he only had eyes for Kris and pushed her aside. When John walked over to Kris and asked her if she missed Pete, she told him that she could tell that her macho attitude was a cover up to hide the shame he felt over his ignorance. Mockingly, John told Kris that she did not fool him either and he knew that she was not an ice queen, then he told her that he was going to sleep in the car and invited her to join him so maybe they could both learn something.

As John lay beside his car and watched while Kris and Charlene fought over him, Pete returned to the mill and pushed them apart. When Pete accused him of working for the foundation, John told him that he worked for Mur Atlantic, but then he forced himself into his mind to learn the truth and realized that he was wrong. Enraged, John lifted his car over his head and threatened to kill Pete, but Faith made him realize what he was doing and he set it down. Rueful, Pete apologized to John for acting like a kid and told him that the things he saw in his mind of what people did to him when he was kid were unspeakable.

Suddenly, as Pete jerked back and fell to his knees with his hands on his head, Li Yan, the Eggbreaker code–named Thumper, leapt out of a chopper and landed besides them. As Kris urged John to help them protect Pete and shielded him, Faith tried to shake off the Foundation Troopers as they repelled down, but she was too slow and they shot Kris in the back. Enraged, John charged against Li Yan, but she punched straight through his car. When Li Yan grabbed a boulder to disable John, Charlene set her ablaze and saved him. After Faith rendered a Harbinger who suppressed Pete’s abilities unconscious, Pete recovered.

After Pete dispatched the troopers and destroyed the helicopter, Todd Bevins, a foundation executive, contacted him through a trooper’s radio and warned him that he had crossed the rubicon and declared war against the foundation. Before he ended the transmission, Todd urged Pet to realize that they had the power to destroy him, and told him that if he cared about his friends he would not drag them down with him. Troubled, Pete loomed over Kris and had no idea of what to do, while John wanted to take care of Kris and then rip the troopers’ throats out. While neither Charlene nor Faith wanted to stay behind, the latter said that being a hero was not as she thought it would.

The Root of All EvilEdit

On the early hours of June 6th 1991, John Torkelson, Pete Stanchek, Faith Herbert, and Charlene Dupré barged into the Saint James Hospital ER and demanded medical assistance for Kris Hathaway. While Pete demanded to see a doctor, John followed him with Kris. When Lawrence Heyward walked into the ER, Pete threatened to rip his lungs out unless he helped Kris, but he dared him to do it and warned him that he did not work well under death threats. When John told him that Kris was barely breathing, Pete went inside Lawrence’s head to make him treat her, but when realized that his pushing him could screw up his skills, he pulled out as fast as he went in and left him with a headache. In the hope that he could help Kris, Pete gently ripped the bullets out of her back while the others watched in dread, and after he was done, Lawrence could see that she was in shock and offered to help her long as they behaved.

Tense hours later, Lawrence told Pete that Kris’ condition had stabilized and that she would be fine. When Lawrence asked Pete how he did what he did, Pete offered to return someday to pay their bill and tell him. Despite the doctor’s objection, Pete lifted Kris as gently as he could and left before the people that shot her would find them. Soon as they came out of the hospital, a group of snipers took a shot at them, but Pete shielded them. When Faith and John tried to steal a car, Lawrence tossed them his keys and told them to be careful with it. To Lawrence’s amazement, Pete levitated the vehicle and it flew out of sight. Shortly, while the kids debated where to eat dinner, Lawrence called them on his car phone and told Pete to take a map to his summer house out of the glove box and meet him there.

While Lawrence took Pete out to the veranda, Faith asked John and Charlene if they wanted to play Super Mario Land, but John mockingly told her to go advertise tires and hurt her feelings. As Faith walked out, Charlene offered to fetch John another beer and threw herself at him, but he coldly told her that he could have her anytime and then swilled his beer.

Two days later, Pete and Faith told John and Charlene that they followed an address he took from a trooper’s mind to a specialty clothing store, and got the owner to give them three boxes full of custom-made uniforms. When Pete suggested that they raid the worldwide headquarters of Eighth-Day Inc., a front of the Harbinger Foundation, John insulted him while Charlene refused. Confused, Pete told John that he thought he wanted to help him get the guys who shot Kris, but John told him that he was not going to go look for trouble with him watching his back. Just then, Kris told John that she could see through him and could tell that, while he had Superman’s body, he was a lonely boy who never had anyone on his side. She then told him that he liked being with them, but he could not believe anyone could accept him, so he tested them to prove that they did not care, but they were already the closest thing he had to a family and the reason he was against the raid was that he did not want them to get hurt. As she came into the living room, Kris told John that families could support him, but they could also let him down, that they can be there for him but he could also loose them. As she told John that he had to be brave, Kris told him that if he was one of them he was going on the raid wearing one of the costumes.

Very early the next morning, Pete took the others flew to the worldwide headquarters of Eight-Day Inc. in the World Trade Center in New York City aboard Dr. Heyward’s car. On their way there, John asked Pete what they were after, and as he told him that they were after anything they could get, he reminded them that Dr. Heyward said they could only say with him until Kris was better. While John and Charlene waited in the car, Pete and Faith went inside the building and found the Eight-Day Inc. office on the 47th floor.

Shortly, the four of them took the elevator up to the office, and while they looked around, Pete wondered how they came up with the name Eight-Day and Charlene told him that it came from the Bible in reference to God’s creation of man. Just then, Faith uncovered a hidden elevator behind a bookcase and they decided to take it down to the bottom floor. On their way down, Faith hoped that they would find a secret sub-basement crawling with armed guards and deadly super-foes where Harbinger trained people like them and kept a danger room where they honed their powers to combat readiness, and her zeal made Charlene very nervous.

When the doors opened, John and the others came upon a large group of troopers who were expecting them. As Pete ordered a retreat, John lost consciousness and collapsed on the floor. While Pete used Charlene to disarm the troopers and kept four Eggbreakers back with his telekinesis, he drenched John and Faith with water from a pool to wake them up. When John woke up in a rage and went after the troopers, Rock, the Eggbreakers’ leader, challenged him and John drowned him in a puddle of water until he passed out.

After Pete dispatched the troopers, he challenged Toyo to fight him one-on-one without his troops, but then Weasel distracted him and Toyo escaped. Shortly, after the four resistance fighters boarded the elevator to escape, they came out into a penthouse office, where, while Pete brought the car up to them, Faith found a wall safe and John broke it open. As they flew back to the Heyward summer house with countless wads of cash, Pete and the others serenaded Kris over with phone with We’re In The Money.

One Small Step...Edit

On July 6th 1991 at the Heyward summer house, John Torkelson and Kris Hathaway sat in the dimly-lit gameroom where she could teach him how to read away from prying eyes, when then Faith Herbert came looking for them to leave for the airport. Awkwardly, Kris asked Faith to wait for them upstairs and gave her the wrong impression of what they were doing. When Kris and John came upstairs from the gameroom, Charlene joked that they disappeared for a long time and Kris told her that they just lost track of time. Though Lawrence offered to take them to the airport, Pete flew them there in a car that he bought them with the money they liberated from the Harbinger Foundation. During their flight to Seattle in first class, while Kris showed Pete an article about ESP, a flight attendant asked John to put out his cigarette and then obliquely made fun of him when he used a shrimp fork to eat his meal. Upset, John bent the fork and accused the attendant of trying to make him feel ignorant, but then Kris told him that people like here were ignorant and asked him if it matter to him what the attendant thought or what she did, and while John did not say anything, Pete looked at them suspiciously.

That evening in the Lake Union Mall, John and the others met Ax, an obnoxious self-professed computer wizard with a natural affinity for electronics who Faith called after they found his bulletin board notice to help them break into locked-up disks they took from the foundation. When Ax took them to his father’s company, he impressed them when he figured out the keypad and let them in. An hour later, as Ax was unable to break into the disks’ encryption and said that he would only try once more and was keeping the money, Kris asked him why they called him Ax and he told her that it was because he played his guitar as if he was wired to it. After Pete and Kris talked for a minute, he touched Ax in the head and, all of a sudden, he heard an incredible buzzing coming from the computer.

After the disks told Ax how to open them, he opened a file labeled extraterrestrial landing sites, and while Kris thought it was a joke, Pete believed it was a code word, and Faith suggested they go check out one of the addresses. When John asked what they were going to do with Ax, Faith said he was dangerous and could tap into NORAD and start World War III like in War Games, while Kris asked Pete if he could un-pop him and he told her that he could make him forget what happened. Pleadingly, Ax asked Pete not to take his ability away as he had spent his entire life looking at the world through a keyhole and now the doors were wide open. While Faith thought they could harness Ax’s power for good and Pete believed he deserved a chance, Kris and John were certain he was insane. When Pete asked her what she thought Charlene did not want to voice her opinion, but he coerced her into voting and she said everyone deserved a chance.

That night, John and the others followed a map to a clearing by a waterfall in the Olympic National Park, and while they looked around before it got dark, an electronic hum that came from a tree told Ax that the stump concealed a landing beacon inside. At Ax’s suggestion, the group stayed the night to wait for something to land, unaware that the Spider Aliens, a race of blood-thirsty extraterrestrial aliens, were watching them. After Faith returned with burgers from McDonald’s and they ate dinner, John wondered how long they were going to wait and Ax accused him of being afraid of the dark. While Faith told Ax that he did not have to be a jerk all the time, he suddenly got the feeling that something high-tech was coming their way right before a Spider Might opened fire on them.

After the smoke cleared, John and the others laid safely behind a shield Pete raised when Ax warned them. After John destroyed the tank while Pete covered him, Ax shot one of the aliens in the back with his own gun while they ran away much to the other’s chagrin. Coldly, Ax said that no one would miss the alien, then he pushed a button on a unit in the alien’s belt that had been screaming at him that activated a subterranean hangar, and as the earth trembled, a Spider Alien Transport Vessel emerged from the ground. As they made their way inside the ship, Kris asked Pete if he really thought that it came from another planet, and while Faith was certain that it did, Pete suggested that they leave before the aliens came back. Frightened, Charlene agreed with Pete and begged John to leave with her, but Kris told her to stop being a wuss. Enthralled with the alien technology, Ax activated the ship’s engines. Though John threatened to rip Ax’s throat out unless he took them down, he told him there was nothing he could do.

Two hours and thirty-six minutes later, as the vessel headed to a Spider Alien Moonbase on the dark side of the moon, John threatened to make Ax pay for taking them there. After a docking clamp pulled the ship inside the alien base and they exited the ship, Pete suggested that they look around for a way to open up the docking bay again so Ax could fly them out, but then they all lost consciousness and collapsed. While John was out cold, a group of Spider Soldiers took her and the others to an exam funnel, while Rexo, a Vietnam veteran the aliens transformed into a bionic enforcer, grabbed Ax and said that he might be useful.

Five months later, after Ax woke up Faith from stasis to keep him company while he helped the aliens build a ship big enough to get them out of their solar system and Pete rendered him unconscious when she rejected him, he and Faith woke up John and the others from stasis and they left to look for their ship. Moments later, they left Ax cold on the floor while they went to look for their ship, but when they turned a corner, they ran across Rexo and the Spider Soldiers, who blocked their path to the ship. While the soldiers swarmed over John and bit him, he shouted for Charlene to help him, but she cowered in fear and could not move. Enraged, John called her a slut right before he lost consciousness and Rexo snared him with his tendrils.

Though Rexo offered to let kill Pete and the others, Ax told him to let the aliens eat them, especially Charlene, who reminded him of all the girls who thought they were too good for him but let any jock or preppy have their way with them. Pleadingly, Charlene told Ax that she wanted him to go with them and that she honestly thought he was cute. As she told him that she could have had her if he wanted to, Charlene threw herself at Ax’s feet and said that she could make him feel good. As Rexo ordered the soldiers to drag her and the others away to have their blood drained, Charlene burnt Ax’s testicles and stood up to confront Rexo, who ordered the soldiers to kill her.

Where The Love Light Gleams...Edit

Inside the Spider Alien moonbase on the far side of the moon, Charlene Dupré lit herself ablaze and warned Rexo to stay away from him, but he called her a slut and threatened to skewer her for what she did to Ax and carve all her goodies off before he killed her. Frightened, Charlene warned Rexo that she would burn him, but he mockingly said that all the heat she was making would cook her friends before it did him major damage and then slapped with a blade that cut her face and told her that he hated girls and had no use for them since he was 90% bionic. While Rexo joked that Charlene made him a favor when she burnt Ax and made him more like him and now they had a lot more in common, she softened the floor beneath him and fell through it.

While she freed John and the others from the tendrils, Charlene hoped she had not burned them before she figured on making the heat go into the floor. Worried that they were not safe, Pete said that they had to find the ship that brought them to the moon and ordered John to bring Ax with them. Shortly, John and the others boarded the vessel, and, as John warned Ax to take them home or he would take his face off, he activated the autopilot. When Ax fell on his knees in excruciating pain, Pete wondered if his injuries were severe and Kris, Faith, and Charlene looked at them and gave him first aid. As the ship neared Earth’s atmosphere, Pete worried that the aliens were waiting for them where they found the ship, so he carried it the rest of the way home, a feat that impressed Faith. On their way back to Savannah, John tossed Ax off the ship near Waycross, Georgia, and though Pete thought that it was kind of nasty to drop him in the middle of nowhere when he was hurt, the others told him that he was a traitor and no better than Rexo.

After Pete found Dr. Heyward’s house, he hid the ship beneath the water in case they ever needed it. As they flew inside the house, Faith lamented that, without Ax’s electronic power, they could not fly the ship, while Kris wondered why it was so cold outside. As they went in and Pete noted that the house looked closed for winter even though it was July, Faith shivered and said that it did not feel like July. While Charlene started a fire, John told her to get him a beer, but she refused and told him to get it himself because she was busy. When Faith turned the television on to watch Star Trek: The Next Generation, an ad for the Parisian that announced there were only three days left until Christmas made her realize the aliens kept them in suspended animation before they escaped and they had been gone for over five months. Dismayed, Faith told Pete that she missed her Senior year, but he did not know what to say other than to apologize. As Kris noted that they were all exhausted, she suggested that they figure what to do the next morning. The next morning by the pool, as Kris taught John how to read and he struggled with the word beautiful, she helped him pronounce it correctly and he kissed her.

Two nights later in Decatur, Georgia, John stood outside Sonny’s Garage gazing at the boarded up windows when Joe Bob drove passed him and asked him where he had been. Concerned, John asked Joe Bob what happened to Sonny Mur and he told him that Sonny died asking for him, confused over why he left after he raised he raised him from a child. Saddened, John barely heeded Joe Bob when he said that they put his stuff in the shanty after Sonny made them promise not to touch anything in case he came back for it and that he did not know why he cared. After Joe Bob left, John locked himself in the shanty to mourn his foster father.

The next night while John was asleep, Ax, Donald W. Tietz, a sociopath with sadistic tendencies, Eugen Mulholand, an extremely hostile anti-social recluse, and Frank C. Treese a paranoid-schizophrenic, menacingly approached his shanty and blew it up with a bazooka. As John ran outside engulfed in flames, Ax and his cronies pilled up on him and beat him up. While John tackled down Eugene, Donald skewered his heart with an electromagnetic javelin that inflicted him with great pain. Though he was injured, John swatted Donald out of his way and then ran into the woods to escape. Exhausted, John stopped outside a Christmas tree lot to rest, but when Ax and the others caught up with him, Donald and Eugen continued their assault.

An hour later, while Ax and the rogue Harbingers beat John down in the empty tree lot, Pete knocked Ax out just as he was about to hit John with a hammer. When Boba Fett, Ax’s rabid dog, attacked Kris, she knocked him off her with a rock, but then Ax pushed her against the ground and threatened to kill her. As Ax threatened to molest Kris with his hammer, John pulled her off her and she kicked him in the testicles. With Pete’s help, the resistance flew away and left Ax and his rogues in the ground while the police arrived on the scene.

The next morning, as Faith passed out Tylenol, ace bandages, and mercurochrome as if they were Christmas gifts, Kris wished everyone a merry Christmas. When Pete noted that Christmas with his friends was the best he ever had, Charlene asked God to bless them all.

King's CrossingEdit

On March 1st 1992 outside the Chrysler Building in New York City, John Torkelson and the Harbinger Resistance gathered to discuss their discovery that Toyo Harada hired Karl Breznoff, the mercenary called Sniper, to attack Aric of Dacia, a 5th Century Visigoth lost in the modern age who possessed the Manowar Class Armor, the most powerful weapon in the universe. When Faith Herbert told the others that Toyo arranged to meet Aric in New Orleans, Pete Stanchek proclaimed that Toyo’s presence in the States was their opportunity to stop him before he became a dictator. When John Torkelson reminded the others that Toyo played for keeps, Kris Hathaway told Pete that he had to kill Toyo and reminded him that he was the only one of them who could take him on. While Faith worried Aric might try to stop them, Pete told her they would politely ask him to step aside because they were the good guys.

That night in New Orleans’ French Quarter, John and the renegades watched as Toyo took Aric and Ken to the La Bas Jazz Club and kept their distance while they waited for the right time to strike. Shortly, while Toyo, Aric, and Ken listened to Jack Boniface, a jazz player, the renegades waited in the bar for Toyo to become inebriated before they attacked.

Later that night, as Toyo took Aric and Ken to Bourbon Street, John and the others attacked. While Toyo called his guards, Aric attacked John, who punched him through a wooden fence. As Aric donned the Manowar armor and dispatched John and Charlene, Pete deflected his lasers and tossed his in the air where Faith tackled him. As John grabbed Aric’s ankles and tossed him against a shed, Charlene climbed down to check up on him, but then Aric used a broken water main to douse her flames. In a huff, Charlene evaporated the water around them and created a curtain of steam that hid Aric from her and allowed him to punch her out and defeat John and Pete. Suddenly, Kris drove up to the club and the renegades escaped in her car.

As their car sped out of the city, Pete told the others that they would get another chance to get Toyo, but that they would have to lay low for the moment until he gave them another opportunity. Troubled, Pete worried that they now had two powerful enemies to deal with.

All For One...Edit

On March 5th 1992 in New Orleans, John Torkelson and the other renegades took a team photograph, a picture damaged by a beam of light which covered John Torkelson that Pete remarked would remind them of their first vacation together. While Kris Hathaway paid the photographer and clarified to him that they were not students, Charlene Dupré said that she had never been on vacation, except for a revival meeting in Tallahassee with her mother, and Faith Herbert told her that she had been on lots of vacations and they were the best.

After Kris reminded them that they were meeting at a Mexican restaurant for dinner, John went to a strip joint, Pete went off on a walk, Kris and Charlene went to an art gallery, and Faith flew away shouting Up, Up, and Away despite Kris’ concern that people would see her.

Later that day, while John was watching the polar bears in the zoo, Faith started him when she swooped down from the sky to ask him what he was doing there and he grabbed her. When John accused Faith of spying on him and threatened to rip her face off, she told him that she was not following and she wanted to see the zoo. After John let her go, Faith asked him why he was there when she thought he went to a girlie bar and he told her that he had never been to a zoo, but he heard other kids talk about it and he wanted to see what the big deal was. As Faith told John that there was nothing to be ashamed of, and that there was nothing wrong with having fun, he confessed that his foster father locked him in the smokehouse when he caught him playing. Lost in thought while Faith told him that he could do anything he wanted, John broke a fence. After Faith told John that he did not have to be macho around her since she was always doing kid stuff, he agreed to go with her to see the monkey house.

That night in the restaurant, while Charlene asked John about the girls in the topless bar, Faith told her that no one wanted to hear about a bunch of dumb dancing girls and asked her to tell them about the art gallery. Just then, Pete got an image in his mind and sensed that Harada was on his way there. While Pete pondered that something must had happened that shook Harada and made him let his guard down, Faith pointed to a TV just as a report about an explosion that destroyed one of the tallest skyscrapers n Dallas came on. Silently, the renegades listened as the reporter explained that, while the police cordoned off the area, even from his position he could see the incredible destruction, and that, in his opinion, though the police refused to comment on the possible cause of the catastrophe, he believed that they just did not know what happened yet.

Hours later, aboard a charted aircraft over Dallas, Pete asked Captain Smith, the plane’s pilot, if he might recognize the facility they were looking for if he showed him what it looked like. As Pete used his powers to insert an image of the research facility into his mind, the captain told him that it was a factory on North Road a couple of minutes from the airport that he always passed on his way home. After Pete told Kris that he found what they were looking for, he got the captain to fly them right over it. Minutes later, much to the captain’s surprise, Pete and the renegades jumped from the plane.

As Pete lowered the others down to the facility, he said that the whole time they were in New Orleans he felt Harada like an itch he could not scratch, especially after their run-in, and Kris remarked that this time they would scratch him for good.

Once on the ground, Pete and John deal with the security guards while Charlene melted a lock on a door into the facility. During the fight, as Pete commented on the lack of security in spite of Harada’s presence, Kris mused that, if Harada traveled there as abruptly as he believed he had, that maybe he could not bring his usual army.

As the renegades broke into the sub-basement through a hole that Pete ripped on the wall, Pete ordered the others to take care of the guards while he dealt with Toyo. As John pushed a scientist and threw a bodyguard across the room, he tossed the guard’s Uzi at Faith.

While Pete and Toyo silently faced each other amid a whirlwind, an executive told Seymour that it made no sense for them to fight anymore since their security men were down, and that it all was really on Toyo’s shoulders, and once he dealt with Pete, the others would present no problem. Troubled, yet confident, Seymour reminded the executive that Toyo was still keeping Puff aloft, and then, though he wondered if he could win with his attention divided that way, he cheered for Toyo.

Standing on the sidelines, Charlene asked the others whether they should help Pete, but Kris did not think they should interfere and told them that it looked like Pete was winning. Just then, however, Li Yan, who worried Toyo was in trouble, tackled Pete to stop him.

After Li Yan tossed Faith at Charlene and Kris, she tossed John against a wall with one punch and threatened to smash his skull. While John stared in shock at the glass shards protruding from the wall, Li Yan told him that she was going to break Charlene’s neck, and as she punched him in the stomach, she said that she was going to kill all of them so Toyo had nothing else to worry about except saving Robert.

Fed up, John grabbed Li Yan by the neck and pushed her off him. Curious to how someone as small as Li Yan could hit as hard and feel like she weigh a ton, John removed her coat and discovered that she was wearing weights under her clothes. As John punched Li Yan on the floor after he got rid of the weights and threatened to rip her throat out, Pete urged him to leave her alone.

Suddenly, Robert released a massive discharge that evaporated part of the floor and caught everyone’s attention. As the renegades and Li Yan gathered around Robert, Faith told them that she hurt one of Toyo’s men really bad and that she was not feeling well and was shaking all over. Though Faith begged them to leave, Pete told her that they first had to find out what was happening to Robert.

Worried for Li Yan’s safety as he felt himself starting to lose control again, Robert urged her to leave, but she refused. As Pete levitated Robert above the ground as he had seen Toyo doing, Robert told him that he made things disintegrate, but he had lost control and was in danger of blowing up anything solid that he touched. As Robert told Pete that he had forgotten how to control himself and suggested that he dump him out in the hills or kill him, the phone rang and Kris answered it.

As the operator told Kris that a caller on one of the outside lines said that it was important that he spoke with Toyo, she asked her to connect the call and, all of a sudden, Phil Seleski, the energy entity called Solar, came out through the phone demanding to see Harada.

When Pete wrongly assumed that Solar was one of Harada’s Eggbreakers, John rallied the others to attack him, but then Faith assured them that he was a good guy, a super-hero. As Faith gleefully told everyone that there used to be a comic book about Doctor Solar a long time ago, she asked Solar what he was doing in real life, but he told her that it was a long story and asked her what was happening.

Nervously, Pete told Phil that they went there after Toyo, but he escaped and they were trying to help Robert not blow up even though he and Li Yan were Eggbreakers. As he got the drift of the situation, Phil reminded Robert that he had told him before that his ability to interfere with molecular cohesion was tricky business, and he had to have fine control to prevent violent explosions.

As Phil told Robert that once he lost control he could start to get a mental block and that he wished he could coach him but he could not begin to describe how he did it, Pete asked him to demonstrate using a piece of rock. As Phil disintegrated the rock, Pete went inside his head and got a mental image of how he did it that he relayed into Robert’s mind.

While a thankful Robert embraced a relieved Li Yan, Phil chastised Pete for extracting information from his mind and angrily asked him whom he thought he was, when, just then, Harada returned to the sub-basement accompanied by a squadron of Foundation Troopers. Pleased to see the other two most powerful beings on the planet, Toyo sarcastically told them that there was much to settle among them.
