Tempest's hearing begins, but when he tries to escape, Hunter knocks him out. Elsewhere, while Dart and Blackjak talk, Morphea tells Martin that Tempest is gone. Then Scanner One arrives at the edge of New Earth's solar system. Atari Force sneaks out in a "lifeboat" and heads toward the bomb while the Dark Destroyer's minions search the ship for them. They catch up to Atari Force at the bomb and a fight ensues. Since they're losing, Martin Champion surrenders and asks the Dark Destroyer who or what he is. He removes his helmet to reveal a younger version of Martin Champion's face (c. the original Atari Force's missions).


This is Jose Garcia-Lopez' last issue as an interior artist.


  1. Lettercol: It states that Jose Garcia-Lopez is leaving to do the New Teen Titans for five months. He "promise[d]" to return with #18, but he did not, although he continued to work on the covers for several months.
