Atari Force #13, main story
|Cover:||Ed Hannigan (designer), Eduardo Barreto (penciller) & Jose Garcia-Lopez (inker)|
The Dark Destroyer explains how he survived his last encounter with the original Atari Force (AF1.05) by sending out some of his life-essence in an organic pod before he was destroyed. He absorbed Lydia Perez' life force as she gave birth and also passed through Martin Champion so he could form a new organism. He found a pregnant creature (non-humanoid) on another world and used her as the host of his birth. He grew to his present form within a year, collecting his army of easily controlled sentients. Now he is going to destroy the New Earth universe. Martin jumps him and the fight resumes, this time with Atari Force winning. Dart makes for the bomb and it comes down to only Blackjak stopping her. She has too shoot him. As she tries to deactivate the bomb, she sets off a fail-safe. It's going to detonate and they can't do anything about it. Atari Force heads for Scanner One. Shortly before, Martin had beat the Dark Destroyer in hand-to-hand combat. The Destroyer makes his way to the bomb, but can't stop it either. He does something to Kargg and sends him on his way to fulfill the Destroyer's destiny. The Destroyer himself stays with the bomb, which goes off, destroying a universe.
Regarding the title: this truly is the beginning of the end for Atari Force, as this is creator/writer Gerry Conway's last issue.
