Synopsis for "For This is the New Origin of Omac!"Edit

OMAC enters a computer command center and finds a pre-recorded message waiting for him on a video screen. The message is from Quair Tox of the planet Vision. Quair Tox tells OMAC the true history behind the current wars plaguing Earth. The Visionaries were a race of futurists who predicted that the planet Earth would fall in a calamity known as the Great Disaster. Hoping to prevent such a future from coming to pass, a Visionary named Prof. Z petitioned the Visionary Council of Science to intervene on Earth's behalf. To this end, they disguised themselves as humans and formed the Global Peace Agency - a law enforcement organization responsible for the creation of Brother Eye and Project OMAC. However, they were unable to prevent the first of many incidents that signaled the coming of the Great Disaster. Seven industrial cartels now war against the Global Peace Agency and each other. Quair Tox tells OMAC that the only hope that Earth has is if a single strong leader could be found that could end the hostilities. He charges OMAC with the task of finding this leader. The message concludes, just as soldiers blast down the door. OMAC, now dressed in a new costume, turns towards the soldiers and surrenders.

Synopsis for "Requiem for a Deadman"Edit

Psi-Lab One, a facility where scientists study the paranormal, has been erected on the site where Boston Brand was murdered years ago. They hold a seance to contact him, and succeed in bringing Deadman into visible existence for a few seconds. But an outburst of psychic power creates a fire, and, after borrowing a scientist's body to get him and a female coworker out of harm's way, Deadman opts to stay and investigate the mystery. Deadman discovers that one of the scientists, Annabelle Lee, has the psychic powers, but he is repulsed by a dark being when he enters her id. The dark being proves to be the psi-form of Conrad Cabel, whose powers enable him to control her, and who intends to exorcise Deadman from the mortal plane that he may have unlimited access to Lee's powers. Deadman reenters Lee's id, confronts Cabel's psi-form, and rouses Lee's psi-form to defend herself. Deadman and Lee cause an outburst of mental power that kills Cabel's body and forces his mind to drift in the mortal world. Later, Deadman discovers that Annabelle Lee can hear him and talk with him, and promises to try and build a link between the spirit world and her own.
