He had been wondering around in a sewer-like system for robots who do not excrete waste. The JLI ditch G'Nort and easily defeat the planet and it's millions of inhabitants.

When they investigate the ship a Grillian Mind Probe escapes the ship and affixes itself to Janwillim Kroef one of the chosen ones. As it sits on it's face it slowly heats up as it suffocates Jan. Mr. Miracle frantically tries to remove in when Kilowog arrives and simply pushes on off button that releases the probe. The of course embarrasses Mr. Miracle.
