Week 36, Day 3.
Lobo brings his chained prisoners - Animal Man and Starfire - before the fearsome Lady Styx. Styx is feasting from a great vat of blood and offal, her face stained red and dripping.
Styx tells Lobo that she will pay no bounty, and that she will take the information she needs directly from the nervous systems of the prisoners, melting them down into the biomass she consumes. Styx's zombified servants attack Animal Man and Starfire, while Lobo refuses to rescind his vow of nonviolence.
Fishy, however, tells Lobo that Lady Styx is calling him a coward, which sets the psychotic serial killer off. Lobo attacks and kills the zombies, but is taken down by Lady Styx. Just in time, Adam Strange blasts through the window of the spaceship and the Emerald Head busts in.
Styx grabs onto the head and is dragged out into space where it explodes. Lobo is just fine, but Animal Man has been injured. Buddy, foaming at the mouth, asks Starfire not to let him come back as a zombie and dies.
