    Second Death

    Brilliant scientist with a rotten marriage, desperately unhappy.

    In a bid to stop his past self from creating a nuclear explosion, the Solar from an alternate temporal dimension uses Erica as a way to gain access to his reactor. When Erica finds herself caught in the nuclear explosion that grants Phil his powers, she gains similar abilities that manifest themselves in the form of an energy child that Phil later destroys. While still reeling from her loss, Erica lashes out at her abusive husband, Bert Pierce, and kills him with her latent powers, which then apparently consume themselves and kill her.

    When Phil investigates Erica’s death, he discovers that someone killed her and learns that the Erica Pierce from the temporal dimension he hails from followed him to the new time line.
