    Homecoming! last edited by Kid_EST on 09/19/19 04:30PM View full history

    Vine lies dead on the sidewalk, the death mask of Professor Ivo still smoldering on his face. The Justice League of America arrive on the scene. The Vixen chases away an innocent bystander. J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter From Mars, confirms Vibe's death. The Martian Manhunter identifies Ivo's calling card. The police arrive on the scene. The Vixen attacks the police officers. Steel destroys the police officers' cruiser. The Justice League of America gather around Vibe's corpse. Unbeknownst to the Justice League of America, they are being observed by Ivo.

    Though Ivo feels no remorse for murdering Vibe, the next stage of his revenge against the Justice League of America troubles him. The Gypsy is to be Ivo's next victim, but slaying her pricks at his conscience. Ivo schedules a session with his android therapist. As usual, however, as soon as the therapist suggests anything not to Ivo's liking, Ivo deactivates the android. Ivo sends out an android killer, to deal with the Gypsy. Having convinced teen runaway, Pamela Cross, to return home, the Gypsy waits there with her, for Cross' parents to return. Cross is happily reunited with her family.

    The Gypsy decides to go home, too. Hitchhiking, the Gypsy is picked up by Ivo's android killer. Vibe is placed in cryogenic suspension, at the Secret Sanctuary. The Martian Manhunter briefs Steel, and the Vixen, on Ivo. With the current anti-super-hero political climate, J'onn J'onzz, the Manhunter From Mars, orders Steel, and the Vixen, to stand down. The android killer reveals itself to the Gypsy. The Gypsy flees. Despite her best effort to elude the android killer, the Gypsy can neither escape, nor mount an effective defense. Ivo's observation monitor momentarily goes out.

    By the time the picture returns, the Gypsy is dead. The android killer places Ivo's death mask over the Gypsy's face. Suddenly, the guilt over his actions overwhelms Ivo. The android killer helps the Gypsy to her feet. Built too well, the android mirrors Ivo's conscience. Rather than murder the Gypsy, the android transmitted an illusion of her death to Ivo. The android returns the Gypsy to her home. The Gypsy is happily reunited with her family. Outside the Gypsy's home, the Martian Manhunter confronts Ivo's android.
