The Surfer awakens in the desert next to an unconscious Coroner. Tenebrae is missing but he is able to track her down. He follows her into the Microverse. She has been disconnected from the Mergence and searches for Cy-Phyrr 4 and Alicia.
Alicia is still battling the invaders and they seem to fear her, presumably because she is a biological being. She is able to drive them away and Cy-Phyrr 4 is able to regenerate himself once again. He senses danger for Tenebrae.
Tenebrae is soon attacked by a massive ship and it pulls her ship inside of it. It is Psycho-Man and he plans to learn what he can from her to steal the unlimited knowledge of the Mergence. He soon gets another visitor in the Silver Surfer and is able to capture him as well.
