Synopsis for "The Day After part 1"
After hours of tests on Badrock’s transformed body, his scientist father agrees to finish early but forbids Badrock to leave the compound for fear he could hurt someone. Badrock lays in his quarters and unsuccessfully tries to convince his guards to let him out. That night, he busts out and jumps out a window, not realizing he is many stories up from the ground. He lands on the street and escapes into the sewers below. There, he finds the corpses of several guards and the giant, grotesque monster that killed them.

Synopsis for "Challenge!"
Combat has been sent to Assael, a temple asteroid in close orbit around the Acuran sun, to retrieve an Orb of Power. He recalls his Katellan upbringing and training as he navigates the traps and labyrinthine layout of the temple. He reaches its central chamber but is attacked by a female Acuran also after the Orb. They fight until he impales her with his staff, killing her. He searches for the Orb but cannot find it and leaves, unaware it has been taken by another alien. After Combat leaves, Assael explodes.
- As revealed in Youngblood vol. 2 #1 and Maximage #2, the Combat who was a member of Youngblood during this period was a clone created by Alexander Graves. "Challenge!" is set before Combat came to Earth, making this issue the first appearance of the real Combat.
