Deadman Edit

"Showdown"
The spirit of the Mayan god Talaoc takes possession of CIA section chief Grace Kasaba. In this form, Grace can see Deadman in his astral state. Deadman tries to act as if he is more powerful than he truly is, but the Talaoc-possessed Kasaba doesn't fall for it. Deadman flees from the temple and hides within the body of one of Kasaba's troops.

Kasaba rushes out of the temple and immediately spies the body that Deadman is inhabiting. She orders her men to hold the body down forcing Deadman to evacuate. At that moment, the spirit of Talaoc rises from Grace Kasaba's body. Deadman sees the god’s true form.

Wild Dog Edit

"Moral Stand (Part 2): Dog Gone"
A watchdog group known as the National Legion of Morality holds a conference in Quad City to discuss the growth of pornography that they believe is affecting America's youth. The Legion's spokesman B. Lyle Layman encourages his followers to destroys pornography wherever they may find it in the name of their righteous cause.

Later, several like minded individuals publicly protest the Readworld Book Store, a benign business that happens to sell popular adult publications.

Detective Andy Flint attends one of Layman's meetings and tries to get a bead on the guy. Something about his cause doesn't sit right with him. He drives over to Jack Wheeler's garage to discuss the issue – as well as issues concerning Wild Dog.

Meanwhile, newscaster Susan King and journalist Lou Godder cover the Readworld story.
