Synopsis for "A Phoenix Berserk!"Edit

Dissatisfied with his friends' inability to help him learn about his true identity, the Monster wanders off into the mountains, soon pursued by the Berserker android, repaired by I.C.O.N.'s mole in the chalet. The two monsters fight until Frankenstein's manages to tear off Berserker's arm and asks why his opponent doesn't seem to feel any pain. The question leads Berserker to question its own identity, accessing some suppressed piece of humanity that was part of its design. The two stop fighting and walk off as allies.
