Synopsis for "The Ultimate Android!"Edit

The Thinker plots to take control of Rom believing him to be an android that he will use to replace his own Awesome Android which has been defeated on numerous occasions. He tracks down the silver Spaceknight. Rom has returned to the place where he first arrived on Earth [1] to reflect on recent events and his feelings for Brandy Clark. The Thinker sends his Awesome Android to test Rom in combat. Meanwhile, Brandy is preparing for her impending wedding to Steve Jackson who is in truth a disguised Dire Wraith [2]. Ace O’Connor brings her photo evidence of alien activity to her editor Barry. Barry tries to dismiss the photos until he sees the one of Rachel Sweet’s banishment. He then transforms himself, being a Dire Wraith and summons two Hellhounds that drag Ace away into another dimension. As Barry destroys the photos, another reporter appears with the negatives. Rom defeats the Awesome Android and The Thinker appears and attempts to take control of Rom. Realizing his miscalculation the Thinker orders the Awesome Android to destroy the Spaceknight. However, the Android instead subdues the Thinker and retreats to his craft and leaves.
