Timespan was able to bring Battalion back to his own time before Despot could destroy him, but the Battalion of the current timeline returns, revealing that he faked his own death in order to get the upper hand on Despot.
Even still, Battalion cannot take his father down, and Despot takes control of the minds of the remaining StormWatch and WarGuard members and sends them to kill Battalion.
Battalion is able to retreat back to the ruins of SkyWatch and stop his attackers, but Despot still has control of Strafe. Battalion incites Despot into attacking himself. He is then able to turn the tables and show Despot what a monster he has become. But just as Despot has finally come to his senses and apologizes to his son, Bendix teleports in and shoots him in the back of head.
Includes a StormWatch pinup by Terry Shoemaker and John Holdredge.
This issue features the return of Battalion (Jackson King) and the death of Despot (Isaiah King).
