Christmas time is here, but Cy-Kill is ready to Grinch the Guardians' holiday!
When a meteorite passed through Earth's atmosphere in late December, Scooter wondered if it was Santa's sleigh. Good Knight, a visitor on Earth from the Guardian security council, didn't understand what the fuss was about. The meteorite actually contained a core of sorium, and the Renegades wanted it to re-engineer their brainwashing pulsar generator. The Guardians fought Cy-Kill at the meteorite site, and Good Knight destroyed the rock, leaving only a few traces of sorium caught in Screw Head's drill.
Back at Thruster, Cy-Kill and Doctor Go improvised a handheld pulsar generator with the sorium specks to brainwash individuals on a small scale. Cy-Kill decided to turn the humans' holiday spirit against them by brainwashing mall Santas into distributing special circuit boards in gifts to children everywhere. When positioned and activated, these circuit boards would create an anti-Guardian field around the Earth that would drive Leader-1 and his ilk off the planet forever.
Unfortunately, Scooter, Nick, and A.J. were acting as Santa and his elves at one of the malls the Renegades targeted. In order to prevent Scooter's sensors from detecting the circuit boards, the Renegades knocked out and kidnapped Scooter and his guard Good Knight, while Cy-Kill sunk to playing Santa in his place so no one was the wiser. Aboard Thruster, however, Good Knight was able to convince the simple Cop-Tur that Santa only brought presents to good girls and boys, leading the Renegade to release the Guardian prisoners in order to get back on Santa's good side. Scooter reversed the polarity of the anti-Guardian field before Cy-Kill activated it, creating an anti-Renegade field in its place.
Sure enough, on Christmas morning, a pile of presents mysteriously appeared on board Thruster. Cop-Tur was very happy with his new rotor, while Cy-Kill only received a lump of coal.
