Leader-1 lies on the brink of death, as the Guardians try to save him.
During an attack on Renegade supply lines, Leader-1 battled Cy-Kill until the Renegade overlord threatened an alien pleasure yacht passing by. Leader-1 suffered significant injuries protecting the civilians from Cy-Kill. Rest-Q was summoned by Astro Beam to tend to his wounds, but the medic reported Leader-1 was trapped in his own memories. Scooter rigged a device to monitor Leader-1's brain waves, and the Guardians observed his recollection of past defeats. A.J. noted that Leader-1's memories were responding to their voices, however, and the Guardians began reminding him of all the good he had accomplished. Leader-1's internal narrative changed for the better, and soon he was back on his feet, ready for action!
