Doctor Braxis claims he has reformed! Can the Guardians trust him?


The Renegades attacked a UNECOM facility near Mercury to steal a new decryption key. During the assault, Doctor Braxis arrived brandishing a Destabilizer Cannon and drove off the Renegades. He turned himself in to UNECOM and the Guardians for prosecution. Back on Earth, Braxis claimed to have turned over a new leaf and wanted to work off his time in service to UNECOM. Leader-1 and General Newcastle hesitantly decided to give him a chance, despite Turbo and Matt Hunter's recriminations.

Braxis modified UNECOM sensors to detect Astro Beam activity, and identified Cy-Kill and a Renegade force materializing in Rio for another strike at the decryption circuit. Armed with Braxis's Destabilizer Cannons integrated into their hand-blasters, Leader-1 and a troop of Guardians easily drove off Cy-Kill. With Braxis seemingly redeemed, Leader-1 had all Guardians install the Destabilizer Cannon as a standard upgrade.

All except Turbo. The suspicious Guardian refused the upgrade, and tailed Braxis to a UNECOM hangar. He found Doctor Braxis conferring with the Renegade Bad Boy, and realized it was all a set-up! Turbo attempted to report to Leader-1, only to learn the Destabilizer Cannon upgrade had a secondary function...total mind control of all the Guardians!
