Flamebird & Nightwing reunite and fly into the well in Rao's chest with Vohc/Jax-Ur in tow. They burn Vohc out of Jax-Ur's body and as they arrive in Rao's heart Chris uses his new powers to erode the gravity well saving everyone by shattering Rao and leaving Jax-Ur in the care of the remaining heroes. Deliriously in love they thank everyone and leave just as the authorities arrive to clean up the corpse of the Rao clone.
The clean up crew are revealed to belong to General Lane and the collection of the body parts is in the hands of Lex Luthor!
Appearing in "Captain Atom, Finale"
- Danel (Deceased)
Synopsis for "Captain Atom, Finale"
Aggaro congratulates Captain Atom for defeating Mirabai and freeing Sorcerers' World from her tyranny. But Captain Atom is dismayed that their struggle also cost the life of Danel. Aggaro, however, doesn't feel any pity for Danel. Noticing how his attitude suddenly changed, Atom questions Aggaro. The ogre then admits that his charade is done, as he is now ruler of Sorcerers' World and revealing his true identity to be the sorcerer Mordru.
Mordru explains to Captain Atom that even though he is a villain on Earth, he doesn't see himself that way because in his world he wanted Sorcerers' World to be free from Mirabai. Without Captain Atom, Mordru would have been powerless against Mirabai because of her hexes that were prominent in her domains. Captain Atom then tells Mordru that all of their actions only traded one tyrant for another, but Mordru reasons that is not what he intended and promises Captain Atom that if he should return to Sorcerers' World one day in the future, he would have been glad to have been part of this fight. Furthermore, the defeat of Mirabai, who would soon be sent to Mordru's seraglio, also severed her ties to General Lane.
Mordru then magically banishes a freed Zachary Zatara back to Earth. Mordru reminds Captain Atom that if he (Mordru) should appear on Earth he would be seen as a foe to Captain Atom, but on Sorcerers' World, Captain Atom would always be treated as a friend. He then conjures Captain Atom to return to his world.
A week later, Captain Atom resumes his heroic life as the world no longer fears or despises him thanks to the efforts of Mon-El, who convinced the Daily Planet to run a very positive story on Captain Atom: "Captain Atom: The Return of a Great American Champion." Captain Atom's past, even at its most dark, is forgotten, especially for Captain Atom himself, who has scant memories of his past life and actions. Captain Atom's greatest wish is to look forward to a new life and to once again be a hero.
