Synopsis for Deadman: "Mind Over Murder"
Vashnu succeeds in persuading Kronsky to remove the helmet and abandon his dreams of power. But now the helmet becomes sort of a hot potato as it exchanges several hands in the next several minutes. First, Deadman occupies Inga Brand's body, dons the helmet, and uses it to fashion him a new, solid body. However, the body disintegrates after a few seconds. Then, another man appears and steals the helmet, but Deadman occupies his brother's body, which causes the man to be thrown into a tank full of water, and die when the helmet explodes. With the helmet destroyed, Kronsky (who invented the helmet) feels that he has nothing left now, but Inga reassures him that he has a place with his new family, the circus people. Deadman, angered, asks Rama Kushna why was he taunted with freedom from his ghostly state. Rama appears as a face on a tree, and tells Deadman that he must adjust to his ghostly gift, and warns him that it may last for an eternity. Deadman screams in frustration.
