Synopsis for "Dissembler at the Wedding!"
Metamorpho and Sapphire Stagg are finally getting married. However, the wedding is interrupted when a duplicate Rex Mason shows up and abducts Sapphire. The duplicate is later revealed to be a shape-changing android named Even Steven. Even Steven is the servant of Maxwell Tremaine, an old rival of Simon Stagg, who believes that Sapphire is the embodiment of her late mother, Mara.
The Outsiders fly to Tremaine's junkyard in Africa and fight up against his hired agents, the Masters of Disaster. Metamorpho fights with Even Steven, but when Maxwell threatens Sapphire's life, Even Steven betrays him and attacks. Even Steven's body becomes unstable and both of them die in an explosion.
With Tremaine dead and the Masters of Disaster defeated, the Outsiders return to the United States and Metamorpho and Sapphire finally get married.
