Eventually most of his team were massacred by an unknown assailant. This drove Lagoon Boy to seek out mental help, as he had been traumatized by the death of his teammates. He traveled to a place called Sanctuary where super-heroes went to seek out help. During his stay at the Sanctuary he was shot by a laser repeatedly as a form of therapy. He was accidentally killed by a fellow patient who went into distress and lost control of his powers, fatally blasting Lagoon Boy and others who had approached out of concern.
