Synopsis for "Final Conflict!"
Starfire recovers and attacks her sister, beginning a new skirmish between Titans and aliens, until Lord Damyn's Psion advisor takes control of the Citadel forces. He then pits Starfire against Blackfire in a duel to the death, ostensibly to decide Komand'r's succession and the fate of Tamaran, although he secretly plans a double-cross. Meanwhile, aboard the Omega Mens ship. Wonder Girl, Kid Flash, and Raven learn the origin of X'Hal from Primus and ICalista. Once the greatest warrior of the Vegan system. X'Hal was primarily responsible for repelling a Psion invasion, and was therefore made the Vegans* high priestess and ruler. The Psions returned, however, killing X'Hal and experimenting on her lifeless body, eventually converting it to pure energy, which unexpectedly brought her back to life as a powerful battle goddess. Destroying the attacking Psions. she then turned her uncontrolled power against her own people, destroying three of the twenty-five Vegan worlds before she could be captured and brought under control by those who would later become the Warlords of Okaara. On Tamaran's surface, the death-duel results in Black-fire's seeming demise, but triggers a series of explosions that will wipe out the Vegan system (as the Psion had planned), even as the other Titans and the Omega Men are reunited on the Citadel homeworld. Vega is saved only when X'Hal breaks free and detonates the explosives harmlessly. Raven heals the badly injured Starfire. after which Koriand'r is reunited briefly with her parents and brother before returning to Earth with her teammates.
