Synopsis for "Radio Bedlam"
A new escape-artist named Baron Bedlam has quickly arisen to fame, with his acts rivaling even Mister Miracle's. His popularity has grown to the extent that his fans use cosmetics that make their skin like enamel, essentially becoming "plastic people". Shilo is infuriated by this newfound competition. Bedlam's stunts seem to be near impossible, with Bedlam even appearing to die during them but somehow make it out alive.
Shilo gets in a fight with Zz over that fact that he is seeing Lashina, who he sees as a bad presence. Shilo's girlfriend Jonelle goes to check on Zz, and finds Lashina making him into a "plastic person". Granny Goodness appears behind her and knocks her out.
Shilo confronts Bedlam, who explains that he means to replace Shilo and take everything that's his. Lashina appears behind them with Zz and Jonelle, now both plastic people and worshiping Bedlam. Shilo attacks Bedlam, smashing his head open, revealing him not to be human. Doctor Dezard walks in and explains that Bedlam is "a living wavelength" who can transfer his body into multiple replaceable bodies. Bedlam was created to torment Shilo's life and ultimately take away his fame and loved ones to leave him vulnerable.
Bedlam's duplicates grab Shilo, and Dezard takes away his Mother Box, stating that it is the time of the Evil Gods. Darkseid walks in, and whispers the Anti-Life Equation into Shilo's ear, mentally crippling him. As Shilo is just about to give up, Metron appears before him, stating that there is a Life Equation too, and Shilo is restored.
Shilo returns to Boss Darkside's hideout to retrieve Jonelle, and confronts Darkseid. Darkseid applauds Shilo for resisting the Equation, but states that he won't be able to resist "The Omega Sanction". Darkseid's goons attack Shilo, and take him to a deserted area where they beat him, castrate him, and burn him alive.
Crippled beyond measure, Shilo is on the brink until he is confronted by the re embodiment's of Orion and Lightray, who state that "The Life trap has him in its grip", and that there's only one way out.
