Continuing the story line from Volume 4 Issue 3 (Mind Games) Ralph busts out of the insane asylum under the telepathic commands of four space aliens. We were left to wonder what could be guiding the totally brainless Ralph Snart to escape from the asylum.
The space aliens' master plan is to enslaven the inhabitants of earth and fatten them up by feeding them a corn-based mash, and then sucking out their body fat to produce a fermented drink called "lipohol". By shooting Ralph with a ray from the ultra-maximum power inducer machine, they turn Ralph into an indestructible monster, and command the brainless Snart to conquer his race.
President Clinton, seeing graveness of the situation, calls the mutant satellite, which is staffed by mutant superhero's sworn to protect the human race. Snart easily kills the first two sent after him, Bug Eyed Geek and Rat Terrier; The story ends with two more mutants, Big Guy and Worry Wart Man, pursuing Ralph.
Also In This Issue: Two backup stories featuring another Hansen creation in this issue, "Fid", who bears a striking resemblance to a "Wook" from the Volume 1 mini-series. Poly-bagged with trading card.
