There's quite a bit happening here as the family is still separated in pairs across the various magical lands. While Billy and Mary are able to break free of King Kid's control, the comic takes an unusual turn as attempting to reunite with the other heroes the pair are returned to the real world where an unexpected surprise awaits.

While Billy accepts the man in front of him as his father, is this some kind of trick, a test, or has he truly been reunited with a member of his family? And, if indeed it is Billy's father, what does that mean for his new family and their heroic pursuits? (And has the comic already foreshadowed another unfortunate parting of the ways between father and son as the newly-released convict prepares to break his parole?)

While the focus is primarily on Billy, Mary makes a bold move in revealing their secret to their foster parents, Pedro and Eugene continue to struggle in the Gamelands, and the comic also briefly showcases a battle between Black Adam and Sivana, with the doctor wiping the floor with the wizard's first champion. Worth a look.
