Department of Metahuman Affairs

Synopsis:

Chester and Liz need money after the payments for Matt Cable have stopped, so Chester decides to sell some of his '60s memorabilia to Mike at Third Eye for $2,000. Among them is a Brother Power for Congress poster. Liz is convinced that Brother Power was a fake from the Merry Pranksters, but soon after, Sarge Steel sends Firestorm to destroy a satellite that has fallen out of its orbit. He fails, and it crashes into the center of Tampa, killing 5,000 people. The satellite is the very same that then-governor of California Ronald Reagan sent into orbit to get rid of Brother Power back in 1968!

Running burning from the wreckage and shot down by the police, Brother Power immediately realizes a new power, creating likenesses of himself out of junk, often very big. Sarge Steel still wants to destroy it, and calls on the Batman, seeing the similarity to Swamp Thing's powers. Batman tells him that Abigail Cable knows more about Swamp Thing than he does, so to try her.

Steel sends an agent calling himself Gideon Endor, admittedly deriving his name from a hotel Bible to get Abby, who agrees to come only if Chester and Liz accompany her, even though Endor hates hippies.

Jack in the Green checks in with Abby about Alec through the dresser in her hotel room, while Endor demands that Chester drink with him, ranting on how much he hates hippies because he is a disillusioned one himself. Chester gets fed up and leaves the bar, only to end up in a newly-formed Brother Power body's hand. Pow abandons that body and joins him the hand.

During a poignant discussion in which Chester expects that he is going to lose Liz when she fully regains her mental faculties, he convinces Pow that growing to enormous sizes is frightening people and going to cause him to be hounded. He goes off in search of Cindy.

After Chester assures him that Brother Power has safely left the area, Endor has Abby and Chester write statements about what Brother Power is. The Department of Metahuman Affairs pays them off, resolving Cable's multimillion dollar hospital bill.

Parliament of Trees (DC)

Synopsis:

Floro, confused about his many names, takes a small house plant he bought and named Milton to see the Parliament of Trees, meeting an old friend, a Dryad named Maya.

The Swamp Thing of the early 20th Century, Alex Olsen, speaks with him, but does not let him pass. While he spends much time educating Milton on comparative religion, he saves the headier questions for Alex Olsen, lamenting all the trees that have died printing Bibles and Korans.

Woodrue admits that the main reason he came is because he thinks he knows where the current Swamp Thing is, but because he has come to the same conclusion as the Parliament, his trip is considered a waste. Olsen also tells him that he may never have a place among the Parliament of Trees.
