D.P. 7
DP7 24
Published: October 1988
Written by Mark Gruenwald; Drawn by Paul Ryan (penciler) & Danny Bulanadi (inker)
Appearances: Pvt. Dave Landers; Agent Stephanie Harrington; Agent Merriam Sorensen; Agent Charlotte "Charly" Beck; Agent Lenore Fenzl; Jenny Swensen; Sensei Wade (introduction); Chuck Harrington; Ben Harrington; Emily Harrington; Jilly Harrington; Lt. Keith Remsen [Nightmask]; Sgt. Haldeman; Agent Dobish; the Woodsman (in dream); Agent Lou Givens (introduction); Mark Landers (introduction, in hallucination)
Brief synopsis: Weeks later, Dave is headed for the Canadian border, but is caught and returned to Fort Benning. Sgt. Haldeman attempts to discipline Dave with his powers, but the mental block previously placed on Dave knocks Haldeman unconscious. Dave is place in “the black hole”, the base's solitary holding cell while awaiting court martial. The weeks of isolation make Dave go crazy and he hallucinates that the Woodsman has come to rescue him. Nightmask enters Dave's dreams and attempts to show him that he is suffering delusions. In the dreams, Nightmask observes a giant white cube which he assumes is a mental block. Nightmask approaches the cube and is pulled into it. As Remsen's dream-self vanishes, so does his physical form as well. Later, Dave hallucinates a manifestation of his “dark side” who tries to convince him to commit suicide by impaling himself on a sharpened piece of metal. A hallucination of Dave's brother Mark tries to talk him out of it, but fails and Dave impales himself on the piece of metal. Stephanie has joined the C.I.A.'s paranormal force and tries to heal Jenny Swensen's ailment. She fails because Jenny's skin has become completely hardened into metal.

Brief synopsis: The DDTeens rob a supermarket for food. Pursued by the police, Scuzz accidentally crashes their getaway car. Randy operates on Dave and manages to have his life. The next day, “Shadowman”, Randy's killer antibody, brings an injured Evan Huebner to him for treatment. Housed in the basement of the hospital, the Famileech breaks free from its containment. Shadowman teaches Randy how to enter its body, but takes on the Famileech on its own. Shadowman is destroyed, but Randy generates multiple antibodies and enters them simultaneously. Using this new power he is able to contain the Famileech once again.

Brief synopsis: Nightmask is pulled to northern Wisconsin by the mind of Walter of the ESPeople. Walter faints in the process and the ESPeople assume Nightmask is an attacker. Because of the ESPeople use their powers to create illusions of their costumes, Keith assumes he is in a dream, but he finds that he can't control anything and is overpowered by the group. The ESPeople wipe his mind of the encounter and drop him off on a road some distance away.

Jenny joins Stephanie, Lenore, Charlotte and Merriam on a mission to Brazil to investigate a biological weapon which proves to be the Famileech. During the encounter, Lenore is engulfed by the creature and presumed dead. After a three-hour search, Jenny orders the team back to their pick-up site and the remaining members return home.
