NOTE:
Yep, that’s how it ends. The series was cancelled on apparently fairly short notice, since this was billed as the start of a three-part story. Also, a miniseries “Wild Angels” was announced but never came out, that was supposed to feature Wild Thing and Dark Angel.

That rang a bell!

Check it out, that's already been analyzed for the MCP! :D

Wild Thing, Liddel and Trout all appear in this thing, according to the analysis. I've edited these appearances into the above suggestions.

Thanks Midnighter! :thumbsup:
