Synopsis for "The Bo(d)y in Question"

With severe malfunctions in most systems, Death's Head is going through audiovisual data recorded since his last backup 13 weeks ago, trying to find out where he is and what has happened. In the records, Death's Head sees how Yondu Udonta, his last employer, decided to replace him with New Models, eventually ejecting him through the displacement chamber that brought him from the outskirts of Centauri Space to New York City.

Finally succeeding in rebooting his systems and collecting his assorted disconnected limbs, Death's Head realizes that he has been used as an amp at a punk concert. Wiccan and Hulkling, who happened to be at this very concert, confront the apparent sudden threat head on. Eventually, Wiccan magically teleports Death's Head to the bathroom in their apartment, leaving him completely drained of energy.

Later this night, unaware that Death's Head is operational again, Wiccan performs a magic ritual to search through multiple realities and, in many of them, sees versions of himself and Hulkling working together with someone looking like a teenage punk version of Death's Head.

Meanwhile, Death's Head finally decides to leave the bathroom and confronts Hulkling. In the ensuing fight, the latter lifts the mattress from their bed, only to reveal lying under it a punk mechanoid, seemingly switched off and suspiciously similar to the ones from Wiccan's visions. Death's Head immediately recognizes himself and is as confused as Hulkling. Wiccan, on the other hand, is not surprised.
