Synopsis for "The Day of the Prophet!"
High Evolutionary lets Counter-Earth vibrate on a different plane, a microsecond out of sync with the original Earth to avoid Detection by an unmanned rocket. He contemplates whether to destroy Counter-Earth or not.
On Counter-Earth, Warlock, David, Jason, Ellie, and Eddie are traveling to the city, then all of a sudden Warlock is pulled to the sky by High Evolutionary. He tells Warlock that he plans on destroying Counter-Earth, but he will not break his promise with Warlock by doing so. Warlock then tries to convince High Evolutionary that he can still bring good to Counter-Earth, but in the end, the only reason High Evolutionary doesn't destroy Counter-Earth is because of the promise he made Warlock.
Warlock is returned to the surface, where the teenagers ask him what happened. He ignores the questions and asks if any of them would like to abandon him at this point in the journey. Everyone replies that they will not abandon, except Jason. Jason says he wants to go back, but the rest of the group tries to convince him to stay. Warlock tells them to respect Jason decision, but Jason ultimately ends up not abandoning them, due to the persuasion of his friends.
Sometime later, the group wanders through the city, and they stumble upon a gathering where a Prophet is giving speeches about how a savior of Counter-Earth is coming. The gathering is assaulted by two evil New Men, Haukk and Pih-Junn. They attack Warlock and the Prophet, but after a brief fight, Warlock defeats both of them. The Prophet tells Warlock that he is the savior that has come to Counter-Earth, and the Prophet offers to take Warlock to wear he senses the Man-Beast is. However, Warlock decides not to take the four teenagers, and he sends them to the Prophet's sister's house for their own safety.
Warlock and the Prophet enter the sewers, and after brief exploration and a trap door, they arrive at the Man-Beast's lair, where a room full of evil New Men are waiting for them. Warlock spots Man-Beast sitting on his throne, and attacks him. However, it turns out it is just a mannequin. The Prophet then removes his mask to reveal himself to be Man-Beast the entire time. He then threatens to kill Warlock if he doesn't ally with him.
Perhaps the strangest hero ever - on the world called Counter-Earth! And wait'll you meet - the Prophet!
