Fighting his way to the surface, Arkon lost his map of Weirdworld in the sea and wanted to go back to recover it, but Warbow promised to give him his own map in exchange for Arkon's aid in rescuing his liege, the Crown Prince of [[Crystalium|Crystallium]], [[Crystar (Earth-616)|Crystar]], and he accepted. While le Fay left her castle riding her dragon, who was sent back to her by the lords of Apelantis, Arkon and Warbow invaded it and made their way to the treasure vault, where they found Crystar's remnants inside a bag. They were then surrounded by the Magma Men,{{r|Weirdworld Vol 1 2}} but were able to fight their way out the castle alive.

Arkon began to hallucinate about seeing Polemachus upside down when Skull freed him from the vines by attacking him fiercely. Arkon managed to get one of his Battle-Bolts and overcame his enemy, but before he could kill him, he was immobilized by the burning touch of one of the Man-Things. This time, Arkon hallucinated about his worst fear, Polemachus burning in front of his eyes. The hallucination ended with the arrival of the [[Jennifer Kale (Earth-616)|Swamp Queen of the Man-Things]], the woman behind the rebellion against Morgan le Fay. After a brief conversation with the two warriors, the Swamp Queen forced them to face their fears in order to survive it and become her allies against le Fay; however, only Skull accepted the offer to become her ally. Arkon fled from the Forest of the Man-Things, having remembered the path which led to Polemachus, but upon reaching the rock that was supposed to be the entrance to his kingdom, Arkon found himself yet again in front of a cliff at the end of Weirdworld. Filled with sadness and rage, Arkon pointed one of his Battle-Bolts towards his own belly ready to kill himself, unknowing that Polemachus was in fact in Weirdworld, suspended upside down as the underside of the floating island.{{r|Weirdworld Vol 1 4}}

History

Weirdworld was a planet located within an unidentified dimension where the evenly-matched gods of light and darkness were embroiled in an everlasting game in the Vaults of the Stars, which they played despite neither side having any hopes of actually winning, simply to avoid the boredom of immortality.

Weirdworld was forged eons ago from the cosmic debris created when the dark god, Darklens, rebelled against his own kind, but his uprising failed, and he was stripped of much of his power and exiled onto the planet as punishment for his insurrection.[1]

Much of the planet including Klarn later appeared as part of the floating island called Weirdworld.[2]
