Max learned about Dolly’s death after hearing a news report about the successful test run of the collection system when the outer rims was blown to pieces because of a supposed “industrial accident”. Max drinks his sorrow away until he is interrupted by Eye. Eye pretends to offer Max a chance to join Synnar but what she really wants is a truce because Synnar has purchased fifty percent of Entreplaneteur’s Inc’s holdings and planet Earth is set to suffer an “industrial accident” as well. Max doesn’t believe Eye but he can’t ignore the possibility of Earth being threatened. He hopes the Justice League will aid him.
Max heads to his apartment and finds a package left by Dolly. The package is a recording left by Dolly. The recording suggests to Max that he tap into the Enigma’s twin teleportation system because if Synnar teleports anywhere ever again, Max can bypass Synnar’s teleportation with the ship’s teleporter thereby causing Synnar’s atoms to split into non-existence.
