The second issue opens with Wallace Sage in the throes of a bad acid trip. He’s still on the phone, relating a dimly remebered childhood dream. Flex Mentallo continues his quest for The Fact while reminiscing about his old foe, the Mentallium Man, and the many strange transformations he has undergone in past adventures. He encounters a junkie in the thrall of a drug that briefly gives him superpowers before he collapses, babbling. Flex then visits a strange bar where learns of the existence of the Legion of Legions, a forgotten group of crime fighters who may be behind the strange goings-on. As he leaves the bar, he encounters the Mystery Pilgrim, a faceless panhandler who tells him of a teleport tube nearby that will take him to the sattelite HQ of Faculty X and the Legion of Legions. Meanwhile, Wallace Sage continues his monologue, struggling with repressed childhood memories. Something traumatic happened to him years ago, but he can’t remember what it was.
