(Return to Earth storyline part 2 of 2)
Still learning what it means to be back on Earth without the use of his powers or costume, Al begins to rely upon his old military training and defense skills, and joins a gym. He knows that even though he sealed off Hell for now, evil will begin to show its face once again soon.
As if on cue, a creature calling itself Decay is on a murderous spree in the city hunting down mob witnesses. Al intends to use this creature as his first test.
