(Nightmare#4): Doggerel brought Neurotica to Nightmare's realm as an assassin for Exile. He told Exile not to touch her because she didn't like germs. She entered the Dreamworld portal on her own and Doggerel wished he could save her. On Earth Neurotica soon found a host and after teleporting through the Nightmare Chair she found her target in Lucre's studio. She attacked him and even went after Roxanne who she finished off with her neurosis. Neurotica then helped her partners to push Nightmare into the Nightmare Chair. She was banished from her host by Nightmare when he returned from his realm. Neurotica went back to Nightmare's realm and got up on the throne of the realm. Doggerel didn't stop her and took her orders to be her slave and stop rhyming.
