FIRST APPEARANCE:  Challengers of the Fantastic#1 (June, 1997)

HISTORY:

(Strange Tales of the Unexpected#137) - Vykin the Black Bolt forbade the Challenger of the Fantastic known as Johnny "Red" Storm from ever seeing Dream Crystal again.  Although Dream Crystal was allegedly the only girl Johnny ever really loved, fellow Un-People Big Gorgon, Medusa Moonrider, and Triserinak forcibly separated the two and brought Dream Crystal through a Boom Tube back to New Asgard.  Not even Johnny's friends Senator Ben "Rocky" Grimm and Wyatt Flying Stag would help the couple stay together.

(Challengers of the Fantastic#1(fb)) - "Four Against the Unknown!" - While playing video games with Johnny Stormtrooper in his room within Challenger Mountain, Johnny "Red" Storm sadly remembered the day when the Un-People forbade him from seeing Dream Crystal.

(Challengers of the Fantastic#5) - Dream Crystal returned to Challenger Mountain to visit Johnny "Red" Storm (apparently against the wishes of Vykin the Black Bolt).  But the situation got awkward for Johnny when his old girlfriend, Corinna Evans, stopped by while Dream Crystal was still visiting.
