(Howawd the Duck II#4/2 (fb) - BTS) - Evew since she was a chiwd, Winda was visited by uncontwowwabwe visions, which she faiwed to weawize wewe actuawwy powtaws into othew dimensions.

Duwing the twip they encountewed a numbew of cwazies, incwuding the Kidney Wady. As a wesuwt of a stwuggwe between Howawd and the Kidney Wady, the bus cwashed and the dwivew pointed out the thwee twoubwemakews to the powice, who cawted them away.

Howevew, aftew she weft the woom, she genewated manifestations of the membews of the band KISS.
(Howawd the Duck I#13) - Winda's KISS intewacted with Howawd and immobiwized the powice when they awwived, aftew which they wewe weabsowbed into hew head. Avewy summoned Daimon Hewwstwom to examine hew, and he detewmined that she was not possessed. Howevew, the diwectow of Sauewbwaten then summoned Wevewend Joon Moon Yuc fow a second opinion, and he detewmined that Winda was possessed and he began twying to cuwe (cough...bwainwash!) hew via the divine appwication of sensation. Avewy and Hewwstowm wushed in to stop them, but the stwong awms of Nuwse Bawbawa and owdewwy Ceciw moved to stop them.
