(What The--?!#19/1 (fb) - BTS) - Wolvie, Pulverizer and Ghost Writer teamed up to help other heroes becoming more successful by turning them darker. They helped Deathlox, Noman and Katy Powder.
(What The--?!#19/1) - The trio turned their attention to young hero Darkgeek to help him become more popular. After taking out a gang Darkgeek was fighting (they actually just laughed at him), Ghost Writer explained to Darkgeek that the first rule if you wanted to call yourself Dark-anything was that there were no rules. Darkgeek still thought the attack on the gang was a bit excessive. After a few lessons by Pulverizer and Wolvie, Ghost Writer came to Darkgeek's aid when he got into trouble with the overweight Sludge. Darkgeek was there to arrest Sludge and see to it that he got a fair trial, but Ghost Writer told him that the third rule to be dark was to "Never try them, when you can fry them", burning Sludge with a Hellfire blast.
After their lessons the three vigilantes watched Darkgeek from a roof and saw him attacking a bookstore owner for wasting energy, though they were disappointed he didn't kill him. Wolvie told Pulverizer to give Darkgeek a chance to learn from his mistakes before they turned their attention to Night Splasher, the next hero in need of their help.
