(Marvel Tales (II) Featuring Spider-Man#256/2 (fb) - BTS) - Dr. Melloncamp "and her fancy gizmos" rebuilt the energy synthecon, restoring Hammer and Anvil's powers and allegedly saving their lives.
Comments: Created by Scott Lobdell, Dan Slott, Mark Pacella, and Dan Panosian.
Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition#17: Hammer and Anvil entry noted that the DRC repaired the synthecon after Spider-Man had shattered it, while the subsequent Marvel Tales I#256/2 story stated the Dr. Melloncamp had restored the the synthecon. Since Hammer and Anvil were working for the DRC in both the stories before and after Marvel Tales I#256, it makes logical since that Dr. Melloncamp worked for the DRC.
Apparently the last time the synthecon was rebuilt, it linked their life forces...
