Meanwhile on his way to death row or so the good reverend thinks, he tries to talk Dragon into escaping. Dragon well aware that the prison he is in is meant for guys like him, continues towards what is thought to be the electric chair. Dragon has himself electrocuted to return him to a normal Krylon so he can be moved to a different prison while he goes through the appeals process. Why the secrecy? Lorella and Dragon are the last of their race and in order to prevent extinction they must try to continue the race and having super powered Krylons like Savage Dragon would kill the mother. After being moved to his new prison Dragon is confronted by some prison thugs trying to take advantage of his lack of powers. Dragon defeats them easily reminding them even though hes not super anymore he still hasn’t lost his ability to fight.
The crime fighting days of Savage Dragon are being left to his son Malcolm to handle. No sooner does he leave his dad, Slag a.k.a.

Trying to convince her he was not responsible Malcolm’s step sister Angel steps in, which sparks an argument between them.
