Synopsis for "Monster in the Morgue!"
Doc Gideon tries to animate a patchwork monster of his own creation, and in doing so revives the spirit of Deadman. The Forever People encounter Deadman during a seance conducted by Trixie Magruder, in which she tells the ghost hero that she witnessed the killing of Boston Brand and that he has not yet caught his killer. Gideon steals a capsule from Serifan and uses it to bring his monster to life. It goes on a rampage, but the Forever People bring it down, and Deadman uses it to communicate with the New Genesis youths.
