Synopsis for "New Bodies for Old!"
Fancy Freddy Sparga and the Crime Cabal run an illegal racket that enables them to perform brain transplants. They kidnap healthy, unwilling donors and bring them back to the Transplant Terminal where they use them as surrogate bodies for older crime lords whose bodies have begun to fail them.
A GPA agent tells OMAC about Fancy Freddy's operation and they prepare to take him down. Freddy's men learn about the GPA's investigation and puts a hit out on OMAC. One of the Cabal's finger men fires a missile launcher at the building where OMAC is meeting with the GPA agent. Brother Eye, monitoring the situation, projects a heavy element beam around OMAC and the agent, protecting them from the blast. The satellite then makes it appear as if the Cabal succeeded in their attack.
OMAC continues investigating the Crime Cabal and finds one of their lieutenants, a man named Buck Blue at an amusement center. Buck proves to be uncooperative, so OMAC arrests him on suspicion of being a body snatcher. Several of Buck's friends are nearby and try to rescue their friend by fighting OMAC, but the one man army corps easily shrugs them off.
OMAC forces Buck to yield information about the Cabal. Buck relents and tells him about one of their newest clients, the Godmother. OMAC and Buck take a Magna-Remote to the Godmother's Sun-Palace. OMAC bursts into the mansion and begins fighting the Cabal's agents. GPA agents show up to give OMAC back-up support and they succeed in incapacitating Freddy Sparga. Even though they managed to capture the ringleader, they still need to find the Cabal's Transplant Terminal.
