Official Synopsis

"Pizzazz rejoins The Misfits in time to confront looming threat of Silica. But it will take everyone working together - and performing together in one super show to stop Silica and The Sickness' spread once and for all!"


Issue 16 Pizzazz Returns
In their tour bus, The Misfits celebrate Pizzazz's return. Silica's thrall can be broken by something very surprising, so Pizzazz suggests that The Misfits and The Holograms form a supergroup and perform as one band, something unexpected enough to shock the audience. Pizzazz confronts the rest of the band about replacing her, but praises Blaze, and tells her she can still stay in the band as a guitarist now that Pizzazz is taking back her role on lead vocals.

16 Synergy Jem
Pizzazz's plan involves Jerrica using a signal jammer backstage, while the supergroup is performing together. Holograms cannot touch anything physical - a holographic Jerrica's hand would just pass through - so Synergy transforms herself into a Jem hologram to perform with the band while the real Jerrica is backstage activating the signal jammer. While risky, the band agree that it's also the best way to keep an eye on Techrat and make sure he doesn't get his hands on the Silica technology.

16 Jem Supergroup
Silica and The Sickness perform Facade to a thralled audience, but are quickly interrupted by the Misfit-Hologram supergroup storming the stage. The supergroup performs a duet of Bad Bitten and Attack Of The Night together. The performance is so fantastic that it breaks Silica's thrall on both the audience and The Sickness. Jerrica activates the signal jammer, which deactivates Silica. Rio asks if that means Silica is gone for good, and Jerrica tells him that it seems so.

16 Stingers
The supergroup celebrate with a triumphant performance of Crush, and it is revealed that The Stingers - Riot, Rapture, and Minx - have been watching the performance from the audience. Riot comments that he thinks Jem is magnificent, but Rapture and Minx are unimpressed. It is then revealed that Raya - who is a member of The Holograms in the original cartoon - is sat beside them, and is also a member of The Stingers. She says that she thinks The Holograms are fantastic.
