Non-Disney Vs DC Villains War
Derek Powers is featured in the war, working directly under Lex Luthor's company. While he is focused on his own research, he is suddenly intercepted by the Crimson Twins, Tomax and Xamot, demanding Zartan's release, since his capture by Lex Luthor, in the earlier events. Powers refuses, leaving the Crimson Twins to take action against him. Their cover is blown, as Powers guns them down. Surviving Powers' shots, Tomax and Xamot advance, eliminating Powers' sidekick, Mr. Fixx, in the process. They, then, toss an open gas extinguisher, right upon Powers, badly injuring him, before they would make their escape.
After the battle, Derek Powers goes through a chemotherapy, under the supervision of Lex Luthor, in order to heal his wounds, caused by the effects of the gas extinguisher. He awakes, in the later events, having been treated and healed by Lex's men.
