Vengeance and Singing?
With his mother's apparent death at the hands of Pitch Black, Prince Charming falls into despair. He calls upon Remington Smisse to help him get revenge on the monster that caused his mother's death. The two are soon joined by Frieda, who also wants to put an end to Pitch Black. In order to further this quest, Prince Charming heads off to the castle of Grendel, wherein he attacks the monster. He is able to keep most of the beast's attacks at bay, but he cannot stop the monster from grabbing him. In shock, he begins singing, damaging Grendel's sensitive ear drums. Using the monster's agitated state to his advantage, Charming cleaves off the monster's arm, leaving it to die.
War in Many Forms
In order to step up his war, Prince Charming asks Frieda to transform him into an animal so that he might kill Malthazar, Pitch's top general. Frieda complies, giving Charming the body of Mandrake. Charming successfully infiltrates Malthazar's base, challenging the general head on. Darkos, Malthazar's son, steps in to defend his father. The two clash, sword on club, with Charming eventually getting the edge. Right as he is about to strike Malthazar down, Pitch Black himself appears and knocks Charming down a massive pit, encasing him in rubble.
Prince Charming survives his fall, but he reverts back to his human form. He comes upon the Trix, whom he convinces to join his cause. An even more powerful ally emerges in Rothbart, who is determined to put a stop to Pitch Black's plans. To Charming's surprise, his mother, very much alive herself, appears. The Fairy Godmother, fearing a being even more powerful than Pitch, teleports Charming to the live-action universe, hoping that he will be safer there.Unfortunately for Charming, he ends up teleporting in front of the Colonel. The two argue, leading the two to draw their blades and duel. Eventually, Charming gains the upper hand and knocks his foe down, only for the Colonel's ally, Javert, to appear and hold him at gunpoint. Javert and his allies then force Charming to reveal how he got to the live-action universe; when Charming does so, the three decide to keep him along as a prisoner.
