Atom: Small Wonder
Choi begins to realize that prolonged usage of the Atom belt can cause one to shrink. Choi fears he will lose equilibrium unless he finds the source of this anomaly in his blood. Choi calls in Panda Potter to help with this endeavor. Choi has developed a diminution mapping engine that will enable him to observe the nucleus of his blood cells. Choi primarily wants to investigate the white corpuscles for any signs of radiation poisoning or tachyons since the belt has endured temporal exposure from dimensional rifts.
Unfortunately, the mapping engine was miscalibrated and Choi's blood sample became a matter displacing rift. Potter tells Choi to run before got sucked into the rift. Choi didn't want to but he knew that Potter trusted him in finding an answer to stop the rift. Choi exits his house but the rift continued to expand in size. As Choi takes a moment to breath, he is approached by city council member Matt Wilson who has brought a news crew with him. Wilson confronts Choi about his involvement with Ivy Town's recent chaos for the past couple of months. Before Choi could answer, the rift swallowed his home and made its way to his next door neighbor Amanda.
Choi makes his way through Amanda's home and finds her holding for dear life as the vacuum of the rift increases. Wilson and the news crew are sucked into the portal and Choi tries to maintain a firm grasp of Amanda but it wasn't enough. Amanda falls into the portal and Choi follows in after her. For a moment Choi was unconscious then he wakes up and finds himself floating on a hunk of wood in a crimson colored ocean. Choi is convinced at this point that his blood contains tachyons, particles which move backwards. It would seem tachyons are not only connected to the theory of time travel or dimensional rifts but they also apply to Choi's physiology which would explain his loss of inches.
As Choi gathers himself, he comes under attack by a pod of monstrous tapeworms. Choi rides the tapeworms to avoid getting eaten then he realizes these tapeworms can fly. Choi is soaring through the air on this tapeworm until he finds a island in the sky. Choi jumps off the tapeworm and uses his bangstick to repel the creature back into the depths of the crimson ocean. Choi theorizes that his blood combined with the dimensional rift has created this unusual dimension and the tapeworms must have undergone some erratic evolution when they were plucked from Earth. On the island, Choi finds the people who were sucked into the rift. Panda explains to Choi that time moves rather fast as compared to Earth's reality. A second on Earth seems like a couple of months in this dimension.
By this time, Wilson has made himself leader of the islanders and Panda has started a relationship with Amanda, Choi's neighbor. Wilson tells the islanders to expel Choi from the island because he has injured the tapeworm and they will come back in numbers as a form of retaliation. Unfortunately, Wilson was right and the tapeworms began their assault. Choi uses his bangstick to keep the tapeworms at bay while Panda tries to convince Wilson into helping Choi. Wilson refuses to listen to reason and impales Panda with a shard of glass. Choi hears Amanda scream so he slows down the tapeworms' pursuit by causing a mountainside to come crumbling down thanks to his bangstick.
Choi finds Amanda crying over Panda's lifeless body and sees Wilson making a hasty exit. Choi catches up to Wilson and begins to beat him repeatedly. Unfortunately, a tapeworm comes crashing through but Choi dodges the tapeworm and watches as it devoured Wilson. Choi felt a deep sense of gratification that his friend had been avenged but then a temporal rift opens. The rift teleports the tapeworm first then it transports Choi to the same future that he went to when he tried to help Teddy Hyatt. Choi finds himself at the mercy of Lady Chronos. Choi also notices the tapeworm has evolved even further. It now possesses appendages which enable it to walk but Wilson's mind has become the force that drives the creature.
