While working on his laboratory, Kirk is approached by CADMUS' associate, Alpha. He, openly, explains him the reason of his research on science, as his family, primarly his daughter, drove him into finding new approaches, unbestknown to him, that Alpha is secretly using the information he gave to him, to his own advantage.

In the later events, Kirk Langstrom joins fellow CADMUS' executive, Hugo Strange, on his scientific research on the alien warlord, Vilgax, brought unconscious by Bishop and Mr. Freeze, to understand it's nature and methods.
