Elizabeth and Brad find the skeleton of a shaman. Snowbird appears, explaining: Nightmare raped Zhilla Char and banished her to Liveworld. She died giving birth to the Dreamqueen, who took control of Liveworld, but realized it was a prison. Nanquato was a shaman seeking the gods to end a drought. Instead he found the Dreamqueen, who fooled him, giving him a totem that let her manipulate his tribe's minds, killing them with fear. But a warrior killed Nanquato, so the Dreamqueen was still trapped. Eventually Goblyn arrived, and she studied her, trying to find a way out. Alpha Flight arrived, and a portal was opened (iss. 58-60), but the Dreamqueen was stopped by Judd. She planted seeds of nightmare in Alpha Flight, which caused strange illusions (iss. 62, 64-66) and gave her links to their world. Meanwhile, she abuses and tortures Judd. Snowbird tells Elizabeth to become Talisman again, which she does, and runs off to warn Alpha Flight. Heather has already assembled the team (minus Knapp) to warn them, but just then the Dreamqueen uses all of them to break through to this world.

Elizabeth asks for the talisman back, and he removes it, but Walter snatches it out of his hand, jumps out of Boxship, and puts it on to battle Alpha Flight. Besting them, he runs off, but Snowbird appears and grants him what he really wants, his male body, and frees him of the Dreamqueen's control. Satisfied, he gives the talisman to Elizabeth.
