Now, we should tell you that Z'Dar's reanimation by those future scientists did not go quite according to plan; parts of his brain were badly damaged in the process, and he suffered significantly from certain delusions, mainly stemming from the loss of his hand to Tick Tock. As a result of the confluence of these delusions and the peculiar circumstances involved, Z'Dar sometimes believed himself to be Captain Hook.

To get Z'Dar down into the Research Station and to set their plans in motion, Sister Aimee and Pastor Daniel constructed a dragon, the kind you might see in a parade in Chinatown, in the shape of Tick Tock. With Sister Aimee at the head, and members of the Lost Boys holding up the train, the dragon terrorized the Wilshire neighborhood where the entrance to the Research Station was found.
