In Dreadstar #29, two telepaths battle on the psychic plane. As the metaphorical violence escalates, they become locked in a battle for supremacy of identity. Monalo, the evil telepath, attempts to absorb or erase his opponent’s ego boundaries. He wants to take over her entire being. The good telepath, Willow, asserts herself against this onslaught – and the battle threatens to tear them both apart.

Jim Starlin depicts their bodies in a merged being, spilt down the center, with characteristics from both. You can see the many similarities between this page from 1987 and yesterday’s page from 2002, a battle between Moondragon and Doctor Strange in Infinity Abyss.
