The Micronauts (Acroyear, Bioship, Bug, Fireflyte, Huntarr, Marionette, Arcturus Rann), alongside Karza's fleet encountered and battled the D'arnellian fleet. Both D'arnellians and Dog Soldiers rapidly died by the thousands in the savage struggle. Karza and Bioship were held in reserve in case the Micronauts failed, and Bioship's sensors determined that the power they faced originated from Earth.

Rann asked him why he waged war against the Microverse, and the Entity replied "For the fun of it!" as he snapped his fingers and shattered the planet D'arnell. Bioship shielded itself and Karza from the flying planetary debris, while the Entity bound the Micronauts against asteroids. The Entity then sensed the presence of Bioship and Karza, and they fled at full speed to escape his wrath.
