The latter is saved in extremis, almost resurrected from the devastating effects of the tremendous impact, by a gigantic red and silver extraterrestrial humanoid from the “Land of Light” in Nebula M78 and a component of the “Garrison of the Ultra”, which merges with the terrestrial and gives him the Beta Capsule ”, a device that will allow him to transform his shape at will.
