Black Hawk: The Intergalactic Gladiator.
Black Hawk is freed and joins forces with his captor.
FIRSTS & LASTS
On Silversun there is a forest of giant fungi.
He has been captured by Captain Psyko. He is bound and whipped. When Kur tries to save him he uses the opportunity of a distraction to get free. He realises the Psyko is another victim of the Soul-Sucker. Black Hawk and Psyko ride to the forest of giant fungi. When Kur refuses to go in, they go in on foot.
THE KUR BEAST
He recognises Black Hawk's voice. He leaps out of the pit he was trapped in and tramples one of Psyko's men, kicks another and impales a third on his horn. It fears the forest of giant fungi.
He and Black Hawk ride to the forest of giant fungi.
At least three. Kur kills Psyko's men, one is trampled, another is kicked to death, while the third is impaled.
Captain Psyko: "Aye, torture me! You will soon come to love the sound of pain - the way only a man without a soul can!"
One of the men Kur kicks screams an "Aaaaiiieee!"

The depiction of Captain Psyko's metamorphosis is fantastic. Black Hawk and Psyko could be an interesting double act, but it all comes together a little too easily here.
