Attacking Sam Lane[]

Morrow then targeted Sam Lane for having ordered the destruction of his robot (who was according to him his life's work) though the army failed. Maxwell Lord managed to find out that Morrow was controlling Red Tornado, and informed Alex Danvers of the situation.[1]

Final stand[]

Danvers then invaded Morrow's safehouse, where she confronted him at gunpoint. Morrow then attacked her, while Red Tornado fought Danvers' sister. Supergirl was being beaten badly, but Alex managed to grab her pistol, and shot Morrow dead.[1]
