Weeks later, Leslie Dean was also sent to the Crater in Palm Desert due to Frank attempting to remove her from the leadership of the Church of Gibborim which he wanted to claim. There, Leslie was reunited with her mother Susan Ellerh, who had also been sent into exile in Palm Desert when Leslie was just a little girl.
Eventually, Leslie was rescued from the Crater by the Runaways Karolina Dean, Nico Minoru and Molly Hernandez. The four of them were able to leave Palm Desert unharmed, while Frank remained prisoner in the Crater after the parishioners of the Church of Gibborim, now led by Ellerh, turned on him.
