However, in his first and only battle with Freedom Force, Microwave is defeated; in an attempt to subdue Microwave and possibly learn more about him, Mentor
accidentally erases most of his memory banks. Now faced with free will instead of programming, Microwave chooses to fight on the side of good, joining with Freedom Force in the their battle against crime and evildoers everywhere.
