I'm at the point in the EC Years where Omega is getting ready to introduce a young Star Warriors to the fans of the GWF and start training the Gamemasters.
Okay, here's how it went down for me.
Omega got jumped from behind backstage and beaten down prior to a title match. (I don't remember if he was defending or challenging.) Witnesses saw a man in a black hood running away from the scene, with a lead pipe. Omega went on to lose the match, and was out for a while with an injury.
Keller took it on himself to investigate and get to the bottom of things. He was assisted by his running buddy Silvar (a protege of Omega's) and a reluctant Morpheus. (Not that he was reluctant to find out who was responsible--though he was certainly not unhappy to see his rival taken down a peg--but he wanted things left to the authorities.) They began interviewing people and searching lockers. An anonymous witness came forward saying that Cosmos had been accusing Omega of holding down the rookies like him. This put the spotlight on him.
Over the course of several cards, Cosmos was interviewed, antagonized, and even attacked by Silvar and Keller, and ultimately, Morpheus authorized a search of Cosmos' locker and personal quarters (everyone had a dorm room at the Deimos Sports Center), and they turned up a black mask and gloves, with Omega's blood on the latter. This was revealed in an in-ring interview, and Cosmos came out to protest his innocence. He wound up getting attacked by Keller and Silvar.
At the next show, Cosmos (beaten up, but still healthy) came out to protest his innocence. Omega made his return, and confronted him...and wound up slapping him hard, and beating him up pretty bad. (This is all taking place between summer and fall, 2078.) A match was signed: Keller, Silver, and Omega against Cosmos and two partners he could choose. Of course, NOBODY wanted to team with him.
Match day finally came, and Morpheus said that HE would team with Cosmos, so that it wouldn't be a massacre, and while he didn't approve of the action IF it was true, the criminal investigation was still pending, and Cosmos hadn't been found guilty of anything yet. A little while later, Silver and Keller were founf attacked in their locker room. Silver was bleeding from the forehead, and Keller was absolutely out cold. Silver said that they had been jumped--he took a blow to the head, and things were pretty blurry, but he's sure it was Cosmos. He admitted to not seeing clearly, but it was a dark-haired guy. Keller took the brunt of it, and needed to be taken to the hospital. The pipe was the weapon used on Keller, and it was found to have fingerprints on it. It was sent to the authorities for analysis.
The match went on as the main event: Morpheus and Cosmos vs. Omega and Silver. Morpheus was obviously incensed, and only went on with it because he was obligated, contractually, but he told Cosmos he was pretty much on his own. The youngster got pounded by both his partners, and Morpheus short-armed him on a couple occasions. Silvar had him on the ropes and tagged in Omega, who finally nailed the Tomahawk Thrust. He was about to go for the cover, when Silvar attacked him from behind. He began pounding the crap out of his mentor, until Morpheus rushed in...and joined the assault! The match was thrown out and the show ended with Omega getting brutalized--until Cosmos (barely able to move, himself) crawled over and tried to cover Omega up.
So, fast forward a month or so, and Omega comes out to the ring, his arm in a sling and all that. He brings out another youngster--his son, who he has been training as a wrestler, and who he wants to teach another important lesson. He announced that the lead pipe used on Keller was found to have Silvar's fingerprints on it. Cosmos had been set up from the very beginning. He called the youngster out.
In front of the fans, the television audience, and his son, Omega announced that he had been wrong. He rushed to judgment, he blamed an innocent man, he let his temper rule his actions and blind him to the truth. He offered a handshake to Cosmos, and said that he wanted to make things up to him by taking him under his wing, guiding his career, training him...and even offering to let him team with his own son, when he debuted. And thus, everyone was happy, and the First Family was born.
