Nick's body arrived at The Emerald City, dangerously close to death. This is where his story intertwines with the Wizard for the first time. You see, the Wizard was not a bad man, but a true coward. He had sealed himself up in his city, deathly afraid of the Witches that surrounded him, in the outlying countries.
Still, when presented with the opportunity to save a life and flex his great mind, he went to work on constructing a new metal body for Nick Chopper. The Wizard had no magic. But he was a "wizard" of machinery. To the primitive people of Oz, the Wizard's great machines all seemed to be magic.
The people saw how great their leader was, Nick lived, and everyone was happy. Except Nick.
More to come!
