Corrupt ex-Judge Rico Dredd, brother of Mega City’s top lawman Judge Joe Dredd, escaped Titan Penal Colony and returned to the Big Meg for revenge. After a shootout between the two brothers Rico was killed. The Grand Judge was on the scene and Dredd carried the body to the waiting ambulance himself.
Dredd was heard to say “He ain’t heavy – He’s my brother!”
