This arc will explore a side of Richard's personality that we have very rarely seen; what exactly happens when a hero becomes a villain and how does the transition change them. As is it isn't exactly new: Rich was brainwashed both by the Condor and by the Corruptor in previous series but they were brief to the point. DNA aim to delve into the whole grey area a bit more; but note,in each time Rich has been turned, his mind and true personality, that of the hero, ultimately made him see sense and break the conditioning inflicted upon him. In this scenario, that and the fact the Worldmind is also part of the package, may have a major influence on exactly how long he's a Select. But another point: even when he "returns to normal" he may have to come to terms with any actions that he carried out while he is a Select; they may have consequences that Nova 8 onwards may show after the Nova on-going carries on after the Conquest tie-in issues.
