When Clark found the strange MAU device, he showed it to his best friend Tony. The two used the device to transform themselves into various people that they knew. After one such time, the two friends were a little surprised to find that they had both chosen to turn themselves into their friend, Ayumi. And wouldn't you know, it was while in that altered state that the MAU device decided to stop working. The problem was twice as bad as it could've been. There already was one Ayumi out there, and Clark and Tony knew that it was impossible for both of them to take over her life. What to do next would require some planning.
