As is normal for the season, Michael is depicted as being an inhuman ghoul who thinks that the war was staged to entertain him because Lynn questions Aaron's love of country.

(Strip Number 5045, Original Publication Date, 8 November 1988)

Panel 1: As he watches something or other on television, Mike says that the footage of a plane hitting the ocean is ever neat. Since Elly knows something he doesn't, she's aghast.

Panel 2: Said thing that she knows and he does not is that this is newsreel footage from the war and the man flying that plane actually died.

Panel 3: She then explains that every bullet or explosion he sees is for real. He says "Really?"

Panel 4: Since he's Danny from Apaches and thus too stupid to understand what death is, he confuses Elly by regretting that the ever neat carnage isn't in color.

Summary: One wonders which Aaron she's screaming at about how he doesn't care about the pain, misery and suffering of others. If it's the five year old instead of the teenager he was when this came online, the high schooler is going to be treated like a radioactive leper because of the idiocy of the kindergartner.
