After being cured, he continued his Goodfellaing duties and took command of the remaining Goodfellas. However, he later realised that there weren't actually any Goodfellas left so instead simply decided to go into the music business with SuperNutty. The results were not pleasing. By a cruel twist of fate, Strongarm died due to complications involving his Borg implants that had to be left in his body to keep him alive, so he had no participation in the Stythe Wars. However, he was resurrected by the Omnipowerful Oracle as Strongarm II to join the Bound Swords, but declined, instead choosing to remain with the Swords of the Soundboard for several years before finally being persuaded to join the Bound Swords after the tide began to turn against the Swords.
