Realizing how dangerous Judge Death is, Judge Dredd teams up with Psi-Judge Cassandra Anderson to stop Judge Death from killing the living. In pop culture, judge death has held almost equal popularity as Judge Dredd and was the reason why we had Judge Death feature in crossover comics like Batman/Judge Dredd: Judgment On Gotham.

Judge Death was also the leader of the Dark Judges that would make an appearance later on in the 2000AD comics.
