"War-Done", Way to Die #253, is the seventh and final death to be featured in "Think Globally, Die Locally", which aired on March 19, 2012.


Warden Hadley is a strict, heartless, and abusive warden who oversees female convicts at the Ohio Women's Prison. One day, Hadley cuts off all forms of outside communications from the convicts, upsetting them. Hadley confiscates a box of cupcakes meant for a convict, and eats one with blue frosting, not knowing it was laced with PCP. He begins to imitate the actions of his beloved German Shepherd, Bear. Soon, he begins to have a fit of rage where he smashes and throws objects, marches like a soldier, and even threatens to attack the other guards checking on him. Hadley dives off his desk, and one of the guards rolls a flash grenade into his office, hoping to calm the situation down. The guard accidentally rolls it too close to Hadley's face, and despite his attempts to blow it away from his direction, it goes off, blowing open his skull and frying his face, killing him.

"Warden Hadley stole some cupcakes... One packed a powerful PCP punch. He got his just desserts when he flipped out, tripped out and lost... his head."
