I should have clarified... I don't believe there is another portal and I am working on the assumption there is not, Doc distrupted one, Sparkledancer destroyed the other, and without the space-time portal, Rad can't possibly further his plan, and without being able to further his plans, he poses no major threat to the non-rad population of the world.
Also, I was under the impression that people from DocVerse weren't being pushed into the Radical Lands, but rather into a third, even lamer universe which is implied to be our universe? unless I missed something about that along the way...
I'm pretty sure the idea is that the people in McNinja universe get wiped out of existence. They're being used as a portal to allow a denizen of the Radical Lands to enter through. Why would this cause the normal person to be displaced into the third, lamer, "Honda Accord" universe? There's no vital link between the Radical person and the Doc-verse person - it's not like they're doppelgangers who can't exist in the same universe, so one of them has to be rerouted somewhere else. The Doc-Verse person is being used as a doorway - and then they're gone.
As for whether there is another portal - it's clear from Radical's villainous monologue that he's still pursuing that plan. Which means either that (a) he know exactly how to proceed to carry out the plan, in which case goodbye 95% of the world population, or (b) he doesn't know, but he's going to try regardless. And King Radical doesn't care about the value of life or the greater good, so he'll destroy anything and everything to achieve his goal.
King Radical is neither benevolent or benign. On occasion, his actions coincide with benefiting other people - but that is not his goal or even his concern. And he won't just sit back and watch either - he'll be out there doing every goddamn thing he can to achieve his dream ... and if he can't, well, I wouldn't like to see the destructive absolute ruler when he's frustrated.
Yes, King Radical is cool. He's cool in the way the Joker is cool. Or Darth Vader is cool. The charismatic villain - they're wild, they're dangerous, but ultimately, they will punch your baby without a second's hesitation. It's easy to see why King Rad is so popular - because he's violent and funny and unpredictable and consequently, very entertaining. But make no mistake about it - he's a monster.
Back to the comic - Is the Doc trying to use Dracula to vampify King Rad? I'm not certain how that would help - unless he has a bag of rice handy...
