Battle Tendency - Chapter 69 
Kars is sent out to space by the volcano eruption started by the Red Stone of Aja. He tries to blow air to propel himself back to earth, but the void of space freezes him from the inside out. Having become the ultimate thing, he cannot die no matter how much he wishes for it, thus he eventually stops thinking.
Two weeks later, Joseph's family, Smokey, and Speedwagon are attending Joseph's funeral as he is believed dead from the battle with Kars. However, Joseph shows up to his own funeral, alive and well with a prosthetic hand made by Stroheim. Joseph reveals that he married Suzi Q during his absence. Suzi Q was supposed to send a telegram to everyone telling them that Joseph was alive, but forgot to do so.
Lisa Lisa finally revealed to Joseph that she is his mother and later remarried. Erina continued to teach until she died peacefully at age 81. Speedwagon made monumental progress as an oil tycoon and died as a bachelor two years after Erina's death. Smokey worked to pay for college, where he studied politics and became the first black mayor in his hometown in Georgia. Stroheim never saw Joseph and the others again. He died at the battle of Stalingrad as a proud Nazi soldier.
Fifty years pass and Joseph has grown old, with a dislike of Japanese people because his daughter had married a Japanese man twenty years prior. He has not lost his overall attitude, however, as he walks over to his flight, Walkman in hand, to see his daughter Holy and his grandson Jotaro.

- In the original Weekly Shonen Jump publication of this chapter, Joseph mentions that he is listening to Get Back by The Beatles on his Walkman. The name of the song is omitted in the volume release (as well as the TV Anime), but is still present on his cassette at the end of Stardust Crusaders.
