    Synopsis: An intruder alarm goes off in Dept. H; Clarke sends the team to apprehend. Turns out to be the Master, and they fight. They have more trouble with their own teammates: Mac bickers with Judd for command, Murmur disobeys orders, Flex is reluctant to fight, and Radius shows up late. But they win, and the Master disappears. Mac and Heather talk while they look for him: he is 19 again, and doesn't consider them married.
    De LaSalle calls Proctor to Hull House; one of the Legacy orphans is displaying mutant abilities.
    Dept. H has altered Heather and Judd so they won't remember Zodiac or Madison.
    Huxley and the new Helios Project examine Sunfire; he is dying of radiation poisoning from his own power.
    Another intruder alarm: Clarke orders the team to split up and find the Master; each finds a copy with different armor and weaponry and leads him to the central rotunda. They switch opponents and easily overcome the Masters. Volume 2 Issue 2 Detail 1
    Clarke introduces Su, who says Dept. H will use the Master synthoids for training. Heather is generally insubordinate, and Mac takes her out for pizza.
    Director X, Clarke, Proctor, and Huxley are the sinister forces behind Dept. H. They meet to make sinister plans.
    Judd finds the sedated Sasquatch and vows to restore him. In Orloo, the ground rumbles, and Chinook's hand breaks out from the earth.
