    Synopsis: Alpha Flight trains against simulations of various versions of Logan. Clarke and Su observe and plan modifications to Heather's conditioning, since she refuses to cooperate. Both she and Radius are angry because Murmur is playing up to Mac. Heather is abducted by an energy monster (last iss.), taken to a lab, and "addled."
    Sunfire tries to escape; he has been turned into part-black and part-fire.
    Northstar is awake and battling bigotry (iss. 6). He says he had been trying to fly past the earth's atmosphere, apparently a suicide attempt.
    Mac gives the team Dept. H's version of Logan's history, painting him as a homicidal maniac. Clarke shows them faked footage of Logan killing Madison, and sends them to apprehend him.
