    Synopsis: Attuma wants to use Marrina as bait to lure Namor, and she is still having abdominal pains.
    Judd professes his fondness for Heather, who, still shocked by the realization that Mac manipulated Wolverine and herself, is reluctant to get involved with another man. He chalks it up to his dwarfism.
    Returning to Mansion Alpha, they find Snowbird ill, mad as a bear, and calling for Michael to help her.
    Michael is off in Eskimo territory, being tested by the spirits of caribou, mosquitoes, a wide-mouth bass, and wolves. He bests them all and is given a new costume by Elizabeth, who had been his real tester. His final test is to vanquish the skeletons of Vikings, who centuries before had killed his ancestors. Michael no longer uses a medicine bag, but draws forth Eaglet, his familiar, and calls on other spirits to defeat the skeletons. He then returns to the mansion to aid Snowbird.
