She runs from the police, changes into Vindicator, and tries to nab the shooter, but her suit malfunctions near a microwave transmitter, and she is arrested. Canadian officials let her know that Barlow was the intended target, since he was the US Senator who began investigations into aid to Contras in Costa Brava. She is told to stay out of it, but Larry, claiming to be a confidante of the senator, tells her of a scandal involving Zimmerman, gangsters, and rebels in Costa Brava. When he is ambushed, she prevents him being killed and questions his attackers, who were hired by Zimmerman.
    Heather flies to DC investigate, and Wilson kills all his attackers. She arrives to find Zimmerman killed, but nabs the assassin and breaks his hands.
    The Kingpin's plans must be reassessed. Larry's people catch him and throw him out a window. Turns out he was a Costa Bravan spy.
