    Synopsis: Heather and Wolverine defeat Gamma Flight.
    Mac reiterates that he blasted himself to Ganymede 10,000 years ago, was nursed by aliens and returned to earth, found by Roxxon, and left to sleep for two more years, during which his subconscious mind took control of their computers, attacked them when they tried to unplug him, and then Jeffries woke him up. He is now part machine, and he reconciles with Lil, who helped kill him (iss. 12).
    Windshear quits Roxxon and tags along.
    Elizabeth inverts her father's bag over her head to find a spell to return the Remnant Men to normal. The Master retreats, content with his experiments to date. Elizabeth is comatose and is taken to the hospital.
    Heather lets Silver and Auric go home to China; Witchfire joins Alpha; and Nemesis ports away with Wild Child. Wolverine leaves.
    The team reassembles at the hospital, and sees Mac alive. Mulroney announces the re-establishment of Dept. H, and a new Alpha Flight base in Toronto, with Beta Flight for trainees and Gamma Flight for research. Heather readopts the name Guardian.
    Doom plans to hold trade talks with Canada.
