    Synopsis: Alpha Flight attends a conference in Switzerland, with European heroes live by satellite. They are attacked by the ice sculpture, in which is the Brain Drain. He had been a Nazi scientist (Invaders 2), and is now a brain in a jar that can control minds. He says he has planted commands in each hero's mind to kill his own country's leader. Jeanne-Marie switches control of her mind with Aurora, who dashes forward and throws the brain out the window. Alpha Flight splits up to stop the assassinations.
    Walter knocks out the Peregrine in France. Aurora catches a small Micro-Max and shakes him till he passes out. Prodigy takes over Heather's battle suit. She is nearly forced to kill Walesa, but then just turns her suit off, and womphs the brat. Northstar finds out that Shamrock's good luck had shorted out the broadcast before her mind was effected. Kyle womphs Omerta and gets his mask ripped in half. All the heroes reassemble in Switzerland for a party.
    The Master retrieves a sad-eyed Brain Drain as the first member of the new Omega Flight.
