    Synopsis: The team is trying to recapture the new Weapon X, but he is resilient in his body armor. He is a New Zealander, and he is sucking up energy from a power plant.
    Gentry yells at Power for sending Epsilon troops out on Huxley's authority; Huxley is jet-packing to the site.
    Earlier: Heather takes Mac looking for apartments, but when he suggests they live together, she rebuffs him. Flex finds out Radius's father was Unus the Untouchable, and they are not really brothers. Radius has been pushing beyond his limits in the training room, because of guilt over Sasquatch, and Flex rescues him. Puck reads the file sent to him by Kilgrew (iss. 13) and reveals Huxley's secret lab: Diamond Lil in suspension; the new Weapon X. They were infected with a bacteria which is now a parasite in Weapon X and trying to control his mind and spread itself to all humanity.
    The present: while battling Weapon X, the new Alpha Flight runs into the old Alpha Flight, including another Mac.
