    Synopsis: Following the end of Alpha Flight, Clarke instructs PRIME to remove Northstar from the public eye.
    In Ibiza, Spain, Northstar has been partying. He is annoyed by the press, so he annoys them back. He goes off alone, and decides he is miserable. He is surprised by Raul in his room. PRIME attacks the wrong guy.
    Heather calls Northstar to warn him about Clarke, and that Ward was killed, and he will be blamed. He flies off to clear his head, just before PRIME catches up with him. Max, a nephew of Raymonde Belmonde (see Alpha Flight 7), he found him as a child and raised him), tells him he has been threatened. Northstar realizes all his old friends from Separatiste days are being harassed.
    He gets away from a fumbling PRIME and flies to Paris to protect Mariel, not aware that Arcade is waiting for him.
