Synopsis:	Note: this is a "Flashback" issue, introduced
and concluded by Marvel creator Stan Lee.
	Logan helps a nervous Mac to his hasty wedding ceremony,
to which Heather's parents object because it isn't Catholic.
	Mac remembers working for Jaxon, where he built the first
Weapon Alpha suit, and she pursued him. When Jaxon tried to
sell the suit to the US military, they quit, Mac taking the
cybernetic helmet he had developed previously. He then
convinced Canada to sponsor Dept. H.
	Mac warns Cody about a cosmic ray collector being built
in Orloo, Ontario. Judd is a workman there, and he also
helps in nearby Hull House orphanage, where the Corbos live.
	Mac and Heather honeymoon in the frozen north and are
attacked by a feral Logan, whom they shoot, then nurse. Mac
postpones his second wedding to study and train him as
Weapon X.
	Mac postpones the wedding again to go to Orloo, where the
collector creates a dimensional rift. Suddenly the legendary
Canadian hero Chinook flies into it and is monstrously
transformed. Logan uses an industrial rubber band to
sling-shot Judd into him, knocking him back into the
collector. He, Mac and Heather hold Judd back from being
sucked in, as Chinook and the collector implode.
	Heather orders Mac to the nearest church, where they are
properly wed. Logan catches the bouquet.

Synopsis:	Note: throughout, characters are described in
relation to their astrological signs.
	Mac's nightmare: he trains with Logan, as Weapon Alpha
and Weapon Chi. Mac fells Logan, who recovers and guts him.
Clarke has Mac sign a Prometheus Division waiver before
saving his life.
	Heather's nightmare: she watches Mac die (see iss. I:12).
	Judd's nightmare: Heather lip-locks him, then Mac, then
Madison. They are all taller than he is.
	Judd gets an anonymous message that Mac was abducted. He
finds Heather, now a florist (since Alpha Flight was
suspended in iss. I:130, and her marriage to Mac suspended
since then). They lunch and are kidnapped by soldiers with
sonic guns. They wake in Dept. H, where Clarke shows them a
message from a Quebecois terrorist threatening a chemical
weapons strike in Vancouver. (He demonstrated his sincerity
by killing everyone in Port Radium.)
	Scorpio is also on the tape; Clarke says he is the real
threat. He has (forcibly) assembled a new Alpha Flight to
deal with it.
	Mac has been de-volved to 19 to get rid of the alien
technology in his body (see iss. I:25, 89). This same
High-Evolutionary same process had saved him when Logan
gutted him.
	Walter has been mysteriously transformed and is bestial.
Radius has a force field and is domineering; Flex can bend
and is submissive; Murmur can mind-control with a touch and
is French-Canadian. Heather gets a new suit that controls
geo-thermal energy. Manbot is a big robot.
	Sunfire's power is out of control, and he wants Dept. H's
help. He tries to cross the US-Canada border and is shot
down.
	The Ecliptic can read the future; she advises Scorpio to
strike immediately. He has the terrorist (actually his
captive) broadcast an ultimatum. The un-ready Alpha Flight
goes to Dorion, Quebec, and ineptly fights them. Radius
pushes Taurus into Flex, ho is traumatized when he realizes
he killed him. Alpha Flight captures Virgo, but the Zodiac
captures Madison.
	Heather and Judd confront Clarke, refusing to be on his
team. They go to rescue Madison but are knocked out as they
leave the building.
	Clarke thanks Scorpio, whom he hired for this job;
Scorpio takes the money and declares himself an enemy to the
world.

Synopsis:	An intruder alarm goes off in Dept. H; Clarke
sends the team to apprehend. Turns out to be the Master, and
they fight. They have more trouble with their own teammates:
Mac bickers with Judd for command, Murmur disobeys orders,
Flex is reluctant to fight, and Radius shows up late. But
they win, and the Master disappears. Mac and Heather talk
while they look for him: he is 19 again, and doesn't
consider them married.
	De LaSalle calls Proctor to Hull House; one of the Legacy
orphans is displaying mutant abilities.
	Dept. H has altered Heather and Judd so they won't
remember Zodiac or Madison.
	Huxley and the new Helios Project examine Sunfire; he is
dying of radiation poisoning from his own power.
	Another intruder alarm: Clarke orders the team to split
up and find the Master; each finds a copy with different
armor and weaponry and leads him to the central rotunda.
They switch opponents and easily overcome the Masters.
	Clarke introduces Su, who says Dept. H will use the
Master synthoids for training. Heather is generally
insubordinate, and Mac takes her out for pizza.
	Director X, Clarke, Proctor, and Huxley are the sinister
forces behind Dept. H. They meet to make sinister plans.
	Judd finds the sedated Sasquatch and vows to restore him.
In Orloo, the ground rumbles, and Chinook's hand breaks out
from the earth.

Synopsis:	The weather is rough in Orloo. Someone gives
Judd a secret memo about the death of the Legacy mutant
Cleric. Heather trains with her new suit, not entirely
understanding or trusting it. Ex-members Wildchild and
Shaman read about the new team in the papers.
	Clarke sends the veterans to Orloo to investigate; the
pilot of their plane is shot through the windshield, and Mac
barely misses destroying the church he wed Heather in (iss.
-1) as he lands. Judd investigates Hull House, but De
LaSalle quickly turns him away. Heather and Sasquatch take
the pilot to a hospital, then Sasquatch runs off. Mac and
Manbot investigate the cosmic ray collector (iss. -1) and
see Chinook rising from the dead. He claims to be the wind
and is on a mission of vengeance, starting with Sasquatch,
and Mac who never tried to help him. Battle ensues,
Sasquatch tears Chinook in two, and he dissipates, leaving
strange marks in the grassy field. The team is immediately
recalled because:
	Back at Dept. H, Flex interrupts Radius and Murmur and
gets picked on. The Corbos spy on Sunfire resisting his
bonds. Radius convinces the others to break him out and go
on a joyride to Montreal. (Murmur has to use her power to
convince Sunfire.) They stop on the way for food and bump
into Mesmero, who exults in his good fortune.

first-class villain. Radius explains that Flex got his name
at Hull House as a joke. He can't eat his burger through his
force field without a filter.
	Mesmero stares at them, Radius starts beating on him, so
he mesmerizes him and Murmur, Flex, and Sunfire when they
try to intervene.
	At Dept. H, Mac and Heather yell at Clarke for losing the
kids. Epsilons guard the Beta Flight wing, where people are
suspended in solution.
	Mesmero tells his story: arrested by Alpha Flight (I:43)
and attacked by the Dark Riders (X-Men II:21), he mesmerized
Gauntlet into thinking he killed him. He realized he could
control minds for long periods.
	At Hull House, Lilli is "adopted" into the Prometheus
Division, which also gets the Prometheus Pit on-line.
	Mac and Heather track the kids to the diner and find them
mesmerized and acting like they work there. They call Puck,
Manbot and Sasquatch as reinforcements, and Mesmero makes
the kids attack. They fight around the mesmerized civilians
until Heather forces Murmur to use her power on herself,
freeing her so she can free the rest. But Mesmero catches
Heather, Mac, Puck, and Sasquatch, meantime (Manbot
resists), and has them attack the kids.

food fight in the diner. Sunfire tries to get the kids to

Mesmero and is attacked by Mac. Murmur gets hit in the face
with a pie and attacked by Sasquatch. She commands him to

microverse. She retrieves a tiny warrior and hides this from

then starts freeing the diner's customers. Radius uses Puck
as a shield against Mac, which jars Puck's mind free.
Heather stops Manbot from catching Mesmero, but is attacked
by Sunfire.
	Flex runs away, and when Puck tries to stop him, he
remembers being attacked by a monster in Hull House as a
child. He lashes out at Puck, who is able to calm him down.
	Mesmero makes Mac hold a knife to his throat, as a
hostage. This jars Heather's mind free, and a somehow
conscious Sasquatch knocks Mac into Murmur, who frees him.
