Synopsis:	Severtes was a bishop in Spain who fell in lust
with Beatr╠z and traded his soul to Mephisto for her, not
knowing she'd become a nun. He found a mystical suit of
brass (sealed with Beatr╠z's blood, no less) that hides his
soul until he can breach heaven's gate and trade her soul to
save his. He needs the Solomon Seal to do it, and years ago
Puck and a sorcerer named Modred prevented this.
	Along the way, the bishop beheaded Mephisto's servant
Dargil, who now he eats souls to make new servants for him.
	Radius recklessly attacks the bishop and gets a face full
of Dargil, but Puck saves him. The Flight can't destroy the
zombie townspeople, but Flex flexes his whole body to throw
them back, and they enter the Tower, which is an Escher-like
maze. Dargil attacks and zombifies Puck. Radius uses his
forcefield to smash the bishop; Heather's Catholicism and
Flex's forearm save her from Dargil.
	Puck leads the bishop to the seal; they approach heaven,
and the Flight attacks them. Puck's soul, meanwhile, floats
with others, whom he bands with to fight the bishop. Their
combined strength allows him to return to his body; he uses
the Seal on the bishop's armor, and his liberated soul is
claimed by Mephisto.
	The Flight is returned to Canada; the zombies are freed;
Honey Lemon of Big Hero 6 advertises the next issue.
	Murmur gives herself a new outfit; Lilli is now Ghost
Girl, phasing through walls.

Synopsis:	Big Hero 6 is Japan's only super-hero team, with
new HQ in the Cool World Amusement Park, which is suddenly
attacked by a giant shape-shifting dinosaur. They
counter-attack, rescue civilians, and wish Sunfire were
there to help.
	Sunfire storms into Dept. H, looking for Huxley and
learns things are better since Gentry replaced Clarke. Honey
Lemon calls for help, so he returns to Japan.
	Gentry grills Huxley about his exposing Sunfire to "Zero
Fluid." Flex bumps into Lilli, and hearts twitter.
	Northstar is about to return to Dept. H, to get help
finding his sister, when Sasquatch and Shaman stop him. They
have her.
	Alpha Flight goes to Japan and helps Big Hero 6 clean up
the amusement park. Honey Lemon notes that they are "the
fourth most popular super-hero team in all of North
America!"; Manbot tells Hiro he is entirely synthetic. They
find a cub scout who drew pictures of X; they seem to have
come to life.
	They split up and follow the boy's other drawings; Flex,
Radius and Go Go stay behind to wait for Sunfire and realize
X was still there, in the shape of a toy bear. It eats
Radius; Sunfire arrives and blasts it.
	X changes shape and flies off; the Samurai has read ahead
and is there to attack it. Sunfire, Mac and Heather join in,
seeming to kill the monster, but rupturing Mt. Fuji.
Fortunately, Honey Lemon has a volcano cover in her purse.
Sunfire stays in Japan.
	Huxley has a secret, new Weapon X lab in the basement,
and it has escaped.

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.

Synopsis:	Predictably, the Alphas fight each other, and
Weapon X escapes. Shaman blames Weapon X for Aurora's
predicament: he infected her, and the bacteria is slowly
eating her personalities. They need to capture him to learn
how to cure her. They don't trust the new team because of
their connection with Dept. H.
	The old Alphas teleport away; the new Alphas find and
interrogate Huxley. He claims to have been forced to run the
Weaopn X experiments; Puck knows otherwise.
	Weapon X comes across a sewer worker; the bacteria in him
wants to eat, but the human in him wins and runs off.
	Mac wonders if he's Mac. Mac wonders if he's Mac.
Sasquatch tells the old one how Dept. H wiped his brain and
sent him into space to die; he crashed in Antarctica where
Sasquatch found him (iss. 13).
	Weapon X is headed for the Hell Pounder atomic
incinerator in British Columbia. Both teams pursue. Snowbird
(dead since Vol. I:44), is already there and tells them to
turn back.

Synopsis:	Snowbird turns into a polar bear and attacks.
Gentry shows no fear, realizing it's an illusion, a warning
from Shaman.
	The team sees the Hellpounder, which is a disposal site:
a deep-drilled hole with nuclear blasts. Weapon X has Huxley
and wants him to detonate the bomb, to crack his suit open
and infect the world. Huxley thinks his powerful intellect
will be able to dominate the bacteria and rule the world.
	Aurora is channeling Weapon X. Macs are empathing each
other. Manbot is sparking; Radius envelops him with his
force field and smothers the fire. Old and new Alphas fight,
despite misgivings. Mac and Mac finally call a cease-fire
and get everyone to go after Weapon X. They fail to catch
him, and then the Hellpounder's containment field goes up.
	Aurora explains that the human part of Weapon X took the
bacteria from her and wants to destroy it in the nuclear
blast. He jumps in the hole.
	Mac the younger gets Puck to trick Huxley into lowering
the shield; he orders Shaman and Heather to retrieve Weapon
X, and Flex and Manbot to defuse the bomb. Macs and Radius
erect their own shielding, in case the bomb goes off.
	Manbot's system fails; the bomb is about to go off.
Weapon X breaks free and holds the pin in the bomb, until it
falls down the hole: a noble self-sacrifice in the end.
	Huxley escapes; Gentry assembles all the Alphas. He
doesn't reveal which Mac is real, because they've both
proven themselves. Puck and Heather are dating. Gentry holds
a celebration.
	Note: this is the end of the series.

Synopsis:	Battle Harbor, Newfoundland, has been
mysteriously flooded, and Alpha arrives to rescue and
investigate. Heather sees a new tidal wave and goes to find
its source, while Radius surfs.
	The team drops the victims at the hospital and then goes
after Heather. Mac generates an E-M pulse to find her,
disabling the team's jet. Just before they crash, Inhumans
rescue them, carrying them to their beautiful island-city of
Attilan. Heather is there, safe but dazed, having passed
through a mysterious mist.
	Karnak explains: Inhuman scientists exposed their baby to
the mutagenic Terrigen mists, twice. An earthquake busted
the temple, releasing the mist and causing the tidal waves.
	The baby's genetic potential shows; he causes a statue of
Black Bolt's father Randac to rampage through the city.
Black Bolt goes to the baby and manipulates his energy
impulses; the statue falls. The baby can control stone and
earth and has reached out to Heather through her geothermal
suit. Part of her wants to stay and mother the baby, but she
knows she would never belong there. Black Bolt breaks the
psychic link, and the Flight departs.

Synopsis:	Hiro is 13 year-old rich, fatherless genius and
Sunfire's biggest fan. Bayamax is his synthetic,
dragon-morphing guardian, who gets him up for school, where
he gives a lecture to his class about Sunfire. 
	Sunfire's powers went recently out of control (because of
Magneto's E-M pulse, X-Men II:25, Oct. 1993), and he had
been a captive of the Japanese government, until the Silver
Samurai and Wolverine broke him out.
	The Samurai meets Hiro in school and offers him a spot on
Japan's new super-hero team. Hiro makes him admit his mother
already said no, and returns to class.
	That night his Sunfire-detector goes off: he's back in
Japan. Hiro and Bayamax track him to an abandoned monastery
and see that he is dying, his body half-burnt from within.
He and Bayamax squabble, but the Samurai arrives with Go Go,
who turns into a ball of fire and separates the combatants,
and Honey Lemon, who pulls a radiation-dampening blanket
from her "Power Purse" and catches Sunfire. He blasts, to
scare them off, then collapses. He has come home to die,
since Dept. H could not find a cure. He goes with the team.
	Hiro returns home to find his mother a pile of ashes, and
Everwraith wanting to control him.

Synopsis:	Honey Lemon demands to stay with Sunfire while
the doctors run tests on him. He doesn't trust these doctors
any more than he trusted Dept. H.
	Alarms sound; Hiro and Bayamax have intruded and are
surrounded by armed guards; he triggers an E-M pulse to
disarm them, then hacks into the computer.
	The Samurai arrives and makes short shrift of Bayamax; Go
Go arrives and knocks Hiro away from the computer. He
explains: he needs help or his mother will die.
	Everwraith is in downtown Tokyo. He is the astral
embodiment of everyone who died in the atomic blasts in
World War II. He wants to wreak havoc on complacent Japan,
so it will rise from the ashes again.
	Hiro explains to Oshima: Everwraith had ported his mother
away and will kill her unless he sees Sunfire. He tricks
them: he pours a glass of water on Bayamax to reboot him.
Oshima relents and lets him see Sunfire, who is on his
deathbed. Hiro gets angry and walks out, because Sunfire has
given up.

Synopsis:	Everwraith is wreaking havoc in Tokyo; the team
confronts him, but they haven't learned to be a team yet.
The Samurai orders them back, and attacks, slicing
Everwraith into pieces, but he revives.
	Sunfire arrives and asks Everwraith what he wants: he
wants Japan to grow strong through adversity. He blasts
Sunfire, siphoning off his atomic energy using solar panels.
	Honey Lemon coats Everwraith with ectoplasm, which means
he can be touched. She and the Samurai do, hard. Meanwhile
Go Go tries and fails to smash the panels, and Bayamax frees
Hiro's mom.
	Hiro tells Sunfire to release the kinetic charge in his
body, which he assumed was part of Dept. H's treatment;
Sunfire knew nothing about it. He now uses it to break
Everwraith's hold on him. He blasts the solar panels, and
appears to disintegrate.
	Hiro stays late at the funeral; Sunfire shows up. He is
neither dead nor dying, and he is returning to Canada to
find out why he had been misled.
