comes to and finds herself in a darkroom. The only thing she can
hear are two voices arguing, as she stands up a light bulb dimly lights
the room and she notices Electrode holding onto it. She also find
Professor Corn in the room, they tell her she was brought there to solve
the problem of cellular structure with the machine. Venom learns
that the machine will actually create a clone of the nova and when the
two touch they will both explode, and that the clone will be attracted
to the original. Venom refuses to help until Halloween Jack steps
in and changes her mind, she then completes the work on the machine with
the help of Electrode and Professor Corn. Angel and Tempest stay
back at Nova Corps to search for Venom and to put some of the clues from
the folder together. Drax talks to Puck and finds that Sonique has
the coordinates from where he took the folder, Drax tries to call her,
but is unable to reach her. He then gets into his corvette and heads
at hyper speed back up to Oregon to meet with Sonique. However on
his way up he discovers and ambush of shadows and novas waiting for him,
he hides his corvette and flies the rest of the way invisible. When
he gets there he finds that Sonique and her team look pretty beaten up,
he asks Sonique for the coordinates and tells her to be careful as he believes
she is being setup. She gives him the coordinates and Drax finds
they are in Africa. He heads back to his corvette, when Drax gets
there he finds that the armies of the shadows have spanned all around and
are looking for him. Drax gets in his corvette and tries to drive
away, but one of the shadows is able to blast the corvette with a radiation
gun before Drax can escape. He calls Angel and Tempest to pick him
up in the jet from Oregon, they immediately leave to go and get him.
In the meantime Drax starts to deal with the people that destroyed his
car. When the jet arrives it hovers over the battle field, Drax now
realizing that the shadows will start to shoot at it call Tempest and asks
him to freeze the ground. Tempest does so and freezes everyone, revealing
Drax in a coat of frost. Drax flies to the jet as a nova takes a
swing at him from the ground with a tree, but Drax is able to make aboard
the jet without being harmed. The team then heads off to Africa to
find Venom and stop the Shadow Master.
Rage Against the Machine
team arrives in Africa, when they get there Angel and Tempest head out
to find the coordinates, and Drax recovers from his fighting with the shadows.
Angel and Tempest discover that the coordinates lead to a mountain protected
by a force field. Meanwhile in the jet Drax gets a call from Sonique
that asks him for help as they are losing the battle to the shadows in
Oregon. Drax immediately calls Puck and asks him for help, after
sometime of arguing he agrees. He then calls Drax back and says that
the Soni are safe and offers a gift of friendship. Drax agrees and
he finds a naked Sonique dropped off in the jet with him. Drax covers
her up and calls Puck back, who agrees to take her home this time.
Angel call Drax in the jet and tell him that they found a mountain protected
by a force field. Drax heads out still feeling a little weak from
his earlier confrontation. After sometime of trying to get in, the
team finds that there are shadows patrolling the perimeter around the mountain.
Drax knocks one out and takes his uniform in order to get inside.
He then meets with one of the other shadows patrolling the perimeter and
finds that they are about to test the machine, and that the machine will
create a clone of the nova and they will explode upon contact. Drax
talks the other guard into getting into the base so they can watch the
festivities, the guard agrees and they make their way into the base.
There Drax is taken to a room where there is a machine with Electrode strapped
in it. Venom and Professor Corn are held at gun point by nine other
guards, while the Shadow Master and Halloween Jack watch from behind protected
glass. The machine begins to make a bluish colored clone of Electrode,
as the clone is formed Electrode screams for help. Venom tries to
help him, but is unable to. Drax sneaks behind the machine and is
able to break it enough to stop the cloning process. However he is
too late and the Electrode clone is set free, Drax frees Electrode and
kills his clone. Drax then is able to knock out the guards holding
Venom and Professor Corn as he leads the three of them to safety.
On his way out he destroys the machine with a radiation gun and notices
that the Shadow Master and Halloween Jack have disappeared. Meanwhile,
outside the mountain Angel and Tempest notice the guards leaving the base
and heading for the jet. Tempest heads toward the jet and creates
a gale to blow them away, as he does so Angel disarms some of the shadows
trying to shoot at Tempest. When Angel looks up she sees Halloween
Jack appear behind Tempest, Tempest tries to dodge but is unable to and
gets cut across his gut. Angel grabs the now unconscious Tempest
and flies him away to a tribal village where they agree to take care of
him. She then flies back to the mountain only to see Halloween Jack
disappear from the jet, and watch the jet fly up and hover. Meanwhile
Drax is able to brake the others out of the mountain base, as soon as they
are outside Professor Corn disappears and Electrode it taken in a ring
of smoke. Venom begins to look at the jet while Angel goes to find
Tempest. As soon as Drax steps on the jet it hyper thrusts into the
mountain destroying it. When Angel reaches Tempest she finds the
tribal people worshipping him as a king, and they have pictures of a golden
winged goddess giving him to them. She wakes him up and discovers
that the village had tattooed him, they then leave and head back to meet
up with Venom and Drax. They find the jet destroyed, and take a commercial
jet out of Kenya to get home. But when the reach their lay over in
New York Drax is taken to a hanger and asked to sign papers as Sonique
has given him one of the Soni jets to replace the now destroyed Nova Corps
jet, the team then heads back to Chicago.
team learns that Sally is putting together a calendar and meet with her
and the photographer in order to stop them. The convince Sally to
use action pictures from the missions and not do a photography session.
The team also gets a new jet from Wilson Enterprises, this one being a
lot more armored and tougher. Nova Corps is then hired by a Rashoud
Facility in New Jersey to investigate the death of two of its doctors and
five of its patients. When the team gets there they find the Directive
have already arrived and have cleaned most of the evidence up. Venom
is able to go to the morgue and perform an autopsy on the bodies, there
she finds the doctors were ripped apart while the five nova patients had
their nodes surgically removed, and that something had wrapped around their
heads. Back at the facility Angel, DK, and Tempest learn that whatever
these things where they crawled in through the air vents. Drax turns
invisible and takes a look through some of the Directive evidence only
to find that this attack is linked with a Rashoud facility in California
and a homicide in Nebraska involving all novas. The team then learns
that the line from California to New Jersey forms on orbital pattern, so
they take the jet and head for outer space. There they find the cob,
which quickly disappears and make a course adjustment. The team barely
escapes some of Professor Corn's robots as his ship disappears. DK
and Tempest quickly plot Corn's course and find that it would take him
to Chicago. The team heads home and goes to the Rashoud facility
in Chicago and sets up security cameras. Angel, Tempest, and Venom
watch back at Nova Corps while Drax and DK cover the building there.
Later that night the Nova Corps building is attacked by Corn destroyers,
most of the building is destroyed and DK runs back to help his team mates.
Venom is able to imprison a destroyer in a tree while Tempest blows the
others away. While he is gone, Drax stays at the facility and notices
hundreds of small spider like robots break into the building and start
to attack the children there. Drax is able to fight most of them
off, but when he sees on girl who doesn't make it, he goes into rage and
starts attacking the robots without focus. The team is able to take
care of the Corn destroyers and head to the facility to help Drax, Angel
is able to get a few of the children out of the building, but when DK arrives
he unleashes a blast and takes out most of the building, and drives the
robots away. As soon as they are gone, DK absorbs the damage he caused
back into himself, hurting himself severely. He then takes some more
of the damage from some of the children that were hurt from his power stunt,
as he drops to the floor. The team arrives to find DK dead, not even
his power to destroy objects seems to be working. Tempest immediately
gets upset and leaves into the now oncoming thunderstorm. Angel and
Venom work with Dr. Morris, head of the facility, to gather the children
that survived and put the ones that died into a room until the authorities
arrive. Drax takes DK back to the Nova Corps building to find the
building destroyed, he then heads back to the facility. On the way
back he notices DK's body start to crackle with entropic energy as DK awakens
and seems to be all right. Drax shows the team who are happy to see
their teammate alive again. The team returns to the Nova Corps building
as the technicians arrive to repair and, and to plan their next move against
DK is finished resting he begins to work with the technicians to rebuild
the Nova Corps building. While DK is working the rest of the team
meets to try and find a way to track down Professor Corn. Soon Drax
gets a call from a technician in the lobby asking him to come down and
break up a fight. When Drax and the team arrives they see Charlene
and a technician fighting. When the pull them apart they discover
that Charlene was fighting over a bagel, and the technician who stole her
bagel was in fact Fabin. When the team confronts Fabin they find
he is disguised as a technician in order to place a bag of the spider robots
called stalkers. DK takes the bag and destroys them all and Drax
follows Fabin back to a shuttle hidden in an alley. Drax sneaks aboard
the shuttle with Fabin as the team tracks him on the GPS. They find
that he disappears somewhere in space. The team heads for the jet
and plots a coarse to the place where Drax disappeared. When Drax
gets off the shuttle with Fabin he finds himself in a giant hanger bay,
Fabin walks through a doorway where beams of light scan him. Drax
not wanting to set off the alarms by teleporting tries so sneak through
the door hoping his invisibility will keep him undetected. As he
goes through the door the beams of light scan him, when he gets to the
other side all of the doors in the room close and lock. Then a hologram
of Professor Corn appears and tells Drax to show himself, Drax does and
Corn tells him that he will extract his node and add it to his experiment.
As they talk Professor Corn notices that the Nova Corps jet is under way
and approaching the Cob. Professor Corn leaves Drax and goes to deal
with the rest of the team. Professor Corn addresses the team and
Angel tells him to give them Drax back, she then phases and tries to enter
the Cob but fails. She then notices several stalkers glowing gold
released to deal with her, she they are Angel unphases. She also
notices several non golden stalkers heading for the jet. Some of
the non phased stalkers go after Angel and she hyper speeds away and then
heads back to the jet. DK heads to the top of the to fight off the
stalkers, he takes several blasts at them before they reach the jet.
Once they get to the jet they try to drill into the jet and DK's head.
DK it able to deal with the ones attacking him, meanwhile Tempest locked
down the controls and systems on the jet and then blasted a bolt of lightning
through the hull of the jet destroying the rest of the stalkers.
The golden stalkers then move in after Angel and she phases DK as he protects
her by using his powers. Meanwhile on the Cob, Drax uses one of Electrode's
pulses to disrupt the force fields in the Cob and is able to teleport to
the jet while DK continues to protect Angel. After sometime they
defeat the stalkers and the jet tries to leave as the Cob locks on with
a tractor beam. DK then goes back outside and blasts the Cob to destroy
the tractor beam. The jet then hyper thrusts with DK still on the
hull, but they stop and get him inside before they enter the atmosphere.
Then Professor Corn contacts the jet asking them to surrender, but before
the team agrees they ask Professor Corn his plan. Professor Corn
tells them that he is building a nova with the combination of all of the
novas into one nova named Goliath and that their powers and nodes will
be added to him as well. The team agrees that they have to destroy
this nova with all powers of all the other novas. Tempest takes and
re-programs the virus called Ludo that the Goblin King used to take over
the Soni satellite system, and set it to go off as soon as the team set
off their communicators. Ludo gets programmed to shutdown the Cobs
systems and activate the hyper-thrusters to head towards outer space.
When the team arrives they find Fabin meets them to escort them to the
stalkers to remove their nodes, Tempest then activates Ludo. The
team convinces Fabin to show them Goliath, when they see him DK notices
that he can unbalance the quantum signatures within him and that would
cause a giant quantum explosion. DK unbalances Goliath as Angel convinces
Fabin to take them back to the jet, as they do so, they meet Professor
Corn, and as Professor Corn tries to stop them he notices that his computer
system does not respond. The team is able to get on the jet and escape
as the Cob hyper thrusts into space just before it blows up into a blue
light show. When the team returns they notice that Sally has put
together some Nova Corps merchandise including a T-shirt of DK saving the
kids at the Rashoud facility. Angel and Drax then make sure to pass
those out to the kids that DK saved, when DK finds out he is less that
mission starts out with everyone working on smaller problems. Drax
goes to Tennessee to fix a domestic disturbance problem, but as he leaves
town he sees it destroyed in a pillar of fire. When he gets back
to town he finds a man in a trench coat with a priest's collar walking
through the town blessing people. Drax grabs him and asks him what
happened and the man says he is a messenger of God here to bring about
the end of the world. Drax releases him and the man disappears in
a blast of fire. Drax contacts the team to inform them of what happened
and to keep their eyes open. Drax then gets a mission to investigate
an airplane crash near New York. Angel starts to get weird missions
and goes to meet Drax there. There in the wreckage the team discovers
that the plane was carrying cargo from Labrynth Technologies to Pressman
International. Venom backs this claim up by telling the team that
Labrynth Technologies sold BioMedical Plus to Pressman International.
As Angel and Drax dig through the wreckage to save the people and look
for clues, Tempest tells Venom he found the fire guy and heads to Wisconsin.
Soon Tempest contacts Drax and tells him he has the priest pinned against
the wall. When the team gets to Wisconsin they find that Tempest
is gone, and the only thing left is a melted communicator. Angel
gets a vision where her and the priest talk, he tells her his name is Gabriel
and that Tempest is safe, when Angel comes to she is not quite herself.
The team tracks Gabriel to Michigan where they encounter him after destroying
another town flying above the ruble on wings of fire. Drax attempts
to attack him, but finds that he is phased and that he cannot touch him.
Soon Gabriel disappears as Angel stares off in the distance, when the team
looks around they find Tempest standing there looking confused. As
Drax talks to him, he finds that Tempest has been mentally manipulated
and believes that Gabriel is his father. Drax now upset calls upon
his friend Grykus to take Tempest back to Nova Corps and watch him.
Drax and Venom wake Angel up from her vision, and find her not to be herself.
She tells the team that she keeps having visions of her and Gabriel.
After a while Angel snaps and claims that Tempest is her and Gabriel's
son, and she hyper-flies back to Nova Corps to get him. Drax calls
Grykus and gets back to Tempest who starts to fight Drax, Drax knocks him
out and has Venom put him on a venomox drip to keep him unconscious and
has Grykus and Venom take him away. Angel returns to the building
and her and Drax fight over Tempest and Drax tells her that if she wants
a son with Gabriel to go have one, but to leave his alone. Angel
takes off and Drax heads to meet Grykus and Venom back in Michigan.
Angel then contacts Puck to have him help her to get Tempest and tells
him that Drax has been mentally dominated. Puck agrees to help and
heads to Michigan to find Venom, there he talks to her and finds out that
it is Angel with the problem. Puck follows Grykus to Tempest's hiding
spot and takes him. When everyone meets in Michigan Angel and Drax
continue fighting over Tempest as Grykus and Venom watch. Soon a
giant head of Puck rises from the ground and asks everyone what is going
on. He then tells everyone that he has Tempest and will return him
to the highest bidder. Just then Gabriel appears and hypnotizes Puck
as Puck disappears. Gabriel goes to Angel and takes her by the hand
as the two of them disappear in fire. Venom notices that they both
touched while being phased, and Drax begins to get upset fearing that he
has lost Tempest. Just then he notices Puck standing next to him,
Puck says that people shouldn't try to hypnotize his illusions and that
he will take Tempest away and keep him safe since the team is worth more
money to him in the long run. Drax then contacts Sonique and hires
Empath to help sort out Angel's mind. The team pick up Empath from
Boston and gather together back at Nova Corps. There they find Angel
and Empath is able to un-manipulate her emotions. Then Angel finds
Gabriel's mind as Drax turns invisible and Angel attunes and holos him
so that he will be unseen. Angel then goes to Gabriel as Drax punches
him and takes him out, Angel much upset at the death of Gabriel takes the
body away to bury it. Drax has Puck return Tempest and Empath fixes
his emotions too. Venom runs some tests on the Gabriel's blood from
Drax's shirt and finds that the DNA matches Angel's exactly. Tempest
feeling upset at hurting his father gets tickets to the Cubs game for him
and Drax. Drax then surprises Tempest by calling the manager of the
Cubs and having it setup that Tempest could throw the first pitch.
Tempest and Drax are then able to enjoy one, uneventful, normal day together.
mission starts off with the team discovering a note from Drax stating that
he had to go away on personal business for five days and not to contact
him. The team also notices that DK is not around either and has disappeared
somewhere in Chicago. Angel tries to contact him and he tells her
he has an infection and doesn't want to endanger the team at the moment.
Meanwhile, Venom gets asked to go to New York to be part of a panel for
a science conference, she agrees and leaves immediately. When she
gets there, after a few speakers she notices that Dr. Reginald Cyrus is
introduced, and recognizes him as Nocturn. He makes several comments
about trusting colleagues, and then makes a presentation on Venom's plant
fiber research. Venom quickly returns to her room after the conference
only to find a package there. In it is a video and two viles, one
red and one blue. Venom watches the video and finds Nocturn there
warning her and Nova Corps to stay out of the way, and if they do not he
will release the red vile onto the population of Chicago, he also assures
her that the people already have the blue vile inside of them. Venom
quickly returns to Nova Corps to begin testing and to find out what evil
Nocturn has done to Chicago. Venom discovers that if the two chemicals
are mixed together with living cells they create a bacteria that will eat
the cell within a second. Meanwhile Angel and Tempest find DK and
discover that his old mentor Cthulu is living inside of him, trying to
take control of him. DK also tells him that he will not release Cthulu
as he will take revenge against the team. Venom informs her teammates
as to what she has found, but the team wonders how the people are getting
the blue chemical. Angel requests that DK return to Nova Corps, on
his way back he is attacked by several giant sized, hairless dogs.
He is able to subdue them and bring on of them back for Venom to study.
Venom discovers that they have a virus that has mutated them and that it
is contagious and only infects dogs. As Venom begins to study this
new virus, Tempest comes in and tells everyone to watch a commercial, as
they do they notice Electrode selling Aquatic Bottled water on TV.
DK leaves immediately to get one of these bottles to water for Venom to
study, however he does not return. Tempest is able to track him down
and finds that Cthulu has take over, Tempest blasts DK with lightning bringing
him back to his senses, they get another bottle of water and head back
to Nova Corps. Venom discovers that the water does indeed contain
the blue chemical and another one that makes the water addictive.
DK grabs Venom's video and goes out to find Electrode and talk him out
of this. While DK is gone Nova Corps is attacked by another pack
of dog creatures. Tempest and Angel fight them as Venom works in
the lab to find a cure for the bacteria. When the battle is over
Tempest gets stung by a wasp and Angel rushes him up to Venom to look at
him. Venom finds that Tempest has been infected by a mutagen that
causes his plant fiber to start growing on its own, hence killing Tempest.
Soon after Venom gets a message from Nocturn gloating over his attack on
Drax and stating that he has exacted revenge on Drax for killing him.
DK returns and is able to slow down the plant growth while Angel gets a
cryogenic pod to put Tempest in stasis. Afterwards DK leaves again
to rest and contain Cthulu while Venom works diligently in her lab to undo
all of the biological evil Nocturn has caused.
leaves Nova Corps to handle Cthulu as he slowly begins to lose the ability
to keep Cthulu under control. Drax returns to Nova Corps from his
own mission only to find the building in chaos as he walks into the lobby.
He quickly finds Angel as she begins to tell him everything that has happened.
Drax discovers that Nocturn is still alive, and that he has mutated Tempest's
plant fiber skeleton and that Tempest is locked in a cryogenic pod.
Angel also tells Drax about how Nocturn has the city infected with a chemical
that could kill them if mixed with another, and how he has mutated the
dog population into monsters. While Angel tells this to Drax, Venom
continues to work on her cures for the diseases that Nocturn has created.
Shortly the team notices that the lights in the Nova Corps building begin
to glow wildly before all of the electrical equipment begins to explode.
Angel heads to the main computer system and locks it down so the power
surge did not damage it. Then her and Drax head to the power company
only to find Electrode there. Angel telepathically blasts Electrode's
mind to stop him from over powering the Nova Corps building. Electrode
stops and destroys the power plant and escapes before Angel and Drax can
talk to him. The team returns to the Nova Corps building and begins
to put it back together when they find on the news that Dr. Alexis Montgomery
has killed several of her colleagues from the conference and that authorities
are after her. The team then decides that Venom must hide and she
takes the cryo-pod with Tempest and heads for her hideout. She is
able to sneak away and avoid being caught by the Directive as she leaves
the building for her hideout. There she continues her work while
Drax and Angel continue to find a way to deal wtih Nocturn. Soon
the I-Spy program alerts Angel and Drax that there is someone in the Nova
Corps building, Angel can barely sense a mind as Drax feels someone staring
at him, but they are unable to detect the person. Soon Nocturn contacts
Angel and requests that Venom stop hiding and turn herself into the Directive
or he will release the red chemical and kill the city of Chicago.
Angel is able to get him to agree to 24 hours to produce Venom, Nocturn
agrees but Drax unable to stand Nocturn begins to mock him and reveals
the fact that he is not dead as Nocturn had thought. Shortly thereafter
the Nova Corps building is flooded with a swarm of wasps, but Drax is able
to get out before getting stung. Drax is then contacted by Electrode,
Electrode tells Drax that he has been infected with the blue chemical and
that is why he is helping Gaia and Nocturn. Drax offers to cure him
if Electrode agrees to help Nova Corps defeat Gaia and Nocturn. Electrode
agrees and Drax takes him to Venom to be cured. Angel talks with
Electrode as he recovers while Drax heads out into the city. Soon
Drax sees a mother and child being attacked by a pack of the dog creatures.
Drax tries to help them and gets bit in the process, after all the dogs
are dead and the family is safe, Drax notices his skin begins to itch.
Suspecting he has been infected with the plant fiber mutation, he calls
Venom who also puts him in a cryo-pod before his plant fiber begins to
kill him. Nocturn contacts Angel and again requests that Venom surrender
to the Directive and to gloat over getting Drax. Angel assures him
that she is working on it. Meanwhile Venom is able to find a cure
for the plant fiber mutation by re-starting the original reaction and making
a new skeleton grow over the old one. She does this to Drax which
causes him a great deal of pain and leaves him for a few hours to recover.
She then performs this process on Tempest, but it will take longer on him
than Drax. Angel and Electrode break into the bottled water company
and replace the blue chemical with their cure, but as they leave Electrode
is severely wounded by the mutant dogs. Angel takes him back to Venom
who help stabilize him. When Drax comes to Electrode is feeling better
and Drax gets Electrode to help him intercept a shipment of the chemical
to the bottled water company in an attempt to sneak aboard the van and
find his way back to the red chemical to destroy it. When the get
to the van Electrode helps Drax sneak aboard without the drivers noticing,
but one of the drivers gets out and heads to where Electrode is hiding
and calls him a designate number. Drax realizing that the drivers
of the van are actually knights, gets back out and saves Electrode once
more. Nocturn contacts Angel and tells her that he has a new backer
and his patience has run out and that he will infect the city. Drax
and Angel quickly head out to stop him. Angel asks Electrode and
finds that there is a slaughter house where they are infecting mosquitoes
with the red chemical and that they will also ship it out with the bottled
water. Angel heads to the slaugher house and finds three knights
there as the mosquitoes are feeding on cows infected with the red chemical.
She quickly dumps the blue chemical on the cows killing the mosquitoes.
As she flees from the knights she notices that Nocturn is there also, but
leaves anyway. Drax heads for the water plant and finds a van full
of red chemical driven by knights. He is able to take one of them
out before they adapt to him, he then teleports and turns invisible just
as Angel arrives to destroy another before they adapt to her. Once
they adapt to her she phases into the ground while the invisible Drax destroys
the rest of them before they adapt again. Angel quickly destroys
the water plant and red chemical as Drax heads back to the Nova Corps building.
Drax and Angel meet with the Directive and give them enough evidence to
clear Venom's name. Tempest wakes up and is healed, while Charlie
and Charlene fight over the last few bottles of the addictive water.
returns and finds the team swamped with missions as the people of
Chicago begin to go through withdrawals due to the addiction to the bottled
water. When the team reports in for the noon meeting, they find that
Drax does not return. The team tries to contact him but is unsuccessful
in locating him, even Angel cannot pinpoint his mind. After the meeting
Tempest heads out to find Drax while the rest of the team lures the remaining
mutant dog creatures from Nocturn out so that DK can destroy them.
Soon Baron Von Freezemore contacts DK and ask if Nova Corps would help
him, he also says that he tried to talk to Charlie but Charlie told him
to get bent. As DK talks to Baron Von Freezemore the phone goes dead,
DK informs the team of what has happened. Angel uses her telepathy
to bring Charlie to his senses and they work with him on helping Baron
Von Freezemore. As they head back to the Nova Corps building Drax
checks in and asks what is going on. Angel says he has been missing
for about five hours. Drax tells Angel he woke up in his room missing
his eufiber and covered in blood with no memory of what happened.
The team works with Charlie and are able to get away from Chicago and over
to Latnia to help Baron Von Freezemore. Angel has a vision of Latnia
being hit by meteors. When they arrive they find a giant, black,
cylinder reaching from the ground and all the way into outer space covering
all of Latnia. DK notices that the black energy seems to be absorbing
quantum, and Tempest is unable to scan within it. They head into
space where the field is weaker, there DK is able to absorb some of the
energy and open a hole in the field. Angel ties a rope to herself
and enters, as soon as she does her golden wings disappear and DK tried
to pull her out but is only able to pull out the rope without Angel.
The hole fixes itself and closes leaving Angel trapped inside. The
team heads back down towards the ground and flies the jet into the energy
field, the notice the all feel weaker and the jet immediately is brought
down to land on the ground despite their attempts to steer it. Once
inside the notice that everything has a bluish tint to it and that the
black energy has created a wall. The notice several Latnians trying
to get out, but cannot escape through the wall. The team also notices
that their powers are gone, the team heads for the capital but finds Angel
on the way, she stops them and tells them she had a vision of them dying
on the steps of the capital. The team discovers that even though
they cannot use their powers, their taint is still working. Tempest
and Venom head back to the jet to use the scanners and learn more about
what is going on, while Drax, Angel, and DK head to the capital building
to try and find Baron Von Freezemore. There on the capital near the
capital they see several dead bodies in the courtyard, Angel and DK look
for survivors while staying hidden. Drax tries to sneak up when a
giant black creature comes out of the capital and starts looking around.
Suddenly giant red eyes appear and on and it calls to Angel and Drax, then
it pauses and goes back into the building. While Drax lays there
amongst the bodies he finds Henry Opdahl, the prime minister of Latnia,
still alive and begging for help. Drax is able to sneak him back
to Angel and DK and they head towards the jet so that Venom can look at
him. Venom operates on Henry and stabilizes him, she tells them that
his bodily fluids were drained from him. Tempest tells the team that
Venom and him discovered that the meteors that crashed are emitting some
kind of anit-quantum radiation that is phasing everything it touches into
this world. The team hears screams and gun shots near the jet, everyone
but Venom heads out to see what is going on, there they find two of the
creatures attacking some of the Latnians, Drax sees a little girl being
attacked and breaks into a rage destroying both creatures. Soon the
giant red eyes appear on the energy wall as the villagers run for their
lives. It talks to Angel and asks her to return, it is then that
Drax and Angel realize who this being is, and remembers the creature as
Brimstone. Brimstone then releases more of the black creatures to
attack the team, Drax is injured and as he attempts to fight his way out,
the team hears the scream of Tempest as a sandstorm blows down the hill
and onto them all. DK is able to grab Angel and Drax and dig a tunnel
using his powers to destroy the sand. When the storm is over the
team emerges, Drax pulls one of the creatures out of the sand to take back
to Venom. When they return to the jet Venom fixes Drax up and examines
the creature only to learn it is an anti-quantum, biological creature.
They also theorize that they might be able to make it back to their own
world if the stop the radiation from the meteors, Venom stays to find a
way to mutate eufiber to do so, while Tempest and DK go to find a meteor.
Angel and Drax head back to the capital to look for Baron Von Freezemore
again. When Tempest and DK find one the notice that if they move
it, the wall moves with it. DK moves the meteor over Tempest and
he disappears, but then comes back through the wall. Tempest says
he made it out of the energy field. DK and Tempest head for Drax
and Angel, they take them both outside, allowing Drax's plant fiber skeleton
to heal himself. They then head back and in and get Venom who has
finished her modifications on the eufiber. They then pick up many
of the meteors before the black creatures try and stop them, they all are
eventually knocked off of the jeep leaving only Angel and DK. DK
is able to leap and grab the meteor freeing them all into the real world.
This leaves only one meteor inside the capital building. Tempest
creates a sandstorm from the outside to deal with the creatures, DK drills
underground into the capital building and gets the last meteor freeing
Latnia from its prison. They find Baron Von Freezemore alive and
only slightly injured, he thanks them before the team heads home to Chicago.
the team heads back to Chicago from saving Latnia they begin to discuss
the events of the battle. They suspect that perhaps Brimstone survived
and possessed Baron Von Freezemore. When the return to Chicago, Tempest
and Angel head out to work on local missions within the city. Venom
gets a message from her research facility indicating they have made a break
through and she heads for South Dakota. On the news the team notices
that Baron Von Freezemore has a press conference and indicates that he
believes the energy phenomenon that attacked and killed many people in
Latnia was actually caused by Nova Corps. The also learn that Freezemore
has the UN re-voting their Nova Corps affiliation with the UN and that
Nova Corps is to stay away from Latnia at all times. Leading the
team to conclude that Freezemore is possessed, Drax has DK head for Mexico
to investigate the tomb that they used to trap Brimstone the first time
while he contacts Sonique to warn her and get more information. When
Angel returns Drax has her go into the Earth and search for the holy grail.
Tempest begins monitoring the computer systems in case more news from Latnia
appears, he learns that Freezemore is putting together his own nova team
to protect Latnia from Nova Corps and other enemies. While Angel
is searching for the grail, she has several visions about a small town
being possessed and a little girl running from her parents trying to get
away. In Mexico DK breaks into the tomb and tries to activate the
crystal to imprison Brimstone, however he shatters it and sees the black
energy released from crystal and sucked away into the sky. DK also
sees a face in the black energy smile at him as it disappears. Drax
talks to Sonique and has Tempest send their data on the meteors to scan
for more of them in an attempt to imprison Brimstone. Meanwhile Charlie
calls a team meeting for the next morning and indicates that they are concerned
about their standing with the UN. Sonique contacts Drax and says
they found a faint signature at the capital building in Latnia. Angel
finds the grail, Drax and Tempest head down to Mexico hoping that DK is
able to fix the crystal and place it on the alter at dawn to imprison Brimstone.
DK is able to fix the crystal, but not the pieces of meteor that were in
it. Angel appears with the grail and DK begins to fix it from being
phased into rock. Drax and Tempest arrive, when dawn comes they place
the crystal on the alter, but nothing happens. The team tries to
use the holy grail as well, but with no luck, They then head to the
jet and fly off at hyper-speeds to make it back in time for their meeting
with Charlie with both the crystal and the holy grail. When they
get back Charlie tells them that things do not look good with the UN, and
that the city of Chicago has signed a permanent contract with Nova Corps.
He also tells them that there is something going on in Dayton, Oklahoma
and that a little girl came by and told him that her parents tried to abduct
her and that the town seemed possessed. He also tells them that the
girl is in Mercy Hospital in Chicago. Angel goes to see the girl
and read her memories, Angel finds that Charlie was right and that the
girl ran from her parents when they tried to take her. Drax not wanting
to ignore the problem with Brimstone divides the team. Before they
leave DK is contacted by Puck and tells him he was attacked at Wilson,
something opened a hole in his wall and sucked things into it. He
tells DK he will return in one week after everything blows over.
Tempest and DK fly off to investigate the incident in Oklahoma while Drax
and Angel take the jet to Latnia to try and use the grail to stop Brimstone
and save Baron Von Freezemore. As Drax and Angel fly over the ocean
they notice the I-Spy program go off back at Nova Corps. Angel immediately
uses her telepathic ghost and goes there to investigate. She finds
three technicians standing in the danger room, suspecting an intruder she
contacts DK to inform him. DK talks to the lead night technician
and they find one of the technicians named Floyd is actually a nova.
Drax is also contacted by Charlene who says that Charlie was sucked out
of his office by a giant hole. Angel has Nexus head over to the building
to make sure everything is OK until they return. They also try to
contact Venom, but are unable to reach her. Drax and Angel land outside
of Latnia, Drax turns invisible and tries to head to the capital building
as Angel phases under the ground to do the same. As Drax head for
the building his mind goes fuzzy and he heads back to the jet and flies
off for Chicago. Angel contacts Drax and asks him if he is there
yet, he says he has a long way to go, Angel then discovers that Drax is
not heading for the capital, but for Chicago. Angel phases into the
capital building only to be hit with white energy that disrupts her phase.
There she sees a group of novas dressed in black uniforms, and one of them
is Celest from N-Vector that supposedly died. They put a power dampening
bracelet on her and escort her to see Baron Von Freezemore. Freezemore
asks the team to leave them alone and talks with Angel. After sometime
of Freezemore making polite conversation, Angel requests they cut the bull
shit and talk seriously. Freezemore agrees as talks to her as Brimstone.
He says that he will not harm her, and that he would be willing to make
a trade, Angel for Freezemore, but only in time when he was ready.
He also tells Angel if Nova Corps interfere with him again he will possess
Tempest and kill him. Before Angel leaves she notices a very large,
ruby ring on Freezemore's finger that is the source of the signature Sonique
detected. Instead of turning her into the UN, he has his team escort
Angel to the border of Latnia and they release her. Angel flies off
to catch up with Drax and the jet, and to find out how things are going
and Tempest head to Oklahoma to investigate the strange visions that Angel
has been seeing as well as find the family of the little girl in the hospital.
When they get there all seems normal. DK immediately changes his
eufiber to match the people around him, however Tempest does not.
They go into the small diner and sit down, shortly there after a young
girl named Wendy heads over and starts flirting with Tempest. DK
leaves Tempest and Wendy to head out and look for clues. He goes
to the General Store and starts asking for work, he learns that the only
jobs in town are down in the quarry. DK heads back to the diner only
to find Wendy has cornered Tempest in the booth and the she has recognized
him as being from Nova Corps. DK and Tempest ask Wendy to help them,
Wendy takes them to the house of the little girl where they learn her parents
have been very concerned and were not responsible for beating her.
DK and Tempest want to head to the quarry so Wendy steals her boyfriend's
truck and takes them to the quarry just as the workers leave the quarry
for lunch at the diner. DK and Tempest send Wendy home before they
head down to the quarry. Tempest creates a fog for the two of them
to slip in unnoticed. Once there they notice two tunnels dug into
the side of the quarry, they head down one before waves of light hit them,
DK notices Tempest goes funny and leaves the quarry, DK follows him as
Tempest heads back to the diner and sits down with the other workers and
starts talking and interacting with them as if he had been there his whole
life. DK is able to pull Tempest aside as the miners head back to
the quarry and use his powers to disrupt the mind control on Tempest.
Soon Tempest begins to come around and remembers nothing of what happened.
They then wait for that night to see what will happen to the townspeople,
DK hides near the quarry while Tempest heads into the air to watch.
As midnight rolls around the waves of light encompass the town and the
people begin to head towards the quarry, including Tempest. DK tries
to sneak down as they people begin to work, but then notices Dr. Mindbender
and another nova float out on a platform surrounded by a force field.
Dr. Mindbender motions for Tempest to come to him, as Tempest flies up
onto the platform, DK tries to blast it to free Tempest but is unable to
penetrate the forcefield. Soon Tempest motions towards DK as the
winds pick him up and fling him into the night sky. DK lands a few
miles outside of town and contacts Drax and Angel for back up. Soon
the jet catches up to DK and picks him up, Drax and Angel tell him they
didn't have any luck in Latnia. DK tells them what has been happening
with the town of Dayton, Oklahoma. The team lands the plane out of
sight from the quarry, Drax stays behind as he knows he cannot stand up
to Dr. Mindbender's mental powers. Angel and DK phase into the ground
and head towards the quarry. After sometime Drax notices Tempest
get onto the plane and try and blast him. Drax leaves the plane while
Tempest shoots lightning through the systems frying the plane. Drax
knocks Tempest out a couple of times, but Tempest stays awake because of
his plant fibers. Tempest finds his way back to the quarry as Drax
takes cover from the incoming storm. Angel leaves DK out in the quarry
as she heads down a tunnel, after sometime she notices two guards that
seem to follow her even though she is underground. She also sees
a chamber filled with these guards all along the wall. Meanwhile
in the quarry, DK comes across Tempest returning and is able to use his
powers to bring Tempest to again. He then escorts the mixed up kid
back to the jet and meets up with Drax. DK then heads back to the
quarry to help Angel with the investigation. There Angel phases DK
and the two of them find that they are actually building several thousand
knights. In an attempt to destroy the knights DK and Angel come up
from the ground so DK can blast the roof, there they encounter a technician
that tries to pull a gun on him. DK notices that his powers do not
hurt him, neither do the rocks falling from the ceiling. Angel phases
DK and they leave as the knights begin to wake up and adapt to them.
Meanwhile back at the jet, Drax senses impending danger as several knights
and a few novas head towards them. Drax teleports out there and begins
to take care of them as Tempest summons a tornado to fight them off.
As the skies darken Drax teleports back to Tempest as most of the knights
and novas are blown away. One nova makes it through the weather and
heads to them, as he does he separates into seven novas and begins to fire
on Drax and Tempest. Drax goes to them and begins to take them out,
but not before one of them manages to hit Tempest. Drax keeps one
of them and ties him up, however when Drax checks Tempest he finds Tempest
is almost dead. Quickly he contacts Angel and DK to return.
DK is able to heal Tempest in time so his plant fibers can heal him the
rest of the way. Suddenly DK makes a realization and tells Angel
they have to head back for the technician. They do so, and when DK
encounters him, he grabs him and transfers Cthulu to him and leaves the
two of them to get acquainted. Soon the team is contacted by Dr.
Mindbender to surrender or he will have the entire town kill themselves.
They also notice that Knight is standing next to Mindbender on the platform
with the other nova. Drax and Tempest leave the jet to fly to the
quarry as DK disrupts the nova causing the platform to fall. Knight
grabs Mindbender and hangs in the air, then Knight activates his knights
as they fly off except for a few of them that engage Nova Corps.
The team is able to subdue the few knights that fight them, however most
of them get away during the battle. As the team flies home, Tempest
falls asleep immediately, as the rest of the team question their nova captive.
They find he was manipulated by Mindbender and did not know what was going
on. As they fly home he begins to dissolve and disappear as he was
only a clone, and not the real nova, who is now dead, the rest of the flight
is spent in silence. When they return the encounter Floyd who they
discover has the ability to suppress quantum signatures, making novas into
baselines. Not sure what to do with Floyd, they keep him around to
figure things out later.
