and Angel continue to help out the city of Chicago while Venom and Tempest
work to put together Charlie's body in hopes that they can return
his new nova energy to his body. Meanwhile Bastat is returned to
Chicago by the Helgen after being rescued from her disappearance.
She finds Drax and returns to Nova Corps where she decides to stay with
them and help them out. Soon the I-Spy program indicates a
quantum signature by the danger room, when the team arrives they find that
there are two knights trying to take Charlie's program out of the
danger room. Drax is able to defeat them before they can adapt.
The team decides to head out and look for more incoming knights, Drax
stays behind to guard the danger room. Soon Angel find two guards
unconscious outside the hanger. She contacts Drax who heads down
the tube, but senses danger and turns invisible. When he reaches
the hanger it is filled with some sort of gas that makes him lightheaded.
Before he passes out he teleports outside, but remains invisible.
Angel not having heard from Drax heads to the hanger to check it out.
When she finds it filled with gas she opens the door as the cloud of gas
heads out and begins to knock the people of the airport unconscious.
When Drax comes to eight hours later, he finds the hanger open and the
danger room had been hacked. He contacts Angel and they find
that there Charlie has been taken and a metal panel had been broken into
using some sort of acid. When Bastat comes down to the danger room
she finds that it smells like Venom, even though Venom is in South Dakota.
The team quickly realizes that it was in fact Gaia that had broken into
the building and taken Charlie. Drax follows as Bastat tracks down
Gaia's scent across the airport. Eventually they find that she was picked
up by Nocturn and taken away. They are able track a plane that is
heading over Missouri, they head to intercept it and find a ship with Nazi
symbols on it. Soon Drax mysteriously flies the jet into the ground,
but is only able to save Drax. When it impacts they find that Bastat
almost returns from the dead and rejoins the team, however Drax remains
almost a zombie. Angel and Bastat phase into the jet and are able
to take back the box that contains Charlie. Once they get it, several
knights are released from the jet to pursue and recapture the box.
A missile is also released from the jet, but it emits a flash of light
before Angel can destroy it. Soon Angel is contacted by Drax, not
trusting anyone she contacts Venom and Tempest to take the box to them.
Tempest flies out to create a storm from to slow down the knights while
Angel takes the box containing Charlie to Venom in the Wilson facility.
Tempest is unable however to stop the knights before they adapt, but the
Nazi jet does turn around before being ripped apart by the storm.
Drax follows the jet and finds that the knights knock out and seriously
hurt Tempest, causing Drax to go into rage, releasing him from Dr. Mindbender's
control. Drax, Bastat, and Angel work to take out the knights before
they can adapt. Angel is able to take the weapons out of Tempest
and Drax allowing them to regenerate. The team then heads down to
the lab to try and release Charlie, but when they do his energy quickly
returns to his body and Charlie wakes up remembering nothing. The
team does not tell Charlie he is a nova because they do not want him to
over react since his new body is still very fragile.
awakens in the morning not to find himself in his room at Nova Corps, but
he is lying in bed next to his wife Morgan. He quickly realizes that
he also has none of his powers. Morgan wakes up and greets him as
she heads downstairs to make breakfast. She reminds him that this
is his week off and that she would like to spend some time with her husband,
she then tells him to go and wake up Jonathan. A little unsure of
what is going on Drax recognizes his old house in Washington, DC.
He makes his way to Jonathan's room where there is a little five year old
boy waiting for him. He takes him downstairs to breakfast, where
Morgan reminds him that he needs to go to parent / teacher conference and
leave Jonathan with the baby sitter. That morning Duncan takes his
son to the park where he meets another couple, Charlie and Sally Rogers
who are there with their daughter Cindy. They have lunch together
and Duncan is late getting back to the house where he finds Jonathan's
baby sitter, Charlene waiting for them. He then heads off to the
school and meets Morgan and they have a conference with Jonathan's kindergarten
teacher, Cassandra Dennings. As he is talking to Ms. Dennings, he
is suddenly shocked to find himself still talking to her, but she is now
her nova self Angel, and they are in front of the mission board at Nova
Corps. Drax then meets with the team where the discuss the issue
that knights have been sighted in Chicago stealing hardware. They
decide to head off to investigate when all of a sudden Drax finds himself
talking to Ms. Dennings again about Jonathan fighting with a young boy
at school named Damien Killian. Soon he heads to the doctors office
as Dr. Alexis Montgomery gives him his examination before heading on vacation
from the CIA. She tells him he has a rare disease that he needs to
be treated for that could cause him to have hallucinations. He then
heads home just as Charlene is leaving. That night Morgan comes home
and they have a family dinner and get Jonathan ready to leave with his
friend Curt Trekle, whose Dad is also Ivan Trekle, who Drax knows as Grykus.
Also that night Duncan sees a white hole open in space as tentacles try
to reach out and grab him, but he is able to get away. The next morning
Jonathan leaves with his friends and Duncan finds that everyone here is
baseline and there are no novas. Morgan and Duncan head off for a
weekend in New England while Jonathan is away. Soon however, he finds
himself as Drax back at Nova Corps where he takes a mission to break up
a bank heist. There he finds two knights and begins to fight them,
as he does he finds himself in a jewelry store in New England having just
swung at the clerk Morgan now upset, leaves the store as Duncan rushes
to apologize to her. They have a wonderful dinner, and head to the
beach. The next morning the tentacles again reach for Duncan and
he avoids them. Soon after he returns to the Nova Corps team where
they are disappointed in him for risking their lives and they are concerned
about this reality switching as Venom can find nothing wrong with him,
nor Angel. They continue to work on the problem with the knights
in Chicago until Drax switches again, and he is home with Morgan as Jonathan
comes back from fishing. The next day he goes to another doctor who
confirms what Dr. Montgomery had told him about the rare virus causing
hallucinations and that he needs help. That day in school Jonathan
gets in trouble for defending others against Damien using some techniques
his Uncle Ivan had taught him. Duncan talks with the boy before they
all head out to dinner. At dinner Duncan switches back to a battle
between the knights and Nova Corps. He watches as his team falls
without him able to help. Then Dred appears and tells him he should
have rejoined the Helgen, but instead his pride has cost him the lives
of his teammates. Soon he appears back in the restaurant as Duncan,
again the white tendrils come at him faster and more numerous before, and
he suddenly wakes up, at Nova Corps on one of Venom's medical tables with
Angel and Zeroth above him. Zeroth explains that he was mindscaped
by Dred and in a coma for two days, while the strained their powers to
bring him back. Zeroth also explains the normal life that he saw
was his minds way of fighting Dred telepathy and that the tendrils were
him and Angel reaching out to him, but their appearance was distorted by
Dred's telepathy. Zeroth and Angel rest after working for two days
to bring back Drax, and even with Dred distorting his mind to bring him
to the Helgen, Drax got the mixed blessing of having his family back if
only for a moment.
goes and talks with Tony Aramond on Ibiza and finds out knights are abducting
novas and that Tony wants Nova Corps to solve it quickly and quietly.
Drax is also contacted by the Lady of the Lake who tells him to protect
Angel's children and also gives him an unknown gift. Meanwhile back
at Nova Corps, Angel confronts Tempest about his mood and finds he is upset
about DK and Cindy has broken up with him again. She also discovers
that TEOTWAWKI announces it is moving its Chicago office to Florida.
The team is then contacted by Sheriff Albright, from Pofolk, New Mexico.
Angel and Bastat head out to investigate where they find that knights have
come and cleaned out Corn's lab, taking with them unknown Corn technology.
They encounter corn bots when Angel is shot, Bastat brings her back where
Venom finds that Angel is going to have twins. Angel is then telepathically
linked with Dred who offers her sanctuary for her and her babies despite
Drax's position with the Helgen. Angel refuses Dred's offer and chooses
to stay with her team. Douglas Owen then announces he is making Venom
a full time scientist and is dissolving the Nova Corps corporation and
taking over. Angel finds that his mind has been altered and there
is no more Puck, only a very crude Owen. Before he leaves the team
abducts him from the airport and takes him to Soni while they head to Ibiza.
At the airport Knight himself, talks with Venom and Bastat and informs
them that a rogue knight called The One that has become sentient and is
on Ibiza. He tells them they are not to destroy it as it would cause
a massive explosion. The team talks Charlie into going in order to
keep him safe, and maybe even use his help against the knights. As
the team heads to Ibiza, they leave Owen with Zeroth at Soni and continue
on their way. On the plane Drax talks to Tempest about what is bothering
him, and finds that Tempest also has lived the memories of the alternate
life with him and Morgan. Realizing this was the gift the Lady of
the Lake gave to him, he comforts his son. When they arrive on Ibiza
they are greeted by a limo that takes them immediately to the Quantum Casino.
Once the arrive they are greeted by personal assistants, very gorgeous
baselines who are there to meet their every need or desire. Bastat
immediately take her cabana boy and disappears to her room. After
sometime Drax and Bastat head out at night to check out Ibiza and to find
some clues. Meanwhile Angel decides to patrol by air while Venom
watches over Charlie and Tempest stays stuck in his room by his assistant.
Eventually Tempest is able to break free and goes with Venom to help protect
Charlie. Eventually Bastat and Drax ran into Fabin, who was there
tracking for one of Corn's devices. They used Fabin to lead them
to some knights who were attacking a young nova girl. When the fought
the knights they found tendrils going out of them into the girl.
Drax and Bastat quickly took care of the knights and broke then tendrils
which covered them with black ooze. Soon the rest of the team arrived
where Venom analyzed the black ooze and found it to be a powerful acid.
Drax had Tempest create a rain storm to wash it off of them but not before
Bastat and he lost their eufiber. Venom found that the girl had lost
most of her internal organs and was not going to survive long, Venom then
took a sample back to examine it. Venom discovered that the acid
broke the body down to a basic quantum liquid. The next morning everyone
headed out to enjoy a day on Ibiza with their personal assistants.
Tempest however was tricked by his assistant and got really drunk.
Zeroth contacts Angel and says that he was able to break the mindscape
of Douglas Owen, but not knowing who it really was, freed Puck leaving
him with no memories. He then disappeared and left to wander the
world. At breakfast a knight disguised as a young girl working as
Charlie's personal assistant attempted to capture Charlie. Drax was
able to stop her and she was overloaded by Charlie. The team now
knowing the knights are capable of looking like people, watch Charlie with
more care. That night they head back out and run into Fabin and Professor
Corn. They make a deal with Corn that he can lead them to The One
if they return a small box that he has in his possession. They agree
and they find the hiding place where 16 knights and the one are located.
Drax, Angel, and Charlie head into the lair while the rest of the team
stays outside to fight the knights. The team notices as they fight
them, none of these knights are adapting. Inside, Drax finds The
One knight shrouded in a white cloak and wired into a pedestal. Drax
rips the pedestal from the ground while Angel fights the other knights
in the lair. After some time Charlie arcs in white energy and leaves
for the matrix of wires that the knights were using. There he begins
to fight them on his own while Angel holds his now, lifeless body.
The One drops from the pedestal and begins fighting Drax. Different
tendrils come from it and reach out to Drax. They eventually touch
him and to his surprise Drax remains unharmed. Soon after The One
teleports and turns silver, exhibiting Drax's own powers. It
goes after Angel and Drax grabs on to it. In a display of pure power,
Drax channels and enormous amount of quantum and rips the arms from The
One. The One then teleports away, leaving the team to clean up the
lair and the rest of the knights. After doing so they take some vacation
time and stay at the Quantum Casino on Ibiza.
team reunites on Ibiza after working separately on their own problems.
Charlie is happy to announce that Owen has returned and put everything
back to the way it should be, and that they may all return home to Chicago.
Drax introduces DK7 to the team, however before they leave they find that
both Santo and Bastat are missing. Eventually they find Bastat passed
out in an alley with no memory of how she came to be there. The team
is then able to find Santo and head to the jet to leave, there Tempest
and DK7 say good-bye as she remains there to disappear from the sight of
Proteus. When they arrive back at Chicago everyone heads off to continue
their work, while Angel and Drax take Bastat and Santo to the danger room
to run them through the Mr. Man program. Soon the team is back doing
assignments in Chicago. Drax and Santo head out to stop a high speed
car chase that Santo brings to an abrupt end using a force field to stop
the car. Meanwhile Venom and Bastat head to the park to stop a gunman
holding two runners captive, they are able to sneak up on the gunman but
Bastat's instincts take over and before they realize it she has shredded
the gunman into a puddle. Venom quickly covers it by growing plants
while the now shocked and terrified hostages are returned to the authorities.
Drax and Santo arrive on the scene where Santo discovers that the man's
gun is actually a lightning gun and that he keeps for himself. Elsewhere
Tempest is able to stop a fiery blaze within a building, and Angel attempts
to contact Nexus and explain why it has been months since she talked to
him. Eventually the team is given and assignment to break up a drug
deal going down that night that has known novas involved. That night
the team breaks into two groups, Drax, Angel, and Tempest head to the top
of the building while Venom, Santo, and Bastat sneak into the bottom of
the building. Santo quickly sense quantum and they discover that
they dealers are making Soma, a drug created by taking hormones directly
from a novas node, leaving them dead. Venom unable to save the young
nova from the process, they prepare to leave when they are stopped by guards.
Santo creates a force field from the bullets and tries to reason with the
guards, meanwhile Venom summons roaches and bats to take care of the guards
and sends them fleeing out of the building. Santo is then able to
sense another quantum signature and they find yet another nova that is
being drained from her node. Venom is able to save her but only if
they get the nova girl back to Nova Corps. Santo creates a portal
and sends Venom and the patient back to her lab to begin surgery.
Bastat and Santo then head out of the building. Meanwhile on the
top floor Drax overhears the conversation between the two dealers, and
attempts to take one of them out, but the guy that he hits seems to absorb
the energy from his attack into his body. Quickly the guy assumes
it is his business partner as Drax is invisible and blasts a hole right
through the middle of him. Soon a fight breaks out and Drax begins
knocking out several of the gunman in the room. Eventually Tempest
flies into help and the nova dealer also blasts him sending Tempest falling
to the ground. Drax goes into rage and takes out several more men
before heading to the ground to save Tempest. There Tempest recovers
while the enraged Drax stands there guarding him. Meanwhile back
at the top floor the now very charged nova dealer encounters Angel who
uses her mental powers to attack his mind, causing a brain hemorrhage and
killing the nova dealer. Soon the police arrive and are able to round
up the rest of the thugs while the team returns home to Nova Corps.
day starts out with Santo stealing a donut from Charlene that escalates
into a major confrontation and battle. The team then receives a mission
to go to northern Canada near Alaska and retrieve a technological device
that was being transported by Hoffman Industries. Drax has Tempest do some
research on Hoffman Industries and they discover that Hoffman Industries
makes office furniture. Soon they all get on the jet and fly to the coordinates
they are given where the plane transporting the device went down. Soon
the jet's systems are disrupted by some sort of force, along with all other
electrical devices. Soon the team sees a nova flying across the sky leaving
behind her a trail of the northern lights. Drax tries to get close to her
while Angel puts an illusion on the jet. However the nova seems to sense
the jet and finds it, in order to keep the team's secret Angel mentally
attacks the nova, causing her to explode in a bright flash of the northern
lights. After several hours the team woke up and noticed that only
Angel, Venom, and Tempest were still present. Quickly they began
to search for their teammates, but had no success. Angel was not
able to sense any of their minds telepathically. Soon Venom caught
the scent and tracks of a giant cat-like creature. Realizing that
Bastat had once again mutated they began to track her down as it was their
only lead. After quite sometime Venom led the team to a place where
there had been some sort of battle. There Venom caught her own scent
and they realized that Gaia had picked up Bastat in her mutated condition
some time ago. The team then returned to Chicago in an attempt to
try and find their other missing teammates. With no luck, Angel then
decided that if she could not find Bastat, perhaps she could find Gaia.
She then telepathically searched for Venom's mind and also found Gaia's.
Tempest, Venom, and Angel then headed for a small town in Idaho where Angel
had sensed Gaia's mind. There in an abandoned church the found a
group of knights protecting a doorway. Tempest using himself as a
decoy lured the knights away while Angel and Venom were able to make it
into the lab. However their first attempt was unsuccessful as it
ended in a stale mate and Tempest was severely hurt and captured by the
knights. However when Angel and Venom regrouped they came up with
a plan in which Venom got close to all the knights, then Angel phased her
and they headed to the lab. There they found not only Bastat and
Tempest, but also Jareth as well. Gaia quickly used Tempest as a
hostage and told them to get back, but when they engaged her she infected
him with a virus that caused his plant fibers to grow uncontrolled.
Venom then found Gaia as Angel grabbed her unconscious team members and
took them to safety. When she returned she phased out Gaia's heart,
but Gaia was able to survive and escape, but not without looking at Angel
in awe and mentioning something about finding the energy matrix.
They then returned to Chicago where Venom was just barely able to save
Tempest. She also began to treat Bastat again, as well as working
on Jareth, the Goblin King.
returns from being on Ibiza and finds that his package from Tony has arrived.
He talks with Angel and discovers that Santo is missing, Tempest is recovering,
and Bastat is still a mutant cat creature. He also learns that Angel
was able to recover Jareth from Gaia and that he is also recovering.
Soon the team is dispatched because of group of young novas are blasting
Chicago. Venom stays with her patients as Drax and Angel head out
to deal with the young menace. When they get there Drax subdues three
of them and Angel mentally blasts one of them, however it is as if the
young nova had just awoken from a dream. Meanwhile back and Nova
Corps Venom stays in the lab as she hears loud explosions and the lights
flicker. She also discovers she is unable to contact Drax and Angel.
Soon the noises stop and Drax and Angel return from dealing with the young
menace only to find that Charlie's office is trashed and he is missing.
Tempest finally crawls out of bed and reports back to duty. Soon
they find that the lobby has been hit with a gas and that there are knights
disguised as people down there. Tempest and Angel quickly head there
as Tempest tries to air out the lobby most of the knights converge on Angel
as two of them stay behind for Tempest. Angel flees and tries to
escape them, but Drax quickly takes his new weapon and sets it up on a
dock by Lake Michigan. Angel leads the knights there and Drax blows
them all out of the sky with his new weapon. Meanwhile back at Nova
Corps Venom is greeted by Gaia, Nocturn, and Mindbender who try and abduct
her, but she is able to avoid them as Jareth awakens and protects her.
He takes Venom and meets with the rest of the team by Lake Michigan.
Soon Drax heads back for Tempest as quickly as he can only to find an empty
building. Drax does find a glowing pedestal with two knights guarding
it. He quickly takes out the knights but a transparent head emerges
from the pedestal and identifies itself as Knight. He offers Drax
a trade, Tempest for Angel, however he also guarantees no harm will come
to Angel. The team quickly contacts Grykus and sets up a portal to
keep the team from harm. Drax meets in the park per Knights orders
and in an instant Nocturn is there holding Tempest and Tim, the jackal
surrounded by knights. Drax tries to negotiate with Nocturn and learns
that Knight is there as well. He asks Knight if he could have Nocturn
as part of the trade and Knight agrees. Angel steps in front of the
portal and scans Tempest's mind in which he tells her four things.
He tells her that he has Charlie in his communicator, and that he is wired
with C4 to kill Drax. Tempest also telepathically tells Angel that
he knows what they have planned and he cannot allow her to be taken, and
he asks Angel to tell his Dad that he loves him. Suddenly Tempest
summons a lightning bolt from the sky onto himself, causing an explosion
killing him, Nocturn, Tim, and several knights. Drax in shock begins
to search frantically for Tempest as Angel flies forth from the portal.
Venom and Grykus stand by watching in amazement. Soon Drax pulls
himself together and begins to fight off the many knights now going after
Angel, but there are too many and eventually they take Angel. When
Angel awakens she is on a table and Knight tells her that he is dying and
that he needs the energy matrix from her babies to resurrect himself.
Knight offers to Angel the choice of which child as the procedure need
only take one of her children's lives. Angel tells him to choose
as she cannot make that decision, but to leave her one of them. Knight
then begins the procedure as Angel is desperation pushes the communicator
Dred gave her. She falls unconscious and when she wakes up she is
on the Avalon with Dred. Dred tells her that she is not a prisoner
and Angel contacts Drax who is still at Nova Corps with Venom trying to
find her. Angel tells Drax what happened and that she is with Dred
and feels safe with him and wants to stay. Angel requests of Dred
to see Venom and he does arrange it and brings Venom to the Avalon.
There Venom examines Angel and finds that the daughter could die as most
of her energy has been extracted, but Angel's son will be OK, and that
only time will tell. Venom then returns to Nova Corps where Drax
decides that she should take her patients and go to South Dakota while
he stays in Chicago and tries to figure things out for both himself and
Venom reaches South Dakota, she realizes she must go back and help put
Nova Corps back together. Bastat comes to and goes back with Venom,
however Charlie's stays behind at Wilson to be re-introduced into his body.
As they fly back Venom tells Bastat all that has happened. Meanwhile
back at Nova Corps Drax attempts to help out with normal missions in Chicago,
but his frustrations shows as the casualties of the crime scenes begin
to climb. Soon Santo returns to Nova Corps, and Drax fills him in
some when Venom returns as well. Venom talks to Drax about needing
to pull things together as a team. Soon they find that the park has
been destroyed when they get there they find a partial body on the ground.
Soon they find that it was DK7 that had destroyed the park and that she
is being controlled by Cthulu. Soon they fight Cthulu and free DK7
where she tells Drax that she was trying to revive Tempest. Shortly
there after she leaves and is not heard from again. Drax then says
there is something he has to do and has Santo warp him to the cabin in
Canada where he buries the remains of Jonathan next to Morgan's grave.
While he is there Drax also asks Dred to speak with him, Dred appears with
Lotus and Zantique. There Dred answers Drax's questions and informs
him that he is keeping Angel safe from harm, and that when the time comes
Drax will get his chance at Knight. Meanwhile the rest of the team
hears of an attack Nebraska of a lake being completely evaporated along
with a few fishermen. Venom leads the team while Drax returns, there
they find the remains of a knight base along with several of the knight
bodies and parts. The radiation still seems high but is going away
at an accelerated rate. Meanwhile Angel informs Drax telepathically
that Dred has attacked Knight and destroyed one of his labs. Suddenly
Angel falls very ill and by Dred's request Venom, Bastat, and Santo are
brought on board the Avalon. Venom looks at Angel and finds that
the quantum signatures her babies have stabilized, leaving her daughter
a baseline, with no chance for eruption, he son however will still grow
to be a nova. Drax returns to Nova Corps and informs the team of
what Angel had said as Venom tells Drax what they found. Meanwhile
a small mountain village is attacked in a similar fashion, killing sixty
people. Angel again informs Drax of the Helgen's success. Drax
then hears from Sonique who tells him that she is tracking the Avalon heading
towards Africa. Drax tells Sonique of his plans to trade himself
to Dred for Angel, and that after talking to her there is still a reason
for him to go on. Soon Nova Corps is called in by Team Tomorrow to
aid them in attacking the Avalon over Africa. Before they leave Drax
is contacted by Knight who offers him a deal, he will restore Tempest exactly
as he was, with no catches as long as Drax takes his team and walks away
from the battle. Drax agrees reluctantly, and Knight promises to
deliver Tempest to him. When the team arrives in Africa they find
20,000 baseline villagers are already dead, amongst several knights.
The first wave of Team Tomorrow members have forgotten their mission and
are cleaning the wreckage when the others arrive. Drax and the rest
of the team head towards Ibiza and rest there before returning to Chicago.
the Avalon the medical team removes Electrode from the device after destroying
the village in Africa and escaping Team Tomorrow. Dred leaves on
business while Angel explores the ship. She overhears a conversation
and realizes that Tony Aramond has been working with Lord Dred and the
Helgen. As she continues to explore she comes across Lord Dred's
journal from his meetings with the Lady of the Lake. In it she learns
that Dred has known of a great many things far in advance to them actually
happening. She also realizes that Dred knew this war against Knight
was coming, and that Drax would be the one to stop him. She also
reads in the journal that it talks about Drax's eruption and how it would
happen, and that his legacy would lead nova kind to a golden age free from
the rule of man. Meanwhile on Ibiza, Drax meets with Tony and acquires
some new ammunition for his gun. When they go to return to Chicago
they find that Bastat has run off with her cabana boy and that Santo has
returned to Cuba. Drax and Venom then return to Chicago alone where
they are surprised to find Douglas Owen waiting for them there. They
discuss the situation with the team and Owen offers to help as Puck so
that they may continue to work on missions and not lose business.
He also puts the rest of the team on suspension and sends a fruit basket
to Drax for the loss of his son Tempest. Venom heads off to the coast
of Florida and stops a nova from trying to steal uranium rods from a sub
they had crashed. Meanwhile Drax goes to northern California and
tries to recover an energy mapping device for the UTI research facility.
He finds that the facility was broken into and the object was stolen by
corn bots. Drax realizes that this device is similar to the one that
Knight stole from Corn. He gets it back for the facility but decides
to keep it himself as the facility lacks the security to keep it from getting
stolen again, UTI agrees reluctantly. Back on the Avalon Dred returns
in time for Knight to launch a counter attack. The knights are able
to get past their defenses and infect the Avalon with their virus programming.
The ship begins to explode in the battle and a piece of metal is lodged
into Dred's skull. Zantique, Lotus, and Angel are able to escape
with Dred and get him to Chicago where Venom is able to remove the piece
of metal and Ivory heals him. Angel and Drax talk briefly before
Zantique moves Dred to a secret location, Angel leaves with them.
Angel then returns with Lotus and Zantique and meet with Drax in which
the teams make an uneasy alliance. Lotus stays with Angel to represent
the Helgen and to protect Angel as a request from Lord Dred. To make
things easier she turns herself into Santo to participate on the team.
Owen then leaves as the team has finally come together again. Soon
Angel has a vision of Tempest heading to the cabin. The team instantly
leaves for the cabin where they find the area covered in a deadly storm.
They get into the cabin where they find Tempest covered in a blanket and
huddled in a corner. They talk to him only to find that he is not
really Tempest, just a clone of him. Tempest questions himself and
does not expect to be welcomed back to the team as he is not really himself.
Drax and Angel talk to him and make him realize they do not care and that
as far as they are concerned, he is Tempest. As they leave Drax finds
a note from Knight reminding him that he has fulfilled his end of the bargain.
They take Tempest back to Nova Corps where Venom examines him and finds
that she cannot even tell he is a clone, nor can Angel find anything wrong
with his mind, only the fear of not fitting in. Drax spends sometime
with him and before not too long Tempest is pretty much back to his old
and Tempest spend some much deserved time together on missions and just
relaxing as the team gets back to their old selves. With the team
finally back together again, Drax takes them all out to eat at the Russian
Tea Room, including Lotus who is still posing as Santo. They also
invite Charlie Rogers and his mother along to join them. However
when the team finishes their meal Drax is stopped in the alley and met
by Dr. Mindbender who offers him a truce. Mindbender explains that
he is afraid of Knight and wants Drax to stop him on one condition, that
he allow Mindbender to go free and unharmed. Drax agrees and Mindbender
gives him the location and plans to Knight's base where he is preparing
to merge himself with The One knight. Drax immediately calls a team
meeting back at Nova Corps and also invites Charlie. They discuss
their plans to get into the base and stop Knight. They decide to
tell Charlie that he is a nova and try and train him quickly as they will
need his powers to disable to the knights. Lotus coordinates with
Zantique that the Helgen will be standing by once the team gets the shields
down and will help draw some of the knights away so they can stop Knight.
Angel also receives an anonymous gift of several devices that were recovered
from the Avalon by the Directive. The team is able to sneak through
the entrance when the guards change and get into Knight's base. Tempest
and Charlie head to the control room to link Charlie up to the knights
to disable them. They fight through many Knights and when they get
there Tempest links Charlie to the knights network and uploads him.
Charlie then tries to disable the knight network while Tempest holds the
room and keeps the knights out. Meanwhile Angel, Venom, and Lotus
posing as Santo head to the generator to shut down the energy shielding
to let in the Helgen teams to fight the knights. As the rest of the
team works to disable the knights and the base, Drax takes his gun and
heads to the bowels of the base looking for Knight. There he finds
Mindbender leaving and lets him go as part of the deal. Soon Drax
finds the room where Knight is and discovers that he is there and there
is a ring of light that makes him real. Drax and Knight quickly realize
the other is there and come to a stand still. Knight finally convinces
Drax to leave or he will release 3000 knights on him, enough to kill him.
Drax agrees and leaves the room, soon he goes back in as Knight has already
begun the transfer, Drax uses his gun and starts shooting the machines.
The room explodes in a brilliant flash of light as Drax gets away.
Meanwhile after fighting several knights Angel, Venom, and Lotus have destroyed
the generator. Soon Gaia appears with several knights and challenges
Venom to a duel. As they begin to fight they do little to no damage
to each other, becoming frustrated Angel blasts Gaia several times with
her choir bolt until Venom delivers the last punch dropping her to the
floor. They quickly reduce her remains to ash and Lotus opens a portal
and sends them into the depths of space. Elsewhere as the base begins
to explode and fall apart Tempest is able to recovery Charlie and bring
him back to his body, however neither one of them knows the extent of which
Charlie was able to stop the knights. Lotus gets them all out before
the base explodes, the team then stands there in the Outback of Australia
and watch as the Helgen finish off the few knights that attempt to leave
Lotus continues to blend into the team, both Bastat and Santo return from
their trips leaving her to hide so that no one will know she is there.
Angel talks to Lotus and she decides to return to the Helgen providing
Angel contact her if needed. Drax talks with Charlie and Bastat and
Santo are re-instated into the team and begin working on missions as if
they had never left. The team is then given a mission where they
head to a desert town in Arizona to investigate the missing townspeople
and authorities that have entered into the town. Tempest, Angel,
and Drax fly overhead to scout out the town while Venom summons scorpions
for any thing they may encounter in the town. Bastat rides in a jeep
with Santo that was loaned to them by the local police. Soon Drax
descends into the town and while Angel looks from above. She tells
Drax that she sees a werewolf like creature near a dead family. Drax
heads to the house and engages the wolf creature but finds that the wolf
does not go very far from the bodies. Meanwhile Bastat senses something
running near the jeep as her and Santo head towards the town. They
stop and get out just as the jeep is attacked. Soon they find themselves
fighting some sort of creature that runs on all fours and is about the
size of a small car. They are able to take the creature down before
Venom arrives on their location. Meanwhile in the town while Drax
is sparring with the wolf, several of the same creatures encountered by
Santo and Bastat emerge from the ground and begin attacking. Drax
is quickly overwhelmed as many of them gang up on him, Angel is able to
head down and pull him out as she takes him back to the barricade.
Soon Santo, Bastat, and Venom are overrun by the creatures as they emerge
from the ground. Santo quickly opens portals for them to escape in
as Tempest picks up the wolf in a twister and takes him back to the barricade.
Venom quickly examines Drax only to find that he is dead and the plant
fiber is not growing to repair his body. Meanwhile Tempest brings
the wolf creature, who has not passed out and become human, to the ambulance
where the begin to treat his wounds. Venom does not give up on Drax
and tries everything she can, but with no success. Angel pulls herself
together and goes to tell Tempest, who then loses control and unleashes
a powerful tornado on the town trying to kill the creatures, but only levels
the town as the creatures escape back underground. Angel is telepathically
able to calm him down in order for the team to return to Chicago to figure
out another plan. Under the grief of their fallen leader, the team
continues to try and figure out a way to stop the creatures. Bastat
gets cleaned up while Venom begins to analyze the blood from the creatures.
She finds that they are infected by some sort of virus. The wolf
man wakes up and Santo greets him and finds that his name is Matthew Ajax
and that his family was killed and he was protecting them in the house.
He offers to help the team stop the creatures and punish the person responsible
for this. Santo also finds that Baron Von Freezemore has come from
Latnia to check in on Angel. Tempest, Angel, and Santo head back
to the remains of the town to look for clues and find one house standing
unharmed from the storm. Angel takes Tempest in where they find a
lab owned by Professor Corn and are able to learn that the creatures were
created by him using Gaia's research. Angel looks under the house
and finds a cavern filled with hundreds of the creatures, soon they are
discovered and the creatures attack, Tempest is able to get the data off
of the computer for Venom to analyze. Santo opens a warp and the
three novas return back to the Nova Corps building in Chicago. When
they arrive they find that Ajax has turned back into a wolf and is chasing
Bastat through the Nova Corps building. Venom is able to tranquilize
him and put him in the danger room until he returns back to a person.
Bastat and Santo decide to continue working some of the missions there
in Chicago while the team continues to solve the creature problem.
Venom and Angel head to the lab to analyze the data recovered from the
lab while Tempest takes a break in his room. As Venom continues to
work in the lab she is startled when Drax awakens and asks her what has
happened. Angel quickly reacts as Venom is shocked, however the stress
is too much for Angel and she goes into labor. They contact Tempest
who arrives and is over joyed to see his father, but is a little overwhelmed
as Angel goes into labor. Venom makes Angel comfortable while she
studies Drax, she finds that the plant fiber skeleton has evolved and that
when he died it put him into some sort of stasis until it could regenerate
him and bring him back. While Angel is giving birth, Dred appears
and says that they need to take her and Venom away as Corn is coming for
his research. They agree and Tempest has Charlie memorize the data
so that they can give the disk back to Corn. Soon Corn arrives and
Drax hands over the disk reluctantly. As soon as that is done Angel
requests that she return to Nova Corps and Dred complies. Venom is
able to then deliver the twins that Angel names Alecia Dennings Freezemore,
and Christopher Dennings Freezemore after Tempest. The team soon
finds that the son has the power to phase himself and objects at a distance.
Angel sees Floyd and has Floyd use his powers to stop Christopher from
doing anymore phasing. Venom is then free to analyze the research
and finds that the infection is a virus that was put there to destroy the
creatures. She also discovers in the research that there is a vitamin
that the creatures need to stop the virus from destroying them. She
is quickly able to create a solution that will stop the vitamin and speed
up the virus to kill the creatures. Venom contacts Mr. Owen to head
to South Dakota to manufacture a lot of the solution to kill the creatures.
As the night progresses Drax is contacted by the technicians about a man
being locked in the danger room. Drax releases Ajax and finds that
he is the wolf man and that he was protecting his dead family. Drax
tells him that Professor Corn was behind the creatures and that the team
would take care of them. Ajax then sets out on his own to hunt down
Professor Corn and exact his revenge upon him. Later that night Angel
is visited by Tempest who asks her a lot of questions about Christopher,
but she does not think anything of it. The next morning Angel is
greeted by Charlene who brings Angel a bracelet for Christopher that will
inhibit his powers. Angel then meets Tempest and finds he has no
memory of talking with her the night before. They scan the security
logs and find an anti-quantum signature that revolved around Tempest.
Angel realizes that can mean only one person, Brimstone, that was interested
in Christopher. Angel leaves the twins in the care of Ivory and rejoins
the team to finish the mission in Arizona. Drax and Venom agree that
they will stock a cargo plane full of meat injected with Venom's solution.
They gather this together as the team then flies to the remains of the
town in Arizona. As they begin to drop meat from the plane the creatures
quickly come to the surface and begin feeding, as they do they start to
explode and fizz with puss as the solution begins working. Angel
takes Tempest down into the cavern below where they find incubators with
embryos in them. Tempest and Angel quickly destroy them while the
creatures feed above. After the town is now filled with infectious
goo, the team decides to pour the gas from the cargo plane over the small
town, Tempest then hits it with a lightning bolt setting in on fire and
destroying the diseased carcasses once and for all. They alert the
local authorities that the town has been destroyed along with the creatures.
The team then heads back to Chicago from some much deserved rest, but when
they get there Angel finds that Charlene has become a great baby sitter
for her children while she was gone.
