Begins with Sgt Sledge waking up and finding himself in an alley in the Fens section of Freedom City. He doesn’t remember who he is or how he got there. As he tries to recover his memories, he sees Mama Bones walking by the alley, pushing her grocery cart. He then sees her get jumped by a thug who is trying to rob her for something. He intervenes and helps Mama by tossing the thug around like a rag-doll. She tells him some very unusual stuff about how special he is and how important he is and then wanders off. Just as Sgt Sledge begins to sort that out, everything becomes hazy and then goes to black.
Prince Lightstar wanders through Wharton State Forest looking for his space ship that crashed in the forest after escaping from Planet Serenity. He finds the ship and begins to send out a signal to reach the rebellion group back on his home planet. Finally contacting General Kalaris, they speak for a time about how desperate times are on Serenity fighting against Star Khan’s forces. Lightstar promises to come with aid, and mentions that he has found powerful heroes that he hopes will come. After the discussion, as with Sgt Sledge, everything becomes hazy and everything goes to black for him.
Eagle 1 and Boulder 12 are going to a double date with two girls Art met at a party: Malorie and Jessica. They are going to eat at Champion’s, a super-hero motif restaurant that occasionally has heroes stop by. When they pull up to the restaurant and begin to enter, both black out as the others.
An intense battle ensues across the city between the heroes and Shadow Reaver, finally culminating in the destruction of the armored villain in a collaborative offensive attack by the heroes.
After the battle, they find that the person Shadow Reaver was attempting to kidnap greatly resembled their own dimension’s The Centurion. They did not get to talk with him for longer than a minute before the heroes again all see everything go to black.
