Onimarr Synn draws ever closer!
With the hospital in ruins, his followers dead, and the authorities closing in, Neon must flee.
Meanwhile, the ruthless Thanagarian dictator Onimarr Synn sends his most trusted general to Earth in an effort to learn the location of the Nth Metal isotope. Drawing off the trace amounts of radiation laced within the dead Quench's weapon, Phade is able to get a reading on the isotope's location. This results in Synn ordering that she be sent a hunting party of savage Manhawks to aid in her quest.
Neon and Firebrand attempt to take shelter within the man's former home, however they are soon beset upon by General Thade and her minions. In a desperate attempt to escape, Firebrand engages these new foes, tapping into the Conflict Engine once again.
Shocked by her brutality, Neon stops her before she become too far gone. Snapping out of her rage, Firebrand is shocked to discover the price of her actions, but has no time to contemplate these choices after Neon uses a Reality Grenade to aid in their continued flight.
Jumping from Ivy Town to Slaughter Swamp and Blackhawk Island, Neon desperately attempts to throw Onimarr Synn off of their trail, but not before stopping off to have a small chat with A.I. Specialist June Robbins.
