monster (last iss.), taken to a lab, and "addled."

part-black and part-fire.

he had been trying to fly past the earth's atmosphere,
apparently a suicide attempt.

Synopsis:	Clarke has sent the Flight to recover Wolverine,
and given them radar that can detect adamantium. Although he
doesn't have that any more, they find and confront him for
the supposed murder of Jeffries (see last iss.). Logan talks
big, then drives away.
	Radius and Mac bicker; Puck breaks it up. Mac flies after
Logan and attacks him. Heather sends Murmur and Sasquatch to
see who Logan had chained up in a potato sack (Sauron, see
Uncanny X-Men 355). The rest help Mac. X-Men arrive and help
Logan. They fight; Murmur tries to mind-control Maggott and
gets wicked backlash. Sam and Flex talk and realize Logan
was in jail when Jeffries was supposedly killed. The Flight
realizes Clarke lied and plans to have words with him.
	Lilli wants to go back to Hull House; Clarke has her
sedated. Sunfire wants to go back to Japan.

Synopsis:	Heather fumes at Clarke for deceiving them about
Wolverine; he claims he was given false information himself.
Heather rejects this explanation and says they'll let him
know if and when they'll go on another mission. Clarke makes
a phone call to take care of this situation.
	Puck accosts Radius, telling him to become a team player,
or else.
	Flex's Internet search (iss. 7) has revealed that Jared's
father was Unus the Untouchable.
	Heather packs to leave; Puck shows her an e-mail warning,
which asks them to meet in the Prometheus Division. They
find Myra there, warning that Clarke is abusing her
technological acquisitions. She offers to conceal the team,
which just then runs in, pursued by guards.
	Myra uses the Prometheus Pit to shrink them and send them
into the Microverse. Clarke congratulates her on containing
them.
	Taurus finds Virgo in Paris, with the people she has
killed, and ports her back to the Zodiac.
	The team finds themselves in Antica, a tiny world
populated by intelligent insects, but by humans under Zebek.
They are served a feast by insects and see insect
gladiators, and realize this is a tyranny. Mac finds
scientists building a quark-bomb.

retreats before they are overwhelmed.
	Director X lets Clarke know who's boss; Mac lets Heather
know that he doesn't love Murmur (see kiss, iss. 7). Diamond
Lil is being experimented on in the Beta Flight wing; so is
Lilli.
	Disguised, Alpha Flight and the Micronauts get into the
body tanks, free Manbot, inspire a prison riot, and attack
Zebek in his palace. Mac uses an E-M pulse to break Zebek's
body parts apart, and Gasha refuses to explode the
quarkarion bomb, instead planning to take Zebek to the body

Synopsis:	The Flight returns from the Microverse to find
Dept. H under attack by the Zodiac. Disorganized, they
attack and are beaten back, with Haddock and Murmur badly
hurt. Sasquatch savagely attacks the Zodiac, while Scorpio
finds what he was after: a huge steel cube in Haddock's lab.
	Northstar returns to his sister's school; it has burned
down, and Aurora is inside, mad, pretending to be a teacher.
	Chaos reigns in Dept. H, and the Flight fails to have a
plan, and the Zodiac ports around, striking at will. Manbot
takes Flex to the 13th floor, where he can monitor the
entire building. Radius and Sasquatch are cornered by the
Ooze, a huge biological mass the Zodiac found in a lab.
Sasquatch saves Radius by lifting him up, allowing the Ooze
to eat his flesh to the bone.
	Mac and Puck trap half the Zodiac in their training room
and learn that Gemini is Jeffries; they then port away.
Radius and Sunfire destroy the Ooze. Heather follow Clarke,
who says Zodiac has sabotaged the nuclear reactor. He tries
to stop it but is killed by the radiation.
	Manbot realizes the Zodiac's purpose: to steal the Nth
Projector (Marvel 2-in-1 58) and cause a rift in space.
	Heather's suit nearly overloads absorbing all the
reactor's radiation, but she is able to prevent it
exploding. The Flight rushes to her side, allowing the
Zodiac to escape.

	In Antarctica, the real Sasquatch finds Mac's frozen
body, original age, and plans to revive him.

Synopsis:	At Sasquatch's funeral, Heather tells Mac
they're through, since he is too young to remember their
life together. Then she, he, and Puck give eulogies,
reminiscing about Walter in front of the real sasquatch's
giant coffin. Puck makes Radius take the podium, and he
raves for a while, then stalks off, guilty over Sasquatch's
death.
	At Dept. H, Gentry is Gen. Clarke's replacement, and he
cleans house. He reprimands the staff, reassigns the guards,
moves the captive trainees into the Alpha wing, cancels the
Helios project since Sunfire has fled, and orders openness
and accountability all around. Director X questions his
methods, lets him know that Walter is alive, and admits to
mind-wiping the team. How much to tell the team, he leaves
up to Gentry, who stops by the funeral and calls a meeting
for the morning. A new day for the Flight.
	Off the coast of Greenland, a reporter looking for a

Synopsis:	The army goes to an iceberg off Labrador to
rescue the Navigator's crew (see last iss.) Only one is
still alive, and to avoid capture, he blows everyone up with
dynamite.
	At Dept. H, Gentry says the Navigator has shown up as a
ghost ship in Newfoundland, and since then communication
with the town of White Cross has been cut off. It happens to
be that his sister, the Prime Minister's wife, was there,
and the Flight is sent in ("for province and planet").
Gentry voices misgivings about Mac's leadership, and Mac
feels he has no support.
	Walt finds Michael near Anchorage; Jean-Paul finds
Jean-Marie at magnetic north. His powers disappear; then she
does, stranding him. Huxley argues with Gentry about moving
the Betas out of their cells.
	Manbot tells Heather that his programming has changed, so
he can reveal much about Dept. H to her. Puck and Flex find
the Navigator, with her captain tied to her prow. Radius
finds the townspeople in church, transformed into zombies
(must be Anglican).
	One little girl is unaffected and leads them to a tower.
But she is a zombie too, and nearly crashes their jet into a
tower in the tundra. Puck forces himself to remember it: the
Tower of Babel (referring to the Biblical one, which Mac
thinks was built by Moses's descendants. Must be Anglican.)
	This one was built by the Brass Bishop.
