After the whirlwind that has been the last three issues, the heroes get a couple of days to wind down. Arsenal sits down with the new additions, both to learn more about them and to detail for them what’s required for team membership: full background check and some basic law enforcement training. Bella refuses the background check, so Arsenal proposes that she be considered a freelance contractor. The DHS may still have some problems with that.
The team becomes aware of a breaking news story: a flaming tornado has appeared in mid-town Manhattan and is now tearing up Times Square.
