|Issue 1: Mutants Mobilize|
|The issue opens up with Elias' two heads talking to themselves, which zooms out into a wide, stilled, darkened shot of a locked down protean city. Frequency's resistance has been holding The Bash. Tyvon invites Virgil and Ben onto MutyCast to discuss the conflict. Frequency takes a hard stance against F.A.L.C.O.N., in direct opposition to Virgil.
John has been working with Dr. Amari, staying out of the conflict, doing research into helping Windshear get back home. Sage has been interim matron of PCOY ever since Lunar Lens' dissapearance in Vol. 19. Kalino has been in a funk since Vol. 18's events.
Frequency uses Lambda to predict F.A.L.C.O.N.'s next target, which is near Kalino's house, who he contacts to warn. Kalino agrees to help, and Frequency preps for an up comming fight in an attempt to avoid collatoral damage by studying the area and gathering a team.
Near PCOY, Striped Eagles fly over head, putting Sage on edge and making her lock down the orphanage, then rides off after them. Puck takes the subway. Kalino dresses up as D.N.E. for the first time.
The group, minus Puck, arrives at an alley opposite of Jerry's Bar, the mutant bar that's the target of F.A.L.C.O.N. A Striped Eagle catches and confronts them, and after an attempted lie, Sage fires on them. After being hit, she calls into question Frequency's leadership skills and willingness to fight, who steps out into the open to prove her wrong and diffuse the situation by using his powers.
Puck, trailing behind, closes in on the scene, is side-tracked by an explosion and villainous laughter. He finds Mr. Derecho, Ms. Isquierda, and Gloom responsible for blowing up a government building, and steps in with wild arcane power to stop them. As the wave of uncontrolled magic launches back the Hands of Evil, Gloom dives forward through it, sending it back towards Puck.
|Issue 2: A Moment to Breathe|
|Cover: Sage, D.N.E. and Frequency stand back to back to back, lit only by the neon lights of the small bar they stand protecting. Opposite them is Striped Eagle, backed by thousands of steel armoured duplicates, standing in rows that seem to go on forever. The words on the bottom read: Is all hope lost.|
Elsewhere, Hexwyrm speaks to her, driving Sage, telling her she's better than the rest. She rides away on her motorcycle straight to F.A.L.C.O.N. headquarters in hopes of freeing Lunar Lens.
|Issue 3: Whose Side Are You On|
|Cover: A Stylized portrait of the Striped Eagle. She strikes a bold pose backed by a team of identical Eagles. The AD copy Reads: Never fear, for F.A.L.C.O.N has returned. The Striped Eagle Guard will keep Protean City safe from the Marauding Mutant Menace.
|Issue 4: Assembly Required|
|Cover: Sage stands alone atop the grand staircase in the falcon HQ, bodies of familiar mutants lay strewn all around her as she holds the unconscious body of Lunar Lens in her arms. Her other gauntleted hand, raised up straight, sends a blazing beacon of hope for all to see.
We open to a surrounded and beaten down group of escaped mutants, as Sage calls Frequency to war and looks to Lunar Lens for advice. Back at Town Hall, Frequency calls Alina for help, and then The Asset calls with coordinates to Falcon's true center which he plans to strike. Alina drives herself and Kidshear straight to the base. The Director watches over the situation, calls the doctor to prepare a contingency, then heads out.
Back at *The* falcon base, Sage uses her bike to create an explosive distraction and retreats further into the base, where she is found by The Director. Outside, the rest of the team meet up, and overhear The Director asking Holly to activate "The Swarm." Frequency cuts of Holly's communication as Arcana approaches. She finds out the Swarm activates the Striped Eagles' nanobots and traps the city in a dome, and then Puck attacks Holly. Holly goes to attack back but is trapped in electricity by the director, who wants her to turn on the swarm.
Back inside, Lunar Lens asks to go back in the tank. Ben rushes to their aid. Outside, Puck puts his game face on and commits to saving Sage, and charges his power. Reuniting with Sage, Puck reads Lunar Lens' mind only to find parts where memory is missing. Back outside, Isaac tries to chew through the wires in Holly's suit but accidentally activates self-destruct overheat. D.N.E. tries to help her, but is pulled away by the other Striped Eagles. Back inside, Puck explains what he saw, and they realize she's been cloned.
|Issue 5: Second Chances|
|Cover: Sage, Puck, and Frequency stare in horror at the nanobot
infused figure of the Lunar Lens. "Get ready for some explosive action."
The comic opens on a bird before an explosion, and text that warns of what is to come. At the base, Kidshear leaps to defend D.N.E. who is being dragged away by Striped Eagles. D.N.E. runs to Holly's help, cooling her suit down using water orbs.
Back inside, Puck is thrown back by Lunar Lens, who is promptly levitated by Arcana. Sage pushes Frequency to turn the bots off, and he promptly does. Sage begins to breakdown as the group realizes this is a clone Lunar Lens. Arcana reveals the big F.A.L.C.O.N. base where Lens is being held and the Director is preparing to head out in C.O.N.D.O.R. They head out in their car, while fairies lead clone Lens to the lighthouse.
Kalino continues to try to help Holly but realizes he won't have enough time to save her. He creates a barrier from his orbs, which catches on fire from the explosion and sets the square burning. Kalino launches up and is caught by Arcana. Isaac is fine. Holly dies.
Puck tries to transfer Holly's memory to a clone, and seems to succeed, but at the cost of tying it to Jack Chance. As the group recovers, Kalino is sent to the hospital with Ramon and Ben, while the group prepares for the final assault.
Sage and Alina get into a fight over how Kalino handled the situation. Puck runs away with the New-Holly. Alina and Sage get into a new motorcycle, share a moment, and then head off.
