a group of young heroes have been sent to 'Hero Boot Camp' in Stamford, Connecticut, the site of the explosion that launched the whole civil war. The issue largely follows the young heroes MVP, Cloud 9, Armory, and Trauma, as well as their drill-sergeant, Gauntlet. MVP is established as one of the most capable young heroes there and begins to express some feelings for the shy and self-conscious Cloud 9. During a training exercise, however, Trauma's powers accidentally cause Armory to lose control of her powers, and MVP is apparently killed pushing Cloud 9 out of the way. In response, they forcibly remove Armory's power-glove and kick her out of the camp. Henry Peter Gyrich, who is overseeing the entire project, informs Trauma and Cloud 9 that the mishap 'never happened.'
