Continuation from Issue #2. The issue opens with Silver Sable in a fencing dual with her ex-husband, the Foreigner. The Foreigner being the person she plays "Tag" with. The Foreigner provides, sort of, with information concerning the assissination attempt, and it is then revealed that the Reverend Smithfield is actually involved in drug traficking. Scene shift and then we are introduced to BattleStar, who eventually becomes a member of the Wild Pack. Reverend Chesterford who had ordered the hit on Smithfield is then assassinated, by the Foreigner, in disguise. Seems Smithfield had hired the Foreigner to take out Chesterford. Back at the Symkarian Embassy in New York, the Watchdogs show up and try to free their colleagues being held hostage. At the same time, Gattling shows up to take out Silver, but fails. Then an aerial pursuit begins, and features a balls-out move by BattleStar where he jumps out of a stealthcraft without a chute and takes out Gattling. The issue ends back at the Embassy with Silver turning over Smithfield to the FBI on drug charges. Comic Book Library
