Dragon wakes up in Vanguard's space ship, having been transported to the ship moments before being incinerated. It still takes time to heal, but Dragon does and enlists Vanguard's help in finding some of his former allies. He finds Ann Stevens in Kansas City - she never fell and hit her wrists, so she doesn't know that she's Mighty Man. Dragon pounds her wrists together and convinces her to start training herself to help in the fight against Kahn. Dragon leaves her in Kansas in search of more allies.
