As the Squadron Supreme attempts to eliminate guns, they turn their attentions to Nuke who has been AWOL for almost a month. Sending Doctor Spectrum to search for Nuke, Tom Thumb gives him a piece of advice. When Spec finally locates Nuke, Nuke lashes out in anger and flies off to get his revenge on Tom Thumb. It is then that Nuke and Spec are locked in a life and death battle that ends when Nuke is accidentally killed at the hands of his teammate. Elsewhere, the rest of the Squadron feels the distrust that much of the world still holds for them.
