After betraying the entire group of Runaways, Alex unfreezes Nico and offers her a place next to him in immortality (kind of like Vader and Luke). He explains why he's been at the side of his parents this entire time and spills about the plans of Hayes and Dean families plotting to murder the rest of the Pride. However, she doesn't go along with it and punches him. She wakes up the rest of the team and Chase bursts through the wall in the Leapfrog. In the confusion, Molly destroys the container with the soul in it.
Suddenly, the Gibborim appear and vaporize Alex for his impudence. The rest of the runaways pile into the Leapfrog and escape, only to find Captain America.
