Story Arc(s): Add/remove story arcs to this issue
In Baghdad, the Gauntlet is taking part in an escort job and saves Henry Peter Gyrich from Hydra and is recruited into the Initiative as a drill instructor.
In Illinois, Cloud 9 is out for a stroll when she is interrupted by War Machine for being unregistered. He recruits her into the Initiative.
In Kentucky Justice is recruiting a boy named MVP who is the descendant of Abraham Erskine and is at the peak of human body without superhuman powers.
In California, the Mighty Avengers battle a giant Ultron robot however a girl named Armory brings it down first and they recruit her to the Initiative.
Days later the cadets are riding into Camp Hammond (where civilians are protesting against the Initiative being in their state).
Present on the bus are: Slapstick, Ultra Girl, Bengal, Cloud 9, Trauma, Hardball, Thor Girl, Rage, Komodo and Armory.
Yellowjacket, who is the base director, gives them the opening speech before handing them over to Gauntlet for training.
Yellowjacket and War Machine then speak to Justice about MVP who is performing well on the track with She-Hulk.
The cadets are all given costumes and code names and prepare for training, Cloud 9 accidentally walks into the mens shower and sees MVP.
MVP later talks to Triathlon for directions to the cadets and he watches them train (Armory, Cloud 9, Komodo, Hardball, Trauma).
Armory easily defeats the robots in front of the other cadets, Yellowjacket, Gyrich and Baron Von Blitzschlag (a reformed Nazi scientist).
Trauma takes his turn against the robots and his power is revealed to be turning into someones worst fear, he turns into armory's and she freaks out, killing MVP who was saving Cloud 9 at the time. Gyrich orders them to keep quiet.
Armory's power gauntlet is removed and she is kicked off the base, when Rage asks Trauma what happened he replies "absolutely nothing".
