The Initiative

Gauntlet continues to run the cadets througha track whilst Yellowjacket and Justice watch, Justice mentions he dislikes Gauntlet using the term "New Warriors" as a deterrent as they were misguided heroes, not villains but Hank ignores it.

In the middle of the course, Cloud 9 starts panicking about what happened to MVP and trauma cant help but turn into her worst fear, a zombie MVP, Yellowjacket intervenes and he turns into Yellowjacket's fear instead, the situation is defused and Justice takes trauma way for separate training.

Yellowjacket is called to Blitzschlag's quarters where MVP's body is being kept.
The Baron mentions that experiments on this body could help forward the initiative but Yellowjacket hates the idea but Gyrich allows it. The baron taunts Yellowjacket by saying he is his greatest fan for creating Salvation I and the Thor clone.

Suddenly the initiative receives a distress call saying the Rangers need backup battling a hydra army.

The entire camp prepare to go battle Hydra with flight powers or jetpacks.
They battle their way through HYDRA whilst Gyrich tells Trauma he can help him control his power.

HYDRA prepare to suicide bomb the senator they are targeting but Yellowjacket takes them off course and is caught in the explosion, he survives what should have been instant death by going subatomic. Back at base the cadets celebrate whilst Gyrich and Trauma meet Trauma's new tutor.
They go to the hangar where they are greeted by Beast who is acting as a bodyguard and taunts Gyrich.

Trauma is then introduced to the tutor.
