Synopsis:
Dr. Doom arrives and finds Hugo Longride dead at the hands of Flynn. It turns out that Longride was a robot placed by Doom to keep tabs on Flynn who claims to be his son. Flynn tells his fellow mutants that he plans on leading them in the overthrow of Latveria. Realizing the plan is suicidal madness, Max frees the Beast and Dazzler and they lead a revolt against Flynn. Doom warns the fallen Flynn to stop telling people that Doom is his father. With the mutants in control of the arena, they decide to turn it into something more productive. Dazzler and Beast break off their relationship.
