Synopsis:
Dr. Doom arrives at the underground mutant arena to find the owner, Hugo Longride, dead at the hands of Flynn; It turns out that Longride was a sophisticated robot placed by Doom to keep tabs on Flynn who claims to be his son; Now in control of the arena, Flynn tells his fellow mutants that he plans on leading them in the overthrow of Latveria so he can take his rightful place on the throne; Realizing the plan is suicidal madness, Max frees the chained up Beast and Dazzler and they lead a revolt against Flynn; When the dust clears, Doom warns the fallen Flynn that he had better 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 for their own benefit; Dazzler and Beast leave the arena and break off their relationship to go their separate ways.
