Thanks to blacking out New York City and stealing diamonds, Longshot's picture is plastered all over the news. He befriends Butch, Darla and their gang of friends and gives them some of the diamonds. Running across She-Hulk and then Spider-Man, Longshot is attacked by both heroes. Longshot's powers allow him to escape and he reunites with the kids who are going on a monster hunt with a gun. Longshot touches the gun and it sparks more memories of his former life. Longshot and the gang track down the monster who turns out to be Magog. Mojo and Spiral teleport to Earth and arrive in Rita's home.

Indexer Notes

Butch and Darla's gang of friends were later named the "Bratpack" in New Mutants Annual #2 and X-Men Annual #10 and then the "Fat Boys" when they made regular appearances in Daredevil (all written by Ann Nocenti). The gang's look is patterned after the Little Rascals. Butch's father appears in partial shadow and is a parody of Ronald Reagan.
