Synopsis
With their parents dead and gone, the Runaways begin patrolling the streets of L.A. They try to talk the Excavator out of robbing a bank with his dad, Piledriver, but end up fighting the whole Wrecking Crew. The ex-super hero support group, Excelsior, has their meeting interrupted by a mysterious benefactor who offers them a million dollars if they can track down the Runaways. Meanwhile, back at the base, the kids are shocked when a machine bearing a future Gertie shows up and she tells them they have to track down and stop a kid named Victor who will grow up to kill all of Earth's heroes.
