Synopsis
Continued from previous issue: The U.S. government agrees to pay the ransom to prevent the detonation of the second monolith. Krell collects the drop-off but hides it as insurance, correctly guessing that Landon intends to kill and frame him. Unknown to Krell, Tawny informs the DNAgents of the scheme and Landon's location. They bring him to custody and reveal (via Harden) the threat was a hoax.

Indexer Notes

Following this story, the first two issues of the "Crossfire" series take place. Then the events of the "Surge" mini-series begin and run concurrently with "DNAgents" and "Crossfire" for the remainder of the year.
