Synopsis
Rom and Alpha Flight try to pick up the pieces from the devastation a tidal wave caused to the town of Beaver Falls. Ant-Man arrives and offers to help Rom and Starshine discover how the Wraith plagued waters are effecting the soil of Canada. The Spaceknights shrink down with Ant-Man and descend an ant hill, discovering that the water is turning ants into monsters. Rom and Starshine decide to get even smaller and battle the Wraith plague on a molecular level.
