Synopsis
Alpha Flight tries to figure out what to do with Purple Girl and her powerful powers of persuasion. She becomes frightened and escapes with Jeffries in thrall, just as he is trying to separate Bochs from Box. After a shopping spree in Toronto, Kara and Jeffries are captured by the Auctioneer who plans to sell the pair to the highest bidder as living weapons. Alpha Flight intervenes and decide to make Purple Girl the first member of the new Beta Flight.
