Whitman Knapp manifests past and future versions of himself and helps Jeffries back into his Box armor. Box and the new hero, Manikin, save Alpha Flight from being absorbed by Omega. Purple Girl controls Omega and forces him to undo the physical damage he has done to Madison. Realizing that neither his brother or Roger can be saved, Jeffries uses the Box armor to kill Omega. Northstar collapses from his sickness.
