Synopsis
Alex and Logan are vacationing in Mexico when they are forced to abscond with the car of a beautiful woman to escape from Mexican gunmen (she comes along for the ride). Their peril continues as they are chased by goons with lasers whom Havok dispatches with a few well placed plasma bolts. No one is more surprised than our heroes, however, when their new girlfriend pulls out a gun and shoots them. Wolverine wakes up in the hospital to learn that he and Alex were pumped full of bubonic plague and Alex has died. Suspicious, Logan digs up Alex's grave to find a dummy in the coffin.
