Episode 201 – CAUGHT

It has been months since the team escaped from the FBI. They are all living together. Tasha has created false IDs for them all, except Damien who does not go out. They have had no contact with Deanna or Kimberly since the escape (122). We see Kimberly using all her resources to try and find them. The FBI is also looking for them. Tasha and Damien don't get along.

They are found and captured again. Damien is captured with them and locked up. This time Jake Shaw talks with them all. He says they are very lucky to have a friend like Kimberly. She has convinced his superiors that they are an asset, so from now on they will work for the US Government under the codename: MEGA FORCE. The team refuses. Jake explains it's either that or prison. He also explains all the benefits. They agree. Damien cops a plea with Jake, he will lead them to Veil's base and help them take down her crime ring. He leads them to their last headquarters but it has been evacuated and rigged with explosives. Damien tries to convince Jake that he is an asset to the team. Page vouches for him, and he reluctantly agrees but on a trial basis.

Jake gives them a tour of the facilities including the Tainted Prison. Inside, they see Chris. Jake has been assigned as head of Operation: Mega Force. He is their commanding officer. He also explains that they must go through both physical training and a written exam. They meet Kimberly there and she tells them that she has agreed to cooperate with the government, using her sources to inform them of any illegal tainted activity. Also, Deanna has been recruited to work with them. Deanna replicates the neutralizing serum for the team to use to apprehend criminals.





Episode 202 - RELATIONS

Damien finds the files on NowGex and sees his name on the list. When he asks about it, he discovers that he, too, was part of the genetic experiments conducted in the early 80's. He goes to Deanna and asks her if she knows how to reverse this. She now has access to new information as the government has been given copies of NowGex's work. With it, Deanna works on a way to reverse the artificial tainting. Steve also begins to consider the possibilities of maybe living a normal life. He discusses it with Julie.

The entire team is trained in traditional hand-to-hand combat as well as the use of their powers. Julie starts taking the painkillers again when she gets a migraine after using her powers. Jake and Brandon clash when Jake pushes him to train harder. Jake tells him that he should be able to do more. He hasn't reached his potential. Tasha is upset with Page for helping Damien get on the team.

Jake tries to repair his relationship with Kimberly, but she says they are only friends.

Agent Garner and Dr. PreSteve have a meeting. They argue when Garner accuses NowGex of withholding information. PreSteve in turn, asks for more money and information regarding the use of their technology. Later that night, Agent Garner is killed.





Episode 203 - HOMECOMING

The team continues training with government personnel and they pass their final tests. They are now ready for field duty. Operation Mega Force severs all ties with NowGex. Jake confronts Dr. PreSteve and is convinced that he is behind Garner's murder. Unfortunately, there is no evidence against him.

Page talks to Julie and Deanna about her family and how estranged they are. Deanna suggests that maybe she should contact them, at least get closure, so she can move on. She calls and discovers her mother is deathly ill. She goes back to New York to see her, alone. She sees her mother, Lily, and finds out that she wanted to see her. Page realizes her father, Sam, kept them apart. While at the hospital, she sees Peter Harris, a former victim from her days with Damien and his gang. He has been in a coma for two years. Page has flashbacks of what she and Damien did to him. Her mother dies. Page talks with her father and brother, Randy, who are still freaked out by her, and tells them that this will be the last time they will see each other. She becomes extremely depressed.

Julie continues taking painkillers and seems to be taking them more frequently. The team goes back to Corner Pocket for the first time in months. Steve and Julie get engaged and tell the others.

Deanna continues to study NowGex's research. Tasha confronts Damien with her feelings about him and her brother. She says they are not friends and if he so much as looks at her the wrong way she will burn him alive without a second thought.





Episode 204 - REVERSAL

Deanna devises a dangerous procedure that should, in theory, reverse the artificial tainting done by NowGex. Damien agrees to go under. He emerges as a normal looking person. He doesn't wake up until the end of the episode. It turns out he was born tainted before the procedure, but he doesn't know what his powers are yet. Damien goes out in the sun for the first time in years.

Page has not reported for work or answered her phone since coming back from her trip home (203). Brandon goes in to see her and finds her in bed, crying in the dark, watching soap operas. He tries to get her to go out, but she refuses. She puts him under her spell to send him away.

Steve and Julie discuss the procedure. If he becomes a norm, he won't be able to be a part of Mega Force. His superiors leave the decision up to him, but warn him that without his participation in Mega Force, he will be subject to prosecution for his vigilante acts. Steve thinks it over. In the end, Steve decides not to go through with the procedure.

Julie takes her pills in front of Tasha and she notices the urgency and shakiness in Julie.

The team helps them find a missing member (Kevin "Aqua" Marx, Icey's little brother). It turns out Kevin was caught stealing food from the newsstand at the subway station. He was arrested, but was shot. Now there is a huge fuss at the hospital as some people want to actually dissect the real life tainted person. With the help of Detective Ramsey, the team finds out where Kevin is. They encounter Dr. Colin PreSteve. He wants to dissect Kevin, and see how his powers work. He argues that it would be a huge breakthrough in the medical community. He also thinks that the results could help them come up with a weapon to stop the tainted. The team sneaks him out of the hospital. They are seen and shot at. Damien discovers his powers when the bullets don't hurt him. Deanna tells him he seems to be indestructible. In the tunnels, Tasha thinks she saw Johnny, but only for a moment. The team contacts Kimberly and she sets up a safehouse for the outcasts.

Page is still depressed. Damien goes to see her. She is shocked to see him looking like a norm. He talks with her. She tells him he should have killed her. She tells him about the victim she saw at the hospital. Damien tries to dismiss it as something that happened a long time ago, that they have changed since then. Page doesn't want to hear it. Jake pays her a visit. She is a wreck. He tells Deanna. She goes to see her and gives her anti-depressants and encourages her to talk about it.

Julie is doing much better and at the end, she gets out of rehab. Steve gets out of the hospital. Tasha takes care of him as he continues to recuperate.

Congressman Baxter has actually commissioned the creation of the cyborgs to propose as a military weapon. He argues before Congress that this would give the military the ability to reuse casualties of war, creating expendable but powerful soldiers. The debates continue.

The team must recover an airborne virus that, if released, will kill every tainted person within a five hundred mile radius. This virus is based on the data that George had refused to steal for NowGex (215). Unfortunately, Dr. PreSteve was able to steal the information without him. Now NowGex has created a prototype, a small missile carrying the virus. The plane carrying the virus crashes in the forests of Oregon en route from Seattle to Los Angeles. It is a race as NowGex, a group of FGP militia, and Mega Force scramble to find the device. The militia finds the device first and launches the missile. Fortunately, Jason "Cyclone" Carrington, who is convinced that they are responsible for his friend's disappearance, was following them. When the device is launched, he uses his powers to create tornadoes to blow the missile up into orbit, where the virus disintegrates in the atmosphere. The militia flees and the NowGex agents disperse.
