The hunt for an antique battery forces Lifeline, Gibraltar, Octane and Pathfinder to confront their pasts, as families are reunited, secrets are uncovered, and their loved ones are taken hostage! But who's the real villain in this story? You only think you know...
"I’ll make it quick. One swing. You won’t feel a thing."
Psych! You thought that was the beginning of the story? It’s actually the middle… but it’s super-dramatic, so you want to stick around, don’t you? HAH! Che says I’m a terrible storyteller. That I “meander”. It’s “frustrating”. Who’s meandering now, hermana? Wait, what was I saying? RIGHT. Our story actually starts…
...with a coupla boring MRVNs.
"Bruddah hasn't left his side in days. Thinks it's a dead relative or sumthin'. Dumped, and now this. Wish we could power it on to cheer him up."
"So why don’t we?"
"That model’s from last century. Got a battery pack that old lying around?"
"I ... know a guy. Darion Che."
"Chica, NO-- OW!"
"Silva! Yuh still playin’ with that knife after I told yuh--"
"Darion Che? The drone guy?"
"Also my father, and a fool who collects antique robots. Chevrex is hostin’ a charity event down in Malta tonight. We could swing by and grab that battery pack."
"I’ll tag along. Do cops ever attend these events?"
"Why, Makoa? Yuh wanna report a crime?"
"Somethin’ like that."
"Well, glad to have ya along, “bruddah”.."
"You’re not goin’ without me! You can’t jump into a tank full of tiburones y serpientes without someone to pull you out. Tonight… I’m your lifeline. ¿Me entiendes?"
"Loud and clear. Polish your grapple, Path, ‘cuz we’re goin’ to a party!"
"What are yuh wearin', Gibby?"
"I could tell you. But I’d have to kill you…"
Does he kill her? Does Pathfinder die? What’s Gibby’s big secret? I already know, but you gotta wait. Hah! Waiting sucks, right? Come back next week and maybe you’ll see what I look like without goggles on…
"Find my parents, get the battery, and we’re out."
"Don’t have to tell me twice."
"Thank you, friends. I was down. Now I’m down but I look fancy."
Blah, blah. Lots of lame-o talk while we go through security. BORRRRRING... oh wait. You gotta see this. The people may suck...
...but check out this view!
"See ‘em, Ayj?"
"Yeah, yuh just follow the narcissism. Ri-i-i-i-i-ight..."
Darion: "...Father invested in Peck Labs, of all places. He’d take myself and Silva there after preschool. We were hellions. trashing every room in the lab."
Darion: "I can hear them callin’ after us: “Duardo! Darion! Darion! Duardo!”"
Cherisse: "The woman in charge... Reeves or something...hated children."
"She could learn a t’ing or two from yuh, Ma."
Vomit. No, really. I’ll fill you in, but you gotta see this first...
Nik: "I’m outside thinking ‘he’s not stupid enough to come here.’ Guess I misjudged you. Again."
"Don’t be mad!"
Nik: "If I wanted to see you--"
"I know...Nik. I know."
Ooh, that’s Nik! The ex! But amigos, things are getting even crazier on the roof...
Creighton: "...but for a phoenix to rise, a sacrifice must be made. As for all the citizens inside the museum, their deaths will usher in a new world order where-- who the hell are you?"
"Hi, friends! I’m looking for a battery for a--oh dear!"
Yo, this ain’t even the worst of it. But don’t worry. You only have to watch, like, two of us die. Just kidding! Or am I? I could be crying over the deaths of my friends right now. Just kidding, I never cry...or do I? See? YOU DON’T KNOW!! Yo, I’m the BEST at telling stories, I dunno know WHAT Che is talking about!! See you fools next week. Boo yah."
Pathfinder's SRVN MRVN skin makes an appearance in the comic, making it canonical. When it was pointed out that Pathfinder changed his entire body just to go to a party, writer Tom Casiello stated the inclusion of the skin was debated internally. Ultimately, "it's just fun" won over logic and Tom asked people not to dwell on it or overthink it.
