Flying above Washington D.C. is a plane surrounded by members of the Initiative, who are on their way to Camp Hammond. Hardball looks out the plane at Justice and comments that Justice must know because he keeps looking at Cloud 9.
He continues by guessing that Justice can read minds, a feat most telekinetics can perform and he becomes angry with this idea. Turning to Komodo he says that even if Komodo does not care about Justice being in her mind in his own case, he has some secrets he would like to keep secret.
In shock he turns to see an attractive young black-haired woman at his side rather than the lizard creature he was expecting. He stares at her as she yawns and wakes up, in horror she looks at her human hands. Immediately a transformation takes place and she turns on Hardball unleashing her fury, “HARDBALL! What did you see?!”
Komodo freaks out and Hardball tries to defend himself from the lizard-like enraged female. An enraged Gauntlet, followed by Pym, runs to the “rescue” of Hardball shouting at Komodo to restrain herself. Gauntlet’s right arm wraps around Komodo and with it he rips her out of her seat demanding answers.
She says that he saw her when she was powered down and knows her secret identity, Pym questions Hardball on this. He says that its just some girl, nobody that he knew…Hardball smiles and then says to a relieved Komodo, “Hey, Komodo…nice to finally meet you.”
