Justin Hammer's plan to drive the rich out of the affluent areas of Los Angeles by starting a gang war was in jeopardy because of Silver Sable and her Wild Pack. Hammer told his assistant to call his minions in the Los Angeles area which included Cyclone, Afterburner, Beetle, Blacklash, Spymaster, Boomerang andBlizzard to prepare an assault on Silver Sable and her crew. Hammer's minions ambushed Silver Sable and the Wild Pack inside a warehouse. Things started to get out of control when the gang members jumped into the fray so Cyclone and the rest of Hammer's minions retreated away in their transport. It was later reported that Gregory Stevens was killed in a skiing accident.
