Northstar battles mind-controlled circus performers in Russia, knowing he is in a predicament, as although they are his enemies, he must not harm them since they are attacking him against their will. He thinks back to his days in the circus where he also was sort of a terrorist, pressing for the separation of Quebec from Canada.
After getting away from the circus performers, he finds himself confronted by Weapon P.R.I.M.E., who still intend on bringing Jean-Paul in.
However, they must team up to stop the mind-controlled circus performers, so while Yeti, Killspree and Double Trouble defend themselves, Northstar and Tigerstryke take to the air, where Tigerstryke uses his battle suit to detect the source of the mind-control, he then destroys it.
In the wreckage, Jean-Paul finds a tarot card for a shop in New Orleans, and takes off before Weapon P.R.I.M.E. can arrest him, angering Tigerstryke. Arriving at the magic shop, Jean-Paul is rendered unconscious by another of Arcade’s robots, and wakes in a reconstruction of a destroyed Quebec City Bus Terminal - which he played a part in the bombing of.
“Zombies” force him to admit his guilt, before he is attacked by yet another group of super beings. Meanwhile, Arcade contacts his current employer in Canada, and decides that if Weapon P.R.I.M.E. continue to interfere in his plans, then Canada will be without its newest super team.
