As the conspiracy that cost her father his life begins to unfold, Jenny and the Spitfire battle armor find themselves caught between a rock and a hard place. If Spitfire is going to escape Krotze and his goons she'll need a little help from some friends.
Flying the Mark 2 M.A.X. suit to Boston General Hospital, Jenny paid her pal Giotti a visit; he was pretty broken up by Krotze International security guards during his break-in on their grounds. His ribs were pretty crushed up, and Jenny felt bad, so she went to visit him.
While there, the police arrived to ask her some questions about the theft of some 'hardware' from Krotze International, as Fritz Krotze himself pointed the cops her way. At this point, Jenny accused him of murdering her father, which the police couldn't investigate without any proper proof, as they'd already closed the case on her father's death.
Meanwhile, Fritz Krotze was busy dealing with the pilot he had use the Mark 1 M.A.X. armor to attack Jenny Swensen. The man wanted more money to ease his conscience, as he was also the trigger man that killed her father. Fritz obliged him by testing out Krotze International's new laser prototype on his body. Of course, he wasn't dead until after the test...
In a Boston warehouse, Jenny was busy readying her armor for an assault upon Krotze International's facility, when she was greeted by two of the Troubleshooters, who had designed some more devices based on her father's M.A.X. technology. Ferris, for example, had built a set of leg braces that allowed him to run real fast, which he calls 'Fast-Back'.
Terry, on the other hand, created the 'Think-Tank', a special helmet that allows her to interface with computer systems in a sort of impromptu cyber-space. She demonstrated its abilities by hacking into Krotze's systems, getting Jenny a layout of the complex. Some of the Troubleshooters wanted to go with Jenny, but she wouldn't let them, a fact that suited Terry fine; she wasn't happy with Jenny lately.
While Krotze explained to Major Benton (a Department of Defense representative) how he'd damaged that Behemoth tank, Jenny smashed her way into Krotze International, accidentally shooting Benton with her laser cannon. Making sure she hadn't killed him, Swensen continued on to the Krotze database to retrieve the proof she needed to put the man behind bars.
Once she got it, Jenny fled from the large array of armed gunmen waiting for her, only to walk right into the path of Krotze's S.D.I. laser weapon, which he was more than happy to use on her. If not for the timely intervention of the Troubleshooters, who cut off the laser beam being used on Jenny, she would've been cooked in her armor.
Once freed from the energy attack, Jenny smashed up the laser system before it could be used against her again, and she and the Troubleshooters then made for safety. After cleaning up the mess, Krotze went home to get some sleep, only to find that an agent of the Club known as Steel Hawk had broken into his home, and was going to likely hurt him...
