Gary Nieves and his people arrive at the earth Bet portals to help with a flood
A call comes in that a few flood of evacuees is coming in and some of the already tired group steps up to help.
Afterword the heroes chat with Gary. They inform him that the onsite manager died in the attack.
Later Nieves meets with Erwin Daeyoung a korean man, and former Public representative. He outlines the history of Wynn and talks about all the things that could go wrong under her leadership. Gary is skeptical but Erwin tries to assuage him with a strategy that could help Gary get back in the mayoral race. Erwin shares a database of 'victims' of parahumans. At the top of the list is the Martin's.
- A Hostile power begins an insurgency.
- Gary Nieves decides to give politics another shot.
- One recommendation is he place the the City under the protection of some other suzerain world.
- The PRT and Cauldron would have intervened before the muckraking about parahumans like Erwinn's plan gained any major steam.
