Shortly thereafter a homeless man named Lenny is in the reception area meeting Meredith Jacobson and Enigma. Most of the tem then arrive to see what Lenny needs. Another new paranormal arrival, Bo, vouches for Lenny and wants to join the team.

They follow some leads and have some reason to suspect the new CEO of Kodak, Cherry Mai. Doctor Dinosaur, Polar RIpple, and Bo go to meet with her in her office for lunch.

The lunch meeting with Cherry is bizarre. She reveals herself to be a supervillain calling herself Melodrama. She does not know where Silverstreak is, but knows he vanished the same time her boyfriend, Resilient I disappeared. She wants the Paragons help looking for Resilient.

The team returns to base. After a brief meeting with Thomas Harley Bo and Jack officially join the team. Then the team meets Oracle (Anita Henrichs) who is able to get them a lead in the search for Silverstreak.

After investigating leads the Paragons find themselves at an abandoned industrial area. Enigma is able to scout out the area and finds that Silverstreak is being held by Xaltotun and a group of followers. Among the followers are a stretchy guy and a stone guy.

The heroes are able to easily rescue Silverstreak and defeat the assorted criminals. As soon as the battle is over a number of military vehicles arrive under the command of Air Force General Silver. Silver wants to take Silverstreak and Xaltotun into custody since they are both AWOL. He then gives the team a hint to the location of Resilient I.

After the military leaves the Monroe County authorities arrive to take the other criminals. They appear to have some equipment that may nullify or hamper paranormal abilities. The origin of the technology is unknown.

Finally Fortress, Enigma, and Doctor Dinosaur follow General SIlver’s clue and rescue Resilient I from the foundation of a building that is just starting to go up.
