- I am damned. Damned to know the entirety of history. Past, present and future, all the same. Equally clear. Equally irrevocable. And so I go through the motions. As if I had a choice.

Synopsis for "Shadow of a Doubt"
Dharma ponders the problem of Icon and Rocket, two heroes not created by his own engineering. He sends two Shadow Cabinet operatives, Donner and Blitzen to attempt to recruit them. Meanwhile, Rocket is also approached by Holocaust, representing the Star Chamber and asking her to join them. Noble visits Mrs. Ervin, and offers to pay for Rocket's abortion. Icon continues to investigate the Big Bang, and travels to City Hall to question Mayor Thomasina Jefferson. A mercenary named Onslaught shows up, and attempts to kill Icon, hinting that his employers are trying to cover up the Big Bang's secrets. Meanwhile, Donner and Blitzen interrupt Holocaust, who has just managed to convince Rocket to join his side. While Donner fights Holocaust, Icon finishes beating up Onslaught, and is approached by Blitzen. Holocaust defeats Donner by burning up the oxygen around her head and knocking her unconscious. Although Icon initially refuses the offer of Shadow Cabinet membership, when he sees that Holocaust has taken Rocket away, he decides to at least for the time being, enlist.
- Dharma mentions several past events in Icon's career. His fight with Payback occurred in Icon #2-3, and his meeting with the Blood Syndicate occurred in Icon #4-5.
- Rocket refers to Holocaust as being so dangerous, even the Blood Syndicate didn't want him around. Holocaust left the Syndicate in Blood Syndicate #2. She also refers to Holocaust recruiting members for his new gang.
- While talking to Mayor Jefferson, Onslaught threatens her son, "Leonard". He is referring to Holocaust, who is actually her illegitimate child.
