Midnighter sees Kid Mindy to find any information about Anthem, a paramilitary-like security force which is governing Harmony from behind the scene. He then visits a printing company to print his calling card and again finds himself in a metahuman attack caused by a tentacle being. Midnighter changes into his costume and attacks the tentacles belong to a possessed homeless man. He kills the man, but only for whatever possessing him to go into a woman, identifying itself as "Draggletail".
Meanwhile, Mindy begins her research on Anthem from it's website which she discovers to be a highly, technological American security organization which acts as a first response against random, metahuman violence/events while enacting its Bellwether operatives to enforce regional control and stringently uphold American ideals and values.
Midnighter continues to fight Draggletail. He then learns that there is no way to safely remove the being from it's host, he defeats Draggletail by teleporting it into space through shift-door. Thereafter, news agencies focusing on the Midnighter's fight which had left collateral damages and leading some reporters to criticize the vigilante and metahumans generally for having no regards for normal human beings. Midnighter watches the transpiring news from Mindy's hideout.
