Synopsis for "The Good Fight, Part One: Cain & Abel"
In the war-torn nation of Mali, Ratu Bennin, a ruthless warlord, sends child soldiers against the native Remori people. The lovely Lieutenant Adanna Abioye is the only one in President Bennin's cabinet who seems aware of the horrible cost of training young boys to rape and kill. Although Bennin disagrees with her compassion, her passion intrigues him, and he invites her to his bed. However, Bennin does not fully trust Abioye, and to test her loyalty he orders her travel with his soldiers and witness the ensuing massacre of the village of Yalaat. In private Abioye insists that she will not let the massacre happen, but she is informed via a hidden communicator that Bennin's troops are heading into an ambush.
As Bennin's jeeps near Yalaat, Abioye is concerned the Remori troops will not make it to the ambush in time. Although she is ordered by her communicator to remain patient, she refuses, and reveals her true identity as Thunder. With their cover blown the rest of the rest of the Outsiders arrive to back her up, making short work of Bennin's forces. After the fight Nightwing reprimands Thunder. Because she blew their cover, the world now knows that the Outsiders are still alive.
