Synopsis for "Say Farewell to Wall Street"
Team Achilles teleports to Wall Street and is greeted with gunfire from Citizen Soldier's men. With the teamwork of Charles Pickney and Flint, they are able to eliminate their attackers. However, one of the attackers, who is dead, rises up and fires a rocket on them. Fortunately, Flint caught it and dispose it. She then neutralize the shooter by throwing a large piece of concrete at him. Realizing that Citizen Soldier has a superhuman who can manipulate the dead, Santini orders his team to be ready and enters the New York Stock Exchange.
Upon arriving inside, Team Achilles finds every stockbroker inside already dead and posed as they were before on the riot on television. They encounter Citizen Soldier himself. Santini has his team flank around Citizen Soldier and demands the terrorist why he is doing this. Citizen Soldier explains that he is leading a rebellion against what deemed as a corrupted and tyrannical American government, with politically destroying President Patrick Kent's credibility and disrupting the American economy.
Citizen Soldier then notice Santini trying to shut down and repair the Exchange, and throws his shield at him. This prompt Stormwatch to open fire on him, but Citizen Soldier proves to be more formidable and effortlessly subdue nearly every Stormwatch member, as Citizen Soldier knows very well of them including their names. Santini then realizes that Citizen Soldier's presence in Wall Street is nothing but a mere distraction. Citizen Soldier concur, revealing that his intended target was JP Morgan Chase and the Bank of New York and his men have already destroyed the banks and its records, allowing the loss of banking services to cause serious damage on America's economy. Thus having the American people to lose their faith on their nation's financial institution.
Santini ask again from Citizen Soldier for his purpose. Citizen Soldier clarifies that he is destroying the very American government that had become subversive in corruption, such as allowing a former Klansman to run America. He even admits that he himself and Santini are more alike than the latter could ever admit, and would have offer Santini to join his cause if he hadn't despised post-humans. Defeated, Santini calls Stormwatch to retreat.
Just as Stormwatch left, Citizen Soldier contacts his follower, Jumpmaster, in teleporting himself and his followers back to their headquarters. Shortly after this, Team Achilles returns. The team had faked their retreat and secretly scanned and videotaped Citizen Soldier, capturing his teleportation signatures, during his spiel with Santini. This will allow Tefibi to pinpoint where Citizen Soldier and his people would strike next in the future.
