Synopsis for "March or Die!"
Outside of the building where the rest of Team Achilles is fighting, Pickney and Golocvin are sifting through the wreckage of the ship they downed when they hear the "SHABOOM" of a powerful SPB landing nearby.
The badly dressed superhero that appeared at the end of the last issue appears in the UN building with the fighters of Team Achilles while they're engaged in combat with the super powered terrorists. Jukko tells the young hero to leave before he gets someone hurt, but the hero just laughs and says that's exactly what he came to do. The "hero" jumps into the fight in a haphazard way that leaves members of both Team Achilles and the terrorists injured. As Jukko is killing a terrorist the hero causes more trouble and refuses to help the hostages. Jukko talks to Santini over comms and tells him about the "hero" that has butted in. The "hero" starts a fight with one of the terrorists with no face and ends up hurting two members of Team Achilles and letting him escape.
With the terrorists escaped, Team Achilles turns to the wounded and tries to clean things up. One of their member, Luis Cisco, is hurt, but he'll live. Santini goes to talk to the idiot hero and finds out his name is Giant. Giant starts having an attitude and Santini scares him by telling him that as the new Weatherman he knows everything about Giant. He knows his powers, who made him, and even his secret identity. He also threatens to kill Giant via a shut off switch if he doesn't leave and promise never to return. Giant leaves and after being questioned by one of his agents Santini reveals that he doesn't really have a shut off switch.
Santini starts pieces things together with Tefibi's discovery and figures out that Ivana Baiul was behind the terrorist attack. He starts interrogating the few surviving terrorists as to her location when he gets teleported away. He tells Tefibi to trace his location and send back up right before he totally disappears. Santini finds himself staring at the UN "Special" Security Council, the true power holders of the United Nations. One of the men sitting in the shadows tell him that Team Achilles now works for them or be killed. He revealed that they financed the team and so Santini belongs to them. Santini obviously has problems with this and decides to let some information slip to scare them, letting them know that he knows they're working with Ivana Baiul. One of them says they should kill him but another calms her down saying that Santini is helpless. Santini informs him that that is not the case as he planned this out of eliminating the corrupted council. Suddenly Jukko and Jaeger Weiss come in through a Project Entry doorway. Shocked, the official say that Santini can't kill them, but he does it anyway as their deaths will be covered over as being caused by the super powered terrorists that they hired. After this Santini state that they just have to find Ivana Baiul.
