Synopsis for "After the End of the World - Part One"
The Earth is in ruins after the battle between The High and his clones. Los Angeles is practically destroyed and survivors scavenge for supplies. But some of the surviving S.P.B.'s (Super-Powered Being) have decided to feast on some of the surviving humans. A small group of humans are confronted by these S.P.B.'s but several members of the Wildcats: Grifter, Zealot and Ladytron show up and stop them. They then take the refugees back to the Halo Building which still seems to be functioning quite well under the circumstances.
The Wildcats as a whole debate how to deal with the growing population of refugees in the building and how to best utilize the supply of Halo batteries that are available. Suddenly, Majestic attacks and easily takes out most of the Wildcats; claiming to be looking for something. Nemesis and Zealot stand against him with only Nemesis' swords (the only weapons that can cut Majestic) to defend themselves.

John Lynch and his fellow I.O. operatives are fending off an assault on I.O headquarters from superhumans that were imprisoned fifty years ago by Miles Craven, who they want dead, in the wake of Number of the Beast. One of the agents, Gregson, follows protocol and secures Lynch in a bunker (much to his objection). Time passes and the bunker opens to reveal the destruction of the world to Lynch.
