May 13: Four of the super-powered former Reach abductees (consisting of Virgil Hawkins, Tye Longshadow, Asami "Sam" Koizumi, and Eduardo "Ed" Dorado Jr.) escape from the League's Taos base after being put through endless metagene training exercises, much to the objection of Neutron. Nightwing sends Blue Beetle to track them down, and Jaime reveals his secret identity to them in order to get them on his side. Meanwhile, the Taos base comes under attack from Red Volcano, who has come to steal the AMAZO body parts. The runaways follow Blue Beetle back to Taos to rescue the endangered civilians ranging from Eduardo Dorado Sr., Dr. David Wilcox, Burton Thompson, and Neutron. They are unnerved by Jaime's apparent disregard for the lives of those caught in the crossfire. After the fight, they evade Jaime, who is caught up in talking to the press. May 14: On the roof of the Taos Pueblo, Jaime talks to Green Beetle about the battle. Black Beetle then arrives and compliments Green Beetle for reprogramming the Blue Beetle to completely take control over Jaime's body. Elsewhere, the runaways are confronted by Lex Luthor (who planned Red Volcano's attack and the sudden press arrival) and Mercy. Lex offers to bring the runaways under his wing.
