General Clarke sends his personal super group, Department K’s Weapon P.R.I.M.E - Tigerstryke, Yeti, Killspree and Double Trouble - to remove Northstar from the public eye.
Since resigning from Alpha Flight, Northstar has been living a life of luxury, and is currently in Ibiza, where he is harassed by the paparazzi. One of them mentions Jean-Paul terrorist past, so Jean-Paul warns him to stay away. Later that night, Jean-Paul is visited by an old friend, Raul, who gives him some advice, though Jean-Paul doesn’t particularly like it.
Weapon P.R.I.M.E. have tracked Northstar to his villa, by end up killing the wrong man. The reporter, Ritchie Ward, decides to do some snooping around Northstar’s villa at the same time - but he also meets an unrelated untimely demise.
The next morning, Heather Hudson contacts an unimpressed Jean-Paul, and after Jean-Paul reminds Heather he wants nothing to do with Department H or Alpha Flight, Heather tells him about Weapon P.R.I.M.E., and informs him that she intercepted a priority call that was for Department K, and she learned that a reporter is dead, and that he is the suspect for the murder.
Soon, Weapon P.R.I.M.E. break into Northstar’s villa, but Jean-Paul has left, and unexpectedly met up with Max, the only living relative of Jean-Paul’s foster father, Raymonde Belmonde. Max reveals to Northstar that he was recently threatened, and given a photo of Jean-Paul with a friend of his. Northstar sees his friend Mariel in the photo, with a target drawn around her. Jean-Paul realizes someone is trying to get to him by threatening his past. He reminisces about his childhood and Raymonde Belmonde, before telling Max to go to Department H, where Heather Hudson can organize some protection for him. Northstar is going to go to Paris, as that is where the photo of he and Mariel was taken, but before he can depart, he is attacked by Weapon P.R.I.M.E. Northstar manages to take them down temporarily, before realizing that he now has a new purpose and direction, so flies away at super speed, so that he can find out who is threatening his past.
Unbeknownst to Northstar however, in Paris, Arcade, the creator of Murderworld, is watching his every move.
