While Mark and Amber are doing things that the Comics Authority Code would scream in horror from, the story takes the reader to Allen the Alien, whose origin is explained as being the product of government experimentation on unborn babies. Although he works under the guise of a Champion Evaluation Officer, he actually exists to fight people and report those who beat him back to the Coalition.

In the present, Allen reports his findings to the Coalition and goes out to dinner with his girlfriend, until he's interrupted by two Viltrumites demanding to know everything about the Viltrumite who was stationed on Earth. He, of course, is then beaten within an inch of his life. He survives, but the Coalition now knows that there's a mole within the council.
