Dr. Doom, apparently Victor's father, lays down an ultimatum for Victor; Either he comes to the warehouse where he's holding her alone or he'll kill her. Meanwhile, Excelsior was tipped off to another warehouse where they've been given a ship by their mysterious benefactor.
At the warehouse where Doom is, Victor attempts to play him like a fool but Doom notices that Victor's mother's ropes have untied. He zaps Nico and the rest of the runaways appear before him. They eventually defeat Doom with a lasergun ripped out of the leapfrog only to learn that he's really just a robot. Of course, where there's robots, there's Ultron.
Ultron kills Victor's mother and tells him that Victor is his "greatest creation." Victor suddenly becomes under his control and is ordered to kill the runaways.
