He asks her to teach him to become a mercenary, so she calls in some help by the name of Taskmaster. He begins teaching him by utilizing the techniques of superheroes and villains. After beating Alex senseless for a while, she also calls in Outlaw to help with his marksmanship... which doesn't need any help at all. After finally passing his final test, he gets his first merc gig; He gets to find a bunch of escaped animals. And he doesn't even get paid, he gets the deed to a theme park instead.
Meanwhile, Higashi Kenichi attempts to cope with the power vaccum in the Japanese mafia. They plot against him, but he quashes any insurrection by killing one of the men who intend to usurp his position.
