As Caleb and his remaining confidants await to plead his case before the world's governments as to why superheroism should not be outlawed, unbeknownst to all of them, that during Caleb and Samuels' confrontation, an artificially created superpowered individual codenamed “Alo”, who was conceived using the stolen DNA samples of the all superheroes had died at Samuels' hands in an attempt to create an army of superpowered soldiers under his command, had been broken out and is out in the open scared and confused as to who she is and what she is caple of doing, eventually catching the attention of an elite super-secret technologically advanced terrorist group calling themselves “The Eclipse” who have manipulated her into becoming their weapon for carrying out their apocalyptic schemes. Eventually, Caleb catches wind of this and breaks out of his federal incarceration to pursue the Eclipse and Alo and put a stop to their plans all the while being hunted by every law enforcement organization in the world and also coming into the possession of and trying to decipher a cryptic final message from Robert Richter that may hold the key to completing his training as well as help him realize what it truly means to be a superhero.
