Courtney also almost gets into a fight over a girl who is getting bullied. She learns that Cameron was the one who removed the graffitti. There seems to a spark of interest at his action, which may cause big problems as later it is revealed Cameron is revealed to be Icicle’s son.
Meanwhile, Jordan Mankent has gone to the hospital and meets up with The Wizard to discuss Brainwave’s plan. Icicle expresses how Brainwave was never a team player and that he himself will deal with Star Girl.

Courtney hears about the rest of the team and decides to recruit a team for herself as well. Cameron goes home where we see he is Icicle’s son.
We start off with a flashback, this time 4 months ago, where a contrasted happy Yolanda is sending a sexy picture to her boyfriend.

Courtney closes herself off to Pat but decides to open up to Yolanda at school. Courtney tells Yolanda she was the one who blew up Henry’s car. Yolanda is reluctant at first but then tries on the Wildcat suit. The suit does not fit until Yolanda puts the helmet on and then the suit reshapes to her bodies configurations.
Icicle still on his nefarious plan path goes down to the basement of Injustice Society and lets the doctor know the plan is still on. The doctor is instructed to build a machine for Project New America and offers The Wizard’s body to do testing on.
Courtney and Yolanda decide to determine if Injustice Society is near Brainwave at the hospital.

Realizing something is strange they head up, however unbeknownst to them Beth overhears them and sees them go, realizing there is something more. Yolanda decides not to do more. She goes home instead to confront her family on the trauma over their treatment of her. They do not listen. This prompts Yolanda to don the mission of Wildcat.
Meanwhile Denise, The Wizard’s wife, decides to leave town. She meets up with Pat to let him know there is something diabolical and more going on in the town. Later when Pat goes to the scrapyard for parts, he sees Denise’s black cat. Further investigation leads to seeing her car destroyed with no traces of her.

In the modern day Rick is still with “Uncle Matt” however their relationship is not so good. Uncle Matt is bitter at having Rick and treats him as such. Simultaneously Courntey is also waking up to go to school. Pat shows her a newspaper that makes them question if all the members of the Injustice Society are in Blue Valley. Courntey takes an hourglass with her to school.
At school, Courtney and Yolanda discuss their plans for the Injustice Society as Beth eavesdrops again. Pat picks Courtney up from school. Their car breaks down, but Rick is there to help.
