Docs said Campbell was burned pretty bad, but he'll live. Said he didn't want surgery. I guess his mutant has skills.

Throughout the SeriesEdit

Season 1Edit


Aide stays quiet as Campbell and Turner negotiate

In got your siX, Aide accompanies Dr. Campbell to the Sentinel Services Regional Headquarters for his meeting with Agent Turner. Campbell had reached out to some friends on Capitol Hill to get Turner reinstated and reassured them that he is committed to the cause. But before they can move forward, Campbell wants access to Andy and Lauren Strucker's files.

The next day, back at Sentinel Services Regional Headquarters, Agent Turner holds a conference to inform everyone that the mutants who hit the roadblock are the same mutants from the cell that broke into the Baton Rouge federal building to steal vital, classified information. Agent Turner wants surveillance on all cellphones within a 50-mile radius of the roadblock site. They're to also monitor target names, keywords, repeated phrases, anything that sounds like coded communication.

In eXtreme measures, Aide and Dr. Campbell meet with Agent Turner in the conference room of the regional headquarters to discuss their surveillance program. While Sentinel Services has been monitoring every phone call in the region, the Mutant Underground is discreet in their workings. This only reinforces Dr. Campbell's conviction to take a more direct approach. To date, they've employed their mutant assets cautiously, but now it's time to be more effective by placing their assets in the field. As a trial run, Dr. Campbell has placed several mutant assets in local prisons as part of an experimental program. They remained undetected until activation. And when they were activated, they were quite effective.


Aide causes the DOJ official to have a stroke

Later that day, everyone is called in by an official of the Department of Justice. She wants to make sure there is no confusion from where they stand. Their warrantless surveillance has strayed well outside of legal bounds. So they cannot deploy mutant assets against suspects. Turner informs her that they're pursuing terrorists. Although, she corrects him in saying that they're pursing people they suspect of terrorism. She reminds him that before anything else, they are American citizens. However, Agent Turner begs to differ.He questions why they should enjoy the rights of American citizens when they're determined not to act like American citizens. She replies that this argument was tried on Catholics in the 1950s, on Muslims in the 2000s, and the Supreme Court shut it down every time. So she's requesting a court order. Before she can continue, Dr. Campbell signals Aide, who causes the official have a stroke though Campbell then comes to her aid to play the hero.

The following day, Aide, Dr. Campbell and Agent Turner have begun their undercover program involving sending their mutant assets into the field. Turner questions the success rate of their plan since they had been trying to send in spies for years. Rather than spies, Campbell thinks of them as weapons. All they have to do is get them inside. The "Hounds" will take it from there. Turner, Campbell and Aide enter a secured room to find at least a dozen Hounds waiting for command.
