Plot Summary

The Rushman family is in crisis. Frank Rushman was ambushed outside of his home and shot twice. He survived but was forced back underground to try and recover. Meanwhile Sarah's brother was picked up by the police and sent to Riker's on, surprisingly, overblown charges unrelated to any of his normal criminal activities. Sarah approached Kevin for help and X-Force began to investigate the Maggia connection to Sarah's brother's jumped up charges. Felicia and Gabriel, tailing Margaret Rushman, Sarah’s aunt, discover she is meeting other Maggia family members and is now apparently backed by the Karnelli Family. In order to get her brother free, Kevin, Sarah and Amanda infiltrate the Karnellis and get proof that the charges are fake. In the process of doing so, they discover that Margaret Rushman is being backed by Madame Masque and the Nefaria as well to force the Karnellis to allow her to assume more power in the family. They manage to get the materials to get her brother free, but he's forced to join his father in hiding.
