In this session, Jackie (Dark Matter's secret identity) finds herself being asked out on a date by fellow supervillain-in-training Joseph Kane, aka Ronin. Later Kane calls to say he hasn't seen his roommate, another supervillain called The Face. Jackie, who has always had a bit of a soft spot for The Face, scours the campus, eventually finding him in conversation with two mysterious figures who are clearly bullying him into being part of a job.

After doing some research and talking to some other people, Jackie finds out that The Face is part of a Mexican gang of assassins called the Asesinos, who are led by a vampire called Stalker. She talks The Face and discovers he is supposed to be part of an assassination attempt on a visiting dignitary from the Middle East, along with two members of the Asesinos, Tombstone Kid and The Maine. The Face, however, has been forced into a life of crime since his childhood, and worries for his life should the job go badly.

Jackie decides to formalize her "fake" superhero identity, calling herself "Ultraviolet" and getting a new costume. She surveys the public arrival of the dignitary, drawing the attention of Captain Hollywood, who welcome the new "hero." The two of them spot Tombstone Kid and the Maine, and leap into action to foil the plan. Both heroes take a lot of damage from the Tombstone Kid (while The Maine turns out to be a complete failure).
In the end, Captain Hollywood suggests that Ultraviolet make herself scarce while he handles the authorities. Back at Waterford College The Face thanks Jackie for helping him out of a bad situation.
