The Ray intercepts two bank robbers after they set off the alarm. He easily avoids their shots, knocks one robber out, and orders the other to surrender. The second man does, but smiles as a third robber emerges from hiding and shoots The Ray in the shoulder. The Ray turns into light and lets the bullets from both men pass through him so that they hit each other. As the police arrive, The Ray flies off.
On Earth-X, Vibe is in his computer lab searching for The Ray when the New Reichsmen arrive. Vibe grabs a flash drive from his computer and dives through a trapdoor to make his escape. He runs off through the sewers only to find Blitzkrieg waiting for him. He easily dodges Vibe's attacks and punches him, and then slams him into a wall. Vibe smiles and manages to blast Blitzkrieg at close range, and then runs off. Blitzkrieg attacks him at his full speed and then takes him back to the computer base.
Blitzkrieg checks the computers and determines that Vibe was running a multiversal trace. He determines that The Ray and Tornado's cortex are on Earth-1.
