Synopsis for "The Super Patriot"
Citizen Soldier and his men has taken over the Capitol Building. Santini argues with Giant in keeping himself and the Homeland Security Squadron from interfering, given that Santini is distrustful of them of possibly causing more civilian casualties (especially Giant's previous actions at the United Nations). In the end, Santini relents to the Squadron's intervention.
Giant and Santini meet with Jukko and Jaeger at the site of the Capitol. Jukko tells Santini that there is a looping feedback on the reanimated corpses of Citizen Soldier's men which negates his pain-absorption, and believes that he can find the one who is reanimating the soldiers by concentrating on the variances in incoming pain signals from the corpses. Giant has his Squadron members, Hexebus and Ripslashbloodclawmaimblade, go with Jukko and Jaeger to breach the Capitol.
Meanwhile, Citizen Soldiers enters the office of Senator Sonny Terns and confronts the senator.
