Synopsis for "The Birth of a Nation"
Max and Senator Joe fight the Spirit of Lenin and Stalingrad respectively, while Prof. Korovin is shielded in Pravda's forcefield from the attacks. Korovin admits to Pravda that ever since creating her and her ilk, he bears some guilt of stripping away their previous life of being normal people.
Mike Hinks and Stella Blake are still imprisoned and helpless to do anything. McCoy consults with Captain Tyler over a post-conflict plan for America.
Joe defeats and kills Stalingrad and is then confronted by Pravda, after being convinced by Korovin to enter into the battle. Max has the edge against the Spirit until a still surviving Revolution attacks Max.
A wounded Chivers releases and help Hinks and Blake escape as he overheard what McCoy had plan for America, including eliminating anyone who voices against their intentions. Chivers is fatally shot through the throat during the escape and on his dying breath tells Blake in stopping McCoy and his collaborators.
Pravda fight off and kills Joe, but is deeply weaken from using her powers. Max resists against Revolution's flames and decapitates her. With the tide turning against them by Max, Korovin, Pravda and the Spirit escape to somewhere "the kind of place party leaders used to take their mistresses."
Six months later. The President has taken a permanent seat in his government as he, (possibly driven by McCoy), had taken extreme measures in ensuring that supposedly more superhumans in both the Middle East and Russia are sought and destroyed. That is until democratic freedoms and liberty are returned to the American people. The nation is now a seemingly totalitarian state.
Somewhere, Hinks and Blake address a meeting at a deserted church with other like-minded Americans concerning the situation of their nation. Hinks and Blake tell them that there are still many people who are against their government and that they must keep fighting in order to destroy the government's tyranny. One of the guards inside sighted Max coming towards them. Blake and Hinks successfully escape. As they flee, Hinks tells Blake that he is opportunistic as the current state of America is similar to that of how the nation came to be. Hoping that the current outcomes would not repeat the same mistakes.
