Synopsis for "Revelations"
August 9th 1992
McLean, Virginia: After the explosion at Georgetown, Void teleports all of the WildC.A.T.s away from the battle-scene. However, a Psi-Op named John Tyrell at International Operations intercepts her warp-signal and the group are temporarily piggy-backed to the I/O facility. They flash briefly in front of Director John Lynch and his assistant Alison Turner before teleporting again onto the team's aircraft, MIRV. The energy feedback kills Psi-Op Tyrell. Lynch wants retribution and has the MIRV tracked. He sends out a team of Black Razor’s to investigate them.
The WildC.A.T.s go to one of Grifter's safe-houses in Quantico. They explain that the reason they grabbed Voodoo is because she can see Daemonites in their natural form – and furthermore, she is the only one with the power to exorcise them from their human hosts.
Grifter and Zealot know that the Cabal wishes to complete Project: Reunification – a scheme that will erect a permanent dimensional gateway between Earth and Daemon. A Daemonite spy has infiltrated the US government and has been working for four years to bring Project: Reunification to fruition. While watching the news reports, Voodoo recognizes Vice President Dan Quayle as the Daemonite spy.
Meanwhile, Helspont and Pike meet with the Daemonite M'koi in Norfolk Virginia. They are waiting for B'lial (Quayle) to provide them with an Orb that shall become the catalyst for Project: Reunification. Once the Orb’s shell is breached, they will be able to channel its energy to open the gateway.
Back in Quantico, Black Razor One, a team of covert stealth operators raid Grifter's safe-house. The WildC.A.T.s snap into action and fight against the agents. At first the Black Razors maintain the upper hand. That is until Voodoo turns surprisingly feral and begins ripping into them. Marlowe blasts one Razor's kneecap off while Grifter and Zealot trade sparring partners. As the dust begins to settle slightly, John Lynch enters the room. I/O and the WildC.A.T.s make a deal. Marlowe gives Lynch the name of the mole and Lynch gives Marlowe the location of Project: Reunification.
Later that same day, B'lial (Quayle) delivers the orb to the Reunification staging area at S.D.I. Astronomics. Helspont, Pike and the Coda assassin Hestia are there to receive him. The WildC.A.T.s sneak into S.D.I. and begin hunting for the orb. Their presence becomes known however and they fight up against the Cabal for the first time. A security trigger is breached sending out a signal to America's elite special service team – Youngblood. Youngblood arrives determined to protect the life of the man they believe to be the Vice President.
