In his absense the rest of the Gibson had become somewhat controversial and even dangerous when one became a criminal and robbed several banks and committed one murder.  The Gibson were all given the chance to remain in their forms and face constant battles with the public and the possiblity of Extermination if things got worse or the choice to change their forms into that of young adults and live in hiding for the rest of their lives, never to use their powers again.

Now rising from the Sea after 100 years of service to America, Hornet has found a very different world.  Unwelcomed back and forgotten by all but a few, Hornet is not greeted with Parades and Medals but told he must fall in line with the rest of the Gibson.  After only a week of hiding, Hornet refuses to change his form for that of a younger male and attacks two Police Officers.  With this he becomes a Terrorist and claims he will return Hawcross to what it once was and targets England as a Blasphemy and disgrace to his once great colony.

Claiming he will out all the Gibson in hiding and kill any of them who are unwilling to come to his aid.  With this Rex steps up and partners with his old ally Paulie Swift and new love intrest Abbi Worthington to defeat Hornet and his rising team of Gibson while trying to seek the aid of those who will not help him.
