In that alternate possibility, alone and without Taylor, James ends up [[spoiler: single-handedly disabling and capturing each and every hero in Brockton Bay while scaring the villains badly enough to keep away while he does it to save Taylor.]] However, in the omake he doesn't avert GoodIsDumb for forgetting that he could've done it with less violence.
