[[folder:Arc 30 (Speck)]]

The impromptu brain surgery Taylor requested from Panacea has taken her power to new heights, but at a steep cost. Armed with the ability to utterly control other people, but stripped of the power to explain her intentions or coordinate with allies, she'll have to overcome the available parahumans of several Earths, the alien intelligence behind Scion, and her own deteriorating mind and body in order to save humanity and survive the experience.

[[folder:Arc 29 (Venom)]]

Emboldened by the recruitment of the Endbringers, the gathered cape factions stage an assault on Scion, and meet with similar levels of casualties as previous efforts- this time with an added element of psychological attack as the golden man experiments with different methods of destruction.

In the aftermath, Taylor decides to investigate the sudden lack of communication from Doormaker and the rest of Cauldron. She and her strike team encounter several factions with their own connections to the power brokers as they make their way through the organization's main headquarters. Eventually, they discover the source of Cauldron's samples, and land what might be the first real hit against Scion before returning to base to share what they've learned. In the end, Taylor settles on a radical new direction for her efforts.

Closing interlude: Contessa finds herself in desperate straits.

[[folder:Arc 28 (Cockroaches)]]

Taylor wakes up in hospital, fully healed, but finds humanity in a much worse state than she left it. After the disaster at the oil rig, defending forces have more or less given up on defeating Scion, and new problems have arisen, ranging from infighting among refugee groups to the presence of multiple Endbringers.

Determined not to let humanity go out with a whimper, Taylor assembles a small squad of known assets, starting with the Undersiders and Defiant, to find and apply solutions wherever possible. In the process, however, they discover new assets as well- ones whose power serves to rally the remaining parahumans to try again.

Interlude: Doctor Mother uses the abilities of some Cauldron assets to investigate the status of various cape groups as they prepare for war- and discovers that one group has escaped her notice, with potentially deadly consequences.

[[folder:Arc 27 (Extinction)]]

As the world reels from Scion's initial attacks, Taylor returns to Brockton Bay with Rachel to help with search and rescue. The apparent futility of her best efforts over the past years nearly sends Taylor into total despair, but Tattletale intervenes at a key moment by inviting her to a council of war.

In the face of an enemy who's never been defeated, the assembled representatives of the world's cape factions agree to desperate measures, including the release of strategic parahuman criminals from the Birdcage and other prisons. Together they stage an initial offensive, and achieve some successes, but at a high price.

Closing interlude (two parts): Eidolon, desperate to accomplish something with his waning powers against a nigh-indestructible enemy, accepts the guidance of the Faerie Queen and makes a leap of faith.

The Slaughterhouse Nine are gone, but now Taylor is convinced that Coil has no intention of releasing Dinah. The Undersiders agree to back her up when she's ready to move against him. She even recruits a new ally in Parian, after donating money to cover treatment costs for the rogue's family members who were altered by Bonesaw. Her day turns around when Coil orders her, Trickster, and Genesis to deliver a message to the mayor. Intimidating a public official at dinner with his family would be uncomfortable enough, but Tattletale also gets a strong impression that Coil intends for Skitter to be killed in action. And then the Protectorate shows up...
