Irony awakes with Derek in a cell. Confused as to why they are there, they meet Eric Cowell, another evolved human, and discover that the prison in which they are is for "specials" only. The prison's boss, Consuela Hammock, gives a speech which explains the situation further. Irony plans an escape but is caught, and after a firefight, is knocked out by an explosion. He and Derek awake in solitary confinement, where he meets Karl and Leckie, as well as some other inmates. Together, they escape the prison and then split up. Irony, Derek, and Leckie decide to head back to the warehouse, and on the way, they meet Tyler, an evolved human who can emit EMPs. Back at the warehouse, Irony helps a handful of prison escapees find refuge, unaware that Shark is watching him. A mysterious woman shows up and informs Irony and the gang about an incoming batch of drugs that they need to stop. At the docks, Irony and his friends battle Consuela, a defected Officer Bonkin, and Shark's gang, eventually coming out victorious.
Irony has the ability of ability diminishment, he can weaken others abilities. He has been shown to take the 'life force' of people and can reduce energy, as he has shown to have done once. He can also negate the effects of abilities by absorbing the 'energy' when it touches him, creating somewhat of an ability force field.
