Graphic Novel:From the Files of Primatech, Part 4

After absorbing the energy from TMI's nuclear meltdown, Mindy releases the energy causing a blizzard for thousands of miles. In the hospital, Alfred Washburn informs Mindy of the storm, and says that his wife trekked through it to find Teddy. He describes the snow to Mindy, explaining that it came out of nowhere and without warning.

At the Deveaux building, some of the Company founders discuss the unbelievable blizzard. Angela notes that the predicted temperature was to be unseasonably warm and sunny. However, the actual weather was a blizzard with hurricane winds that were over 110 miles per hour in some places. Angela says that the amount of snow that fell, from Philadelphia to Boston, was unprecedented. She says that there was millions of dollars of damage, thousands of people trapped and injured, and hundreds of people dead.
