Kirt McMurray exposed his secret identity as the Wire when he had to rescue his son and another child from a rampaging elephant at the Freedom Zoo. He was then able to use his powers to rescue other patrons trapped in the sky trolly. By focusing his energy he was able to generate light for the city, providing hope, and aiding in rescue efforts throughout Freedom City while he searched for his pregnant and ailing wife. He eventually found his mother-in-law who informed him that his wife was taken by a doctor to a hospital that would have electricity because she needed an emergency MRI, or the unborn baby might perish. Unfortunately, his mother-in-law didn’t know what hospital or how they were going to get there.
Ironhide, Neutrino, and Mr. Hendricks were attending a charitable event at the Millennium Club. Although many people were killed or injured, they were able to use their power, wits, and luck to evacuate the majority of the guests.

The heroes then regrouped near the demolished FBI office where Police Commissioner Barbara Kane has assumed authority and is organizing comminication and the rescue efforts.
