Synopsis for "The Legacy of Bad Ned"

Bobby Wright is on his way to Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. and Power Man and Iron Fist are seeing him off, Luke with unbridled frustration which results in a brief scuffle with Captain Hero, and Danny with much more sympathy for the boy. Luke leaves the airport and grabs a taxi and is soon joined by a young girl that recognizes him. He tries to ignore her but is ultimately pulled into a confrontation with various members of law enforcement that are trying to apprehend the girl and Cage is ultimately arrested.

Cage is taken before a man named Gordy who claims to be part of the government organization S.M.I.L.E.. Gordy explains to Cage that the girl is Sally McRae and is the daughter of a woman who works at the Pentagon and had hidden computer security access codes in Sally's bank book. He also explains that the other agents Cage encountered were actually members of a mercenary espionage agency called Control 7 and that Cage was obligated to retrieve her or Gordy would ensure trouble regarding the Heroes for Hire's business practices.

Meanwhile, in his quest to obtain security clearance to get into Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. to visit Bobby, Danny comes up with an idea that takes him to Harlem where he runs across Falcon helping to break up a fight between local kids and a gang. Danny beseeches Sam to help him get into Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. because of his prior dealings with the S.H.I.E.L.D. group that preceded it.

Cage finds Sally McRae at the airport surprised that she slipped captivity by Control 7 and is soon encountered by operatives from the organization who are able to pierce his skin with their guns. Cage becomes irate and tosses the agents through a window before scrambling to find Sally, ultimately having to follow her to Chicago where she seeks to meet her hero "Bad" Ned Jackson, a football player for the Chicago pro team. She succeeds in finding Jackson at the stadium after his team loses their playoff game and he immediately takes a liking to her and takes her to dinner, much to Luke's surprise.

At the restaurant, Cage seeks to check in with Danny at Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. and despite his continuous perturbance at troublesome kids decides to ask how Bobby is doing.
