Synopsis for "Wish upon a Star"

War Machine flies to the Starcore Satellite and is surprised that it is already completed. He meets Skye, who explains that it was not an accident that he found the Eidolon Warwear. Dirge, an ally of Kang, appears to protect the satellite from War Machine.

A fight begins and Skye is mortally wounded. War Machine manages to destroy Dirge's Warwear, which explodes. The explosion kills Dirge and destroyed the space station. War Machine escapes with the wounded Skye, but she dies in his arms.
