Richelieu was a successful Canadian skier. He hated Northstar because he cheated at the Olympics in the past with his super-powers. Richelieu spit into Northstar's face and told him that he is not welcome at the event because he was a disgrace for the sport. Richelieu then went on to ski for the benefit event in Calgary and Northstar saved him from an avalanche caused by Glissant's explosives and the hero got injured. Richelieu was surprised that Northstar saved him and told the reporter Ms. Montgomery that he didn't have to do this. At this moment Glissant took her as a hostage, but Richelieu now tried to be a hero as well and pushed her out of the way. He took a bullet from Glissant and was brought to the next hospital. Richelieu was now a good friend of Northstar because he owed the hero his life.

Ms. Montgomery was a Canadian TV reporter. She took interviews at a benefit event in Calgary. One of her interviewees was Northstar. She asked him about the Olympic title he had to give back. She wanted an answer from Northstar after Richelieu had denounced him. They continued their interview on the outside and then she watched the event. She arrived immediately at the scene after Northstar had saved Richelieu from an avalanche and tried to get an interview, but Glissant took her as a hostage. Richelieu pushed her to the ground and in the end she could report about the capture of the wanted terrorist Edoard Glissant and a new friendship between the former rivals Northstar and Richelieu.
