The Maddens, a family of supervillains on the run, moves to a Texas suburb to live a normal life. Amy wants to get their lives back but Jake embraces becoming a good person. To keep his sister in check, Jake pushes Amy to befriend their neighbor, Hartley. While fighting over it, they accidentally send Hartley to another dimension using a gadget their father made. As they work on a rescue plan, the family stalls Hartley's grandmother by asking Colby to use his newly-found powers to shapeshift into Hartley. While rescuing Hartley from the other dimension, Amy is forced to use her sonic powers, revealing that she is the supervillain Havoc. She explains that her villain family is on the run because she stood up to the League of Villains leader Onyx for passing her mother over for a promotion to Chief Commander which was given to Slither with Onyx also insulting their family. Hartley promises to keep their identity a secret.

Jake does not want to be involved at first but, in exchange for a better grade, he helps Vic frame Hartley for destroying the school statue. When the police get involved, the Maddens realize they've gone too far. Hartley reveals that she was on to them all along and assures them that they can trust her with their secret. Meanwhile, Eva and Colby go to Hartley's room to dig for dirt. To hide from Celia, Colby transforms into a sweater which Celia puts on and refuses to take off.

Colby feels left out because he never got to have a supervillain experience. Amy and Jake offer to train him with Jake posing as Captain Valor, but they end up fighting between themselves instead of training him. After accidentally breaking Colby's leg, they take him to a vet instead of a regular hospital to avoid exposing their powers. Colby transforms into a turtle, but the vet calls animal control on it because it is a rare breed. Jake and Amy are forced to work together to get Colby out. Meanwhile, when the dry Texas heat causes Eva's powers to malfunction, Vic creates a humidifier and an AC to regulate humidity and heat in the house but they end up malfunctioning, which almost exposes the family during a visit from a suspicious head of the neighborhood watch. The family officially welcomes Colby to their supervillain team by giving him a suit and a name "Flashform." Though Colby can't get his helmet off.

On Mother's Day, Eva forces her family to compete over getting her gifts where losers would be punished by spinning the Wheel of Torment. Amy enlists Hartley to help her to get an item from Milo who owns a huge collection of superhero memorabilia. Unable to afford what turns out to be Surge's belt that Surge lost fighting Monarch, Amy steals the belt while Hartley distracts Milo. Meanwhile, Vic and Jake raise money for their gifts which involves Jake riding a mechanical bull. However, Vic loses all the money after being defeated by Celia, the current record holder. Back at home, Eva tries unsuccessfully to remove Colby's helmet. When Milo catches up to Amy and Hartley, Eva helps them lie to Milo by passing off the lair as their own memorabilia. After Milo beats them in a challenge, Eva recognizes the belt as fake. Milo takes interest in Colby's helmet which he easily removes by unlocking a latch they hadn't noticed. Realizing the true meaning of Mother's Day, Eva decides not to punish her family for failed gifts.

Amy becomes determined to go to the ColossaCon superhero convention to get revenge on her nemesis, Starling, by dumping chrominite on her, which is Starling's weakness. She wants to prove herself because ever since Starling defeated her back in Centropolis, Havoc got turned into a meme and a joke. Despite Jake and Hartley's attempts to stop her, Amy bests them and goes to the convention. She dresses up as Starling and runs into Jake dressed as Captain Valor. When Jake interferes with her plans, Amy falls and is embarrassed to be saved by Starling. Jake goes to thank Starling because she once saved his life back in Centropolis, but to avoid exposing himself, he pretends that he is a fan who wants an autograph. Meanwhile, Colby uses his shapeshifting powers to scare people but he gets stuck as a towel. He scares Celia into lowering their rent by tricking her into believing that the house is haunted. Later, Jake looks at Starling's autograph only to realize that she wrote, "I know who you are."

Suspicious after the events of the last episode, Jake ropes Hartley into going to the scene of Starling's next commercial gig in order to keep her from reporting her discovery to the Hero League. Meanwhile, Eva and Vic find the diary that Celia left behind and find information that she once robbed a casino. At the same time, Colby has randomly shapeshifted from a towel to a sledgehammer which comes in handy when Vic and Eva figure that Celia hid some money in their wall. When Celia eventually finds the hole in the wall causing Vic and Eva to come clean, she mentions that the supposed theft was from her creative writing class. Eventually, Starling comes to remember Jake as Chaos back when she rescued him after he was knocked off the ledge.

7"A Little Havoc"Jody Margolin HahnChris Peterson & Bryan MooreJuly 8, 2022 (2022-07-08)107N/A

With Celia having some friends over, Hartley ropes Amy into being a positive influence for a neighborhood girl named Scarlett who has a reputation and likes Havoc. This causes Amy's way of being a "good influence" to Scarlett to not go the way that Hartley hopes which even goes far enough for Scarlett to sell Colby (who has randomly shapeshifted from a sledgehammer to a ventriloquist dummy) to another girl named Kylie after lying that she threw him away. Meanwhile, Vic finds that Jake and Eva's powers have weakened and works on an invention to get them back to full strength. Instead, it causes Jake and Eva to switch powers which pleases Eva at first. After she experiences the flaws, Eva agrees to have both powers put back into her and Jake. After Amy has a talk with her in a tree, Scarlett contacts Kylie's parents as Kylie gives back Colby in exchange for receiving Scarlett's Havoc doll. In the final scene, it is shown that Eva still has some of Jake's super-strength when she accidentally rips off the door causing Vic to take her and Jake back to his lab.

Guest star: Jaidyn Triplett as Scarlett

Absent: Malachi Barton as Colby / Flashform

Eva plans to volunteer herself at Valley View High School and has a trouble with the interview process at the hands of Donna Plank, the head of the cosmetic company FacciaGrande. One of the ways that Amy and Hartley try to help her involves using Colby who has randomly shapeshifted into a housefly. It seems to Eva that she has been in this slump since Onyx passed her over for a promotion. Meanwhile, Jake plans to go on a ride-along with Robert which disappoints Vic when he wanted to create mischief. To remedy this, Vic creates a bad clone of Jake that lasts for one day in order to do mischief with him. This backfires when Bad Jake accidentally gets taken on a ride-along with Robert as Vic and Jake go after him. Both plots collide at Valley View High School where Robert arrests Donna for assaulting a police officer and because FacciaGrande's face cream has allegedly scarred people while Jake defeats Bad Jake. Before Vic can go ahead with plans to vaporize Bad Jake, he and Jake find that he escaped and prepare themselves for when he returns.
