M-21 transforms his hands in order to take his chances against Shark who is taken aback along with the rest of DA-5, that a low ranking agent had this kind of skill. M-21 attacks fast knowing that his transformation won't last long. Shark, unable to tolerate the humiliation, attacks to kill with Krantz's order. M-21 takes a direct hit to protect the children as they would've been killed had he evaded the blow. Shark doesn't pause and attacks like a maniac while M-21 feels his strength fading away. The transformation reaches its limit and he turns to normal. Just then Shark aims another fatal blow. With strong resolution to shield the children, M-21 faces it head on and collapses, bleeding profusely. This time Regis gets up and M-21 complaints that Regis has taken too long as he had removed the handcuffs a while ago and was buying time for him to recover. Regis apologises to M-21 for being slow at recovering and takes over the battle from there on.
