  The same scene plays out in the last issue of Vel. 
He won't help Onion Lad because 1) he doesn't like him
and 2) he's in the middle of abducting his son to get
him treated for a genetic disorder.   

   Yes, Vel could have taken out Doctor ICBINB in
about five seconds.   Doing that in his own book would
have been fine.  Doing so in Onion Lad's book would
have disrupted the plot and dramatic tension.  Plus,
I'd have to reveal that Vel's dad was Jack Bauer and
his mom was Mary Sue.  Though if you think about it...
that'd be inbreeding.

  We know what happens to Vel from here on in.   His
other's wife gives birth.  He has his own son and
adopted daughter to raise.  His other's wife dies and
he's stuck being an Ambassador General and a father.
