Synopsis for "Shadows of Alarm"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Fantastic Four #334

Outside of the Four Freedoms Plaza a figure concealed by shadows lands on the roof and attaches a strange device that manages to infiltrate the headquarters of the Fantastic Four without setting off the alarm. Satisfied with his completed task, the intruder takes off as quickly as he arrived.

Down below, Ms. Marvel and Ben Grimm enter the private floors of the Fantastic Four and are shocked when they somehow manage to set off the security systems. Dodging an electrical blast the two are then quickly snatched up by mechanical shackles that incapacitate them until Reed arrives to shut the security system down. Reed explains that the systems needed to be upgraded and tested after the recent break-in at their headquarters. This puts Ben in a grumpy mood, and after telling Reed that they went out for groceries after their attempt to see the latest super-hero movie was sold out, Ben tries to storm off with a sense of dignity, but fails when he slips on a can he neglected to pick up and falls down again. At Sharon's suggestion, Reed retreats back to his lab before Ben can recover and berate him some more.

While outside, a strange figure arrives outside the Four Freedoms Plaza seeking to destroy the Fantastic Four. He quickly doffs his trenchcoat, sunglasses, and hat and begins scaling the walls of the building. Back inside, Sue and Sharon are helping Ben back to his feet. They talk about Sue and Reed's recent return to the team, but when Ben presses his luck with too much tough talk and wisecracks, Sharon literally carries him out of the room. While in the lab, Reed is working away, while Alicia's taking notes on the government's latest announcements regarding the newly proposed Super-Hero Registration Act, as read to her by her husband Johnny Storm. As they joke about Ben slipping on the can, the mystery intruder continues to scale up the wall. At that moment, Reed has completed his latest addition to the security in the building, a retinal scanner and scans his, Johnny and Alicia's eyes for the database. Suddenly the alarm goes off in the building and Reed and Johnny rush to investigate, with Johnny speeding past Sharon, Sue and Ben. He gets to the source of the intrusion first and sees that the security system's stun-beams have already dispatched the intruder. Reed recognizes the man as the Constrictor, a criminal for hire, from the files he keeps. Confused as to why this villain -- whom none of them ever encountered previously -- had tried to break into their headquarters, the Fantastic Four turn the Constrictor over to the authorities.

Regrouping in their headquarters, Sue reminds Reed that they have been asked to travel to Washington, D.C. to discuss the merits and detriments to the proposed super-hero registry before a special Congressional subcommittee. Discussing it among themselves, Alicia expresses her concern about super-heroes being forced to be drafted into military service, and Johnny voices another issue: that outlawing super-powers would lead to criminals have an advantage over heroes.

As they discuss things further, the Beetle arrives outside the Four Freedoms Plaza and doffs his disguise before flying toward the building. Back inside, the Fantastic Four come to the belief that this registry is not any different than the bigoted attempts to get mutants to register. Reed and Sue then go to put Franklin to bed before their big trip the next day. As they are doing so, the Beetle comes smashing into their headquarters, setting off the alarms again. Reed, Ben, Sharon and Johnny rush to the source of the intrusion only to find that the security systems have handled it, as the Beetle is confined in manacles. The group is once again confused by this villain's attack and likewise turn him over to the authorities as well.

The following morning the Fantastic Four are having breakfast and talking about the registration act again. Ben mentions how those with secret identities would not be happy with the idea and the potential compromise to their identities. Suddenly the alarm goes off yet again, and the same results: Another villain captured by Reed's security systems to turn over to the authorities, this time it is the Shocker. After the Shocker is taken off, the Fantastic Four prepare to leave for the the congressional hearing. As they take off in the new Fantasti-Car, they are unaware that the device planted in their headquarters has now latched itself onto their ship. The Fantastic Four just miss the arrival of Captain America and Thor as they arrive at the Four Freedoms Plaza to ask the Fantastic Four to let the Avengers operate out of their headquarters after Hydrobase was recently destroyed. When Cap inserts his security card and tries the code, it is rejected and the security systems activate. With no way to shut the system down, and not willing to wreck Reed's security devices, Thor and Captain America are forced to leave.

Meanwhile, all over New York City, disguised super-villains are suddenly leaving the city and heading for Washington, D.C. all intent on trying to destroy the Fantastic Four. As the Fantastic Four head towards Washington, Ben wonders if they'll have to explain the damage done by their clones earlier. Reed is convinced that he can convince the Senators of the validity of their claims. Ben sarcastically claims that this entire episode will be fun as he pulls them into Washington, with none aware of the danger that is following them.

Synopsis for "Death by Debate"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Fantastic Four #335

The Fantastic Four have arrived in Washington D.C. to speak to a special senate hearing to determine if there is a need to create a new Super-Powers Registration Act. They land at Virginia National Airport where they are met with a throng of reporters who want word on the Fantastic Four's position on the proposed Act. Quickly answering the questions from the press, the Fantastic Four quickly call a cab and are off. Unseen by all gathered, a strange device dislodges itself from the Fantasti-Car and flies after the heroes. When the Fantastic Four arrive at the Capitol Building it leads to much fanfare by both spectators and the press at the hearing. The members of the Senate presiding over the committee demand order be restored. Reed apologizes for the disruption their arrival has made, and the group goes to wait to be called before the committee. As they take their seats, the device that followed them all the way from New York silently attaches itself to the ceiling unseen.

The committee calls upon General Neddington who comments on how the Pentagon would approve of the proposed registration act as it would allow the military to draft super-heroes into their service in order to maintain a balance of military power between the United States and other nations. The Senators are not sold on this idea, with Congressman Paul Grant pointing out that when the draft was in place put a disproportionate amount of the poor and visible minorities into military service. Congressman Pat Mullet also points out that this also presses people to be drafted into make-work details such as garbage collection, and a waste of resources. After Neddington is dismissed, the Senators call upon Hamilton Nathanson, a representative of the National Rifle Association. Johnny explains to Sharon that the NRA is worried that requiring powers registration would set a precedent for gun registration.

As the American public tunes off C-SPAN for more entertaining television, Nathanson testifies that the NRA opposes superhero registration for the same reason why it opposes gun registration: As a violation of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. Requiring registration for heroes would make it more difficult for them to fight villains, and "if powers are outlawed, only outlaws will have powers". His position appeals to Ben, who is surprised that he would agree with the NRA. With Nathanson's testimony complete, the committee notes that the Avengers and the mutant group known as X-Factor are absent and unable to testify on the behalf of the super-hero community. Suddenly security interrupts the proceeding when reports of the mutant terrorist known as Apocalypse being sighted in the area are brought to the attention of the committee. As everyone rushes to safety, the members of the Fantastic Four rush to change into their costumes, but it all turns out to be a false alarm when Apocalypse merely flies over the Capital Building instead of attacking.

With the apparent crisis over the Fantastic Four return to the committee hearing. When they are about to be called to the stand, the strange device kicks in and suddenly a man in a trench coat, sunglasses and a hat reveals himself to be the cyborg villain known as Ramrod. When Ramrod tries to charge at the Fantastic Four, he trips over his own feet and knocks himself out when he lands head first onto the floor. Realizing that this is similar to the villain attacks they experienced in New York, Reed starts to see a pattern forming from it. With news of Ramrod's attack interrupting regular broadcasts, the people of America begin tuning into C-SPAN in the hopes of seeing more super-villains attacking the hearing. The hearing next calls the Superhuman Commission's Henry Peter Gyrich to the stand. Gyrich makes a distinction between the proposed Super-Human Registration act and defending the previous Mutant Registration Act, pointing out that mutants are not humans, and therefore not guaranteed the same rights as normal humans. He points out that while super-humans are a minority, the registration of their powers is necessary to benefit the many. From their seats, Johnny and Ben are unimpressed with Gyrich due to his previous attempts to run down the Avengers and his involvement in the anti-mutant Project: Wideawake. However, Gyrich takes a turn, pointing out that the Super-Human Registration Act would be considered unconstitutional to some, but points out the Draft before it only made military service required by men and not women, yet it still exists. Although Gyrich makes a compelling case, the committee thinks that Gyrich was using the opportunity to put on a sales pitch in the hopes of being put in charge of such a law if it should be passed.

Finally the Fantastic Four are called to the stand, but the Senators do not recognize Ben Grimm, prompting Reed to explain that he recently lost his powers. Before they can begin their testimony, the Fantastic Four are suddenly attacked by both Plantman and the Quill, who not only attack at the same time, but are spouting the same dialogue. When they charge at the Fantastic Four, they run into each other, knocking themselves down long enough to be arrested. In light of the phony Fantastic Four clones running amok in New York recently, the Senate asks Reed to provide documentation that proves that his positions against the Super-Powers Act are valid. Reed then has the court security bring in piles of documentation that support his position. Reed then goes through his lengthy files explaining of all the various times the Fantastic Four were able to help mankind from dangers without the need for government registration. Eventually the Senators put a stop to the reading of the reports to ask questions to the other members of the Fantastic Four.

Sue tells them of how her son is a mutant and how registration will impact his life if passed into law. Johnny also sarcastically points out how difficult it would be to make foes like Doctor Doom and Annihilus register their super-powers. Ben also makes the point of how gun control doesn't stop criminals from obtaining and using guns in their crimes, and how the needless bureaucracy of such an act could waste precious time verifying credentials while people are in danger.

Suddenly their testimony is interrupted yet again, this time by the Flying Tiger who is easily knocked out by Sharon. She points out that four others in the room are wearing trench coats, hats, and dark glasses. Upon this discovery, the device in the room activates all the super-villains. Vanisher, Thunderball, the Eel, and Mad Dog reveal themselves and all attack at the same time. These villains are also easily incapacitated by the heroes. As the commotion begins to die down, the device then forces one of the guards to pull a gun on Reed. Ben manages to push Reed over, and at that moment Sue notices the device that has been controlling the villains the whole time. Johnny blasts it off the ceiling and Reed tries to deactivate it. Suddenly the hearing is interrupted by Congressman James Pertierra, who accuses the Fantastic Four of creating the device to bend the hearing to their own needs.

Synopsis for "Dark Congress!"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Fantastic Four #336

Congressman James Pertierra has just accused Reed Richards of creating the device that has caused a number of super-villains to attack the Fantastic Four during the Senate committee to determine if the Super-Powers Registration Act should be put into law in order to win the government to their side. Televised on live television, the press begins a quick poll with the average American to get their opinions. With Pertierra joining the committee, Reed is asked to answer the allegations that have been made. Reed explains that if he had designed the device that has caused so much chaos, he would have made it completely undetectable.

Reed is given a chance to speak again and he tells the hearing that the super-hero community works for the greater good. He also points out the danger of government regulation, referring them to moments earlier when Flying Tiger attacked the hearing. He stated that while the congressmen were mad that Reed didn't do anything, he pointed out how Ms. Marvel was the best suited to deal with that foe and did so accordingly. To punctuate his point about heroes having the best skills to deal with the job than the government, he points to how Apocalypse also flew over the Capitol Building and that had he actually planned to attack the Fantastic Four could have formulated a plan to deal with him based on their years of experience working together.

Suddenly the hearing is interrupted when one of the guards informs the Senators that a number of individuals in trench coats and dark glasses were seen heading towards the Capital. Recalling how all the villains who attacked previously wore similar attire, everyone suddenly wonders if the device Reed found has been properly deactivated or not. Ben, Johnny and Sharon decide to deal with the matter and tell Reed and Sue to stay and continue their testimony. Sue suddenly whispers to her husband her suspicions that the device might not just be influencing super-villains but the Senators as well. This gets Reed thinking, and while the others deal with the villains outside, Sue address the committee with her thoughts. She once again likens super-powers with the Constitutional right to bare arms and that super-powers, like weapons, are a means of protecting people. That those who would use their powers to break the law must not have advantage over those who do not. Reed also points out how government interference impeded the work of super-heroes: How the military has never been able to capture the Hulk, or how Henry Gyrich's time as a government liaison to the Avengers only impeded the groups ability to function.

As Reed's argument comes to a close, the device suddenly comes to life and bombards everyone in the room. Suddenly the spectators and the Senators become violent and try to attack Reed and Sue. As they try to contain the mob, Reed grabs the device and resists its electronic shocks in order to shut it down and restore order. As the people return to normal with no memory of their attack, Ben and the others re-enter the courtroom to inform Reed that the villains have all been dealt with. Reed then ushers the Senators outside to see the effectiveness of unrestrained super-heroes where the police are taking away the Armadillo, Stilt-Man, the Orca, the Owl, Whirlwind, and the Man-Ape. Going back into the courtroom, Reed makes his final statement: comparing the Super-Powers Registration Act to the Mutant Registration Act. Pointing out how can someone like Spider-Man be classified, is he a super-human, or a mutant? He also asks what the definition of someone who is extraordinary from a normal human pointing out that anyone in the courtroom outside of the Fantastic Four could meet that classification. Reed then pulls out a device to see if the Senators would register for the potential for super-powers. Reed's device indicates that they, and the security guard on hand could all potentially have super-powers. Finally, Reed points out that they could potentially be invading people's privacy and limiting their freedoms based on government classifications. With his point punctuated, Reed rests his case and the Senate decides against implementing the Super-Powers Registration Act.

As they are leaving, Ben remarks how Reed had his scanner turned up to maximum sensitivity to prove his point. Reed quips that they can't be too careful, and laughs about the idea of putting the idea that members of the Senate could be super-heroes. The Fantastic Four then allow Franklin to go to his much anticipated trip to the Smithsonian with Ms. Marvel while the rest of the team return home to the Four Freedoms Plaza. There, Reed examines the device and learns the origins of its components, tracking them to a technology company that went out of business a few months earlier. The Fantastic Four decide to go and investigate, but before they leave Ben puts on his old Thing exoskeleton in order to be a part of any potential battles. The group goes crashing into the abandoned warehouse where they find what appears to be their old foe Doctor Doom. Doom explains that he is part of a cabal of super-villains who masterminded a conspiracy to try and destroy their enemies by pitting them against foes they never faced before. When Johnny suddenly attacks "Doom", they quickly realize that it is actually one of his Doombots instead.

With the Doombot's destruction, it releases the Super-Adaptoid, which quickly begins to adapt the Fantastic Four's powers. However before the android can attack, the Thing manages to knock it down with a single punch. As they are preparing to leave they are suddenly confronted by both Hydro-Man and the Water Wizard. However instead of attacking the Fantastic Four, the two begin arguing with each other over who has the better control over water and a fight breaks out between the two of them. Ben remarks how this is going to be an amusing fight, but quickly slips on a puddle of water and come crashing down, much to the amusement of his teammates.

Synopsis for "Still Life"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Incredible Hulk #363

The Grey Gargoyle is visited by Doctor Doom, one of the prime movers in a super-villain conspiracy to eliminate their foes by pairing them against villains they are unaccustomed to fighting. Seeing the Gargoyle's powers first hand, Doctor Doom believes that he will be suitable for their plans. Doom explains to the Gargoyle that the Hulk is considered a wild card in the game that they are playing and that he must be temporarily taken out of the picture and if he is turned into stone, he can be kept under watch, preventing him from siding with the heroes and hopefully conscripted into their Acts of Vengeance conspiracy. Reverting to his civilian guise of Paul Duval, the Gray Gargoyle takes a flight to Nevada in his search for the Hulk. He thinks about the money he will make and how it will benefit his artwork. Suddenly, his gamma ray detector begins going off, alerting him that the Hulk is somewhere in the vicinity. His device gets the attention of the airline security officer sitting next to him. The forces Duval to explain what he is carrying and what he plans to use it for. While the security officer looks at his device, Paul uses his powers to turn the man into stone.

Not fall away, the Hulk is leaping through the sky near Paul Duval's plane when suddenly the sun begins to rise. This causes his reversion into Bruce Banner which could potentially be fatal while he's still high in the air. The Hulk resists the transformation as best he can when he suddenly hits the ground. Coming out of the carter is a sore, but otherwise alive, Bruce Banner. As luck would have it, the Hulk landed him not far away from the house he is now renting and heads back home. Meanwhile, Paul Duval's plane lands and he disembarks from the aircraft. It's not until he has rented a car and begun his hunt for the Hulk do the airplane staff find the petrified security official.

The following morning, Bruce is working his janitorial job at the Yucca Flats Nuclear Research Center. There he is once again approached by Doctor Philip Sterns, who asks if Bruce can go over at some of his equations. Bruce gives himself up again by finding the errors in the equations. Catching himself, he tries to brush off his knowledge again, but the display confirms to Philip that he is really Bruce Banner. However, instead of ratting Bruce out, Sterns explains that he is a great admirer of his work and if Bruce agrees to help Philip along on his own work, he will help Bruce find a cure for his transformations into the Hulk. When Sterns explains that he won't blackmail Bruce into going into this agreement convinces Bruce that Philips actually wants to help and the two agree to work together. At lunch the two spend time together talking about their theories on how the gamma radiation realigned his own DNA. This causes Bruce to be concerned about children, but Sterns tells him to focus on himself instead of children, unaware that Bruce is thinking about his own child.

All the while, Paul Duval has been tracking Bruce Banner all day, finally setting up a trap for him outside of the Yucca Flats facility. When Bruce comes driving by, Duval places a flasher on the top of his car and pretends to be a police officer stopping Bruce for speeding. This allows Duval to easily get close enough to Banner and change him into stone. With Bruce his at his mercy, Duval tosses him into the back seat and drives off. However, as the sun begins to set, Bruce still changes into the Hulk and much to Duval's horror is slowly regaining his ability to move, even though he is turned into stone. Turning himself into the Gray Gargoyle, Duval stops at a nearby construction site and grabs a jackhammer. Hoping he can smash the Hulk to pieces before he can regain his mobility, the Gargoyle tries to pummel the Hulk, but he is too quick.

During the fight, the Gargoyle attempts to find different ways to crush the Hulk, but none of them work. The Hulk proves far too invulnerable and debuffs all the attacks. Learning that Duval changes people into stone with his hand, the Hulk quickly disarms him -- literally -- by twisting the Gray Gargoyle's arm around backwards and breaking his fingers. He then sends the villain off to find a way to fix his arms before the hour elapses and the Gargoyle changes back to human form.
