Synopsis for "Things Aren't Always What They Seem"
Walter Langkowski and a handful of other researchers analyze a bizarre radiation pattern being picked up at an isolated research station in the snowy Rockies. Activating a modified satellite dish teleports in the unconscious body of who appears to be Ben Grimm, The Thing. Sasquatch decides to reveal his secret identity to the other researchers in order to carry the heavy superhero into the infirmary. Not long after, a commotion draws the staff to the infirmary where the Thing has disappeared and the doctor has been immolated, with evidence of other powers used in damage to the room. At first they think others had come to abduct the Thing and Walter heads out into the snow to track them, but he realizes too late that the powers involved were all in one individual. Before he can return, a nova blast back at the lab kills the rest of his colleagues. Walter gets back to the smouldering wreckage to confront the true culprit, the one that had taken the form of the Thing to protect himself on re-entry from space, the Super-Skrull.

At thirteen, Jeanne-Marie Beaubier discovers her ability to fly during a suicide attempt jumping from the roof of her school.
