Synopsis for "Validator"

Eight hours ago, Canada’ Department H summoned the Avengers to share about one of the Origin Bomb’s quarantined impact sites at Regina. Previously thought contained, it began growing out of control with an unknown form of life. Canada’s superhero team Omega Flight, led by Validator, was sent to investigate and contain the site, but they were all apparently killed and sealed within the organism. Dept H tried every means possible of breaching the organism’s shell before contacting the Avengers. He asks if the Avengers can get inside, and Eden says he can.

Inside, the Avengers and the Canadian liaison find the ruins of Regina completely covered with alien vegetation and fauna. Small yellow creatures speaking the Builders’ language guide them to a glowing pool where they find a transformed Validator, who says something in the Builders’ language and teleports them outside of the alien zone. The Canadian liaison asks Captain America if he saw it too, and whether anyone can force him to reveal what he saw. Cap says no. The liaison says he has an implanted visual recorder that will be reviewed by Dept H, and once they see it, they will ask questions. He then commits suicide.

Later, after the Avengers have left claiming to remember nothing, Maria Hill says that an additional 327 hours of footage was found on the liaison’s recording device, not just from the present mission but from the past and future as well. They realize that Validator told him something.

Flying home, the Avengers are silent; each contemplating how they themselves were altered and transformed (or ripped into and out of time) within the alien zone. Eden asks why the liaison killed himself; Wolverine says that Validator was his daughter, and whatever secret she told him he wanted to protect with his life.

We learn that she told him that “the system is now online.”
