Quote1.png Really, Captain Marvel, I was hoping for a somewhat more original exclamation from you. Something along the line of «Great Gamma Rays!»... Perhaps even «Holy molecules!» But, if you prefer a simple «yaarrhhh!» to be your epitaph... so be it! Quote2.png

Minos Towers is run by famous a pathologist made popular by testing the psychology of rats, and has offered employment and cheap lodging for those who wish to work with him. However, Rick and Mar-Vell soon learn that Webb is using the tenants of Minos Towers as part of his nexy psychological experiment.
