§ StoryTitle1 = Cat's-Paw! § Synopsis1 = The action opens immediately with the Fantastic Four taking down the Sandman, who appears to be robbing a bank in New York. Afterwards, they return to the Baxter Building where they run into their old family friend Agatha Harkness. Harkness asks them if they would like to accompany her back to New Salem for a festival. The team decides to do so, take young Franklin and make this into a vacation. This brings them into a major conflict with Salem's Seven who are trying to return Nicholas Scratch to the earthly realm. Salem's Seven defeat the FF and leave Agatha Harkness and all the residents of New Salem in a coma like trance. They spare Franklin Richards as he is just a apparently harmless child. They transport the unconscious Fantastic Four back to New York City.

Franklin's mutant powers bring Agatha and the town out of their trance. Agatha and Franklin journey back to the Baxter Builing where Salem's Seven have arranged the inert bodies of the Fantastic Four as a nexus to return Nicholas Scratch to the realm. The Avengers and other heroes of New York note this huge surge of pulsating energy. When they come to investigate, they are rebuffed by an invisible mystic barrier. Agatha, with her magical powers, and Franklin are able to go through the mystic barrier. They encounter a mind-controlled Fantastic Four who have been ordered by Salem's Seven to kill the two intruders. However, the team is released from the mind-control and they return to confront Salem's Seven. Agatha is able to take away Salem's Seven's power and keep her son, Nicholas Scratch, imprisoned in this dark realm.

| Synopsis1 = Hulk was sent flying through the skies by the power of Machine Man, and he crashed in Northeastern British Columbia. After feeling the shock from the impact a woman nearby, named Maureen Mores Friesen, went outside to see what happened. She found Hulk down with his head buried and she tried to help him so he won't suffocate. When Hulk wakes up, he sees her and thinks she is an enemy but the girl explains to him what happened and Hulk calls her a friend. He take Mores to her home where Hulk calmed down and became Dr. Bruce Banner.

In the meantime, the Canadian army is trying to find someone to fight Hulk. But the only active member of the Alpha Flight is Sasquatch. After a conversation, they call him. When Dr. Langkowski learns the situation he is excited to see who is more powerful, Hulk or Sasquatch, and accepts the mission. At the arrival point, he transforms and lands in the area.

Maureen Mores Friesen, after a conversation with Dr. Banner, has gone out. After some time Bruce Banner heard a scream and he goes out with a shotgun to find Mores at the hands of Sasquatch. When Bruce calms down, he tries to communicate with Sasquatch, but Dr. Langkowski wants Hulk so he tried to enrage him by pushing him off a cliff. After that, the two monsters fight each other. From their battle, a rocky avalanche starts and Mores are in its way. Sasquatch is trying to save her when Hulk thinks he wants to attack her. When the avalanche stops, Sasquatch popped out from the ground with the girl seeing that the area is destroyed because of him. Then Hulk becomes enraged and wants to kill Sasquatch, but he stops and flees when he sees the scared face of the girl. | Notes = ===Continuity Notes===

| StoryTitle1 = A Mission of Gravity! | Synopsis1 = Medusa and Black Bolt are teleported into the Baxter Building by Lockjaw to seek out the aid of the Fantastic Four, however they find the heroes headquarters deserted. The Hidden Land has been plagued by "air quakes" recently and the Inhumans have come to seek the FF's aid in determining their cause. With nobody present, Black Bolt sends Medusa and Lockjaw back to the Hidden Land while he searches for the Fantastic Four. Remembering that the Thing is in a relationship with Alicia Masters, Black Bolt disguises himself and goes seeking out her home.

Finding her home, in spite of the communication barrier between Black Bolt's self-imposed muteness and Alicia's blindness, Black Bolt is able to communicate to her that he is seeking out the Thing. Knowing that Ben had gone to renew his driver's license that day, Alicia agrees to help Black Bolt find him. At the local DMV, the Thing is impatiently waiting in a cue, unaware that both Edwin Jarvis and his lady friend Judy are waiting in the line as well as Jarvis had just gotten his American drivers license.

Outside, Judy is recognized by the amnestic Graviton who grabs her and freezes Jarvis in place with his gravity powers. When the cab driver tells Alicia and Black Bolt of the commotion in the street, Blot grabs Alicia and runs out of the cab. This is just as Ben is exiting the DMV himself and when he sees some disguised person running off with his girl Alicia, he unthinkingly attacks the person realizing too late that it's his old ally Black Bolt. The confusion allows Graviton to escape with Judy, however, Jarvis is freed from the excess gravity locking in place and he asks Thing and Black Bolt for help rescuing the girl.

Graviton reveals himself to the girl in an alley and explains that he doesn't remember who he is. Just then the Thing and Black Bolt catch up and attack the villain, who defends himself with his Gravity powers. With Black Bolt distracting Graviton, Judy explains to Ben of Graviton's origins and his battle against the Avengers which left everyone believing that he had been killed. After Judy finishes explaining her story, Graviton remembers who he really is and absorbing a much mass as possible he mutates into a living black-hole. Realizing that he has gone too far, Graviton asks Black Bolt for sanctuary and a chance to redeem himself, a request which the king of the Inhumans denies.

Furious at this rejection, Graviton uses his powers to extract a part of the sun and send it hurtling toward Attilan. As this is happening he unleashes an onslaught of miniature black holes against the two heroes, which Black Bolt's powers easily deflect. Graviton then goes on a rampage through the city. Ben sends Alicia and Judy back to Avengers Mansion with Jarvis while Black Bolt goes into space and destroys the portion of the sun hurtling towards Earth before rejoining Ben in New York to continue their battle against Graviton.

With the help of a physicist, who translates an idea that Black Bolt has come up with, they heroes determine that Graviton is a representation of a negative universe and that a chunk of anti-matter would be enough to destroy the foe. Converting a chunk of concrete into anti-matter, the two heroes take it to Graviton who has fought his way to the United Nations building. However, when Ben throws the chunk of Anti-Matter at Graviton, Black Bolt -- realizing that Graviton has regained his sanity knocks it away. Graviton explains to Ben what the leader of the Inhumans had seen, and disgusted with what he has become Graviton seemingly destroys himself.

| StoryArc = The Pegasus Project | StoryTitle1 = The Pegasus Project Part 6: To the Nth Power! | Synopsis1 = Continued from last issue....

Klaw has the Thing, Quasar, and Giant Man at his mercy and is about to blast the Thing at point-blank range when he suddenly discorporates and is shunted back into his sonic claw. This has been caused by Wundarr who has now achieved a normal intellect and is calling himself Aquarian. When the Thing revives, Aquarian explains to Ben that he has undergone this change after a second exposure to the Cosmic Cube. With the help of the Project Pegasus security staff, Ben and Wundarr take Giant-Man and Quasar back to the infirmary. There Aquarian explains to Ben that he has detected a disturbance in the very fabric of reality.

Taking the Thing down to the lower levels of the Pegasus complex, they find that Thomas Lightner has transformed into the nebulous Nth Man, a human-shaped sentient void that is literally sucking all reality into itself. Nth Man explains his plot to the two of them and his intention to absorb all reality. Aquarian then tries to stop Lightner by using his energy dampening powers, which succeeds only in turning off all the power in Project Pegasus, including the energy bars of Thundra's holding cell.

As Wundarr continues to try and stop Nth Man, Quasar and Giant-Man revive and meet up with Ben to see what they can do, they are soon also joined by Thundra. Quasar tries first to stop the creature with his Quantum Bands, however, they have no effect as Nth Man can absorb even it's massive energies. Giant-Man then decides that he is going to sacrifice himself to save the universe hoping that his size powers can "plug" the Nth Man. When the others try to stop them, Giant-Man reveals that he had contracted terminal cancer from his encounter with Atom Smasher and that he is doomed to die anyway and jumps into the Nth Man. This ploy also does not work, and in a desperate measure, Aquarian jumps into the Nth Man hoping his powers can work from the inside.

This works in the heroes favor, and Aquarian and Giant-Man are pulled out of Nth Man, as Aquarians very own powers causes Nth Man's absorption to reverse shunting the menace off to another reality. Although they are victorious, Quasar grimly wonders if their victory over the Nth Man has doomed some other reality in the Multiverse.

With the battle over, Ben decides to return to the Fantastic Four and bids farewell to everyone, including Wundarr who decides to venture on his own and try to bring peace on Earth. The Thing departs leaving Bill to try and find a cure for his illness, Quasar resuming security detail at the Project and Thundra going to investigate who her mysterious employers were. Unknown to all, the masterminds behind the attacks on Project Pegasus is none other than the Roxxon Oil company, hoping to stop the project in order to prevent a discovery of a perpetual fuel source that might cut into their oil profits. However, the CEO of Roxxon writes off this failure as his organization has more lucrative measures in place that will soon come to fruition.

The Thing departs leaving Bill to try and find a cure for his illness, Quasar resuming security detail at the Project and Thundra going to investigate who her mysterious employers were. Unknown to all, the masterminds behind the attacks on Project Pegasus is none other than the Roxxon Oil company, hoping to stop the project in order to prevent a discovery of a perpetual fuel source that might cut into their oil profits. However, the CEO of Roxxon writes off this failure as his organization has more lucrative measures in place that will soon come to fruition.
