Synopsis for "Forever: Part 2"

The island of Manhattan is under attack by the Kree empire, who have just managed to disable the massive invisible force field placed around the island by the Invisible Woman and Iron Man. While in SoHo, Alicia Masters cries out as the Thing is overpowered by a group of Kree Sentries. Within the Baxter Building, Spider-Man is too late to stop the opening of the Negative Zone portal, but miraculously, the Human Torch is alive and well and in command of the Annihilation Wave after taking the Cosmic Control Rod from Annihilus. Johnny interrupts the happy reunion with Spider-Man as he has something important to do. Johnny then fires off a Fantasti-Flare that is seen by everyone across the city.

Seeing this gives the Thing the strength to fight back against the Kree Sentries, shattering them to pieces. After making sure that Alicia is safe, the Thing goes back into battle. While in the Future City, the Kree are preparing to move the Supreme Intelligence from the planet when suddenly they witness as the ship of the Universal Inhumans arrives over them and merges with Attilan. The Supreme Intelligence orders Ronan to accompany him, but the Accusor is unwilling to eradicate the Inhumans due to the love he feels for his wife Crystal. The Intelligence regrets to hear it and tells Ronan to enjoy his last few hours before the end.

Back in New York City, the heroes have all regrouped at the Baxter Building where the Fantastic Four have a happy reunion. Johnny his survival and when they remark that he seems older, Reed reminds them that time passes slower in the Negative Zone and Johnny had been gone for roughly two years. Johnny explains that he now rules the Negative Zone after taking the Cosmic Control Rod from Annihilus. When Annihilus tries to take it back, the Thing kicks him down, and Johnny warns him that they have unfinished business to sort out later. With the Kree forces regrouping, the Light Brigade tell the others that they can handle the invaders. When they ask how, Johnny has the Negative Zone expanders activated and sends the Annihilation Wave into space to deal with the Kree.

The Fantastic Four and Spider-Man join the Annihilation Wave in Johnny's stip where they cross paths with the Kree armada. As they engage their foes in battle, they are joined by the Inhumans who ask to join the fight. With the Fantastic Four's blessings, the Inhumans begin to lay waste to the Kree. However, the Fantastic Four get word from the Earth that the battle in orbit is coming at a cost: The debris from battle is hitting the planet causing untold damage and threatening to wipe out all life on Earth.
