Appearing in "Deviants Attack!"
- Heroes for Hire
Synopsis for "Deviants Attack!"
Iron Fist, battling the Deviants, checks in on his team; Black Knight is unconscious and being carried away; Sersi confronts Ghaur, only to be defeated; Luke is pummeled by Karkas; White Tiger battle Ransak only to be taken out. Iron Fist is contemplating what his next move should be when he hears a voice, distracting him. A Deviant knocks him to the ground. The voice appears again, and an electric blast shoots from Danny's stomach, blowing the creature away. Kro and his rebellion forces appear, and Danny and Kro introduce themselves, each explaing their position. The voice appears again, this time from Kro's gun, recommending retreat. Danny, Kro and the rebels escape. Ghaur is not bothered as his plans can now move forward with Sersi his prisoner.
The rebels return to their base camp and en route Danny and Kro exchange information. The voice re-appears and reveals himself to be Scott Lang, Ant-Man who Jim Hammond hired as a back-up and has been around since the beginning. Hammond also supplied him with YellowJacket's old bio-electric sting. Using one of Kro's much smaller, flying, followers (named ignatz) Ant-Man goes on a reconnoitering mission. Ant-Man can even use his helmet to communicate with Kro.
The Black Knight who is being held prisoner, has his life threatened by Ransak who is under Ghaur's control, bringing his darker impulses to the fore. Sersi has no choice but to give in to Ghaur's demands and she and Thena begin to work together to alter the Deviants' minds so they can form the Ant-Mind.
Ant-Man has found White Tiger and Luke Cage who are being supervised by Karkas whose natural role as philosopher is being sublimated by Ghaur's control device. Ant-Man destroys the unit, freeing Karkas who then frees Luke and Tiger. They proceed to the throne room and Ant-Man sends the signal to Kro and Iron Fist, telling them to make their move. Danny and Kro and ready, Danny claiming to only need one blow.
Ghaur's plan is near completion and he inteneds to sacrifice the other Eternals he's captured to form the Anti-Mind. He also orders the death of Dane who procliams Avalon, making his armour, shield and sword disappear. He says it again and is ready to deal with Ransak who had been threatening him with his own sword.
Kro is struck down by the attempt to form the Anti-Mind.
Ant-Man finds Thena and Kro's children, who are radiating light and dark respectively. He's about to attempt a bio-electric beam when attacked by an Deviant who sucks him into his mouth. Ant-Man then blasts his way out of the mouth.
In the throne room, Karkas, Luke and Tiger meet up with Danny only to discover the Anti-Mind has already been formed. Karkas attacks his comrade Ransak, leaving Ghaur for the Heroes. The Black Knight uses his Shield of Night to absorb the Anti-Mind's energy blasts and then re-channels it back using the Sword of Light. Ghaur is staggered but not defeated.
Suddenly, something calling itself the Dark Angel appears. Ant-Man's hot on its tail, revealing Thena's children joined together to form the Dark Angel. The Dark Angel flies through the Anti-Mind. Thena, part of the Anti-Mind breaks the psi-link and the Anti-Mind breaks into its component beings. Iron Fist destroys the machinery that made Ghaur's plan possible. The Heroes, plus Kro's forces, Sersi and Thena face off against Ghaur's forces.
