Synopsis for "This Beachhead Earth"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Avengers #93.

Captain America, Thor and Iron Man are in Avengers Mansion when the Vision bursts in and passes out. Henry Pym conveniently arrives in the guise of Ant Man in time to repair him by shrinking down to microscopic size and entering his inert form. Battling through the Vision's high-tech immune system, the miniature Avenger revives the synthezoid.

After Ant-Man has departed, the Vision explains to them the events that led up to his arrival: The battle in the Arctic, the insurgency in alien hysteria, H. Warren Craddock's government hearings and finally the fact that Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor had ordered the Avengers to disband. The Big Three heroes are shocked to hear the last part as they did not in fact issue such a proclamation.

The Vision continues his story: after being ordered to disband, Vision, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and Goliath left to meet up with Captain Marvel and soon found themselves battling three cows that shape changed into Mr. Fantastic, the Thing, and the Human Torch. The Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver were captured but the Vision escaped thanks to his density changing powers. As the Vision finishes explaining his story, the Avengers vow to rescue their friends and Mar-Vell.

At the farm, Captain Marvel and Carol Danvers are being held prisoner by the Skrulls. They watch helplessly on the monitors as the Skrulls disguise themselves as members of the Fantastic Four to stalk the remaining uncaptured Avengers: Goliath and Rick Jones. The pair is then defeated by the Skrull.

Inside the Skrull’s ship (hidden within the barn), they explain that they were part of the first Skrull invasion force to visit Earth but were defeated by the then recently formed Fantastic Four and hypnotized into believing they were cows. Just then, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and the Vision arrive at the farm to rescue their friends.

While the Skrull engage the arriving Avengers, Mar-Vell frees himself and Carol. While the Avengers battle the Skrull (who assume the forms of the Fantastic Four’s members) and rescue Goliath and Rick, Mar-Vell begins to construct an Omni-Wave projector, a Kree communication device that can also be used as a devastating weapon. However, certain remarks from “Carol” tip-off Mar-Vell that something is not right. He quickly destroys the Omni-Wave and "Carol" reveals himself to be the Super-Skrull in disguise!

The Super Skrull defeats Mar-Vell and sets the ship to blast off. The Avengers, having just defeated their Skrull opponents, attempt to stop the ship from escaping but fail. The Super Skrull escapes...with Mar-Vell, Quicksilver, and the Scarlet Witch as his prisoners.

The story is continued in the next issue.

Synopsis for "More Than Inhuman!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Avengers #94.

Having defeated and captured three Skrulls, the Avengers return to Avengers Mansion and contact the Fantastic Four to report the incident to Mr. Fantastic. He confirms that their opponents are three of the four members of a group the Fantastic Four had previously encountered early in their career. The Avengers then ponder what became of the Vision after the battle.

The Vision followed after the Skrull’s ship that escaped in the last issue. He stealthily makes his way into the craft and eavesdrops on the Super Skrull’s plan. The Super Skrull holds the Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Captain Marvel hostage and intends to deliver them to the Skrull Emperor in hopes of getting his exile pardoned. Before that, however, he aims to destroy another obstacle in the Skrull plan for domination of the Earth: Attilan, the hidden city of the Inhumans (who are descendants of Kree genetic experiments). The Vision overhears the Super Skrull's declaration and attacks. Alas, he fails to prevent the Super Skrull’s wave of destruction upon the city and its surroundings.

Attilan is not without its defenses, however, as an umbrella of dark light energy protects it from the ship’s attack. Realizing that his powers are no match for the Super Skrull, the Vision retreats so as not to risk the lives of those he plans to save.

The Super-Skrull continues his journey towards the Skrull home world. Upon arriving there, he is greeted with hostility but tries fighting his way to the Emperor’s palace in order to confront him directly. It’s a wasted effort and he is defeated. His three hostages are taken to the throne room. The Emperor demands that Mar-Vell build an Omni-Wave device for the Skrull or else they will destroy Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. Although Mar-Vell initially refuses, the two mutant Avengers are placed in a death trap that overwhelms them until he relents and agrees to build the Omni-Wave device. Thus, the two heroes are (momentarily) spared.

Back on Earth, the Avengers plan out their next course of action when they get a tip from Nick Fury of an impending attack. Moments later, H. Warren Craddock arrives with a trio of Mandroids (soldiers in suits of high-tech armor designed by Tony Stark) to capture the Avengers. As the heroes battle against the Mandroids, Triton of the Inhumans crawls out of a manhole seeking aid from the team.

The story continues in the next issue.
