Synopsis for "Something Inhuman This Way Comes..!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Avengers #95.

Triton the Inhuman emerges from the Hudson River and races through the city. On his way, he is accosted by a mob of angry citizens as well as hostile police officers who hunt him in the street. The sewers provide him his only means of escape. When he re-emerges from the sewers, Triton finds himself near the perimeter of Avenger's Mansion just as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents equipped with Mandroid Armor are fighting against the Avengers.

At first, it would appear as if the Avengers are going to be defeated by the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But after re-routing the energy from his own power pods into the Mandroid Armor, Iron Man is able to shut down their opponent’s battle suits. H. Warren Craddock, the senator responsible for ordering the Avengers’ arrest, is furious.

After the battle, Triton explains that he originally intended to seek out the Fantastic Four but stumbled on the Avengers by chance. In need of any aid he could get, Triton asks the Avengers to assist him in retrieving Black Bolt who has been exiled to San Francisco. He explains that Black Bolt's brother, the insane Maximus, has taken over the Hidden City of the Inhumans and Black Bolt is needed to overthrow him.

The Vision is against the idea of helping the Inhumans while their fellow Avengers are being held prisoner by the Skrulls in space. Iron Man however believes it is their duty to help the Inhumans in their hour of need. In the end, it is decided that the Avengers will split into two teams to accomplish their goals: one team comprised of Captain America, Goliath, and Rick Jones will travel to San Francisco with Triton to aid the Inhumans while the other team, consisting of Thor, Iron Man and the Vision, will journey into space to search for the missing Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Captain Marvel.

In San Francisco, Black Bolt and his friend Joey are pinned down in a dilapidated structure while a street gang (who want to exploit Black Bolt's abilities) pursue them. Just as the scuffle begins, Joey is taken hostage by the gang's leader -- but not for long as Captain America throws his shield. It bounces off the wall of the building, taking out the crook before they can shoot. After the skirmish, Black Bolt is in a hurry to return to Attilan to stop his mad brother Maximus. He and the Avengers board the Quinjet to fly there.

Black Bolt thinks back to a time when he discovered Maximus doing a shady deal with the inter-galactic Kree that would have the Inhumans be their regents when they took over the Earth. Black Bolt sprung into action and used his incredible sonic voice to cause the Kree ship to crash. Sadly the crash also caused the death of Blackagar and Maximus' parents, which thereby causing Maximus' mind to snap with madness.

Meanwhile back at Avenger's Mansion, the other team briefly resume the fight with the Mandroids before deciding that it’s for the best that they go to Attilan instead of heading towards the stars. Upon arriving outside the Great Refuge, they are prevented from entering the city by a large black dome. it isn't until the other team arrives that Black Bolt is able to shatter it with his voice.

Inside the city, the Avengers find an Inhuman war party awaiting them, their minds compromised by Maximus. After a quick battle and some words from Black Bolt, the Inhumans lay down their arms. In the royal chamber, the Avengers discover Maximus making yet another deal with the Kree. They battle Maximus and the Kree force. Maximus is dethroned and Black Bolt resumes his place as the rightful leader of the Inhumans. But during the battle, however, the Kree envoy manage to escape and takes Rick Jones with him. Maximus reverts to his insane self while the Avengers vow to travel into space to rescue their captured comrades and stop the Kree and the Skrulls.

The story is continued in the next issue.

Synopsis for "The Andromeda Swarm!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Avengers #96.

Onboard S.H.I.E.L.D.'s space station, the Avengers are granted use of a space shuttle by Nick Fury so that they may travel to the Andromeda galaxy to rescue their captured allies Quicksilver, the Scarlet Witch and Captain Marvel.

Traveling through space, the Avengers run into a Skrull armada outside the solar system that engages them in battle. They fight back against the invading force and board the lead Skrull ship.

A channel is opened to the Skrull homeworld. The Emperor addresses them and reveals that he has forced Mar-Vell to create an Omni-Wave projector which he plans to use as a weapon. But it turns out that it was all a trick: Mar-Vell used the device to project a holographic illusion of himself. The real Mar-Vell is fighting to free himself and his new friends.

The Emperor orders his fleet to initiate Plan Delta before cutting off the transmission. Furious over this turn of events and of the danger facing Wanda, the Vision beats the ship’s captain nearly to death. The Avengers intervene and the ship’s captain quickly relates that Plan Delta is a pre-planned operation to decimate the entire planet Earth. Captain America dispatches Goliath on a life or death mission to stop the Skrull craft being utilized in this plot from reaching Earth.

On the Kree homeworld, Rick Jones (captured by the Kree last issue) is brought before Ronan the Accuser. He locks Rick up with the Supreme Intelligence. There, the Intelligence explains to Rick that he is an important part of the Kree-Skrull War and opens a dimensional gate that transports Rick to the Negative Zone. Arriving there, Rick finds Annhilius there waiting for him.

The story is continued in the next issue.

Synopsis for "Godhood's End!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Avengers #97.

Rick Jones finds himself in the Negative Zone and is confronted by Annhilius. He reflects back on the long chain of events that led him to be in this place before Annihilus attacks him.

Suddenly, Rick's mind projects a force bolt that repels his assailant. Rick is then transported back to the chamber of the Supreme Intelligence on the Kree homeworld. The Supreme Intelligence explains to him that he has accessed the full potential of the human race. The Kree race, the Intelligence explains, has reached an evolutionary dead end and can no longer evolve. The human race on the other hand is only just beginning the evolution into their eventual godlike forms.

Ronan and an army of troops enter, intent on disposing of Rick and the Intelligence. But Rick uses his newfound power to summon duplicates of superheroes from the 1940s to fight off the Kree soldiers. Following the soldiers’ defeat, Rick uses his powers to freeze all members of the Kree and Skrull throughout the universe in their tracks, effectively bringing the Kree-Skrull War to an abrupt halt.

Rick is eventually drained of all his strength and he passes out. The Supreme Intelligence then summons the Avengers and Captain Marvel to his chamber where they all agree to use some of their collective life force to save Rick's life. In doing so, Rick is reverted back to his normal state while he and Captain Marvel are once again bonded together.

On Earth, the anti-alien mobs that H. Warren Craddock whipped up a storm his office and expose the truth: Craddock himself is a Skrull in disguise! The furious humans gang up and kill him.

Afterward, the Intelligence transports them all back to Avengers Mansion where they realize there is one Avenger still missing: Goliath.
