Synopsis for "The Pegasus Project Part 1: The Inner War!"
Feeling guilty that he has neglected his adopted "son" Wundarr, the Thing decides to pay a visit to Project Pegasus to see if the young man has recovered from his coma since being exposed to the energies of the Cosmic Cube. After passing the security screening he is granted access and given a priority access card. When he meets Quasar, the new chief of security, Ben mistakes him for the Crusader -- an insane Uranian super-hero which the Fantastic Four previously battled and thought dead. After a brief scuffle, Quasar reveals that he is really Wendel Vaughn, whose father had recovered the Crusaders Quantum Bands following his death and gave them over to his son. With the misunderstanding cleared up, Quasar takes Ben to see Wundarr. Along the way, Ben runs into Thomas Lightner, who seems innocent enough but gives Ben the creeps. For good reason, however, because after the two heroes leave Lightner's presence, he calls in his mysterious employer and tells his master at an organization called Nth Command to initiate the next phase of a fiendish plot.
Meanwhile, in Manhattan, Thundra is walking the streets when he runs into a musclebound man threatening wrestling promoter Herkimer J. Oglethorpe. Easily beating the ruffian, Oglethorpe decides to offer her a career in the wrestling league which he promotes for.
Back at Project Pegasus, Quasar takes Thing to Wundarr's room and explains that since the man-child had been exposed to the Cosmic Cube he's been a living sponge, absorbing energies in his vicinity, even the Thing's own strength. Trying to rouse the boy doesn't work and so the two decide to retire for the night to check on the boys status in the morning. As they try to rest, Lightner knocks out some guards and allows Nth Command's operative: The cyborg Deathlok entry into the compound.
Unable to sleep, the Thing decides to pace around the compound, lost in thought he is unaware that he is walking right into the waiting aim of Deathlok who is programmed to kill anyone who gets in his way.

Synopsis for "Menace From the Moons of Saturn!"
Continued from last issue...
Kraven the Hunter is about to throw Daredevil off a cliff into the angry waters below, and despite her best efforts to stop Kraven, Black Widow fails. However, before Daredevil strikes the rocks below he suddenly disappears, although none see it and Natasha assumes that Daredevil has died. Kraven is then taken down by Black Widow with the help of the police including her friend Paul Carson.
Daredevil however is alive and well and has materialized aboard some strange vessel. Walking forward, Daredevil finds himself in a gigantic alien greenhouse and detects the faint heartbeat of a woman across the room, one that he finds incredibly beautiful. Approaching her he reaches out, causing her to snap out of her meditations and strike DD for interrupting it. Thinking that Daredevil is a thrall of Thanos she attacks him with her mental powers, however Daredevil breaks off the attacks and demands to know answers as to why he has become her target.
She explains that she was from the planet Earth, however after a her parents died in a car crash she was rescued by Mentor, leader of the Eternals of Saturn where she was raised among Mentor's children. Trained in the ways of Shao-Lom, she became a priestess, mastering the her mind and body she would come to be called Moondragon. Her civilization was then destroyed by one of their own: the mad Titan known as Thanos. Wanting vengeance she would learn that Thanos had escaped to her home world of Earth and followed him there. Learning that there were those in Thanos' thrall she would seek out allies and humans that she could empower in order to strike at her foe. With her unseen benefactor she has deduced that Daredevil and the entire city of San Francisco is under Thanos' control.
Daredevil asserts that this is insane, however this doesn't stop her from reactivating her creations: The Dark Messiah, Ramrod, and Angar the Screamer. Daredevil demands that she read his mind so that she can learn the truth, that she has been tricked and that San Francisco is not under Thanos' control. When she does she learns the truth, however it proves to be too late when she is shot from behind by her benefactor: Kerwin J. Broderick.
Now that Moondragon has learned the truth, Broderick has come to eliminate her now that she is of no use. While above the surface the police are taking Kraven the Hunter away when suddenly the ground begins to quake and the last of Moondragon and Broderick's creations comes to life, the earthen creature known as Terrex.
