Synopsis for "No one gets back alive! Part 2"

Face to face with his ex-wife Lyja causes Johnny to think back to all of his past relationships. From childhood romances, to his past loves such as Frankie Raye, Namorita and Crystal of the Inhumans. Of them all, none have ever gotten as close to him as Lyja did and now she is part of the Skrull invasion of Earth, trapping the Baxter Building in the Negative Zone. With her laser blasts restored, Lyja attacks Johnny putting him on the defensive.

In the Baxter Building kitchen, Franklin and Valeria have finished counting to 100 and come out of their hiding spot to find that there has been a battle. Franklin picks up his baby sister and runs off to get something that will make them equal members of the Fantastic Four. Elsewhere in the headquarters, the Thing is battling various Negative Zone bugs that have broken their way into their headquarters. While at that same moment, Johnny and Lyja continue to fight it out. Johnny is shocked to find that Lyja is immune to his flame powers. Still demanding to know what happened to Sue and Reed, Lyja reiterates to Johnny that they are prisoners of the Skrulls who are now invading Earth. As they fight, Johnny notices a police car being pulled through the portal that brought them into the Negative Zone, and pushes Lyja out of its path. The Human Torch suggests that they stop fighting and talk, for old times sake. Because he saved her life, Lyja stops resisting against him and the pair kiss. Their romantic interlude is interrupted when they are attacked by a massive jellyfish type creature. When it grabs Lyja, the two start pooling their powers to break her free.

Back inside the Baxter Building, the Thing comes across a Negative Zone creature, a giant squid. However he is joined by Valeria and Franklin who have put on a combat suit that allow them to help out without getting in harms way. Without a moments notice, they use the armor to blast the squid away. With Reed's lab back under control, they find that the Negative Zone portal has been smashed. Just then, Johnny returns with Lyja and fills them in on what's been going on. With the portal smashed, they are trapped without any apparent way of getting free. However, Franklin suggests they go look for someone at the super-villain prison that Mister Fantastic built in the Negative Zone.


Continuity Notes

Continuity Errors

  • In the flashback sequence where Crystal tells Johnny that she is in love with Quicksilver, Johnny is depicted wearing the "inverted" white on black costumes that the Fantastic Four wore from Fantastic Four #256415, however this sequence happened in Fantastic Four #131, when Johnny was still wearing the classic black on blue costumes that the Fantastic Four traditionally wear.
