Synopsis for "Book One"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Secret War #1.

In Harlem, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones return to their apartment, and Luke pressures a group of neighborhood kids to get him the name of a local drug-dealer who is selling to kids. Inside the apartment they discover a woman who prompertly destroys the apartment with a massive energy blast.

"1000 feet over Langley, Virginia" aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, Nick Fury listens to a lengthy list of reports, and learns that the attack in Harlem put Cage in the hospital in a coma.

Fury travels to Metro Hospital where he finds Danny Rand and Jessica sitting with the comatose Cage. Jessica demands to know why Fury has come.

"One year ago," the Killer Shrike was apprehended by Iron Man and Thor, and interrogated by S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents Woo and Sitwell, who demand to know where Maddicks got the funding for his expensive equipment. Maddicks ultimately agrees to turn over the Tinkerer and leads S.H.I.E.L.D. to Philadelphia, but is killed by a trap left by Mason.

"Later," Fury searches the Tinkerer's workshop, finding little, and resorts to calling Natasha Romanoff, who has tracked the Tinkerer at the Latverian International Airport where he is picked up by a car with government plates.

Some time later, Fury meets with the President at the White House and delivers a report "on a project codenamed CIRCUIT" which has revealed that a number of "technological themed criminals" – including Jack O'Lantern, Killer Shrike, Goldbug, Grizzly, and Grim Reaper – "were getting their materials from...the Tinkerer," whose criminal endeavors were in turn being financed by Lucia von Bardas, "the elected Prime Minister of Latveria." Fury recommends taking decisive action against von Bardas, but the President suggests handling the situation "diplomatically" instead.

Fury storms out of the White House, explaining to Contessa Valentina de la Fontaine that the government's inaction will get innocent people killed, and that he refuses to "go through it again."

In the "present day," Fury looks on the comatosa Luke Cage, and asks himself: "What have I done?"

  • Flight 456 to Latveria

Synopsis for "Book Two"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Secret War #2.

"One year ago," Captain America stopped a group of terrorists from kidnapping their nation's ambassador in front of the United Nations Headquarters. Later, he was approached by Nick Fury, who needs a team to carry out "something secret."

In Hell's Kitchen, Daredevil stopped a group of "drug-addled teenagers" from stealing a woman's purse, then left the scene when the police arrived before heading to his law office where he found Nick Fury waiting to meet with him.

In Harlem, Luke Cage intimidated a drug dealer and ordered him never to sell in Harlem again before releasing the kid, after which Cage was approached by Nick Fury.

Elsewhere in New York City, Spider-Man headed home for "a night to remember" with his wife, but arrived to find Nick Fury in his apartment. Fury requested that Parker accompany him on a trip the following week with "no costume, no webs."

The following week, Parker rushed to board "Flight 456 to Latveria," and discovers Matt Murdock, Luke Cage, and Steve Rogers already on the plane. Murdock admitted to him that he also knew nothing of their mission, and Parker saw Wolverine stumble drunkenly out of the bathroom and recognized Parker's scent. Wolverine made lewd comments to the flight attendant until Rogers threatened to remove Howlett from the plane unless he did "what the lady says." None of them seemed to notice the dark-haired girl among them.

In Latveria, Rogers is greeted at the airport by the Latverian attaché of domestic affairs, and Murdock is approached by Natasha Romanov, who escorts the team out of the airport along with the dark-haired girl, who claims to be "with the group."

At a safehouse, Natasha confirmed that the building is clean of listening devices and opened the door for a large woman who is revealed to be Nick Fury in disguise. Fury explained that S.H.I.E.L.D. had built a case proving that the Latverian government was funding tech-themed criminals in the United States, and briefed the team on its mission: to overthrow the Latverian government.

"Today," Fury visits Metro Hospital where he finds Jessica Jones and Danny Rand sitting with a comatose Luke Cage. Moments later, Steve Rogers arrives, attacking Fury as he insists that he warned Fury that something like this would happen.

Synopsis for "Book Three"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Secret War #3.

During his and Mary Jane's anniversary dinner, Peter Parker experiences vivid memories of a vicious battle in Latveria. Later that night, he wakes from a nightmare of the same battle, and dons his Spider-Man costume.

At Mt. Sinai Hospital, Fury orders Steve Rogers outside, but Steve tells Jessica to "get away from here" and "keep your baby safe" before instructing Rand to prepare to move Cage because "too many people have seen him." Jessica steps into the lobby to call Matt Murdock.

In Hell's Kitchen, Daredevil returns home to find Spider-Man in his apartment, and Parker explains that he is seeing "images" "like a dream" of a battle in Latveria involving himself, Murdock, Luke Cage, Black Widow, Wolverine and Captain America, even though he knows that no such battle ever happened. Murdock insists that he is having no such experiences, and the two listen to a message that Jessica left for Murdock about Luke Cage ending up comatose in the hospital.

Daredevil and Spider-Man set out for Mt. Sinai, but they are attacked by Diamondback and Scorcher. The criminals discuss an impending attack moments before Daredevil attacks Diamondback while Spider-Man battles Scorcher. The criminals flee the scene, and Murdock tells Parker that they have to get to the hospital because "something's going on."

Outside the hospital, Rogers explains to Fury that he was ambushed on his way home to his civilian life by Lady Octopus and the Hobgoblin. Daredevil and Spider-Man arrive moments later and describe the attack on Murdock's home, and Rogers admits that exactly one year has passed since the team's "secret war." Daredevil interrupts the conversation to warn them that they have to move and suggests that Fury and Rogers call for backup, and moments later, the hospital comes under attack by a battalion of technology-themed supervillains including Lady Octopus, Hobgoblin, Scorcher, Eel, Trapster, Boomerang, Wizard, Goldbug, Spider-Slayer, Grim Reaper, Crimson Dynamo, Constrictor, Mentallo, Scorpion, King Cobra, Shocker, and Mister Fear.

Fury calls in "an army load of gun-totin' S.H.I.E.L.D. agents," and Daredevil interrogates Scorcher as Mister Fantastic, Invisible Girl, Human Torch and The Thing arrive.

The battle rages on until the sudden arrival of Lucia von Bardas, who uses the armor of the assembled tech-themed supervillains to create a massive antimatter bomb.

Synopsis for "Book Five"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Secret War #5.

In the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier's Interrogation Room C, Commander Marie Hill questions 18-year-old Agent Daisy Johnson regarding the incident in New York City, but Johnson suggests that Hill watch the satellite recording of the event for herself.

"Six hours earlier," Lucia von Bardas battled against Nick Fury, Captain America, Daredevil, Spider-Man, and the Fantastic Four as she created a massive antimatter bomb by networking the armor of a battalion of technology-themed supervillains. The Thing destroyed the pier in an attempt to diffuse the building energy, and von Bardos was incapacitated by the timely arrival of Daisy Johnson.

Aboard the Helicarrier, Johnson explains to Hill that she is not a mutant, but does possess powers from "genetic damage, handed down from [her] jerk of a father," and that she used her "ability to generate seismic waves" to pinpoint von Bardas's power source and short-circuit it.

Following the battle in New York City, Rogers threatens to explain what has happened if Fury refuses, but the conversation is interrupted by the arrival of Wolverine, Emma Frost, Cyclops, and Shadowcat, who demand to know why Wolverine was attacked on the grounds of Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. Fury explains that Wolverine, like Rogers, Murdock, Parker, and Luke Cage, was targeted for his part in helping to overthrow the Latverian government "a year ago today," though none of them remember taking part in such an insurrection. Rogers claims that there is a reason, and Fury explains.

A year prior, Fury briefed the President on his evidence that tech-themed supervillains in the United States were being financed through the Tinkerer by Lucia von Bardas. The President decided to handle the situation diplomatically, and Fury decided to ignore the President's orders in order to deal with the threat directly. He recruited Steve Rogers, Matt Murdock, Luke Cage, Peter Parker, and Wolverine, and flew the team to Latveria where they launched an attack on Castle Doom, where they cornered von Bardas before Agent Johnson used her seismic powers to collapse the entire Castle.

In the aftermath of the battle in New York City, Fury told the assembled heroes that his actions were "the language they understand," and explained that after the attack on Castle Doom, S.H.I.E.L.D. erased the memories of everyone involved. He defended his decision, claiming that "this fight was absolutely worth dying for, and it was worth sacrificing you for. It was worth losing my job for. And it was worth killing for." Wolverine insisted that he would have completed the mission "without the head games," then drove his claws through Fury's chest before Agent Johnson used her seismic powers to explode Wolverine's heart inside his chest. Before dying, Fury revealed that he was a life model decoy and claimed that no one would ever see or hear from him again, and Johnson explained that the real Nick Fury had left the scene shortly after the battle ended.

Aboard the Helicarrier, Agent Hill demands to know where Fury is, but Agent Johnson insists that she doesn't know. Hill calls Fury a war criminal and, having become the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D., takes Johnson off assignment before demanding that Natasha Romanov be found.

Later, on the deck of the Helicarrier, Agent Johnson receives a call, and answers simply: "Yes? Yes, sir."
