Synopsis for "Spider-Woman Agent of S.W.O.R.D., Part Seven"

Perched on the side of a building high above Madripoor, Spider-Woman is getting dressed down by her new boss, Abigail Brand, for drawing so much attention to herself on what was supposed to be a secret Skrull hunt. Spider-Woman points out that she was attacked by a Skrull as soon as she arrived in Madripoor, so she decided to rattle some cages in an effort to draw her target out. Speaking of, Brand tells Spider-Woman the Skrull that attacked her had his civilian ID on him and, after a quick pep talk, forwards her his information so that she can track down his contacts.

After a day of recovery and back in civilian garb, Jessica goes to a market to find a woman who filed a police report that her boyfriend - who shares a name with the Skrull that attacked Jessica - is missing. The woman tells Jessica that her boyfriend, Brandon Kay, is actually Spider-Man, and that he’s been missing for a week and she is afraid he’s been hurt or worse. Jessica asks if she knew of anyone else “Spider-Man” met with, and she says there is a bar across town.

Jessica finds the bar in Madripoor’s District 14, and her S.W.O.R.D. alien detector indicates there’s an extraterrestrial (of some sort) inside. Standing among the revelers on the dance floor, Jessica calls out her target’s name: “KORU KAVITI!!” An older patron turns away from watching a dancer and transforms into a hulking Super-Skrull. Jessica and Kaviti begin to battle, exchanging energy/venom blasts as bar customers run screaming. Kaviti proves to be too strong for Jessica, pummeling her repeatedly before lifting her by the throat. Jessica tries to fight back, but an explosion in the bar sends her flying out into the street. Kaviti taunts Jessica, saying that the Skrull Queen Veranke chose to replace her because they knew no one would notice, and that even though everything else about their invasion went wrong, they were right about that.

Just as Kaviti is about to land a fatal blow, a sudden explosion knocks him off his feet. Jessica looks up and sees the New Avengers have come to her aid - Luke Cage, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Mockingbird, Ronin, Captain America, and Ms. Marvel, her fists glowing with photon energy. Jessica is at first convinced they are all Skrulls, despite her S.W.O.R.D. watch detecting only humans in the team. But when Kaviti runs, Jessica allows herself to believe she does still have friends who would come to her side.

Jessica turns her S.W.O.R.D. alien detector on the crowd and it alerts on the now-shape-shifted Kaviti. As Kaviti threatens to kill every human bystander, Wolverine plunges his claws through Kaviti’s back. Kaviti strikes back at Wolverine, giving Jessica an opening to hit him in the back with a fatal venom blast. The fight is over.

On the Quinjet, Wolverine tells Jessica that the New Avengers have her back, and reassures her that no matter how screwed she feels, Wolverine is “the most screwed over person in the history of the universe”. Jessica looks down at her phone, sees a new message from Abigail Brand, and says she’s not so sure about that. Grinning, Spider-Woman flies away from the Quinjet towards her next mission for S.W.O.R.D.
