History

Blue Marvel vs King Hyperion

Tony Stark was visiting Karshi-Khanabad Air Base in Uzbekistan. It is there he first met U.S.A.F.; Major Carol "Cheeseburger" Danvers. She was chosen to fly his new experimental aircraft. However the jet was taken out by a missile and crashed in Afghanistan.[1]

Blue Marvel after a discussion with Uatu the Watcher, traveled to Uzbekistan to help the Winter Guard subdue the extra-dimensional King Hyperion.[2]

Agent Venom was sent on a mission to recover Yusef Kassim who was kidnapped? by U.L.T.I.M.A.T.U.M. Also, Demonico has been located. However, she can only be tracked by Venom, due to the traces of the symbiote in the tracking chip. In Turkish airspace, Kate tells that the communicator is being disruptor due to the Sky Spider's stealth technology, so when Flash goes down, he will not be able to communicate with her. Flash descends in a parachute and infiltrates the facility, taking out several guards. As Flag Smasher interrogates Yusef, a guard comes in, saying that they are being attacked. As Flag Smasher goes to address the emergency, the guard transforms into Flash, having used the suit's shape-shifting powers to infiltrate the cell Yusef was held in. He then takes Demonico and another guard down. He then rescues Kassim and escapes. Flag Smasher and a group of guards attack them. Flash notices that an alarm system built into Kassim's manacles must have warned them when he left the cell. Flag Smasher throws a grenade to take Flash out. This disintegrates Flash's legs, and Venom awakens. Venom quickly kills the guards. When Flag Smasher threatens to detonate Kassim's restraints, Venom simply bites his arm off. This all terrorizes Kassim.When he regains control, Flash takes Kassim to the Sky Spider. There, Kassim is intimidated by Flash into saying that Flash was a hero.[3]
