Ben Grimm returns to the pages of the FF as Ronan the Accuser and the armies of the Kree Empire invade the Earth!
On a Kree starship… Ronan is informed by the heads of the upper Kree houses that with the Inhuman Royal Family gone, leadership of the Empire is his if he desires it. Ronan does and tells Crystal privately she is free to return to her family as she knows what he is about to do. Crystal tells her husband she will stay with him and we see a fleet of Kree ships waiting. At the Baxter Building, Reed explains to Sue the events of the recent battle and admits that he’s been acting foolishly of late and promises to do better. Sue also makes Reed promise not to bring any more bad guys in their home.
Latveria… Doctor Doom is the captive of one of the Interdimensional Council of Reeds who has decided to use Doomstadt as a base. There they find Nathaniel Richards waiting for them and the three discuss “The Beast” -- the most aggressive of the Nathaniels and the father of this Reed Richards. Nathaniel explains that he stepped through the door of the Inhuman Eldrak, which takes people where they need to go. This Reed thinks Nathaniel is here to help Doom but Nathaniel tells him he’s here to help Reed.
Avengers Mansion… Ben Grimm completes a phone conversation with Sue while Jarvis brings in a meal. Spider-Man wonders why he didn’t think he needed to be on vacation before he stepped through the door of Eldrak so he wouldn’t have ended up here and be eating a “Jarvis Burger”. Spidey tells Ben if this is where he needs to be then there is only one message he needs to give him – to go help his family.
Outside Attilan… The Kree secretly land a ship near the city and out step Kree soldiers accompanied by Ronan and Crystal. Meanwhile in the hangar of the Baxter Building, Reed and Sue observe a jet land from which out steps Spider-Man, followed by The Thing, followed by The Avengers!
