    An army in which each brigade mimics a particular Avenger massacres a 1/3 of the Alpha Centauri population after a mysterious force causes all of their brain functions to cease. Jonz Rickard is revealed to be responsible. And gives a speech about how 12 Alpha-Centaurians tried to rebel against his "Terran Empire". These events are shown to upset the Time Keepers and they say that "Steps must be taken..."

    The Scene changed to the Blue Area of the Moon where the Avengers are delivering a critically injured Rick Jones to a special lab for medical treatment. He appears to be dying of an infection caused by his former powers that were granted to him by the Supreme Intelligence of the Kree. The Avengers then meet with the Supreme Intelligence, who is a prisoner, to see if it has any insight on Rick's conditions. The Supreme Intelligence agrees to help and the Avengers leave. Shortly thereafter a man in a robe enters the Supreme Intellegence's cell and reveals that he and the Supreme Intellegence have been manipulating the Avengers and Rick to further some unknown plot.

    The scene changes again to Limbo (which seems to be a different Limbo than the one Magik once ruled but may have been related). Immortus sits on a throne viewing multiple monitors and focusing on the scene of Rick Jones and the Supreme Intellegence we saw before, sends Tempus to kill Rick Jones. He is thwarted by Kang, who attempts to kill Tempus and shatters him. Tempus's body fragments are then used by Immortus as a gateway to bring through his Army of the Ages (warriors from across time and space) to fight Kang. A battle ensues between Immortus's army and Kang, during which Rick Jones wakes up. The Supreme Intellegence telepatically summons the robed man from before, and he infuses Rick with some strange energy which explodes from Rick's body and is meant to summon heroes from alternate times and realities.

    Scene changes again and we see Captain America, Songbird, Yellowjacket, Hawkeye, Genis-Vell, Wasp and Goliath all confused in a fuzzy gray area in costumes that span from different points in Avengers history...
