The Initiative is threatened like never before! With public opinion turning against the Initiative following the Skrull invasion of Earth, the camp's black-ops unit, the Shadow Initiative, must leave headquarters on an important mission to abduct one of their own, Hardball - a former Initiative member who has defected to the terrorist organization Hydra. Meanwhile, as angry protesters surround Camp Hammond, a massive threat from within is revealed. Though the Skrulls might be gone, their handiwork is still very much alive as a fearsome foe from the past appears, forcing the remaining members of the Initiative to unite, or be lost in the storm.
