    OPERATION: GALACTIC STORM PART 2 Rick Jones is missing in hyperspace, or at least that's what the West Coast Avengers think! Rick Jones, prisoner of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard, subject to the mind control of Oracle! Will Captain America be able to rally the troops for this much needed rescue? Plus, Quasar joins the fray when starts trailing the Shi'ar for himself!

    As a captive of the Imperial Guard, Rick Jones is telepathically interrogated by Oracle to reveal the location of the hidden Kree outpost where he first met Captain Marvel. He is then enslaved by her mental control to lead them there so that they can steal the Kree Psyche-Magnetron technology for the Shi'ar Empire.

    Meanwhile, Captain America contacts the Avengers West Coast to help him find Rick since they are closer than the Avengers on the east coast. They manage to track Rick to the Kree outpost just as a Kree Sentry is activated by the Imperial Guard's intrusion. The Avengers are forced to fight both, which allows the Imperial Guard to escape with the stolen Kree technology. However, Captain America succeeds in rescuing Rick Jones.

    In space, Quasar pursues the Shi'ar starship until it makes a hyperspace jump, and he notices the strange solar flares that causes for Earth's sun.

    "Are we in for a Kree/Shi'ar war this time?" 0

    Picking up directly after part 1, AWC 80 is an incredibly packed issue a decade before 24 made the time-conscious narrative popular (but over a decade after the M*A*S*H episode "Life Time"). Rick Jones's assumption the Kree are kidnapping him is understandable, considering they are inquiring after the Kree Captain Mar-Vell and he just had the dream about the Kree's homeworld. The rapid backstory review might be confusing to readers who weren't around to read comics in the late '60s and '70s like...
