Fear Itself- The Fearless
Innards and the rest of DOA reappear to do a simple recon mission for Sin
as she attempts to retrieve the mystical hammers when they are scattered throughout the world after the Worthy
and the Serpent
are defeated. The DOA manage to place a spider shaped tracking device on Valkyrie
as she attempts to retrieve the mystic hammers before they fall into the wrong hands. Crossbones
would later lead an assault on the Raft
with Innards and several members of DOA to retrieve the mystic hammer that Titania
once held. Crossbones grabbed the hammer while Innards attempts to restrain and choke Luke Cage
with his intestines. Cage breaks free so Innards grabs his teammate, Rotwrap and they begin to teleport away when Mach-V
unleashes a salvo. The entire party returns back to Sin's hidden base but Innards and several members of DOA suffer from serious burns and injuries from the salvo attack.
