The heralds travel to Pluraris VI, where Terrax has been exiled. Silver Surfer negotiates with Terrax, to make him join his group of former heralds of Galactus. Terrax will not listen and instead attacks all of them. He puts up a mighty fight but realizes he cannot beat all of them. He decides he would rather die than be taken to a prison planet.
Nebula and Geatar have travelled to Annoval 14, a prison planet known as the Anvil. She plans to break her former crew out of the prison.
Terrax finally listens but will only help them on two conditions. He wants his freedom when it is over and he wants his axe back. The Surfer agrees and they travel to the part of space where Surfer threw Terrax's axe. They manage to find it and return it to him. They are finally ready to face Morg.
