He and the other adaptoids defeat the Secret Avengers and return to their city, the Core with the woman and child. Ant-Man sneaks along, shrunk down and hidden in Urn's pant leg. He reveals himself and tries to free the child but is chased by Swine and Urn. When they catch up to him they stomp him down as it appears Ant-Man is killed. Swine continues after the child with Urn as they run into Black Widow and Valkyrie. He smashes Black Widow's face into the ground and attacks Valkyrie with her own sword, shattering her shoulder.
Venom arrives and saves Valkyrie by attacking Swine. He is able to adapt to Venom's symbiote and begins to tear Flash apart. Flash webs Valkyrie's sword and whips it into Swine's chest.
