Synopsis for "More Than Inhuman! / Part Two: 1971: A Space Odyssey / Part Three: Behold the Mandroids!"Edit
Continuing from last issue...
After having defeated and captured three Skrulls the Avengers return to Avengers Mansion and contact the Fantastic Four, reporting the incident to Mr. Fantastic who identifies the Skrulls as three of the four members of a group the Fantastic Four had originally encountered. The Avengers are however still left wondering what happened to the Vision.
The Vision has followed after the Skrull ship that escaped the Avengers. Upon making it to said craft he remained hidden, ease dropping on the Super-Skrulls' plans. The Super Skrull who's holding the Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Captain Marvel hostage plans to deliver them to the Skrull Emperor to undo his exile, but before doing so he attempts to destroy another obstacle in the Skrull's way of domination: Attilan, the hidden city of the Inhumans who are descendants of Kree genetic experiments. The Vision overhearing the Super-Skrull's monologue interferes with this attempt, in the end the Vision fails and the Skrull is able to launch a wave of destruction upon the city and all it's surroundings.
However Attilan is not without its defenses as an umbrella of dark light and energy protects it from the Super Skrull's attack. Realizing that his powers are no match for the Super-Skrull, the Vision leaves so as not to risk the lives of those he plans to save, while the Super-Skrull continues his journey towards the Skrull current home world. Upon arriving at the Skrull home world, the Super-Skrull is greeted to aggression and so he fights his way to the palace of the Emperor to combat the Emperor directly, but he's defeated. The Skrulls then transport the Super-Skrull's hostages to the throne room where they force Mar-Vell to agree to build an Omni-Wave device for them or else they'll destroy Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. Mar-Vell initially refuses but upon seeing his allies near death changes his mind and agrees to build an Omni-Wave device, allowing the two heroes to be spared.
Meanwhile back on Earth, the Avengers are figuring out their next course of action when they get a tip from Nick Fury of an impending attack. Not soon after H. Warren Craddock arrives with an army of Mandroids to capture the Avengers. As the Avengers battle against these humans in suits of high tech armor designed by Tony Stark, Triton of the Inhumans crawls out of a manhole, apparently arriving on some important mission...
