Synopsis for "Double Cross"Edit

Namor the Sub-Mariner Vol 1 18 001
"Danny Rand" has changed into his true identity of Super Skrull. Misty Knight, who had been aiding "Rand" believing him to be her long lost boyfriend, is shocked. She tries to shoot Super Skrull with a hand gun,but the Skrull uses his flame power to melt the pistol. Super Skrull goes off to engage Namor, Namorita, and their party. Ward Meacham remains behind with Misty and Phoebe Marrs and tell them how the Super Skrull is going to detonate the Savage Land, erupt the coastal rim and destroy the earth. In return, Super Skrull had promised Ward Meacham power and the most beautiful Skrull girl on their planet. Phoebe Marrs laughs at Meacham and wonders aloud at how pretty this Skrull woman could be.

Back in New York, the Untied Nations gives Lord Kevin Plunder the rights to exploit and devlop his Savage Land. While at the Marrs Corporation, Desmond marrs arrives at work and finds Frank Castle, the Punihser, waiting for him behind his desk.

Super Skrull knocks out Namorita and urges Prince Namor to surrender. While Super Skrull explains his plan to Namor, Namorita regains conciousness, punches the Skrull, and escapes. Namor then engages Super Skrull hand to hand. However, Ward Meacham shows up and is going to destroy the detonating machines. He tells Super Skrull that he knows now that he would betray him. Again, the Skrull uses his flame power and kills Meacham on the spot. Namor also begins tearing up the machines with his super-strength. In outrage, the Skrull flies away. Namor and his party do not pursue him.

Back on the Skrull world, the legend is told of the beautiful fenake Skrull, Tennelle, who loved Super-Skrull so much that she pomised to marry a humaan. The Super-Skrull had never planned to betray Ward Meachum...

  • This issue contains a letters page, Alternating Currents. Letters are published from Shawn Scott, Henry Kong, Edwar Slatter, and James Angelini.
