Synopsis for "The Thanos Imperative (Part 2 of 6)"Edit

At the Fault, Nova, accompanied by Quasar, is taxed to capacity fighting off the creatures of the Cancerverse. On the side, Worldmind is coordinating his efforts and asks if he's distracted because of Namorita's capture. Nova answers that he's already focused. He and Quasar then go to assist the Kree flagship, where Triton is fighting his hardest, as Queen Medusa was already evacuated. He is nearly ambushed by a Cancerverse creature, when the Silver Surfer tears through it. It is then revealed that Galactus, Aegis, Tenebrous and the Celestials have joined the fight.

In the Cancerverse, the Guardians of the Galaxy are fighting this universe's version of the Defenders in an effort to prevent them from raising the alarm. Unfortunately, they find that the inhabitants of this universe can't die. Thanos gets up and unleashes a powerful blast that vaporizes the Defenders, meaning that only he, as the Avatar of Death, can bring a permanent end to these creatures. Star-Lord is particularly happy that after all the suffering that Thanos inflicted on their universe, it's a good thing it's happening to someone else. Then suddenly, this universe's iteration of the Vision appears before them, stating that he means no harm.

Meanwhile, back in the normal universe, in an unknown part of space, Major Victory is being dragged aboard a ship by Revengers Iron Man and Ms. Marvel. He proves resistant but is subdued by Lord Mar-Vell. Major is then thrown into a cell with Namorita and other aliens. Apparently, Mar-Vell is searching for individuals who are anomalies, things not of this space-time, to enact something called Necropsy.

Back at the Fault, it has become apparent to Quasar that if the cosmic abstracts have joined this battle, then there's no doubt about the magnitude of this war. The Surfer explains that the beings of the Cancerverse seek to spread to other universes and end the cycles of death and life. Suddenly, something massive emerges from the Fault, something bigger than the Celestials. The Surfer describes it as a blasphemy, a heresy... the Galactus Engine
