Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Captain America and the Mighty Avengers #5 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

The Blue Marvel contemplates the Neutral Zone, wondering if he will ever find his son Kevin, lost in its infinity. He returns to his undersea science lab where Spider-Man is conducting tests on Spectrum--by having her turn into a copy of the Blue Marvel (this freaks out the Marvel). Spidey turns over the data he gathered and excuses himself. As Marvel and Monica wonder about the extent of her new powers, they are interrupted: Spidey is under attack by an invading villain….


Elsewhere, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones are meeting with Jason Quantrell, CEO of Cortex Corporation. The big boss is explaining the idea of corporate ownership of superheroes, allowing him to alter them to his will….


White Tiger and Power Man arrive at an abandoned sugar refinery, having traced the killer of Gideon Mace to the building. Entering they are attacked by the monstrous construct Quickfire has built from Mace’s heart. White Tiger sees the face of the man who killed her parents and lashes out--as the Quickfire monster waits….


Spider-Man is battling Doctor Positron, who is Blue Marvel’s other son. When Spectrum arrives she blinds the two combatants with a power flash. Settling down they all have a civilized talk as Max reveals that he has heard his brother’s voice, warning them of those from Beyond….


As Power Man fights the Mace monster, Quickfire sneaks up on White Tiger and pierces her though with deadly claws. Captain America, She-Hulk, and Kaluu are on their way to the rescue but arrive to discover that Tiger and PM have turned into the same sort of creature as Quickfire….


Back at Cortex, Quantrill reveals that he and the company have been taken over, removing his face to reveal the Beyond Corporation….
