This story follows from where Future Imperfect ended, and adds more details as well.
Char, a girl who was the last sex slave the Maestro had selected, is back with her old father Boz. When Char is molested by a rude man named Lothar, Boz calls upon the gods to strike him down. Suddenly, Captain America's shield which had been thrown by the Hulk (with Rick Jones ashes on it), comes down and beheads Lothar. Grabbing the shield, the old man regains the people's respect, and Char whispers to her father that she maybe carrying the Maestro's child.
