|Story/s:||The Dark Is Rising|
Castle Tarnala, the far edge of the Andromeda Galaxy: 3 beings talk about the demise of the Skrull empire and now it’s the Kree’s turn. They appear to all be Skrulls of half skrulls. The eldest, M’ryn the Magus, orders the other 2 away. Alone he is spoken to by Moridun, the Ghost Wizard of the fifth Cosmos, about the secret he kept about the prophecy that with it’s fulfilment M’ryn would die. And then Moridun takes his life, absorbing his magic.
Back on earth on Avengers Island Dr Toni Ho is examining POD. She wants to talk with the pilot inside it but it says she can’t, that they are alone together. The conversation upsets POD. A giant spaceship de-cloaks above the island. The ship appears to be a blend of Kree and Skrull technology. They call upon the island that they are here for Dorrek VIII aka Hulkling. POD still upset fires on the craft. The ships loses it communications so they resort to kidnapping Hulkling by magical teleport. Wiccan tries to stops the teleport but can’t and in desperation teleports up with him.
Just before this Songbird had found a listening device in her quarters. At first they suspect Hawkeye, but he swears it wasn’t him which means they might have a spy in their midst.
The launch Avenger Three (Deep space cruiser) to retrieve their team mates.
At an unknown location Wiccan, Hulkling and the 3 skrulls land and Teddy (Hulkling) is asked to enter “the Light of Truth”. Teddy does without hesitation and finds a sword inside it. The three Skrulls kneel before him as he hold the sword.
One of the skrulls is thrown back at the thought that Wiccan is a “warper” …. maybe there is more to Wiccan’s powers they anyone realises. So Hulkling is now King of Space lol. So there’s a spy …. now there’s an old constantly reused plot device. Oh well, lets see how it pans out.
And what’s up with POD not being able to release it’s pilot Aikku Jokinen. It sort of sounds like they may have bonded physically or such.
