|Story/s:||No Man Can Outrun Death|
Boston is under some sort of attack. Stark offers Steve his help but says he’ll be fine for now.
While fighting giant bees and mutant looking dogs and pretty much just playing defence they have no time to analyse the situation. Synapse tries to shut the animals down but can’t sense a brain to shut down. A Woman with a pram and an infected baby. Synapse uses her powers to boosts the babies immune system long enough for Quicksilver to run the mother and baby to hospital.
Doctor Voodoo finds a man who’s body has been used like soil by the plant growth. Johnny (The Human Torch) takes the body and flies off looking for help. Some brains to analyse what’s happening.
Quicksilver says he’s found someone of interest but runs off without them, saying he’ll leave a trail. Meanwhile at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Human Torch delivers the body to a group of ‘nerds’ to analyse.
The rest of the team continue to fight there way though the plant animals. Synapse tries to communicate with Quicksilver but gets nothing.
The man seemingly responsible for the chaos and destruction makes himself known to the mayor as she broadcasts a message to the people of Boston that the situation is contained for the moment. He disagrees. Ranting about how it’s humanities turn to become the cattle.
Quicksilver attacks on his own. But the man responsible for all that is happening (calling himself the Shredded Man) counterattacks by poisoning him with a vine. Quicksilver falters and the Shredded Man feeds him to his giant plant.
Meanwhile in 2087, Boston. A man and his machine investigate the situation. All intelligent life has been wiped from the Earth except a handful of Inhumans who have no idea what happened. They mention something called the M-Pox which might be related to the Kree.
They find a old newspaper marking the events, so now they have a year and date. It’s Cable and he says “Stryfe will have to wait, we’re going back to 2016 to fix what the Avengers got wrong”
Looks like the Avengers were out of their league…. looks like all the heroes of the Earth were if they ere all wiped out in 2087.
So looks like Cable and some form of advanced AI to the rescue. I wonder if Cable will become a member of the team after saving them? We’ll see.
