Synopsis:
Despite their "Image-Inducer", HYDRA is unable to get Fury to pass on info about Stark's "Braino-Saur". Stark tells SHIELD's directors that the "Braino-Saur" is designed for one purpose-- to disarm HYDRA's Betratron Bomb while in orbit above the Earth! Agent G goes to see Fury-- then helps him escape, although he refuses to promise not to harm her father, the Supreme Hydra. Dum Dum, Gabe and a crack SHIELD squad use the captured HYDRA saucer to locate HYDRA HQ. In the Imperial Industries International board room, chairman Farrington refuses to stop the meeting, despite tremors in the building-- until they get so violent, everyone flees the room. Below, Supreme Hydra learns his daughter helped Fury escape. He sends a "Hunter" robot after Fury. Only when Dugan and his men arrive on the roof and attack does he finally send in the "Tiger" squad (assassins), knowing it will mean his own daughter's death...
