Synopsis:
Deep in the Latverian Embassy, Doom has captured the Fantastic Four and is trying to draw his real body together using mystic energies that span the cosmos. When this power fails, Doom brings the Beyonder to restore his old body but the Beyonder isn't about to do any favors for someone who once stole his power. Reed talks some sense into the demi-god and the Beyonder splits Doom from Norman McArthur and sends the villain away to fight in the first Secret War.
