As the war wages around them, Kang fights off the Time-Keepers who are trying to accelerate him into his Immortus incarnation, thereby ensuring their timeline. Rick sacrifices himself to destroy the Time-Keepers’ chrono-cannon. Captain America destroys the Forever Crystal, fearing its power to be too great. The armies of both divergent Avengers also disappear when the crystal is destroyed. Immortus is reborn, and Rick is saved when the Supreme Intelligence bonds him and Captain Marvel again. Finally, all the heroes are returned to their proper place and times. The Supreme Intelligence is also returned to captivity, in possession the reformed Forever Crystal, unbeknownst to everyone else.
