Synopsis
The heroes on the Kree/Skrull flagship are stunned when Hulkling orders the deployment of the Pyre, a weapon that will detonate the sun. He then orders the heroes removed, and Mur-G'nn sends them back to Earth, specifically to Wiccan's apartment. Elsewhere, Mantis tries reasoning with her son to stop the Cotati invasion, but she is unsuccessful, and he takes control of the Hulk. After hearing what Hulkling plans, Wiccan is convinced that it's not Teddy they are now dealing with.
