Heroes and villains each find themselves in spaceships. They witness the creation of Battleworld.

The heroes are transported to the planet and turn on Magneto. The villains are also moved to Battleworld and Doom tries to reason with them concerning the Beyonder's wishes. When no one is willing to listen, he flies off to talk to Reed but is shot down by Kang. The heroes reach Doom but get blasted.
