Merlyn and Roma look on with concern as their cosmic game begins to spiral out of control. The James Jaspers of Earth-616 begins his campaign to eradicate all superheroes. Thanks to his mutant ability to warp reality, his plans begin to come to fruition very quickly. Captain Britain tries to convince Linda to resume her duties as Captain U.K. but she is terrified of a repeat of the madness Jaspers created in her home reality and runs off, unfortunately, right into the waiting arms of the Fury.
