Baffled by his time on Earth, the Beyonder finds a deserted island and simply sits down to think. Even there, people take notice of him and begin to form a "thinking" cult based around his example. The Thing, who is shooting a movie on a nearby island, is disgusted by it all. After a series of visions (courtesy of Mephisto), he swims out to beat up on the Beyonder. Instead, he ends up protecting the Beyonder from an army of villains who have been sent to take him out and unintentionally thwarts Mephisto's plans of using a portion of the Beyonder's own power to defeat him.
