Nick Fury; Cliff Randall; The Others (aliens); Warden (ESP Division)
Fury learns that an asteroid is being drawn off-course directly toward Earth, with impact only hours away. Fury and ace pilot Cliff Randall race to the Central Andes, hoping to find whatever is pulling the asteroid from its normal orbit. There, they find a hidden base built inside a mountain run by a group of beings called The Others. Twenty years earlier, the tyrant of their dimension, facing revolt, set off an Impact Inducer which would destroy everything. Now, to duplicate the exact conditions that opened the dimensional gateway, they plan to use the asteroid to destroy the entire Earth.
