One of the epochal annuals of the bronze age! A stormy night at Avengers Mansion is interrupted by the sudden arrival of Captain Marvel and Moondragon.

However, the mightiest heroes on Earth intercept the fleet and set their sights on destroying Thanos' instrument of stellar genocide! Tragically though, Warlock falls in battle vs. the mad Titan.

    "Fifth Column" Secret Invasion Tie-in. Guest-starring the Fantastic Four. Script by Roger Stern. Art by John Byrne (breakdowns) and Kyle Baker (finishes). Cover by Kerry Gammill and Kyle Baker. Story continues from Avengers 260. The Avengers have successfully blocked Nebula's plan to destroy the Andromeda Galaxy. But due to interference from the Beyonder, the self-described granddaughter of Thanos has escaped! However, General Zedrao permits Starfox and his teammates to use the imperial power asteroid to pursue Nebula. On the way to the power asteroid, the Avengers make a pit stop in the 1930's…skrull-style! While visiting with the "gangster" Skrulls, Earth's Mightiest Heroes discover that a major power struggle is underway on the asteroid…centering around a device called the hyperwave bomb! Can the Avengers separate the good skrulls from the bad skrulls? Maybe the Fantastic Four will help! But either way, it's going to be a red-letter day for the Skrull empire! Story continues in Avengers 261. Cameo appearances by Firelord and Raksor. Flashback cameo by Galactus.
