But the Avengers don't know how the Kree plan to carry out their revenge…nor where they are hiding! Auspiciously though, a SHIELD spy satellite detects an omni-wave transmission in upstate New York! Could this be where Admiral Galen Kor and the clandestine Kree base are located? The Black Widow sends the Black Knight, Crystal, Deathcry, Hercules, and the Vision to investigate!
