On a beautiful day along the Hudson River, Iron Man and the Human Torch participate in a training exercise for West Point cadets. But the exercise is interrupted by the sudden appearance of Rogue!

Apparently, an alien race called the Coterie has abducted the super-heroes of Earth and transported them to a massive starship. And now under the influence of tiny nanites, the Earth's super-heroes are ready to battle one another for the grand prize! However one hero is unaffected by the nanites: the Invincible Iron Man!

While the losers of the matches are dumped into the strange bio-system where Iron Man and Psylocke are currently trapped. However thanks to a hex thrown during Wanda's fight, Lockdown and Rosetta Stone -- two heroes from the negative zone -- appear in the bio-system and join forces with Earth's heroes. And that becomes very, very important once Psylocke realizes the alien Coterie are actually: the Brood! Cameo appearances by Brother Royal, Shadowcat, and Warbird. 32 pages. Cover price $2.50.
