Taskmaster opens the issue with a thorough butt kicking of the majority of the team.
We see Crusader's internal monologue revealing himself to be a skrull.
Thor girl professes adoration for phobia/trauma.
Phobia/trauma is practicing his healing techniques by helping Cloud 9 mentally recover from killing the Hydra agent.
A new MVP clone is created to take on the weapon that Arsenal gave up.
From his inception the new clone once to assert that he IS the original.
Once the weapon is attached the clone downloads all the information regarding MVPs death and begins eliminating everyone associated with it.
Starting with Blitschtag(sp) and yellowjacket.
The clone bursts into the practice room and frags the entire team.
Taskmaster escapes by pointing out that he had nothing to do with MVPs death. The clone agrees after some tense moments and lets him go.
The Taskmaster then helps one the Crusader find his hand (lost in fight).
Thor girl enlists a reticent trauma/phobia's help to confront the, to them, unknown threat to the base. She is horribly - possibly terminally dispatched. She has a touching final word with Trauma/Phobia. Trauma breaks out a can of psychic whoopass but it turns out he is keying on the weapon's fear NOT the MVP clone's. He is soundly defeated.
The clone goes searching for the comatose Gauntlet to finish his vengeance and is mystified when he can't find him.
Our final shot is a fully functional gauntlet morphing into the very thing that Trauma had idnetified as the Arsenal weapon's greatest fear.
I am sure I got some of this wrong as
> The clone bursts into the practice room and frags the entire team.
Please tell me... was Diamondback part of this team..? Did she get killed..? (She better not have... harummph - Cas would NEVER forgive Dan Slott if that is the case..!!!)
Thanks in advance
