Strucker announces that the impregnable dome over Hydra Island will keep them safe from the "Death Spore" plague, and plans to use Fury's body as the basis for an army of HYDRA androids to "police" the world, once he's dead from the Alpha Ray beam. But Fury escapes! As SHIELD searches the Heli-Carrier for the bomb with no result, Fury, "playing it by ear", takes on one group of HYDRA thugs after another, until Strucker faces him one-on-one. Thanks to his deadly "Satan Claw", Strucker gains the upper hand, and it looks like it might be the end...!; In order to pass his powers onto his desciple, The Ancient One allows Zom to defeat him. Before Strange's eyes, his mentor is fused with one of the giant rocks at Stonehenge, but not before he utters a warning. A battle ensues, until Strange manages to rip the forelock of hair from Zom's head-- at which point, an aura of evil is unleashed, and Zom declares that all is lost! From the horizon, a booming voice is heard, and Zom is banished. Strange turns to behold the towering sight of The Living Tribunal-- who declares that because of Strange's actions, Earth must be "totally destroyed"!
