The Kree Hero and the Avengers: Our story kicks off with Captain Marvel (or Mar-Vell, if you want to get Kree about it) making his grand return to Earth after a stint in the Negative Zone. But hey, every superhero needs a little R&R, right? Well, not quite. Mar-Vell's arrival is less than glamorous as he finds himself captured by a motley crew of Avengers—Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and the Vision—with an assist from his old buddy Rick Jones. Talk about a not-so-warm welcome!

A Skrull Surprise: Hold on tight, folks, because the plot thickens faster than Aunt May's famous gravy. We soon learn that Mar-Vell got up to some intergalactic hanky-panky with none other than the Skrull princess Annelle during his Earthly escapades. Why, you ask? Well, it turns out Mar-Vell's been exposed to more radiation than a spider in a nuclear power plant. Yikes! But fear not, the Avengers and their handy dandy scientist friend, the Vision, are here to save the day by draining that excess radiation.

The Baxter Building and a Flashback: Wait a minute, what's that alarm blaring from the Baxter Building? Our intrepid Avengers arrive at the scene and find Mar-Vell using a portal to the Negative Zone—courtesy of Mr. Fantastic—to rescue Rick Jones. Chaos ensues as Annihilus, the Zone's resident creepy-crawly, tries to escape. In the midst of the mayhem, Mar-Vell makes off with an Avengers quinjet, prompting the team to realize he's in deep radiation trouble. Oh, the audacity! But fear not, dear readers, for there's more madness to come.

Enter Ronan and Prehistoric Predicaments: Hold on tight, because Ronan the Accuser crashes the party like a cosmic wrecking ball. He's an outlawed Kree with a master plan called "Plan Atavus," which involves devolving Earth to prehistoric times. How dino-mite! Ronan even manages to devolve poor Henry Pym and the research scientists into cavemen, who develop an inexplicable fascination with Janet Pym. Talk about a primal attraction! But fear not, the Sentry self-destructs, and our heroes emerge victorious. Phew!

The Fallout and the Unraveling: Now it's time for some consequences. The existence of Mar-Vell and his cosmic escapades is exposed, leading to the formation of the "Alien Activities Commission." Senator H. Warren Craddock leads the charge, demanding that the Avengers hand over Mar-Vell. But hey, these heroes aren't about to give up their pal! Amidst public unrest, the Avengers face picketers and vandals at their Mansion. Things are looking grim, but fear not, for the tale takes a turn.

Skrulls and Cows: Oh My! Just when you thought things couldn't get any weirder, the Avengers face an utterly absurd adversary: cows! Yes, you read that right. Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and the Vision are attacked by seemingly innocent bovines who transform into Skrulls, those shape-shifting scoundrels. Meanwhile, Mar-Vell finds himself lured by a deceptive Carol Danvers, who's not who she appears to be. And guess what? She's the Super-Skrull! Talk about a mind-boggling twist.

Mandroids, Attilan, and Heroic Rescues: Hold onto your capes, folks, because the Avengers are about to face off against Mandroids and team up with the Inhumans. They join forces to confront the mad Maximus and his Kree allies in the land of Attilan. But fear not, dear readers, for our heroes emerge triumphant, restoring order and kicking some extraterrestrial butt along the way.

The Final Showdown: Prepare for an interstellar showdown of epic proportions as Mar-Vell finds himself thrust into the heart of the Skrull Empire. The Avengers arrive just in time to hold off the alien fleet, while Rick Jones, armed with newfound powers, unleashes a wave of Golden Age heroes. Meanwhile, Senator Craddock's true Skrull form is revealed, resulting in a less-than-pleasant demise. Our heroes return to Earth, where they find their reputation restored and justice served.
