The first counteroffensive against HYDRA did not go as well as planned for the X-men as they managed to rescue Colossus but lost Angel in the process. Unknown to them, Colossus and Nightcrawler are now at Emma Frost's place, as they sought her help concerning Colossus' wounds. She promised to use the vast resources of the Hellfire Club to hide the now fugitive Colossus and find out what happened in Ryker's Island and what consequences it will bring... for a price, of course.
For Black Widow, though, the operation was a success, as she managed to cripple Ryker's Island and started what she calls 'a wave of destruction and retribution' against HYDRA. Of course, she gained more attention from Strucker and Kasandra, who have grown impatient with the Avengers, as they have not yet capture the fugitives. They are putting pressure on Thor, Tony, Banner and Hawkeye to do their job and apprehend Romanoff, Rogers and Hill.
Meanwhile, Doctor Otto Octavius and his assistant Gwen Stacy has begun their work for Frost International but were attacked -- in an attempt to kidnap -- by A.I.M. Octavius and Stacy managed to fend off the attack and this prompted the White Queen to increase security for the top secret research Octavius is conducting for Frost.
At Stark Tower, Tony Stark and Katherine Pryde have been discussing the possibility of creating a walking, talking A.I. automaton. In Tony's view, he wants to create it to see if it could be done, as his ego would be lifted if he manages to create something so complex. He wants Katherine to work with him on it and is thinking of asking Illya Rezanov and Bruce Banner to also be part of his pet project.
Black Widow has called for a meeting of the Alliance, with the Fantastic Four, the Secret Avengers, the Avengers and the X-men, in order to start coordinating their actions against HYDRA and to formulate a plan of attack. Already, a sort of 'joint' operation was carried out by Johnny Storm and Captain America, but Romanoff wants a more coordinated effort between the groups. However, Nick Fury has sent his other attack dog, Daisy Johnson, to join Romanoff and her Secret Avengers and to keep him informed of what is happening. New antagonists and new heroes have begun to take sides and everything is heading for an all out war.
And the Superhuman Registration Act still looms in the horizon...
From this point on, we write our own MCU... would you BELIEVE IN HEROES or would you accept that compliance shall be rewarded? It is up to you...
