Yuji explains to Wolverine that Deathwatch is after his son, Sean, as well as Logan, himself. In this issue, Deathwatch’s men capture Yuji’s daughter, Brigitte, in order to lure Sean Watanabe (who goes by the codename Brass) and Wolverine into their clutches. They’ve also kidnapped Jack D’auria – a friend of Dan Ketch (aka Ghost Rider).

Imbued with the power of Mrinhä, Joe Trinity launches an assault on Dallas in the Slug’s home. But, before he loses total control to the powerful entity, Poison steps in to stop him. Her power tempts Mrinhä into leaving Joe’s body in the hopes of possessing hers – but she is able to finally defeat the mysterious force.

The Human Torch arrives at the Baxter Building and is attacked by the Mad Thinker’s FF androids. Meanwhile, the Thing learns that the green alien that appeared last issue calls itself the Exile. It is trapped within a web of “opposite” energy that could explode if it makes contact with the alien. The Exile reveals that the events of the past few days were arranged by him to test these super-powered beings to ensure that they had the ability to rescue him.

Spider-Man in “Slow Burn

A firefighter named Jerry steps into Roxie’s Diner and notices the latest Daily Bugle headline. True to form, it implicates Spider-Man may have been responsible for a building being burnt. But, Jerry was there – so he knows the truth. He then recounts the events of how he and Spider-Man stopped Blowtorch, the highest paid arsonist on the East Coast.

So, we finally get some insight into what Deathwatch is after, in this issue. The Poison solo ended without providing any insight into the mysterious force named Mrinhä. It seems like there’s more to be discovered about the Exile from the Fantastic Four story and the Spider-Man tale was kind of fun but nothing deep.
