On Battleworld Black Bolt and his rebellions are being push back Medusa, under heavy fire Black bolt, Naja and Mega-Rad give one last all-out attack, Naja jumps into fly but is quickly shot down so Black Bolt tells Mega-Rad to attack from underground, the plan seems to be working at first as the take out many of Medusa’s men, on the top of a rocky hill top Medusa and Gorgon are watching. On her orders Gorgon attacks Mega-Rad, causing him to lose his hulk abilities. Meanwhile in New York City the Quiet Room is under attack by Medusa’s men as well the other Inhumans are under the same heavy fire, Murdoch and Karnak are holding their own, when Nur, who has Kamala Khan with him enters the Quiet Room he too jumps into the fray and takes out a handful of men with his Photokinetic Projection ability. But like Black Bolt and the others things turn sour when Auran sneaks behind Nur and tells him to put his hands

Back on Battleworld Black Bolt tells Triton and the others to get ready to move out due to their heavy hitters being taken out, so under is orders the run for it as he stays to take on Medusa by himself, he process to tell her that his plan is to turn himself over if she would let the others free, this surprises Medusa.

Meanwhile in New York Murdoch, Karnak and Nur get the upper hand again on Auran but when Karnak uses a device to escape but instead of escaping they trap themselves, we then go back to Triton, Naja, and Mega-Rad using Eldrac the Door to return back to the Quiet room but they quickly get a feeling that something is wrong with the gate to the room, it’s no longer there, with no gate the crew wonder just where they will end up.

The issue ends with Auran capturing Murdoch and company and Medusa capturing Black Bolt, Vuran states that the resistance is shattered and Medusa says that things are just getting started.

This issues focuses on the fights between the two teams, in other words it was a closing chapter for the show down between the New Attilan’s inhumans and Black Bolts Inhumans. We do get some insight on Mega-Rad’s power, it seems he has a limit to how much damage he can take before running out of gamma power, I’m interested to see Mega-Rad’s evolution in the future.

Jennifer Walters Is….The She Hulk! A stalwart Avenger, valued member of the FF, savior of the world on more than one occasion, she’s also a killer attorney with a pile of degrees and professional respect. A 7-foot-tall drink of cool, emerald water, she’s tough enough to knock out Galactus with one punch (possibly?) and has a heart bigger than the moon. But juggling cases and kicking bad guy butt is starting to be a little more complicated than she anticipated. With a new practice, a new paralegal and a mounting number of super villains she’s racking up as personal enemies, She-Hulk might have bitten off a little more than she can chew…but she just calls that that Tuesday.
