Thor and Nefaria battle. Nefaria wants Thor's hammer, as he believes it will make him immortal. Thor is losing, Nefaria is about to pick up the hammer, when the Vision shows up. However, Nefaria is able to hit Vision, even when he is intangible. The battle with Thor continues, then, Professor Sturdy, who gave Nefaria his powers, before Nefaria attempted to kill him, shows up and tell Nefaria that with his new powers, Sturdy included accelerated aging, so that he will die in two days, and only Sturdy knows how to stop it. Nefaria goes berserk, saying he will take as many people to the greave as possible. The Vision, whilst vituperating humans, flies up one mile, goes to his maximum density, then drops down on nefaria. Nefaria is knocked unconscious. Sturdy, before he dies, told Hank Pym that he had lied to Nefaria about dying in two days, and Sturdy also told Pym how to return Nefaria to normal. The last page shows a man who thinks he is Wanda and Pietro's father catching a steamer to America.
