With the forces of the Serpent spreading terror throughout the world, mankind has only one hope...themselves. Speedball must find a way to unite the people he's inspired to face their own fear...but is he leading them to victory, or death? An all-new team of heroes -- X-23, POWER MAN, AMADEUS CHO, THUNDERSTRIKE and SPIDER-GIRL find themselves trapped on a Hell-Carrier on a collision course with Honolulu to one-up Pearl Harbor! PLUS: Milwaukee's citizens have turned against the Great Lakes Avengers, even as the GLA faces its most lethal threat to date: The “hammer-wielding” Asbestos Man!
