The Hell Of A Mess wiki last edited by X35 on 04/26/13 03:40AM View full history

It’s slobberin’ time! The New Fantastic Four just made a wrong turn on the inter-dimensional super highway -- and they’ve landed in the middle of Zombie-verse! That’s right, True Believer, if the Black Panther, Storm, the Human Torch and the Thing can’t come up with the perfect escape plan, they’re going to be the next hors d'ouvres for Zombie Galacti intent on eating the entire universe! Spinning from the pages of the mega-hit MARVEL ZOMBIES! AND the return of Lyja?

The Fantastic Four find themselves on a Skrull planet after using the Golden Frogs to escape the Negative Zone. They also see something approaching in the distance. It is the "Marvel" Zombies fresh from devouring Galactus. The Skrulls think they are being invaded. The giant bug creature from the Negative Zone came with the Fantastic Four and gives Ben a good pounding into the pavement.

At a Skrull Military Command post, the Skrulls have detected the human, but decayed figures approaching. They detect an energy signature similar to that of Galactus. Fearing the destruction of their planet, they start the Galactus Protocols.

Meanwhile, the Zombies are getting excited as they approach the "Skrull meat." Zombie-Luke Cage and Zombie-Iron Man continue to bicker as Stark tries acting as if he is of an upper class. Zombie-Spider-Man then slams into a force field as the others laugh at him.

Ben is still fighting with the bug creature and slams him with a huge boulder. T'Challa tells the team to gather closer so they can use the frogs to get out of there. They see a big Skrull fleet overhead and wonder what they could be after as it seems a bit much for just them.

Zombie-Wolverine slices through the force field using his claws and power cosmic. The Skrulls fire missles at them which are easily blasted away with the Zombies' power cosmic. Although now they are feeling a little drained and really want to eat.

The Fantastic Four are still fighting and see Zombie-Cage and Zombie-Iron Man just as they are about to teleport away. They just barely manage to escape getting stomped on by Zombie-Hulk. They end up in some sort of cavern and are attacked by, what appears to be, Super Skrulls. As Johnny slams into an invisible wall, he looks up only to be shocked to see Lyja, the Skrull that posed as Alicia Master and was married to him.

After defeating the Skrulls, they discover that they were an attempt to duplicate the Super Skrull. They were only able to get one power per Skrull rather than combine all into one. As Lyja holds Johnny's life in her invisible hands, Black Panther tells them that they will need their help to stop the Zombies up above. Ben also quietly asks if the Skrull holding Johnny is Lyja.

The Zombies have eaten the entire city. The Skrulls in the command post are ready to drop a bomb on them. The Fantastic Four are brought up here and Black Panther says they can try to defeat the threat if they all work together. Johnny asks the female Skrull if her name is Lyja. She is surprised that he knows her name but doesn't know who he is. Johnny reminds her that they met when she was sent to Earth to spy on them. Lyja responds that she's never been to Earth. When Johnny asks how would he know her name, she is just disgusted to even be near him. Johnny wonders if she's had a memory wipe. Ben wonders if perhaps they're in some kinds "cockamamie alternate universe."

Ben and Johnny now have an idea they want to bring to the others. Black Panther suggests traveling to Earth in order to figure out what the Zombies are. All of this is cut short when Zombie-Cage smashes through the building hungry for fresh meat.
