People cower in fear in front of them, but they are saved by the Spaceknights who are the heroes of Galador. The Spaceknights begin to fight the Aleph’s and take most of them out, but not before Captain Universe appears, and tells two citizens of Galador that there is no hope even with the Spaceknights. The Builders then destroy the planet disintegrating everyone, and everything on it, including Captain Universe.

Black Bolt then forces the outrider out of his mind, and the Outrider escapes even after some fighting, and several dead Inhumans.
