Lockjaw teleports himself, Medusa, and Black Bolt into the empty headquarters of the Fantastic Four. Attilan is apparently endangered by powerful air quakes, and the three were seeking the FF's help. Black Bolt orders Medusa and Lockjaw to return to Attilan, and he locates Alicia Masters' address in a phone book and goes to find her. She tells him that Ben is getting his drivers' license renewed, and Alicia and BB head for the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Also at the DMV is Jarvis (the Avenger's butler), who is helping Judy Parks get a Drivers' License. Miss Parks previously been saved by Jarvis when she fell off Graviton's floating island (Avengers 159) and Jarvis caught her in a quinjet. In any case, a man in a trench coat accosts her, and Jarvis finds himself weighted to the ground and unable to help. Black Bolt (in a trench coat and hat) and Alicia are just pulling up, and Bolt rushes to help, pulling Alicia along. Ben comes out to see some guy in a coat pulling Alicia, and clobbers him. With Bolt's coat knocked loose, Ben quickly realizes his mistake.
Ben and Bolt head to rescue the woman, and Jarvis departs with Alicia to see her home. Rushing down the alley, the man has removed his coat and revealed himself to be an amnesiac Graviton. He's panicked because his body seems to be flickering in and out of existence, and he has no clue who he is or what's happening to him. Ben and Black Bolt arrive, and a short fight follows. While Graviton is monetarily distracted, Judy reveals his origin and the events of his Avengers appearance. As she talks, it comes back to Graviton, and he realizes that he is changing physically, becoming a living black hole. He morphs into a fifty foot high "sentient pocket universe, his gravitational aura increased to such proportions that it warps space around him rendering him visible only by the distortions he creates."
Graviton asks Black Bolt for sanctuary in Attilan. Bolt considers the obviously unstable man for a few seconds, and when he refuses Graviton's request, Graviton goes on a rampage...
