The crew of the Icarus One was changed forever in space. Then they did the one thing good government employees never do: they went public. Now standing between these four mutated astronauts and a firing squad is Ultimate Nick Fury!
Hyperion. Power Princess. Doctor Spectrum. Nighthawk. The Blur. Once they were a team of super heroes - a Squadron Supreme - but the greatest of the heroes vanished without a trace, leaving a beateen and damaged world behind them. Five years have passed.
Disgraced spy Nick Fury and two ex-Squadron members - the probability-altering Arcanna Jones and criminally genius Emil Burbank - have tracked down the four astronauts of NASA's Icarus One mission. Fury finds that Kathy and Jon Mora, Ted Munn, and Peter Boyer have been transformed into superhumans...and they're not the only ones.
Whatever caused the change in Icarus One crew has been granting strange abilities to seemingly random individuals. Burbank sees an opportunity, and Fury quickly finds himself in a superhuman arms race against his former ally. While the now-masked Burbank pursues the dangerously powerful Wolf and Mangog - getting his hands on the latter - Fury recruits millionaire tucker Ford, the armored Biogeneral; Old Soldier, the embodiment of dead American soldiers from every war; and Nell Ruggles, a teen-aged misfit with spider-like powers.
Fury consolidates his power, deputizing the Icarus One crew as members of his old spy organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. Holed up in an undisclosed location, Fury awaits the reaction from the powers that be...while unbeknownst to anyone, Edith Friebert - one of the few remaining Squadron members, Inertia - finds a shocking surprise in a Cleveland alley...
The crew of the Icarus One found something in space, something that changed them forever. Then they did the one thing good government employees never do: they went public. Now standing between these four mutated astronauts and a firing squad is Ultimate Nick Fury and his newly assembled Squadron Supreme! It’s Fury’s day of reckoning…leading up to a last page you WON’T believe! Part 6 (of 6
