We get a flashback to the Orb and company's first visit to the Watcher's home throughout the issue. The door opens in response to the Orb's presence, but the group runs straight into the Watcher, prompting Midas and Exterminatrix to attack. The Mindless Ones keep the Watcher busy while Midas and Exterminatrix raid the armory and flee. The Orb is in awe of the Watcher, but realizes he's holding back because he's seen something that scares him. He shoots the Watcher in the head...
In the present day, Nick Fury takes on the assembled Avengers, quickly taking out the Hulk and Luke Cage with the tech he has assembled over the years. Iron Man, Wolverine, Falcon, and Black Widow soon follow. Captain America tries to talk some sense into Fury, but Fury is fully aware of what he has done and what he is doing, and offers no apologies. Cap sicks Thor on Fury, who actually manages to do some damage.
Meanwhile, the remaining heroes on Fury's satellite bicker as Dr. Strange tries to break into Fury's inner sanctum. They are interrupted by the Orb, who is brimming with power. The Orb states that he stole all the Watcher's secrets when he invaded his home, and unleashes an energy wave at the heroes.
Back at the fight, Fury reveals that he somehow has access to the Watcher's secrets. He can see that Thor has a sister, and whispers something else in Thor's ear. Thor drops his hammer, which crashes into the moon. He cannot lift it back up. Iron Man again tries to intervene, but Fury uses an override code to send Tony's armor on a course back to Earth. Fury retrieves the Watcher's eyes and heads back to the moon. Midas and Exterminatrix land on the moon just as the Orb makes his approach to the Watcher's home.
We see one final flashback, as the real Nick Fury approaches the Watcher's home after seeing the results of the villains' attack. He finds the Watcher wounded and missing an eye. He asks the Watcher to tell him what happened.
Returning again to the present day, Fury enters the Watcher's home as a group of other Watchers observe from above.
