The Avengers travel to Vietnam to stop the Swordsman from attacking Monsieur Khruul on his own. They arrive at the temple of the slaughtered Priests of Pama to find that Khruul has unleashed a creature called The Star Stalker, which had been imprisoned by the pacifist sect.
The creature attacks the Avengers, and has them constantly on the defensive. The Star Stalker reveals that it is a being that travels from world to world ravaging each one and consuming it’s energies leaving it a lifeless husk, and that the Priests (revealed to be a pacifist faction of the Kree alien race that was exiled from the Kree homeworld of Hala) were the only beings in existence that learned the creatures weakness and were able to imprison him.
Mantis correctly deduces that the creatures weakness is heat from solar rays, and it is easily destroyed by Visions solar energy blasts. After the battle is over, the revelations revealed by the Star Stalker add an extra layer of mystery to the origins of Mantis.
“You’re Gonna Live Forever!” / VIVO PER L’ ETERNITA’
