Death Grip demands that Walter Lawson cure him of his condition. He won't listen to Mar-Vell's insistence that he only assumed Lawson's identity, but he does not have Lawson's knowledge, and so can't help. Deathgrip gives Mar-Vell 48 hours. If he does not find a cure, his observatory hostages will die. Mar-Vell turns to Tony Stark and Henry Pym for technical help.
Contains a fan letter from Kurt Busiek.
