The Creature Called...SWARM!
Hercules and Iceman are forced to fight against their headquarters' own malfunctioning security system due to the shoddy workmanship of their contractors. Meanwhile Natasha, Laynia, and Johnny are at the docks to see off Ivan, who claims to be returning to Russia only to seek out his son but secretly has an ulterior motive due to a mysterious call he received from Nick Fury. As the ship leaves, another man carrying a briefcase arrives and the docks come under attack by several giant mechanical bees under the command of Swarm, who uses the distraction to corner and kill the man over the briefcase, but is unable to take it because it's been coated in repellent. Swarm flees along with his drones, leaving the Champions to discover the body of the man and find that he was an Interpol agent. They reconvene at their headquarters just as Angel flies in, panicking about an incoming swarm of bees blacking out the sky over the city.
