 Assault on Galactus! 
Synopsis for "Assault on Galactus!"

The battle-wounded Colossus exits the rustic building he is healing inside to see Galactus starting up his machine to devour the planet. He re-enters the building to tend to the unconscious Zsaji. He tells her he loves her and goes out to help stop Galactus. Meanwhile, the X-Men and Magneto try to attack Galactus. An energy ball appears and blocks them from continuing up the mountain. In the village, Hawkeye, Captain Marvel and Wasp watch the X-Men try to battle it when suddenly a large blast on the mountain makes them think the X-Men have been defeated.

At Doombase, the remaining heroes try to return to the battle that is going on on the mountainside. They take a ship from the base and begin to travel to the battle. Hulk is distraught over his new "intelligence" of Bruce Banner's mind in his body. Ben Grimm suddenly regains his powers as the Thing. Iron Man ponders what Spider-Woman's true intentions are. Spider-Man meanwhile, is glad to have his webs back since he has donned the new "black costume". Mister Fantastic thinks of a reason as to why they are all there in the first place. They reach the mountain and are hit by Galactus' beams. They crash into Colossus, who braces their ship from impact.

The heroes exit the ship and begin their fight to reach Galactus. As they get closer, Mister Fantastic realizes a meaning to this conflict and tells the heroes NOT to stop Galactus. He says the only way to stop Galactus is to let him win. In doing this the Beyonder will grant him his wish of freedom from his planet-consumption hunger. As they all agree to stop fighting, Reed suddenly vanishes along with Galactus and the construct Galactus built. Reed appears on Galactus' homeworld which is housed in his spaceship in space. There Galactus shows Reed a vision of his pregnant wife and their child, Franklin. Then Galactus tells Reed to listen to what he is about to tell him.

Inside the containment unit in the Doombase, Doctor Doom determines that he needs to get to Galactus' homeworld and he breaks free of his cell. He ignores the pleas of the other villains who are still trapped and releases only one other, Klaw.

On the mountainside, Colossus frees the trapped X-Men from beneath some rubble. They all journey into the village and Colossus realizes Zsaji is awake and runs not to him, but to Human Torch. While they are all discussing what to do, Mister Fantastic reappears in the village. He says Galactus told him that Reed was a "Champion of Life". This emboldens him not to fight Galactus. The Avengers decide otherwise. Galactus reappears on the mountain and turns on the machine again. The Avengers then head back toward the mountain. Doctor Doom watches the battle from inside the Doombase where he cuts up Klaw into tiny disc-shaped lenses.

The battle continues and Mister Fantastic realizes he must stop Galactus to be able to see his son born. He tells the heroes to stop Galactus from leaving and they cannot. He flies off to his homeworld where he begins to devour it and create a huge energy field. Doom sees this as his opportunity to "steal" the energy of that homeworld by using the Klaw-discs as a siphon...
