Ex Nihilo has created his perfect human out of god particles so that he would inherit the new Earth being developed on Mars. Abyss approaches Thor, who is still bound, with a lustful proposition of leaving together and locks lips with him. He promises to spare her when the reckoning comes.
Shortly after Ex Nihilo's "Adam" is born out of a pod, there is a flash of light and he rants in the language of the Builder's machine code. Ex Nihilo is struck by awe at the sight of his creation. His moment is cut short when Captain America attacks, backed by a small army of Avengers. A battle ensues as Ex Nihilo unleashes his genetic creations, and ultimately the Avengers prevail. Ex Nihilo and Abyss bow down to Captain Universe, for the Universe is revered as their deity. Aleph on the other hand attacks Captain Universe, who is no match for her massive amount of power, and in turn is obliterated.
The Avengers prepare to take Ex Nihilo's superhuman creation back to Earth with them asking Ex Nihilo and Abyss to do what they will on Mars and to leave Earth alone.
