Meanwhile, a giant creature grows from the destroyed building. Meanwhile, the Richards' home explodes, killing Reed Richards and his family. In New York, Sue Storm is greeted by the Thing when she enters the Baxter Building. They discuss the breakup of the Fantastic Four, and that Sue and Reed are no longer a couple.

The alien retreats, leaving Fury to explain why he's still alive to the heroes. Human Torch notices a giant creature attacking the Baxter Building and leaves to help, meeting Thing in mid-air. Teaming up with Invisible Woman, they force the creature to retreat. After surveying the destroyed Baxter Building, they decide to get Reed Richards' help. Spider-Woman returns to her home to see if the ROXXON attack is on the news, but instead sees reports of the similar attack on the Baxter Building. She's attacked by the alien that attacked Fury, but is able to escape. Ben, Sue and Johnny find the Richards' home destroyed where the police tell them the family is dead.

SYNOPSIS:
At the Triskelion, Carol Danvers oversees SHIELD's response to the recent attacks on the Baxter Building, ROXXON, and seemingly random city corners. She excuses herself to the bathroom, where Nick Fury demands to know why she tried to have him killed. She denies it, and he points out that she let all of these attacks happen on her watch. As May is on the phone with Spider-Man, Iceman notices the alien in the front yard. He ices up and attacks, telling Gwen and May to get as far away as possible. A SHIELD agent enters the women's bathroom to find Fury and Danvers pointing guns at each other, and tells them about a recent attack in Queens. The two order a battalion of Hulkbuster agents to the area. Iceman battles the alien and is able to contain it in ice just as Spider-Man, Thing, Invisible Woman and Human Torch arrive. Iceman tells Spider-Man that May and Gwen are safe as Invisible Woman contains the alien in a force bubble. As SHIELD arrives Thing begins to glow and emit energy from the cracks between his rocky skin.

After Johnny leaves, Sue tells the unconscious Thing that she loves him too, she just didn't know how to tell him. He suddenly goes into convulsions and starts emitting energy again. Meanwhile, Hawkeye takes over the interrogation for Fury and quickly gets the alien to scream. In Queens, Spider-Man tells his aunt that the attack was meant for him, and that he'll have to leave for a while to keep her and Gwen safe. He tells them to get a hotel in Jersey and leaves. As he swing through the city, he's followed by Spider-Woman. At the Triskelion, the alien explains he's been sent as a result of society's actions, and that his mission is to clean the slate for a new, clean world. It them vomits out a giant creature that attacks and destroys the SHIELD containment facility. At the Triskelion's medical facility, Thing explodes in energy.

ULTIMATE DOOM #4 (May, 2011)

Mr. Fantastic, Thing, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, Captain America, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Thor, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, Captain Marvel, Dr. Octopus, Red Wasp, Nova (Rick Jones), Nick Fury, Carol Danvers

SYNOPSIS:
Along with the Ultimates, the heroes attack Mr. Fantastic in the Negative Zone. Human Torch burns Mr. Fantastic’s face and all of his equipment is destroyed. With Mr. Fantastic defeated everyone returns to Earth. Spider-Woman is hired by SHIELD, and Carol Danvers considers hiring Dr. Octopus. Sue and Ben get engaged. Mr. Fantastic floats around in the Negative Zone.

NOTE:
Thor is here, so these three minis have to happen after Ultimate New Ultimates, where he returns. Wasp is also here, but she died in Ultimatum (which these three minis expressly take place after). Luckily, Red Wasp has been introduced after Ultimatum and before these minis; we’ll just have to figure that she’s wearing the wrong costume for some reason.
