The Pegasus Project Part One

Marvel Two-In-One No. 53

Benjamin finally decides to pay another visit to Wundarr at Project Pegasus. Wundarr is a super-strong alien with the mind of a child that got foisted on Ben by Namor and Namora. Benjy looks at himself as a guardian to Wundarr. Project Pegasus is an energy research project of the U.S. government.

Upon arrival, the Thing is subjected to a battery of security protocols including this brain scan.

Ben rightly observes that the last time he was here security was never this tight. Everything goes smoothly until Ben meets the head of security whom he identifies as the Crusader, from his last encounter with the Crusader Ben has a knee jerk reaction that is decidedly negative.

Soon enough the "Crusader" correctly identifies himself as Quasar.
