Marvel Two-In-One No. 53 The Pegasus Project Part One
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.
But not before giving an impressive display of his power bands.
It is all a case of mistaken identity.
We get two capsule histories first is Marvel Boy's a.k.a. Crusader.
Lightner a.k.a. Blacksun, who gave the Thing and Doc Savage such trouble but now works at Project Pegasus, seems to be involved in some shadowy goings on.
We take a brief break as we look into the seven-foot tall Thundra as she is convinced to go into the world of entertainment wrestling.
When the Thing finally does come across Wundarr it's in rather depressing circumstances.
Wundarr was being utilized to tap into the Cosmic Cube the net effect is . . .
Wundarr not only saps electricity he saps other things as well like Ben's strength.
Oh, look at this, Ben is going to stay in the Project at least overnight.
Lightner deactivates the elaborate Project security protocols.
Allowing Deathlok to enter the premises.
The last time we saw Deathlok he was entrusted to the care of S.H.I.E.L.D.. What has this guy been up to since then?
