Crystal finds out about Johnny Storm and Medusa’s secret relationship.

Thousands of years ago aliens experimented on cavemen, supercharging their evolution, and then mysteriously left their experiments behind.  These men and women built the city of Attilan and discovered a chemical called Terrigen that unlocked secret super-powers in their modified DNA, making them THE UNCANNY INHUMANS. 

While trapped and nearly crushed beneath the rubble of a collapsed building, Medusa and Johnny were forced to reevaluate their secret relationship.  Medusa believes that she manipulated Johnny’s affection, but Johnny admits that she gave him a new purpose in life.  Just as the debris threatened to cave in and crush them, Medusa and Johnny were saved at the last moment by Crystal, Medusa’s sister and Johnny’s ex-girlfriend…

Civil War II is an upcoming comic book crossover storyline published by Marvel Comics that is scheduled to debut in June 2016. It is the sequel to 2006’s “Civil War” and consists of an eight issue eponymous core limited series, by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artists Olivier Coipel, David Marquez and Justin Ponsor, and a number of tie-in books.
