Following EnergyStar into the tube, Jericho, Agent X, PowerSurge, MANAC, and Sue Gnomi emerge from a second tube, presumably somewhere else in the Negative Zone. A quick check of the SHIELD detector pen reveals both lights are on - the missing SHIELD agents must be close...relatively, anyway.
As EnergyStar described, a creature resembling an undulating blob of white spheres with a single bulging black eyeball and a long, horn-like snout is present and examining the tube...probably wondering where EnergyStar disappeared to went she went back to get the rest of the heroes.
There is a beam of energy stretching off into the distance that ties this tube to...something else...but the large, bulbous creature before you is a more pressing matter.
Initiative and actions, please!
Bubble Beast is on Initiative 6.0.
