This Missive, This Machination!
Allen the Alien discusses his findings from Earth with the Coalition of Planets. Descending from the planet Unopa, his world was attacked by the Viltrumites and his species joined the Coalition to help stop the Viltrum Empire. Bred to be the strongest of the Unopans, Allen's role is to evaluate planets for beings powerful enough to challenge the Viltrumites. He explains Mark's defiance and Nolan's abandonment of Earth; while others remain skeptical, Coalition leader Thaedus supports his findings, believing they now possess an advantage. Afterward, Thaedus reveals to Allen that he believes that there is a mole within the Coalition and tasks Allen to find it. Later on, Allen is confronted and brutally attacked by three Viltrumites; Thaedus then secretly sabotages his recovery. While Mark attends college, Debbie joins a support group for superhero spouses, but is shocked to learn an acquaintance she made is the husband of original Guardian member Green Ghost. She later reveals she is Omni-Man's wife and leaves in shame. Mark meets a shapeshifting insect-like alien from the distant planet Thraxa, who tells him his people are in danger and asks for his help. Against Cecil's orders, Mark travels to Thraxa, where he unexpectedly reunites with Nolan, who serves as the Thraxans ruler.
