Avengers volume 3 #7 discussion post (Live Kree or Die, part 4)

Part 3 of "Live Kree or Die" occurs in Quicksilver #10 - Live Kree or Die: Blue Moon. Unfortunately, Marvel hasn't seen fit to add the 13 issues of the 1997-1998 Quicksilver series to their digital unlimited collection. However, a very brief summary of the issue (with cover art) is available on ComicsVine here.

Iron Man volume 3 #7 discussion post (Live Kree or Die, part 1)

Despite the comm's title, we've reached our first crossover event. So instead of the usual "one issue of each title" discussion post format, I'm going to go ahead and post all four parts three parts available via Marvel Digital of "Live Kree or Die" (AKA "The Carol Danvers alcoholism storyline") in order, which will involve doubling up on some titles. Think of it as making up for skipping the postings last week.

Iron Man #7 - Live Kree or Die: Bad Moon Rising

From their secret base on Earth's moon, the Kree Lunatic Legion plans to carry out their vengeance on Earth, unaware that they are merely pawns in the Kree Supreme Intelligence's master plan.

Meanwhile, on Earth, Tony attempts to reach out to Carol, who is struggling with her damaged powers and growing alcoholism. It doesn't go well.

Steve continues his battle against the Sensational Hydra/Skrull, while public hysteria breaks out over the skrull threat.
