"Sacred Ground" Part 2 of 3. Script by Bob Harras. Pencils by Mike Deodato. Inks by Tom Palmer. Cover by Steve Epting and Tom Palmer.
After surviving their tussle with the Animutants, Crystal and Quicksilver plead their case to the High Evolutionary! However inside his majestic citadel, the master geneticist is highly suspicious of Pietro's visit, because of recent trouble on Wundagore Mountain involving the Magneto-worshipping acolytes! Nevertheless the two avengers allay his fears, and (as depicted on the spectacular full-page panel) the High Evolutionary comes down from the mountain and attends Bova! In the presence of her creator, Bova's spirits are suddenly lifted and everyone feels the worst is over. But then someone evil makes an entrance or perhaps better stated…an Exodus! Cameo appearances by Hercules, Hera, Taylor Madison, Scanner, Rakkus, and Exodus.
