Warning: contains spoilers for Avengers: Tech-On Avengers # 4!

IN Avengers: Tech-On Avengers, that Red skull, using shards of Infinity Stones, has robbed Earth’s heroes of their powers, forcing them to use giant mech suits to compensate. Now, in number four, for sale now in print and digital, Red Skull uses the notches to give an Infinity Stone upgrade to a symbiot, and creates the ultimate weapon.

The Infinity stones are some of the most powerful objects in the Marvel universe; in fact, so powerful that they themselves are crushed to small shards, still capable of triggering great chaos. Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man and the rest learn this the hard way; using the Infinity shards, the red skull has stolen the power of any hero and launched a devastating attack. Now powerless, the heroes are forced to turn to other avenues to find ways to defeat the red skull. In response, Iron Man creates giant mechanics suits for his friends. Meanwhile, the red skull continues its attacks, creating mech versions of Loki and other villains to distract the Avengers. Time and time again, they return the red skull, but readers find that he has one more ace up his sleeve. Avengers: Tech-On Avengers # 4 is written by Jim Zub, with art by Jeffrey “Chamba” Cruz and letters by Travis Lanham.

The Red Skull have suffered too many defeats in the hands of Iron Man and the Avengers, and are now ready to release their last weapon. Readers learn that the skull has been working on an “advanced symbiote project,” but his scientists tell him it is not ready. The red skull decides to use energy from the Infinity scores to complete the project due to the protest of its lead researcher. The Red Skull dismisses these concerns, and the scope of his Advanced Symbiote Project becomes clear: he creates a mech version of a symbiote, called “Scream Supreme,” using actual symbiotic material. Unbeknownst to the red skull, Venom (or someone like him) is outside the cave, attracted to the call of another symbiot.

Red Skull's symbiote / mech hybrid

The mechanisms seen so far in this miniseries have been completely mechanical, but Scream Supreme represents the next step: the fusion of mechanical components with the biological material of the symbiote. The Red Skull uses Infinity Energy to complete Scream Supreme – will this give even more power to the mek / symbioth hybrid? By using the energy of infinity, the red skull further depletes its reserves, potentially weakening him and triggering his defeat. And there is also Venom, who senses the symbiote in the possession of the Red Skull; he will definitely play a role in the series’ conclusion – will he be the key to stopping Scream Supreme, and the Red Skull?

That Red skull has become wary of his constant defeats at the hands of Avengers, and in an attempt to end them forever, he has given one Infinity stone upgrade to one symbiot, to create a new type of being that has never been seen before.
