No, not that one.
Or that one. This one.
Basil Elks, the original A-number one stunner. Literally. Capable of holding off the Thing AND Spider-Man simultaneously, the Basilisk died ignominiously at the hands of the Scourge, only to be resurrected to fight the Punisher. Since then he hasn't been seen. And there's a very good reason for that...
See, once upon a time, Basil Elks was just a petty thief who managed to get his hands on an ancient Kree artefact that gave him a variety of powers, including concussive eye-beams. Since then, he's used those powers to tangle with any number of super-heroes. But what Basil didn't know was that every time he used those powers, a beacon on the Kree homeworld of Hala flashed and an alert was filed.
Now, in the aftermath of recent cosmic shenanigans, the once-mighty Kree Empire is in flux. Factions rise and fall, engaging Byzantine schemes against one another and the nominal rulers of the Empire. And one such faction has re-discovered those old alerts, and by extension, the Basilisk.
Now, a squad of Kree commandos is tearing through Earth's upper atmosphere with the intention of extracting either the Basilisk, or the power he holds. But Basil Elks is a hard man to find, and an even harder one to hold, and he's not going quietly.
And, too, the Basilisk isn't the only wielder of a Kree power source on Earth. There are a number of others, including Moonstone and Man-Wolf. And Basil has discovered that his powers resonate with those of the other wielders, making him, in effect, a cosmic blood-hound.
Now the Basilisk isn't a wise man, or a good man, but he is a curious man. Experimenting with his powers even as he readjusts to being in the land of the living, Basil Elks begins to wonder about those resonances and their possible consequence. But because he is also a greedy man, he begins to think that maybe, just maybe, he ought to see about acquiring those other power sources by any means necessary.
And above it all, a band of Kree soldiers, determined and armed for war, drawing ever closer to their target...
