Part of the 'The Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar Empire' event.
Contains the story: "Vulcan’s Progress".
Synopsis (may contain spoilers):
#Vulcan journeys through the deep recesses of space, shadowed by the memories of his dark childhood. From the day he was ripped from his dying mother's womb, Vulcan was groomed to be a slave for the #ShiarEmpire. His horrific origins (revealed to him by the #XMen), now drive his insatiable desire of vengeance upon the former emperor #DKen. After more than a week Vulcan encounters his first Shi'ar vessel and, without giving it a second thought, he destroys it. Vulcan then threatens one of its survivors into giving him directions to #Chandilar, the #Shiar throneworld. However he is told by the terrified man, that he requires a vessel in order reach his destination. Before being obliterated by Vulcan, the survivor also states that D'Ken has been catatonic for many years now. Searching for some other consolation, Vulcan turns his sinister plans on the Shi'ar people and their current leader (#Lilandra). Afterwards, he locates three warships in the distance, and mercilessly destroys two of the vessels. The remaining warship has no choice but to surrender to Vulcan. In the days that follow he expands his knowledge of the Shi'ar, including the existence of Lilandra's older sister, #Deathbird. The crew destroy each stargate they pass through in anticipation of the #Earther's (X-Men) arrival. When the #Warbird reaches the inner realms of the Shi'ar Empire, they are hailed from space. Declared enemies of the imperium they are ordered to capitulate their spacecraft... by the Imperial Guard!
