In late June of 2024, Nick Fury and Maria Hill were off-world on a Skrull vessel. So to maintain global security, the two had assigned the Skrull spouses Talos and Soren to respectively impersonate them to complete a terrestrial mission, while they took a 'vacation' of sorts. Keeping in line with their ordered aliases, Talos and Soren were following reports of a "storm with a face" that destroyed the town of Ixtenco in Mexico.
When the two arrived at the location, they found the town in ruins from a recent storm. Then the Sandman, the one responsible for the destruction, attacked them just as Quentin Beck had appeared before them. Helping each other, they defeated the monster and later formed a "partnership" upon Beck's exposition of more Elementals arriving at later times.
- "We're fighting the weather now?"
Startled by the sudden arrival of Mysterio, they were then taken by surprise with the emergence of Sandman, a large monster made of Earth, which arose and attacked them. Talos and Soren began to fire at Sandman as it roared across the area, inflicting minimal damage. Mysterio then blasted energy from his hands, and after a momentary battle had he seemingly destroyed the monster.
After Mysterio "destroyed" the Elemental, he joined with Talos and Soren, to stop the other three Elementals that were expected to attack in other locations on Earth. Talos was forced to contact Spider-Man for assistance, only to get ignored, resulting in his hijacking of Parker's summer field trip to Europe.
