I don't think it's as overt as that, but in issue #1, Moon Knight is the first person to sense Onslaught's presence in the Roxxon facility, telling his team he can feel evil at work. Sean McKeever even has a little fun with Marc's mental state. While standing near some tubes connected to the Negative Zone, Marc tells the Secret Avenger the tubes have a voice. Without missing a beat, he then says something like, "And before you ask, it isn't one of mine."
Also of some note I suppose, Onslaught uses his powers to control the minds of a group of children armed with assault rifles and Antman claiming he can influence the minds of others even in his weakened state. Since Moon Knight isn't affected, it might be a sign that he's still a hard guy to manipulate.
I'm with you. I hated the original Onslaught stuff, but this story seems more about tying up Young Allies business than reintroducing Onslaught as a major threat. This isn't an "Event" book like Civil War or Secret Invasion. It doesn't even rate a Shadowland in terms of it's "THINGS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!" (TWNS!) meter. I have a strong feeling things will be more-or-less the same by the time this is over. Onslaught Unleashed feels more like a love letter to fans of the Young Allies book who never got to see the series come to a satisfying conclusion. At the very least, I'd say pick up the trade if you're an MK fan.
