Avengers Disassembled

Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

In a flashback Wasp drunkenly mentions children to Wanda and dismisses it.

In the present, Doctor Strange tries to get the Avengers to believe that the Scarlet Witch is their unseen enemy.

In another flashback Wanda goes to see Agatha Harkness and shocks her by mentioning her children, Wanda is furious.

Doctor Strange eventually convinces the Avengers that the Scarlet Witch is the one behind it. The team go to confront her.

Captain America walks into Wanda's illusion of her family and she conjures illusions of the Red Skull and German soldiers to defeat him.

Warbird is next to try and defeat the Witch and Wanda summons an illusion of Rogue. She then proceeds to create illusions for the others.

Doctor Strange then defeats her but says his mind is gone.

Elsewhere Nick Fury and some SHIELD agents find the rotting corpse of Agatha Harkness.

Magneto then arrives to pick up his daughter and leaves.

The Avengers disperse.
