Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

A captured Captain America, feigning brainwashing, insinuates himself deeper into the Sons of the Serpents hierarchy. Meanwhile, the rest of the team looks to get close enough to free him by posing as Serpent supporters, much to the horror of Bill Foster. Black Widow arrives in time to lend Hawkeye some much-needed aid, and the Avengers free Cap, revealing their true feelings and stopping the Sons' hate campaign… for now.
