Picking up at the end of #151, a zombified Wonder Man comes out of a crate outside Avengers Mansion, claiming that the vision stole his mind. There is a media circus. The Avengers retrear inside Avengers mansion, with Wonder Man. Scarlet Witch determines, using her magic, that the answer to this mystery lies in New Orleans. They go to New Orleans to investigate, taking Wonder Man with them. Once there, they discover a voodoo cult led by the Black Talon. The Black Talon nearly defeats the Avengers by calling upon a dark god named Damballa. However, the Scarlet Witch defeats him. Upon interrogating the Black Talon, he says that Wonder Man was brought to him by his servants, already zombified, with a message from someone only known as "the one whose will we serve". The Avengers go back to New York, minus Wanda, who says that she has to complete her self-knowledge.
