Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

Scarlet Witch goes back to the Brand Corporation to pick up the serpent crown. She meets the Living Laser, who is also after the crown. He takes the crown and literally disappears, leaving Wanda to battle Brand's guards. She is shot in the arm before she manages to escape. An hour earlier, the Whizzer was visiting the Avengers, and the Living Laser caused him to hallucinate, causing him to attack the Avengers. In the confusion caused by this battle, the dazed, perhaps still zombified Wonder Man, escapes Avengers mansion, walks down the streets of New York, to meet the Living Laser, who now has control over wonder man, and commands him to destroy the Avengers. Continued in Giant Size Avengers #6.
