Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

Conclusion of Attuma story. The Vision convinces Dr Doom that it's in his best interest to free the Avengers and team up against Attuma. Wonder Man, Namor & the Whizzer go after Attuma. The Beast gets discovered aboard Attuma's ship and gets knocked out by his guards. Namor & Wonder Man attack Attuma, while the Wizzer waits in their ship. Dr Doom & the Avengers are able to track Attuma, and attack him, just after Namor & Wonder Man do. The Avengers team up to defeat a newly augmented Tyrak, then find a half-conscious Attuma, who has been beaten by Dr Doom. Doom has taken the weapon and left. The Avengers follow Doom back to his home base, and distract Doom while Vision destroys the new weapon. With no reason to continue the battle, Doom flies away.
