Letters Column: Avengers Assemble

Count Nefaria, with 100 times the power of Power Man, Whirlwind, and Living Laser, easily defeats the Avengers (Cap, black panther, yellow jacket, wonder man, beast, whizzer, scarlet witch, wasp, Iron Man). He flies off after dropping a building on the Avengers, apparently killing them. He confronts Whizzer, who reminds Nefaria of his mortality. Nefaria's new mission, now that he is all powerful, is to become immortal. He goes back to Avengers Mansion, to find that the Avengers survived. He orders them to call Thor, so that he can get the secret of immortality from him. They say they can't and another fight ensues. Just as the Avengers are getting beaten, Thor shows up.
