Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

Dr. Donald Blake is unable to determine the cause of Wanda & Pietro's collapses, saying it seems as if someone has stolen their souls. The Avengers are unable to determine the causes, when Jocasta says that she is able to trace an energy flux which appeared when they collapsed. Gyrich is taken aback by Jocasta's presence, but she is able to stymie him for the time being. Beast, Wasp, Yellowjacket, Hawkeye, Captain America, Vision, Jocasta, and Iron Man head to the source of the energy flux. Meanwhile, the old man who has taken their souls tells them a story about how he was their gypsy father back in Europe, and they got separated, and now that he has found them again, the will never let them go. When the Avengers arrive at his apartment, they are at first fooled by his illusory magic spells, but they eventually overcome this. The old man, Django Maximoff, is running away with the wooden dolls, and the Vision catches him. Wanda tells Vision not to hurt the old man, that he doesn't mean any harm, and she tells him to destroy the old manís magic stone. Once the Vision does this, the spell is broken, and their souls return to their bodies. Afterwards, Wanda decides to take a leave of absence from the Avengers with Quicksilver and Maximoff, in order to go to Europe and trace their roots.
