Synopsis:
Ms. Marvel is brought in to replace the Scarlet Witch, who is on leave. The Absorbing Man, thought dead, is able to reassemble his body. He decides to take a steamer to South America, where there are no superheroes, so that he can run rampant. Falcon is unhappy about being a token black Avenger, but Cap is able to convince him to join. The Absorbing Man takes a girl hostage, whom he plans on taking with him to South America. He gets into a fight with an out of costume Clint Barton at a coffee shop on the docks. Clint gets a call in to the Avengers. The Avengers show up, and after a short battle, the Absorbing Man absorbs the power of the ships turbines, and is red and huge.
