Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

Synopsis:
The Avengers fly to Wundagore to answer Quicksilver's distress call. However, bad weather knocks out the engines. The Avengers bail out, with Wonder Man staying on board to keep the quinjet from crashing into a populated area. He lends his rocket pack to the Beast. The other five Avengers encounter Modred. He defeats four of them in battle, but he forgot about the Wasp, who knocks him out with a sting. However, Cthon/Wanda appears and knocks out the Wasp. Meanwhile, the Beast crash lands on the side of the mountain, and discovers an old suit of armor apparently worn by an animal. Wanda/Cthon also captures Wonder Man, who had survived the crash of the quinjet. She has everybody captive. However, the Beast shows up in the armor of a Knight of Wundagore, who had previously defeated Cthon, as Beast had deduced. He lances the magic book used by Cthon. Captain America, now freed, incapacitates Modred with his shield. Then, Quicksilver deduces that the woods of Wundagore, from which Django's wooden dolls of Pietro & Wanda were made, have magical properties. Pietro, aided by the willpower of all of the Avengers, uses the wooden Scarlet Witch doll to wrest Cthon from the body of the Scarlet Witch, allowing Wanda to retake her own body. Cthon is now trapped inside of the wooden doll, and Wanda casts a spell burying the doll under an avalanche. Modred is now infant-like, without Cthon to guide him. Bova agrees to take care of Modred, as she was literally made to care for children.
