Inferno gets away from Iron Man and Wonder Man. He kills the man who killed him but he also discovers that the man was ordered to kill him by their boss. So, he goes off in search of their boss, for revenge. The Avengers find Inferno, and a battle ensues. Inferno causes a distraction by toppling a trolley car, and the Avengers must let Inferno go in order to save the people inside the car. Inferno catches up to his former boss inside the man's home. The man confesses that he was working for the Maggia, ad that he double crossed them, and ordered the death of Joe because Joe was getting suspicious. The Avengers bust in just then, and announce that they heard his confession and will send him to jail. His mission accomplished, Inferno walks off into the ocean.
