Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

Beast and Wonder Man are heading home after a long night of drinking, and they run into Red Ronin. Just then, the Avenger pick them up in a quinjet. Vision and Iron Man's powers prove useless against Red Ronin. The Beast and Jocasta manage to go inside him via a doorway in his foot. Wasp and Yellowjacket get inside, and talk to Dr Cowan. He explains his plan to start WWIII, and they try to talk him out of it, so he blows them out of Ronin with an exhaust fan. Meanwhile, Ms Marvel reveals her secret identity to the Scarlet Witch as Carol Danvers. The Avengers are aided in their battle by Nick Fury aboard SHIELD's flying battleship. Iron Man comes up with a plan to disable Red Roning by hooking his armor up to the SHIELD ship and sending a huge electrical charge to Red Ronin. This seems to work, knocking Iron Man out in the process, but then Red Ronin awakes and walks away. The man controlling him has been knocked unconscious, and Red Ronin's controls are stuck on "destroy".
