Captain America announces that, as chairman, he will only keep six Avengers, and the rest must go. The Avengers take a break, all going their separate ways, then are to reconvene to decide on the new membership. Much to everyone's surprise, when the Avengers reconvene, Moon Knight, Angel, Iceman, Hercules, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Tigra, and the Dazzler show up. They don't even know why they showed up, they seem to be compelled. They start to spar. Jocasta then notices Moondragon's presence. She admits that she manipulated everyone into showing up for tryouts, because she felt the Avengers needed reorganization. She claims divine right as a goddess to interfere with peoples' minds as she sees fit. Hawkeye & the Black Widow leave upon finding this out. Moondragon then controls everyone’s minds trying to get the others to try out. Iron Man is able to break free and break her concentration, then to nullify her powers. Rather than continue the fight, Moondragon disappears. Ultimately, the Avengers decide on Tigra, Captain America, Thor, Wasp, Iron Man, and Yellowjacket.
