The Avengers have their first meeting with the new lineup. Yellowjacket is irrationally angry at Jan for making them late. He shreds one of the costumes. Yellowjacket then picks a fight with Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor during the meeting. He feels overlooked by them. Meanwhile, Gorn the barbarian, living with his woman, a sorceress named the Elfqueen, hidden from mankind by her powers, is bored and wants to reenter the real world. The Elfqueen is against this, but acquiesces. The go into Washington DC, where Gorn gets into a fight with a police officer. HE is humiliated when she rescues him, and slaps her when she tries to get him to return home. This causes her to leave him. Gorn gets into a fight with some muggers, and is fatally shot by the police. The Avengers have already departed for Washington because of reports of the Elfqueen. They show up just after a grieving Elfqueen discovers her dead lover. Not understanding each other's language, a fight breaks out. The Avengers are losing. Captain America is finally able to determine that the Elfqueen means no harm, and that they mean her no harm, when Yellowjacket, against Cap's orders, attacks her. The fight resumes, but Cap is once again able to make peace with her, and she takes them to the dead Gorn. They then let her go in peace.
