G.W. Bridge ponders the whereabout of some villains. At Thunderbolts base, Techno scans Atlas potential while Citizen V keeps an eye on everyone. A heated debate between him and Meteorite is interrupted by an emergency call: unidentified beings have sunk a freighter and threaten to attack the Madison Square Garden and LaGuardia Airport next. The team splits in two: as Atlas, Jolt, Songbird and V oppose the enemies in the Garden, Mach-1, Meteorite, Songbird and Techno try to save a plane from crashing. When Jolt identifies the assaultants as former Avengers foes, Citizen demands unconditional acces to the Avengers files again.
