The Avengers fly to Attilan and drop off Quicksilver. In flying back to America, they fly over Russian airspace. They find that something is attacking the Russians. They take a vote, and decide to help the Russians, in spit of the potential political fallout. The Russians are being attacked by several elemental beings who have been created from a nuclear reactor. The beings want to take more humans in order to create beings from all of the elements. They decide that the Avengers would make worthy additions to their ranks, and capture the Falcon to turn him into one of them. The other Avengers rescue him and Ms Marvel comes up with a plan to defeat the elemental beings by shooting a laser cannon at a fusion reactor, causing its molten core to fall on the beings. The Avengers escape and fly off in their quinjet.
