Synopsis for "Raison d'Etre"
In between her work for S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers, Black Widow spends her time taking jobs to capture and eliminate criminals so that she can atone for her past actions and try to forgive herself. The Black Widow never reveals what those horrible past actions were. Widow's lawyer and ally Isaiah helps get jobs for her, negotiates prices, and channels all of the money that she makes into trusts and the widow's "web". The Black Widow refuses to keep any of the money to make herself rich.
Isaiah gets a job for Black Widow in Dubai. She travels to Dubai and saves a crime lord from being assassinated by another mob boss, who was using the meeting in Dubai as a trap to kill the fellow criminal. Natasha takes out the sniper assassin in the building across the block by blowing him up with a missle launcher.
Later that night, the Black Widow confides in a stray cat about the job she just finished and the people she had to hurt.

Synopsis for "Motion"
At the offices of Paine & Luckberg, LLP, She-Hulk is waiting for her review with the owners of the firm. The secretary asks if she is nervous about it, but Jennifer is confident that it will go well given all the billable hours she managed to clock while simultaneously filling in for the Fantastic Four. Soon she is called into the boardroom and is stunned by how beautiful the room is. After the owners brag about their fifty thousand dollar teak meeting table they get down to business. After explaining the purpose of the review, the senior partners tell her that she will not be receiving a bonus. They then tell her that the whole reason they hired her was because of her connections to the superhero community and they are disappointed that she hasn't brought in Tony Stark, Daniel Rand, or Reed Richards into doing business with the firm. As it turns out, that is the only reason why they hired her, saying that if they wanted someone to work cases and generate billable hours they would hire a lawyer to do it. This angers her, and she decides that she will not reduce herself to the level of exploiting her relationships in the superhero community so that the law firm she works for can make more money. When they try to fire her for this insubordination, Jen beats them to the punch by quitting on the spot. They tell her that she will be able to take her files with her, including the blue file which she brought with her to that firm. As she walks out, she hears the senior partners complaining about how bad an investment she was, and she turns around and shatters their expensive meeting table with her finger, then walks out.
She-Hulk then goes to a bar for some drinks when she is approached by a woman named Holly Harrow. Holly needs legal help and Jennifer decides to listen to what this woman wants but offers no promises. She explains that her late husband had believed that someone stole his ideas but nobody wants to go near the accused because it could ruin them. Looking over the paperwork, Jennifer sees a convincing case. However, she knows the accused personally and tells her that she will talk to him and have it straightened out, convinced that it won't have to go to court. Jennifer goes to Stark Tower so she can talk to Tony Stark about the situation. At first, the holographic secretaries grant her access until she says she is coming because of a lawsuit. This initiates a protocol in their programming and they tell her to report to the eighteenth floor. She grudgingly goes up to the 18th floor where she finds a man named Legal who reviews lawsuits to see if they merit Tony's personal attention. He goes over the file and knows it instantly, telling Jennifer that the Harrow widow hasn't even filled out her statement of claim. After going over the lengthy history of Tony Stark's family company, he tells Jennifer to return once she has had a chance to review the file and correct any inconsistencies.
Jennifer soon takes Stark Industries to court, where she faces off against Legal and his team of five other lawyers. Before she can get a word in edgewise, Legal requests more motions be added to the trial, pointing out that they hadn't had time to form a proper defense, he requests a lot of additional conditions including questioning if Jennifer Walters is fit to represent her client due to her past relationship with Tony Stark. With a lot of work ahead of her, She-Hulk is brought to the storage locker where Jonas Harrow kept his inventions. She begins to think that this case is becoming too complicated and is about to back out when she sees the state of Holly's car and her children and sticks with it. As Jennifer begins cleaning out the storage space for information that will help her case, she is suddenly attacked by a robot that becomes active due to her intrusion. She-Hulk quickly smashes the robot and finds it was holding an audio recorder inside. She gives it a listen and finds the smoking gun she needs to win her case. Jennifer then goes back to Stark Tower where she is confronted by the security robots who tells her that she is not authorized in the building while legal proceedings are underway. However, she is not here in her capacity as a lawyer, but as She-Hulk. She makes short work of the robots and forces her way up to Tony's office on the top floor of the building.
Stark apologizes for the robots attacking her, as they are automated to protect him from the many people gunning for him. She then tries to talk to him about the Harrow case, only to discover that Tony has no idea that he is in the midst of a lawsuit. She explains how Accutech, an old Stark subsidiary and it's vice-president stole repulsor technology designs created by Jonas Harrow. Stark remembers Eddie Finch and recounts how he embezzled money from the company and ran unauthorized tests and had since been fired. She then convinces Tony to quietly write Mrs. Harrow a reasonable check to make this go away and perhaps rethink having so much automation within his company. Tony is impressed and agrees to her terms, calling her magnificent. Later, at the bar, Jennifer is greeted again by Holly Harrow who has been trying to track her down. Jen admits that she is taking a break from lawyering, but Holly wanted to thank her for what she has done for her family and wanted to pay for her services. She-Hulk is given a substantial check that allows her to open her own private practice.

Synopsis for "If He Be Worthy"
Roxxon begins performing deep sea exploration in the Norwegian Sea, when suddenly, their sea base is attacked by Frost Giants.
Meanwhile, on the Moon, in the shadow of Asgardia, Odin approaches the crowd of Asgardians who are watching Thor, who is kneeling dejectedly before Mjolnir, which for some reason he has become unworthy of wielding it following the Avengers battle against Nick Fury and has spent sleepless, hungry weeks, speaking only to the hammer. After another failed attempt to pick up his hammer, Thor laments that it all it took was a whisper from Fury to make him unworthy of Mjolnir. Odin demands to know what Fury whispered but gets no response from his son. Freyja counsels her husband, suggesting that he tone down and talk to his son. The All-Father scoffs at the thought of "coddling" Thor and accuses her of going soft in his absence, to which she retorts that Asgardia had not fallen during that time. The Warriors Three interject that all of the Asgardians assembled could not budge Mjolnir, so maybe the fault lies with the hammer. As Freyja reminds Odin that it was he who placed the enchantment that gave that thing the power to decide who was worthy, Odin casts Thor aside and attempts to pick up his creation but to his frustration, even he, the enchanter, cannot move it. As Odin furiously blasts the hammer with his magic, Freyja comforts Thor, telling him that a weapon doesn't define him.
Suddenly, Hugin and Munin, Odin's ravens, arrive to inform the All-Father of the presence of Frost Giants on Midgard. Odin orders his subjects to return to Asgardia, stating it's not their fight, though Freyja intends to march to war. Odin dismisses her order, declaring that her position as All-Mother is abolished with his return, though Freyja disagrees. Thor then rises up, announcing his intent to get a weapon and head home. Odin he means Asgardian and orders the Asgardians to head home. Freyja interjects that Thor is headed for Midgard and insists on restraining him given his weakened state, only for her husband to interrupt her, declaring that he will reassert his authority as the All-Father and Freyja will remember her place. Freyja then stares at Mjolnir.
Back on Earth, the Roxxon employees wonder what's going on. Suddenly, Malekith the Accursed appears behind them, explaining the nature of Frost Giants and that they've come for something in Roxxon's possession. He kills two men when they deny knowing what he's looking for, before the third man agrees to help. Then out of nowhere, Thor comes riding in on a goat, wielding Jarnbjorn against the Frost Giants. When he takes notice of Malekith, the dark elf humorously notes of a certain change in the Thunder God before slicing off his left hand. As the control room floods with seawater, Malekith casts a spell to allow him to breath while his Roxxon hostage drown. He then calls out to the giants, telling him he knows where to find their prize.
Back on the Moon, an unidentified female says, "There must always be a Thor." and grasps the hammer, which changes its inscription to "Whosoever hold this hammer, if she be worthy, shall possess the power of... Thor" and successfully lifts it off the ground.
