Synopsis for "An Hour for Thunder"
The Avengers watch Mr. Dibbs and Black Bolt threaten the tenements on a viewscreen and make plans to travel to San Francisco, but Thor insists on going to confront Mr. Dibbs alone. The other Avengers don't know that Don Blake was the one who diagnosed Mr. Dibbs with terminal cancer, and when Thor arrives he struggles briefly with the royal family who are attempting to get Black Bolt to recognize them.
Thor fails to talk Mr. Dibbs into accepting a peaceful resolution and reluctantly dispatches him with his hammer. When the royal family get a closer look at 'Black Bolt' they realize he is not their monarch, but Mr. Dibbs' associate, Roscoe, wearing Black Bolt's costume. The costume is designed to contain Black Bolt's power, and thus allows Roscoe to produce limited devastation, but Roscoe is unfamiliar with it and is killed by feedback. The real Black Bolt is being kept under guard along with the boy who befriended him.
