Synopsis for "The Hammer Falls (Part 1)"
In a flashback, Donyell Taylor, currently Bandit, is punching his brother Dwayne, the first Night Thrasher, out of spite towards their deceased father for cheating on their mothers. Dwayne refused to fight back and offers to befriend to his brother.
Some time later, Donyell is over Dwayne's grave, wondering what to do. Osborn told him that they can bring him back and all that he has to do is stab his team in the back. Therefore, Donyell is conflicted over what to do.
Meanwhile, in Asgard, Osborn sends the Taskmaster to handle the rest of the siege on the land of the gods, taking on two of the Warriors Three, while keeping Diamondback by his side just for show against the unconscious Thor. Diamondback thinks to help Thor, but then notices Maria Hill, armed with a rocket launcher, charging towards them. Thinking quick, Diamondback drops her explosive diamonds to help before Constrictor pulls her away from the explosion. Constrictor makes it apparent that he will not let her get hurt as Thor makes his escape. As they descend deeper into Asgard, they see Ares, ready to punish Osborn for his treachery, only to be killed by the Sentry. Next thing everyone knows, Captain America's shield is heading straight for Osborn's head.
Back in Camp H.A.M.M.E.R., the Resistance continues their assault. Scarlet Spider gets in and disables the base security systems. Meanwhile, the Hood demonstrates his new Asgardian magical weaponry, knocking back Rage, Gauntlet, Ultra Girl and Justice. Tigra jumps in to get her revenge for the brutality the Hood committed against her. Shaken, the Hood tells Donyell to kill Tigra if he wants his brother back.
The Initiative faces its own CIVIL WAR as Taskmaster, Constrictor and Diamondback join the Dark Avengers in the Siege of Asgard...and come face-to-hammer with Thor! Meanwhile, Justice, Tigra and the rest of the Avengers Resistance assault camp H.A.M.M.E.R., aiming to bring it down once and for all — but the Hood is ready for them! It's all-out war on two fronts — and one side won't be here when it's over!
- Takes place during the events of Siege #2.
