Synopsis for "Zodiac, Part One"

In an unknown location, someone nicknamed Cancer is explaining to a group of people his plans, about to become their. He says that the only way they could achieve their goals is working together, as the new Zodiac.

The scene moves to New York City, where the Avengers inaugurates the new Stark Tower and the New Yorkers are overjoyed.

Now to the desert of Nevada, where the Hulk is sitting in peace when a military convoy is abruptly attacked by an unknown enemy. Hulk arrives to the scene and fights the Zodiac member Aquarius, who can turn himself in water. During the battle, Aquarius' costume is damaged but he returns to his aquatic form just in time to prevent being crushed by Hulk. After producing a small whirlpool, Aquarius disappears. Hulk finds one fragment of Aquarius' suit and when he's attacked by the Army, he leaves the scene. General Whedon looks to the damaged tank, where a mysterious object, which was being escorted, is damaged. He says "We should call the Avengers".

At Latveria, Hawkeye and Black Widow are about to ambush a cabin, taking down the guards. After taking a look to what's inside, Widow announces to her communicator: "Avengers Assemble". A similar object to the one which was destroyed in the dessert is carried to a truck by thugs, Widow and Hawkeye knocks them out and runs away in the truck. Taurus, from Zodiac starts to chase them. Thor and Iron Man arrives just in time to stop Taurus from reaching Widow. Surprisingly, his enemy defeats both Iron Man and Thor easily, shouting "You do not steal from the Zodiac!".
