Synopsis for "Burning Need"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Iron Man Vol 3 #21.

While firefighters try to extinguish the blazing Roxxon refinery, Iron Man and Warbird evacuate the workers inside. They're told the automatic shutoffs have failed, so they re-enter the refinery to shut them off manually. An explosion knocks loose a tank of liquefied natural gas; Warbird tries to get it away from the fire, but it is too heavy; then Iron Man lends a hand and together they throw it high into the sky to explode harmlessly. As Warbird claims she could have done better if she had steadied herself with a drink earlier, Iron Man tries to tell Warbird that she doesn't have to do things alone, and accepting help isn't a sign of weakness, but she doesn't listen.

When Inferno escaped Stark put in an alert to the Avengers, and Jarvis informs him about Thor's recent battle with Juggernaut (Thor #17, '98).

However, once there, Count Zorba is transformed into Carnivore and attacks them; Iron Man holds him back while Dr. Mann deciphers the hieroglyphics to learn about the mystic entities that created the gems to be used by totems to decide which of them was the most powerful. As Decay and Tempest arrive to summon Carnivore to their gathering, they give Carnivore leave to slay Iron Man first; luckily Thor shows up, and the three Exemplars swiftly depart. Dr. Mann tell the two heroes that the have to prevent the eighth and final transformation; once all eight Exemplars have been created, they will each take over an 1/8th of the planet and declare an all-out war.

Synopsis for "The Eighth Day, Part 1"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Thor Vol 2 #17.

In New York, Stephan is proposing to his girlfriend Courtney, when Thor comes crashing into the ground right next to them. Enrakt hovers over the fallen Thor, commanding him to kneel before him. Thor hurls Mjolnir at him, but Enrakt catches it in his hand, fills it with energy, and hurls it back at Thor. Enrakt then goes to fight beside his brothers. As Thor prepares to follow him to Asgard, he notices carnage of another sort taking place below, and spies the Juggernaut on a rampage. He sees some innocent people in his path, and ignoring Enrakt, flies to try and stop the Juggernaut. But Juggernaut is stronger than before, and something is calling to him, forcing him to follow to a location he doesn't even know. The Juggernaut pounds Thor into the ground, and storms off. In Asgard, Loki looks on as Juggernaut is pounding on Thor, and looks into his history. He then learns about the other Exemplars of Krakken and Ikonn. Thor catches up to the Juggernaut and begins attacking him again, when Bedlam and Conquest arrive and separate them. Bedlam mindblasts Thor away, and they vanish with Juggernaut.

Synopsis for "The Coming Of The...Wonder Man!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Avengers #9.

Baron Zemo, the Executioner and the Enchantress scheme on how to defeat the Avengers. They notice in the news that Simon Williams, arrested for embezzling money, blames Tony Stark. They agree to help him get revenge on Stark as Iron Man is his bodyguard (they are unaware they are one and the same). They take Williams to the Amazon jungle and use a machine on him which makes him all-powerful, but to keep him under control, Zemo poisons him and only he knows the antidote.

They stage a battle against the Avengers where Wonder Man aids the Avengers, to earn their trust. He explains the illness he has and the Avengers work to find a cure. The Wasp is taken captive and the Avengers go to save her, only to be betrayed by Wonder Man. The Masters of Evil come very close to defeating the Avengers, until Wonder Man turns on Zemo. His change of heart is due to the Avengers doing all they could to save him, even though they didn't know him. Wonder Man saves the Avengers, but subsequently dies from Zemo's poison.
