Synopsis for "Strange Adventures"

This story is a reprint of the comic
JLA/Avengers #3.

In the DC universe, the JLA are watching Dr. Doom joining the Source Wall. Hawkeye (who is also a member) flirts with Black Canary, making Green Arrow jealous. The first "dimensional glitch" occurs, with Clint vanishing. The team doesn't notice this change, but The Flash suggests they return to JLA Tower and inform their friends in the other universe about Doom's incursion.

Meanwhile, in Marvel Universe, the Avengers have just won a battle with Brainiac. Discussing the outcome, but Captain America feels that something isn't right. At that moment, Wasp announces that the JLA is visiting their reality. The two teams greet each other and head to Avengers Mansion. Both Superman and Captain America individually get the impression something is very wrong.

Suddenly, the scene shifts to JLA satelite, where the two teams are having a party with a Hawaiian luau theme. As everyone has fun, Captain America and Superman continue to have misgivings about the whole situation.

The scene shifts back to the Avengers Mansion, where Superman confides to Martian Manhunter that he feels like the entire situation feels strange - at that moment, Captain America explodes that something is deeply wrong. Wasp tries to calm him down, relating previous team-ups between the JLA and Avengers (which actually never happened), but Captain America refuses to listen, accusing Superman of the reality warping. Superman snaps back that it's Cap's fault, and both rush forward to attack each other ---

Suddenly, Vision and Aquaman find themselves in a snowy Metropolis. Aquaman notes that he still has a hand (which for him feels off), and finds a Daily Planet article with Clark Kent interviewing Spider-Man, which he says makes absolutely no sense. They are both then attacked by a group of DC vaillains. They are rescued by Captain America, Hal Jordan, Iron Man, Thor and Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman uses her Lasso of Truth on Sonar, who mumbles something about his "master" being trapped but tryiong to escape.

Meanwhile, in the Marvel universe New York City, Superman, Batman, Goliath, Wasp and others are rescuing citizens from major disasters. Some of the citizens, however, are from the DC Universe; one cab driver complains that no one there knows about his home country of Qurac. Godlike people appear, whom the Martian Manhunter tries to mind link with.

Flash and Scarlet Witch appear to Metropolis, Batman and Superman are still in New York but J'onn is Vanished. In the meantime Captain America, Aquaman and the others are trying to clear the snow, while Vision is searching the area when J'ohn J'ones appears with some people.

Martian Manhunter instructs everyone in both universes to follow him, and explains that the realities are interacting, with places randomly appearing and disappearing. Superman and Iron Man fly into space and discover both Earths being forcibly merged together by Krona. Scarlet Witch and Green Lantern attack Krona with their respective powers, and both teams use their willpower to disrupt the rift, and are returned to their own worlds.

With the help of The Phantom Stranger, both teams are taken to a dying Grandmaster, who tells them that Krona is imprisoned between both realities, and will destroy both to escape. In his last dying act, Grandmaster shows the teams their true past, featuring such dark moments as Superman's death at the hands of Doomsday, Ant-Man's domestic abuse of Wasp, Hal Jordan going insane and murdering the entire Green Lantern Corps, Iron Man's alcoholism, and the tragedy of Vision and Scarlet Witch's "son".

Hal, who arguably has the most to lose, states that they have to return reality back to the way it was, for good or ill, and both teams vow to defeat Krona, together.

Synopsis for "Take One Giant Step -- Backward!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Avengers #91.

In an inexplicable tropical jungle at the North Pole, three Avengers - Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and the Vision - and Rick Jones battle Ronan the Accuser, the Kree Sentry and a brainwashed Goliath. The Kree hero Captain Marvel is already Ronan’s prisoner.

The Wasp had already been knocked out during the battle. She is found by Yellowjacket, who had been de-evolved into a primate form.

While the Avengers hold their own against the Sentry and Goliath, Ronan explains that he intends to de-evolve the human race so that the Kree can take over the Earth. As the battle rages on, Goliath is defeated but Scarlet Witch and the Vision are taken hostage.

Imprisoned within Ronan’s ship, Wanda and the Vision come close to expressing their mutual, secret feelings for each other. Elsewhere, the primate Yellowjacket protects the Wasp from several other primate beings (who are the missing members of a science expedition whom Hank and Jan were searching for in the first place).

Quicksilver and Rick invade Ronan's ship and free Captain Marvel and their teammates. Ronan is forced to abandon the fight and flee when he is contacted by his troops in space, who inform him that the Skrulls have invaded Kree space.

Upon Ronan's departure, the Sentry shuts down once more and the devices maintaining the tropical zone and de-evolving the humans are reversed. Goliath shakes off Ronan's mind control while Yellowjacket and the other de-evolved expedition members revert back to their normal selves. But all those present are concerned that this is not the last they’ve seen of the Kree...
