Synopsis for "20,000 Leagues Under Justice!"

The remaining Squadron Supreme members set out to track down the Avengers and retrieve the Serpent Crown. The Beast and Hellcat team up to defeat the trio of Amphibian, Tom Thumb, and Cap'n Hawk, however while Iron Man and Captain America best the Whizzer and Dr. Spectrum. Then the Avengers invade the White House itself and locate the device which can return them to their own world. The Beast, disguised as the President, keeps the Squadron occupied, while forcing them to face the fact that their world has been taken over and that, by never questioning their elected officials and corporate leaders, they have been aiding the enemy. Thus, when the Avengers make their escape, the Squadron members decide not to follow them.
