Synopsis for "Captives of the Collector!"
With his vast collection of alien weapons to draw upon, the Collector downs first Iron Man, then Thor, and then the Wasp. Hawkeye courageously fights on alone, but when his devices fail, the Collector unleashes his own long-unused cosmic power against the archer. When Hawkeye nevertheless manages to strike his opponent with an electro-arrow, however, the aged immortal admits defeat. The Avengers are freed, and the Collector relates how he began his acquisition of specimens eons ago, in order to preserve them against the coming threat of Thanos, then foresaw an even greater menace, whom he sent his daughter to spy upon. At that very moment, Carina, the Collector's daughter, having fallen in love with Michael, betrays her father. Suddenly, a bolt of power strikes in the Avengers' midst, and the Collector is disintegrated.
