Synopsis for "And the Rocket's Red Glare!"

Avengers Vol 1 244 001.jpg

The Avengers respond to a suspected extraterrestrial sabotage at the Kennedy Space Center and encounter a group of terrorists called the Rocketeers, who escape the ensuing battle under cover of a disabling mist. Unknown to the heroes, the Rocketeers were actually disguised alien Dire Wraiths, and are now in the heroes' very midst, under the guise of space center technicians.

When the Dire Wraiths stage a second assault on the facility, the Avengers deduce their true identities and capture them. However, one of the Dire Wraiths, disguised as a senior scientist, Dr. Cather, escapes in an experimental ion-drive rocket. Unbeknownst to its passenger, the rocket's drive engine is an unstable experimental model and is about to explode.

Meanwhile, Quicksilver and Lockjaw are in Transia to pay Bova a visit. They are stunned when they come across the smoldering remains of her home.

Solicit Synopsis

It's a great month for Rom fans! The Avengers face the eerie, insidious menace of the Dire Wraiths... and what chance do Earth's Mightiest Heroes have against an entire alien swarm? and there's even more - because this month's tales is really two stories in one.
