In Diablo's hideout, Goliath awakes and tries to attack Diablo. The Wasp is Diablo's prisoner, however, so Goliath backs down. Diablo "monologues" his plan to generate an entire army of Dragon Men. Captain America arrives by himself and is quickly defeated and is sent to prison.The Avengers arrive. Hercules saves the Wasp from Dragon Man while the rest of the team battles Diablo. Dragon Man is thrown into a pit of lava, prompting Diablo to flee.
