Despite Wanda's concern for her brother, Cap states that the Avengers must always concern themselves with innocent civilians first. Thus the Avengers (including the Scarlet Witch and the Black Widow) fly to the Balkans. There, they discover a huge computer named Ixar draining information from the village's Burgomeister.

Ixar lured the Avengers to him in order to extract power use them to build the Ultroids. They also discover that the Scarlet Witch who accompanied them is a fake, she is in fact an Ultroid known as Ultrana.

Ultrana and the Ultroids attack the Avengers, capturing them all. They are to be subjected to Ixar's experiments. Since the Black Widow is not an Avenger, she is sent to be destroyed.

Synopsis for "To Conquer a Colossus!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Avengers #37.

(Story continues from last issue) The Avengers have been captured by the Ultroids. Since the Black Widow is not an Avenger, she is being taken away to be destroyed.

The Ultroid's spaceship takes off. Goliath changes size to escape and sets the rest of the Avengers free. They fight the Ultroids to a stalemate. But they stop short of defeating them since, if they go any further, Ixar will kill the burgomeister of the village.

Ixar absorbs the power of all the Ultroids, giving himself a colossal-size body. The Avengers attack but are all defeated except for Hawkeye and the Black Widow. They theorized that Ixar is somehow connected to the burgomeister. Acting on this hunch, they threaten to kill him. Ixar speculates that Hawkeye cannot carry out that threat as he is bound by Avenger's moral code which forbides them from taking life. The Black Widow, however, reminds Ixar that she is not an Avenger. Realizing she can carry out this threat, Ixar is forced to release all the Avengers.

Synopsis for "Suddenly...the Sub-Mariner!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Avengers #40.

The Scarlet Witch collapses from stress sustained in their most recent battle (last issue). Elsewhere, the Black Widow steals an experimental jet from General "Thunderbolt" Ross.

The Sub-Mariner attacks a submarine which has been destroying underwater wildlife. He then decides to attack the base it came from. The Avengers receive a call from Captain America warning that a dangerous item called the Cosmic Cube has been seen near the base and the Avengers should secure it.

While Quicksilver stays with his recovering sister, the other Avengers accompanied by Hercules journey to the base and battle the Sub-Mariner. Just as the Avengers are on the verge of defeating Namor, Hercules unwittingly mentions the Cosmic Cube to him. The Sub-Mariner (who had located the Cube earlier but was unaware of its abilities) flies away but returns with the Cube and the battle begins again. Namor is beaten, however, when he loses contact with the Cube, and it is lost down a crack in the ground which seals itself after.

Sometime later, the Mole Man finds the Cosmic Cube but throws it away, dismissing it for a useless bauble.
