Synopsis for 1st story
The Hood shows the Norn Stones Loki gave him, saying that he can use them to empower his entire gang to hunt down the New Avengers.
In Brooklyn, Steve Rogers and Bucky see the wreckage of their comprised safe house. Then suddenly, they are attacked by the Living Laser, who has just been enhanced by Asgardian magic. This is noticed by the H.A.M.M.E.R. ground forces nearby. Rogers quickly moves to take down the soldiers, leaving Bucky to deal with the Laser. He uses the shield to slice off his head, only to be caught by the Corruptor, who uses his chemicals to take Bucky under his control.
Meanwhile, in Manhattan, Spider-Man and Spider-Woman are hanging on the side of a building, seeing Avengers Tower on high alert. They discuss Spidey's past history with Osborn. In truth, Spidey confesses that he's more mad that Osborn weaseled his way into power. He swears that when Osborn screws up and everyone sees the maniac that he is, and also to web his face to the floor. Their conversation is interrupted when Spidey notices Spider-Woman's alien detector watch, given to her by S.W.O.R.D., to detect if he's a Skrull.
Back at the ruined safe house, Rogers infiltrates his former home, in order to find his energy shield. He uses it just in time, as mind-controlled Bucky attempts to shoot him.
Perched on another building is the Griffin and Mandrill. The former confesses that he doesn't want to go bounty hunting for Avengers but fears getting a bounty on his head. Just then, Mandrill sees both Spider-Man and Spider-Woman. Their attack sets off the former's spider-sense.
Meanwhile, the Laser finds Corruptor and demands that they finish off the heroes but the latter refuses to do so, until his puppet kills Rogers. Rogers himself urges his own friend to fight the chemicals. Unfortunately, Bucky couldn't do it. Luckily, the bullet bounces off their shield before ricocheting off a bulkhead right into Corruptor's device, freeing Bucky from his control. Angry, the Laser prepares for his attack.
Back in Manhattan, Spider-Man is being thrown around by Griffin, before being blasted right into the traffic below. Spider-Woman is affected by Mandrill's pheromones, who plans on extracting the New Avengers' location out of her before forcing her to kill herself.
Steve Rogers makes his triumphant return to the Avengers, but is he too late? With the SIEGE on Asgard begun, he must act swiftly, but who can he turn to and trust in a world with Norman Osborn in charge? When the gods fall, what chance does a Super Soldier stand? The biggest shake up since DISASSEMBLED starts here!
Referencing the events of One More Day, Spider-Woman tells Spider-Man she thought she heard that he was married. Spider-Man then tells her he had never been married.
