Synopsis for 1st story

A demonic force has possessed both Luke Cage and the Eye of Agamotto, making the former a giant. The New Avengers are forced to fight their recently-appointed team leader and keep him away from the Eye; Wolverine tosses it out the window, before stabbing both Doctor Strange and Daimon Hellstrom in the chest. The Eye lands in Central Park, where an African-American couple on a picnic find it. They panic when the battle comes to them. Ms. Marvel grabs the eye and flies high into the sky, while the others tackle Cage.

Back at Avengers Mansion, Wolverine is trying to get answers out of the demonic force. Next thing he knows, spiritual energy bursts from both Strange and Hellstrom. Spider-Man, having hurried young Danielle to safety, asks if he had killed them. Wolverine denies it, for he only stabbed them a little. As they begin arguing, Strange regains consciousness and inhales. Getting up, he compliments Wolverine for his quick thinking, as severe trauma forced the demon to leave them; Wolverine's expression implies he's not. Strange then enacts a healing spell on himself, before using it on Hellstrom. Waking up, the Son of Satan says that whatever possessed them is planning on pulling this dimension apart.

Meanwhile, the New Avengers try getting through to Cage, who tries bargaining for the Eye. However, Ms. Marvel has a better idea: either the demon gives back their leader, or she'll crush the Eye. Enraged, the demon forces Cage back up, throwing off his teammates and snatches Ms. Marvel, who throws the Eye to Iron Fist. A short chase ensues, before Iron Fist uses his focused chi to knock his friend on his back again. Unfortunately, the demon has moved on to possess him. The New Avengers, Strange, Hellstrom and the miraculously alive Doctor Voodoo corner him before he can escape. However, Iron Fist disappears in a bright light before anyone could attack. Hellstrom grabs Voodoo by the Cloak of Leviathan, blaming him for allowing the demon to possess the eye. Strange even says that without the Eye, they forfeit -- everything! Soon enough, the sky splits open, as demons rain down on New York City.
