An other-worldly menace called The Space Phantom has come to earth to defeat The Avengers in lieu of conquering the planet for his people. As he transforms into each Avenger one by one & teleports the real member into another dimension until he's ready to become another of their teammates, he sows confusion & doubt among them. How can The Avengers stop an enemy who can assume their likeness? And the mistrust sown among the group may have a long-lasting effect for one Avenger!
