Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

The Avengers gather to discuss where they might find the Sentinels that abducted Scarlet Witch when they realize Quicksilver is missing. He is in fact running to the the Sentinel base, only to find it empty, and recalls an incident involving Larry Trask and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Quicksilver then seeks out and abducts Larry Trask.

The Vision contemplates the Reaper's claim of having the ability to return him to human form while the rest of the Avengers are informed that somebody is manipulating solar flares to threaten all life on Earth, the source of which being traced to Australia. As they prepare for departure, Rick Jones drops in to offer a helping hand and is shut down for not having any super powers.

Quicksilver confronts Larry and realizes that the amulet he wears weakens him as he approaches him. Quicksilver removes Larry's amulet and Larry tells Quicksilver of the Australian base that the Avengers are also converging upon, only to be immediately ambushed by Sentinels.

Larry explains that he wears the amulet to dampen his ability to forsee the future, a mutant power he can't bear to live wirh. In his vision he sees the Avengers defeated and the Earth destroyed.
