Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

Three Defenders (Hercules, Black Widow, Iceman) answer a call from Iron Man, and Iron Man attacks them as soon as they arrive. A long fight ensues, which carries over into Avengers Mansion. It is revealed that Hercules' old enemy, Typhon, arrived earlier and captured the Beast, threatening to kill him unless they call Hercules. Then, Typhon decides to tell Iron Man to go and fight Hercules, in order to weaken him before Typhon gets to face him. Iron Man does so, for fear of Beast's life. Finally, the Defenders figure out what is going on, and all turn on Typhon. Pluto teleports Typhon away, knowing he can't defeat all of them.
