Continuation of Jocasta story. Ms Marvel, who had a premonition of disaster for the Avengers, has joined them in order to offer her assistance. They trace Jocasta to a convent, where she had been driven by a nun, Sister Eucalypta. Sister Eucalypta allows the Avengers to search the convent. Scarlet Witch disappears. They find Ultron without much difficulty. They battle Ultron, while Ms Marvel tells Iron Man that Scarlet Witch is the key to victory, so she will go search for her. The Avengers are losing their battle against the indestructable Ultron. Meanwhile, Wanda is trapped in a sort of illusory room of mirrors. Ms Marvel discovers that Sister Eucalypta is a robot, destroys her, and frees Wanda. Wanda then uses her hex power to cause Ultron's molecular rearranger to malfunction, causing his energy to leak out. Thor absorbs Ultron's energy with his hammer, and shoots it into space, to dissipate. Immediately afterwards, Captain America disappears into thin air.
