The Korvac Saga

Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

Synopsis:
Iron man calls the remaining Avengers together to find out why all former and current Avengers have been disappearing. He calls in Hercules and Black Widow. Meanwhile, Korvac is mentally exploring the cosmos, to make sure that none of the other powerful cosmic beings are aware of his presence. Captain Marvel flies off to find out what he can. Black Panther and Scarlet Witch disappear. The Avenger ask Vance Astro, in orbit aboard his spacecraft, to use their 30th century technology to trace the energy source of the disappearances. He does so, and Iron Man then asks him to transport the four remaining Avengers, himself, Thor, Hawkeye, and the Wasp, there. He does so, and they are transported aboard a spaceship which belongs to the Collector.
