Even Thor is no match for the giant, who calls Thor an insect. Back at Avengers Mansion, the Stinger has captured Iron Man, and now only needs to capture the Avengers at Maura when they return. Teacher tells Beast that is the stone token from the museum is placed on top of the giant's head, the giant will become immobile. However, Bloodhawk, in one of his bouts of insanity, has taken the token and flown off with it. The Beast is able to defeat Bloodhawk and get the token. However, he has no way to get to the top of the stone giant to lace the token. However Thor, trapped under the foot of the giant, gives Beast his hammer, which then flies Beast on top of the giant's head. The giant tries to shake Hank off, but Hank is able to put the token in place just in time. Thor then transports the giant to the other side of the galaxy. Beast invites Bloodhawk to join the X-Men. Bloodhawk, who has never trusted anyone, accepts. They all fly back to Avengers Mansion. The Stinger is able to incapacitate the Vision & Beast, but can't capture Thor. The Stinger, who had planned to sell the Avengers for $1 million each, then increases the power of his stinger to maximum. He shoots at Thor, but Bloodhawk jumps in front of Thor and takes the blast meant for him. The Avengers, now freed by Beast, who had recovered from the Stinger's blast, enter the room and quickly subdue the Stinger. Bloodhawk dies.
