Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

The Avengers engage in a long battle with the Absorbing Man. Cap and Falcon show up during the battle, and Hawkeye harbors secret resentment that the Falcon is taking his place on the Avengers. During the battle the Absorbing Man moves his captive out of the way, not wanting her to get hurt. The Avengers are able to battle the Absorbing Man to a stalemate long enough for him to miss his ship. With no reason to continue the fight. he disperses himself into the ocean, leaving his former captive to wonder about his act of selflessness in saving her instead of using her as a hostage.
