The recent crises over, the Avengers are forced to reduce their membership to seven again. Hawkeye bitterly leaves, yelling at the Falcon before he leaves. Wonder Man says he will leave to take up acting. The Scarlet Witch, to the surprise of everybody, says that she wants to extend her leave of absence. Gyrich is angered by this and says he will head to New York to "settle this mess once and for all". Hawkeye needs to find a job to pay the rent, and gets a job as a security guard at a high tech company. While he is on duty, Deathbird breaks in, and Clint has to use all of his savvy to defeat her, after which he plants a big kiss on her lips as the police take her away. Gyrich arrives at Avengers Mansion and declares this is the end of the Avengers.
