Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

Clint Barton visits the carnival because the owner wrote him a letter asking for help. He sees her being taken away by burly goons. He rescues her as Hawkeye, but they go into a tent where the Taskmaster, who has taken over the carnival, is. Ant-Man (Scott Lang) is also at the theater with his daughter. He sees Hawkeye and knows there must be trouble. Ant-Man rescues Hawkeye, and they both go after the Taskmaster. Using teamwork, they are able to defeat him.
