Letters Column: Avengers Assemble!

The Lava Men peacefully go home. However, as the Avengers plan to go back home, they find out that the facility is under attack by Blackout, Moonstone, Electro, and the Rhino. A battle ensues. The Rhino and Electro are eventually captures, and Moonstone and Blackout escape. However, they can't give chase because the Wasp discovers that Moonstone has done something insidious to the facility. Spider-Man, with his scientific training, is able to determine that she has pulled all the damping rods out of the core, and there will be a huge nuclear explosion unless they can get put back in place. Spider-Man directs Captain Marvel in how to do this, and she is able to do it. The Avengers want to offer Spider-Man Avenger-in-training status, but the security council refuses, saying Spidey is a security risk. Captain America offers to talk to the president personally, but Spidey declines, saying him joining the Avengers probably wasn't such a good idea, anyway.
