Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Champions, The #16 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
Doctor Doom has released his Neuro-Gas into the air making everyone in the world his unwitting servant in his plan for global domination. Magneto and the Beast try to enlist the Champions as allies in stopping Doom's plot, but the hero team isn't buying it and they battle the Beast and Magneto. When Magneto realizes he's wasting too much time trying to recruit help, he and Beast depart for Washington with the Champions in pursuit. In the capital, Doom has taken control of President Carter and the White House and when Magneto and the Beast arrive, Doom brings in the Hulk to fight for him. When the Champions arrive, Doom takes control of their minds and sends them against Magneto. Ghost Rider, immune to the Neuro-Gas, joins Magneto and the Beast against Doom and the assembled heroes. The battle ends when Ghost Rider sets fire to Doom's mask, forcing the villain to remove it. Breathing his own gas causes everyone else to come out from under his influence. Hulk, bored with all the talk, leaps away, and Magneto departs as well, leaving several confused heroes surrounding a raving mad Doctor Doom.
