Synopsis / Summary / Plot

New Avengers #2 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
Captain America and Spider-Man see Electro levitating away from the burning Raft carrying a prisoner they can’t identify. Spidey volunteers to head into the prison to scout for SHIELD and comes face-to-face with the waiting escapees. Count Nefaria hits him with energy blasts, knocking the hapless hero into the midst of his enemies; he is mobbed, his mask torn off, and his arm broken by Jigsaw; the other villains deliver a savage beating—until Cap comes to the rescue. Downstairs, as Matt Murdock asks Robert Reynolds for help, Foggy Nelson is seized by Carnage. Jessica (Spider-Woman) Drew and Luke Cage fight off the alien menace while Matt frees Foggy from his clutches and locks him in Reynolds’ cell for his safety. Matt then turns to discover the vengeful Mr. Hyde behind him… In the cell, Foggy talks to Reynolds, telling him that they came to help the Sentry figure out what happened to him and his wife, but now his friends are in trouble and the lawyer tearfully appeals to the incarcerated ex-hero for help. As those friends are having a hard time with their foes, suddenly Sentry bursts out of the cell, seizes Carnage and shoots through the ceiling and into space, where he rips the symbiote apart. This gives Cage the opportunity to punch out Hyde…when the room starts filling with water, courtesy of Hydro-Man. Jessica leads them to safety through the hole made by Sentry and the two groups of heroes unite. Cap is grabbed by Ironclad of the U-Foes and hurled high into the air—where he is caught by Iron Man. Cage is halted by the Purple Man who gives him the hypnotic command to kills the other heroes, then kill himself….
