Synopsis / Summary / Plot

New Avengers #62 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
Image from New Avengers #62

Spider-Woman, under the mental control of the Mandrill, has just blasted Spider-Man over the side of the roof. He manages to shoot a web and swings back up to confront his partner. Spidey won’t hurt Jess but she has no qualms about blasting him again….

In the ruins of the Avengers safe house, Captain America (Bucky) and Steve Rogers are battling the Living Laser. Steve gives the enemy one chance to amend his ways. "Or what?" "Or Luke Cage will punch your head right off your body." The Laser turns…and Luke Cage punches his head right off his body, then Cap shorts out the electrified baddie. Once Luke gets over the shock of seeing Steve alive again, he locates the object his wife Jessica sent him back for: the baby’s favorite binky. As they stand there, a laser sight spots Steve’s chest. The gunman on a nearby roof is Nick Fury….

As Spidey and Spidey-Woman battle on the rooftop, she shakes off the Mandrill’s influence slightly so that she realizes what she is doing but still can’t fight it. Spidey begs her to try harder. Suddenly she knocks him to the roof and unleashes a fatal blast. Mandrill and Griffin go closer to observe and the two Spideys spring their trap; he punches out Griffin while she has to be restrained from killing her tormentor.

As Nick Fury holds the three Avengers at bay, he speaks the words that shut down any Life Model Decoy. Convinced that the three are human, he steps forward with his Secret Warriors, who were hiding nearby. The group is suddenly attacked by HAMMER sky forces and, after an intense battle, emerges victorious. Steve leads the team back to the Avengers safe house where the heroes are overwhelmed to see Steve alive again. The TV news reports that Thor has been defeated by Norman Osborn and the Dark Avengers. Steve takes a quick headcount of the team and calls out, "Avengers Assemble!"
