Secret Avengers #17 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Steve Rogers shows the Secret Avengers film that was smuggled out of Serbia by an MI:13 agent. It shows a massive truck firing electromagnetic levitation fields, pulling people out of their homes and into the truck. None of the major powers want further involvement in the region so it’s up to the Secret Avengers to stop these mass abductions. Steve, Sharon Carter, Valkyrie, and War Machine head to the area in a Quincarrier and discover that not only is the truck shielded from surveillance, its protecting air cover is as well. They are attacked by a fighter plane manned by a pilot with a robot brain. Sharon hits the switch which splits the carrier into three parts, one of which crashes into the enemy jet, destroying it. The other two pieces land and Steve emerges on a motorcycle, Val on Aragorn, and Rhodey by jet. The three engage in an exciting running battle with the truck, ending with Val slicing it in two with her sword and War Machine blasting the cab apart. They trace its signals back to its point of origin and find a former A.I.M. installation with several hundred human brains creating a living computer; nothing can be done for the victims….
